Check Before You Burn begins 11th season

Check Before You Burn begins 11th season

The Valley’s most important regulation for wintertime air-pollution reduction begins its 11th season Nov. 1.

Check Before You Burn, which has resulted in historically clean wintertime air quality in the Valley, continues through February. This wood-burning curtailment program is a critical tool in minimizing harmful particulate pollution.

“The understanding and cooperation of the Valley’s residents has made this regulation the single-most cost-effective regulation on record in the air basin,” said Seyed Sadredin, the Air District’s executive director and air pollution control officer. “It’s a matter of public health.”

Something Special this way comes

Something Special this way comes

Something truly special is coming to the Brewhouse on November 7 as part of their Rockabilly Cruise Nights. Roddy Radiation's Skabilly Rebels (featuring Lynval Golding for this west coast run.)

Roddy and Lynval played guitar and did vocals for The Specials, the band that coined the term Two Tone and had seven UK Top 10 singles, many of which they will be performing when they play in Modesto. The Skabilly Rebels as the name infers perform a mix of SKA and Rockabilly so put on your dancing shoes and get ready to feel the beat.

One of California's biggest names in Rockabilly, The Chop Tops will be returning and are sure not to disappoint. They have been performing all over the US for 18 years and just completed their 13th full US Tour.

Free flu vaccine clinics for San Joaquin county residents

Free flu vaccine clinics for San Joaquin county residents

San Joaquin County Public Health Services (PHS) will provide seasonal influenza vaccinations free of charge on Monday, October 28, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (or until supplies run out), at two community sites in Stockton: Delta College in Upper Danner Hall and downtown, next to the Stockton WorkNet office on South Lincoln Street. These special flu vaccine clinics are open to everyone, 3 years of age and older. They are “walk-in” clinics and no appointment is required.

Those who do not have health insurance and those at highest risk of complications from the flu, including pregnant women and persons with long term medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic illness, are especially encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. Flu vaccination is also important for people who live with or care for people at high risk for influenza-related complications, and for anyone caring for newborns.
