Stanislaus River Flows Will Stay High Through Memorial Day Weekend

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/25/2018 08:35 AM
Sonora, CA...The Bureau of Reclamation is alerting the public to take extra safety precautions this Memorial Day weekend near the Stanislaus River below Goodwin Dam due to high flows. River flows were ramped up May 10 and will be maintained through the end of May, creating hazardous conditions for river recreation. “All river recreation activities pose safety risks and we always encourage the public to be mindful of hazards. This weekend, in particular, we urge the public to have an abundance of caution near the river,” said Drew Lessard, manager of Reclamation’s Central California Area Office. “The high flows are hazardous for anyone trying to swim or boat in the river. The river is flowing at 3,000 cubic feet per second – that’s higher than normal for the end of May and too high for in-stream recreation.”

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/25/2018 07:58 AM
Ione, CA..Joseph Franco, Jr. passed away after a brief illness on March 20, 2018 at the age of 88. Joe was born April 25, 1929 in Harlem, New York City to Jose Franco and Esther Morales Franco. He began his career in the US Army at age 17 and was a veteran of both the Korean Conflict and the Vietnam War. Joe was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for Meritorious Achievement in Ground Operations Against Hostile Forces in Vietnam. After marrying Patricia Lou Germeyer in 1953 he served as a military policeman and prison guard, moving with his family to many posts across the US, including Ft. Benning, GA, Ft. Jay, NY, Ft. Leavenworth, KS and Ft. Huachuca, AZ. Joe also served overseas in both Germany and Okinawa. Joe retired from the military in 1970, at the rank of Sergeant First Class and eventually settled in Pleasanton, California where he worked as a guard at the Oakland Museum. He was a lifelong baseball fan and adopted the Oakland A’s as his home team. Upon retirement he and his wife moved to Wilseyville in the Sierras, where Joe was involved with the West Point Lions Club for many years, as well as the West Point chapters of the VFW and the American Legion. In recent years they resided in Ione, California, eventually moving to Stockton.
