Ladies love this convicted felon's mug shot

On Thursday, a federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Jeremy Meeks, 30, with being a felon in possession of a firearm, specifically a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol.

Meeks was arrested last month during a police operation in Stockton. He faces several felony firearm charges. Meeks told News10 that he was a gang member and that he had a gun in the trunk of his car when he was arrested.

2014 Weekly Challenge #26: Eat LOCAL!

 

You hear it all the time: Eat Local! But why?

Here are 8 reasons to eat local foods (taken from about.com):

1. Local Foods Are Fresher (and Taste Better)

Food that was picked within the last few days tastes way better than food that was picked (unripened) and trucked thousands of miles to get to you. And fresh food lasts longer, too.

2. Local Foods Are Seasonal (and Taste Better)

One Year and a 100 Shows

Is it July already? I can not believe it, I really can't it has been a year since I moved back to Modesto and wow what a ride it has been(could only have been cooler if it was in a 57 Chevy.) I have reconnected with a lot of old friends and made so many new ones over the last year. In the past 12 months I have booked over a 100 shows with national, international and tons of locals. Brought  Legends and Icons such as Ian McLagan, Agent Orange, Roddy Radiation/Lynval Golding of the Specials, Annabella Lwin(of Bow Wow Wow), Reverend Horton Heat. Created two series Rockabilly Cruise Night and the Brew Ha Ha(with Jimmie Menezes) both of which have become very successful. Won a MAMA(Best Promoter) for myself and helped The Brewhouse win Best Venue. Earlier this year I started writing this column for the Modesto View and hope that you all have enjoyed reading it.

Firefighters urge extreme caution when using fireworks

Firefighters urge extreme caution when using fireworks


SACRAMENTO - The Sacramento area has seen an average of one serious fire a day in recent weeks. And when fireworks go on sale at noon on Saturday, fire agencies start their busiest week of the fire season.

"We're seeing fires daily," Sacramento Metro Fire spokesperson Michelle Eidam said. "We all know that, so what we want people to hear clearly is, enjoy the fireworks but be really, really smart about them."

Eidam points out that safe and sane fireworks are illegal for anyone under 18 to use.

"Because of the fire danger. There's a million reasons, but that's a hard and fast rule," Eidam said. "Parents will be cited, parents can be cited."

Eidam said safe and sane fireworks should never be modified and or used more than one at a time. Fireworks that are not safe and sane are easily recognized, she said.
