Heald student: School may still be collecting loan money


Heald College may have gone out of business and shut its doors, but a Stockton man is concerned the school is still taking his student loan money.

Shannon Pattee said he received an email from Heald just a few days ago indicating his loan provider had paid $2,000 to the school on his behalf.

"These are loans that I'm responsible to pay back for," Pattee said.

He was taking classes at the Heald campus in Stockton. Pattee said his loan provider could not confirm the money was transferred to Heald. He said despite many calls, he's not getting any answers.

"They told me to call the Department of Education, I called them. They told me to call someone else, I called them," Pattee said. "I've been going in a vicious circle for the last month."

8th annual "Rina's Run" 5K/Half Marathon in Ripon draws more than 400

8th annual "Rina's Run" 5K/Half Marathon in Ripon draws more than 400

More than 200 volunteers, including the entire Ripon city council, turned out to assist the 430 runners who participated in Saturday's "Rina's Run" on the new all-weather track the previous seven "Rina's" helped to fund. It's named in honor of the late Rina Brocchini; the Brocchini Family Foundation has been a major supporter of the Ripon High Stadium Project since its inception. This year's race raised funds and awareness towards the need to replace the inaccessible bathrooms and unsafe bleachers. The Ripon High Stadium Project has gone to Washington DC three times with the San Joaquin Council of Governments as a regionally beneficial project and has continued to be a hub of grassroots community fundraising that has unified virtually every non-profit, including 900+ volunteers and donors from Ripon's community of 15,000. Vernon Transportation's Gregg Wilson sponsored a special $1,000 cash prize for the first runner to beat a time of 1:11 in the half marathon.

Stockton mayor spends night with homeless


STOCKTON – Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva spent Wednesday night sleeping with the homeless people of the city. He said the night was meant to give hope and encouragement to those who spend their nights on the streets.

Silva, who was joined by his 10-year-old son Caden, added the night was also a time to bring people together with similar goals.

"We're out here to figure out how we can put our resources together to bring mental health services and other services such as drug counseling, alcohol counseling, and bring those services directly to the homeless folks here in Stockton," Silva said.

Wednesday's activities included dinner, showers, haircuts and some fun with bingo and a D.J. People were also able to register to vote. At the end of the evening, event attendees gathered around to watch a movie.
