To help farmers make the transition, this legislation would not take effect right away. I successfully advocated for amendments to AB 1066 that would delay full implementation of overtime pay until 2022.
Ten-month-old Jaxson Bermele had a problem affecting his liver, a vital organ. The problem was so serious that without treatment, his liver could have failed. But luckily for Jaxson and his family, Valley Children’s own Dr. Roberto Gugig is the only doctor in central California – and among the few in the state – certified to perform a remarkable procedure that fixes serious digestive problems without subjecting children to major surgery.
You’re all fabulous people. Simply great. Show us how great by entering The Bee’s Beat Our Caption contest. This should be like taking candy from a baby because the SW Parra cartoon is about the Clintons.
As a former executive manager in the probation department, I am both dismayed and embarrassed by the judges’ actions in the matter of the “leave of absence” of Chief Probation Officer Rick Chavez. The lack of substantiating proof of the accusations for removal are paramount in this matter.
America’s melting pot is history’s sole exception of E pluribus unum inclusivity: a successful multiracial society bound by a common culture, language and values. But this is a historic aberration with a future that is now in doubt.
In a Legislature controlled by Democrats, where the American Civil Liberties Union and gay rights organizations have clout, religious colleges in the state had good cause to worry they were heading to a slaughter, and they set out to find representation. They had difficulty finding takers.
Detectives come out of retirement to solve a 1996 cold case murder. Nathan Bond, 10, hits the big time by reciting the Constitution; Jalen Bailey, 8, is a philanthropist and baker; Fresno State students are signing up by the dozens for the new minor in Hmong language studies. Meanwhile, the makers of life-saving EpiPens gouge the public.
Saturday night at the Fresno Convention Center Exhibit Hall, a gala, black-tie optional affair, billed as a “gala evening of dinner, dancing and entertainment,” will celebrate Police Chief Jerry Dyer’s anniversary and benefit Project STEALTH. That is a program that uses police chaplains to mentor runaway youth, and it is credited with helping kids overcome challenges in school and at home.
We are making progress in our efforts to help the children of our community thrive, but we still have a long way to go. Reaching our goals will require leadership and teamwork from our political leaders, adoption of best practices and the continued hard work of many citizens.
We are hardly bothered by the routine practice of presidents rewarding big donors with cushy ambassadorships, appointments to portentous boards or invitations to state dinners. The bright line seems to be outright bribery. Anything short of that is considered – not just for the Clintons, for everyone – acceptable corruption.
I would just as soon not defend Trump, especially on immigration. But it doesn’t seem fair to label as a “flip-flop” what could just be the separate elements of a balanced approach. President Obama has deported a record number of people while still using executive action to spare others that fate. We can’t treat all these people the same. That’s common sense, which explains why you don’t hear this sort of thing in proposals coming from Washington – a place where common sense goes to die.
So city of Fresno spokesman Mark Standriff is now an angry tweeter. Was it not Fresno City Councilmember Lee Brand who is the councilman for the district with the tainted water for at least six years and has done nothing about it? Fresno County Supervisor Henry Perea is only trying to shed light on the subject to actually help the people living with unnatural water flowing from their taps.
The Democratic Party in California has become a bigoted organization which seems to despise middle-class families, the most common victims of crime. What is really sad is that over 60 percent of the voters of this state are going to keep voting for people who don’t seem to give a damn about their safety and well-being.
I read in the business section “Fresno water season extended.” I’m wondering why the electronic signs along Highway 99 say outdoor watering should be limited due to the severe drought. Is that like one hand doesn’t know what the other is doing?
The photograph makes The Woman in the Silver Mercedes look like a lunatic: wide-eyed, grinning with mouth agape, hands raised with palms facing outward, both middle fingers extended toward a group of angry cyclists. And it’s a photo that, without a doubt, she’s now sorry she ever posed for.
First 5 Fresno County and Fresno County Office of Education held an open house Wednesday, June 1, 2016, for its Lighthouse for Children, a new classroom and child care facility in downtown Fresno. Lighthouse offers classrooms for early education and child care for children ages 6 weeks through 5 years.
