Show a little Humankindess by donating to St. Jospeh's ER and other non-profits

Severe weather can be alarming and hazardous for drivers. The best defense is not to venture out on the roads during stormy weather, but if you must drive, use caution, common sense, and always be prepared.

BENEFITING THE EMERGENCY FOOD BANK OF STOCKTON/SAN JOAQUIN
The 12th Annual Thanksgiving Run and Walk Against Hunger, November 24, is expected to draw 4,000 participants to the Stockton Ports Baseball Park. (Fremont and Lincoln Streets in downtown Stockton.) The Michael David Family Foundation Run & Walk Against Hunger is a 5K run/walk, a 10K (run only) and a Kid's 1/4 mile run. It's an annual event for the whole family! The flat, fast out and back course takes participants through Stockton's Weber Point and Waterfront area. Walkers have their own scenic course along the waterfront. Strollers and wheel chairs are welcome, however, please start behind the runners to help avoid a possible collision.
