MODESTO — Unable to find part time work, Enochs High School senior Annette Isaac decided to enroll in her school’s Employment Opportunity pathway.

“I wanted to do it because I had been looking for a job for a while, and it’s hard because nobody wants to hire somebody that doesn’t have experience,” Isaac said.

After completing a Walgreens internship arranged through her teacher, Isaac was hired. She credits the course for giving her the tools she needed to land the job.

Modesto residents review the hit TV series set in their city

Some Modesto residents are giving a thumbs down to how a hit television show depicts their city.

ABC's "American Crime" tells the story of a hate crime in Modesto.

"This doesn't make me proud to be from Modesto," resident Mekila Martin said after watching Thursday's episode. "It definitely doesn't paint the picture of the most ideal place to be living.

"But you know, it's TV, they're trying to get viewers," Martin said.

News10 gathered a few Modesto residents Thursday in the city's downtown to watch the show. Chris Murphy is a long-time resident and publisher of ModestoView magazine, which focuses on arts and entertainment.

"As a citizen, I think it's really doing something bad to our community," Murphy said. "I think they could have called it any town and accomplished their need for a show."

Vandalism of Salida home to be investigated as hate crime

Sheriff's investigators want to know the identity of a man captured on a home security camera vandalizing a Salida home Saturday night with homophobic graffiti.

Stanislaus County sheriff's Deputy Anthony Bejaran said the words "Fxxx Leave" in black writing was scrawled on the victims' Sun West Drive garage. The vehicle in the driveway and other property was also vandalized, he said.

The graffiti is being considered a possible hate crime because the victims happen to be gay.

Chris Domnick and Robert Womble have been together for four years. Within the last six months, the couple put up gay pride flags in the front porch of their Salida home.

"The neighbors here do know we're a gay couple," Domnick said. "We get along very well with a lot of the people in the neighborhood."

But not everyone seems to be okay with it.
