Customers chip in after military veterans' donations stolen


The community of Lodi is rallying behind a local A&W restaurant after a thief stole donations they'd been collecting for the Wounded Warrior Project. Staff believe the suspect is a repeat customer.

"The guy came in, ordered ice cream, and as soon as she turned around to make it for him, he grabbed it and ran out the door," Petter Knight of A&W said. "It's terrible. We were pretty sad."

The theft absolutely crushed employees. The thief made off with about $50 in Wounded Warrior donations.

"The Lodi police responded quickly," Knight said. "They were looking at our video within an hour."

And they weren't the only ones. Knight uploaded the security video to Facebook, reaching 20,000 people by Saturday morning.

"I think it's horrible and I hope they catch the guy," one customer responded.

officials hoping water hyacinth less of a problem in 2015


STOCKTON - Few people will forget the images of water hyacinth in Stockton and around the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta from 2014. Aerial views over downtown Stockton could have convinced newcomers there was no water under the huge swath of green growth.

"Last year was the first to bring many aspects of the boating industry to a complete halt," RiverPoint Landing Marina owner Richard Dunn said. If it happens again this year, "boaters, fisherman and tourists will finally throw up their hands and go elsewhere."

But at a state Senate hearing held in downtown Stockton Friday, Sen. Cathleen Galgiani, D-Stockton, also heard some encouraging news.
