ID=7141221

SACRAMENTO - A Stockton family's pleas for the return of their missing beloved dog were answered Monday morning.

Owner Nancy Burruel said she believed Zoe, a 10-year-old Yorkie, was stolen during a break-in at her home in the West Mendocino area of Stockton Wednesday, March 26.

Burruel said she left her home to run a few quick errands and when she returned she found the security gate open, the side door kicked in, and little Zoe gone.

Televisions, computers and jewelry were all stolen during the invasion but it was Zoe Burruel begged to have returned.

Old ships in delta may be on move again


STOCKTON - At Herman and Helen's Marina northwest of Stockton, it's no longer houseboats drawing attention. These days it's several old ships under renovation.

The largest is the Aurora at nearly 300 feet and built in the 1950s in Germany. It was a cruise ship and the owner of the Aurora hopes to restore it into a maritime museum.

"My goal: To make it the first luxury liner museum. We're thinking of loading this ship with artifacts from older vessels that are out of existence, and make this the place to find history of luxury liner ships," owner Chris Willson said.

Next to the Aurora is a Canadian minesweeper, and nearby, a ship that used to be a lighthouse supply vessel.

Inventures: Finding favorite food trucks with a new app


STOCKTON – A local startup is trying to feed your cravings for food trucks with a new app.

The app is called TastyCarty. Creators say it will revolutionize how you find your favorite food truck, while also helping drum up business for food truck owners like Christine Louie.

Louie opened "Mamas and the Tapas," a Caribbean fusion food truck one year ago. But it hasn't been an easy ride for her roaming restaurant on four wheels.

"I'm one of those older people that has a hard time dealing with social media," laughed Louie.

She knows social media is key but she's got a lot on her plate.

"Sometimes I don't get on there to say where I'm at an hour or two after I get to my destination," Louie explained.

That where TastyCarty comes in.

Young woman helps others escape prostitution


STOCKTON - After a life that included parental drug use, domestic violence, homelessness and even prostitution, speaking before a crowd of nearly 1,000 people was a breeze for Courtney Baldwin.

Baldwin, 20, was a featured speaker this week at the annual Women's Center Youth and Family Services luncheon where she told the story of living through and managing to escape those conditions.

Baldwin was born to drug addicts and moved to Stockton from the Bay Area when she was 4 years old to live with a foster family. She admits to being rebellious as a 15 year old and that began a series of poor decisions that eventually led her to stripping and prostitution in Stockton.

"This was to pay bills and get food. I would use men to have a place to sleep, or get food or something. Where else was I going to get it?" Baldwin said in an interview with News10.
