“Lodi” was also  on Creedance Clearwater Revival’s 1969 Green River album

Oh, lord…

Although it was the “B” side of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 1969 single record, “Bad Moon Rising” (which peaked at No. 52 on the Top 100 singles charts), in many ways the song “Lodi” has endured as one of the group’s catchiest, most memorable tunes – its story line (being “stuck” in a nowheresville town), one that almost anyone can identify with.

But it was never a true story... Read More

STOCKTON - It wasn't about gangs, guns, or drugs. A shooting Sunday afternoon that sent two young Stockton boys to the hospital was allegedly over a dog.

A 15-year-old boy was taken to UC Davis Medical Center for critical injuries. His 12-year-old cousin is at a hospital in San Joaquin County and is now recovering from surgery. Their families talked about what happened moments before shots rang out.

"The culprit accused my nephew and the other victim of trying to steal his dog," said Terrance Evans.

Evans said his nephew, 12-year-old Zacchaeus Kinsey and his 15-year-old cousin Jonathan Rockingham were walking with two friends along Pilgrim Street when a resident accused them of stealing his dog.

"It was confirmed there was no dog taken," Evans said.

I first met Alicia Valenzuela last year when I led an art flash mob parol (Filipino Star Lantern) activity at DeltaFusion.  Her gratitude made an impression. 

Since then I have learned just how special Alicia truly is, having graduated from UOP and being devoted to making real change.  She has a unique point of view believing that, “artists and scientists are one in the same.”

As a freshman Alicia started the bottle cap project collecting over 10,000 bottle caps making some of them into a mural. Alicia likes using the things around her to create art.  Where others see post consumer waste she sees value, “because nothing is really trash.”
