Partnership job development programs bring in nearly 5,000 jobs in 2013

The San Joaquin Partnership, a private, non-profit economic development organization marketing San Joaquin County, CA, attracted seven new businesses, expanded six and retained one, according to its annual report, presented last week by President and CEO Michael Ammann, at the annual breakfast.

The annual Report is now online at the San Joaquin Partnership website. "We still see the same trends," Ammann said. "The trends of folks migrating east out of the East Bay and out of the Bay Area." "This manufacturing trend investment should continue with the implementation of "California Competes" incentives in 2014 that are focused on attracting manufacturing jobs," Ammann writes in the annual report.

Missing snowboarder found near Soda Springs


A snowboarder who was missing for more than 24 hours was found Tuesday night.

Abraham Finkelstein, 25, was able to find a home in Soda Springs Tuesday evening and then called for help. Nevada County Sheriff's Sgt. Sam Brown said Finkelstein suffered some superficial frostbite, but is expected to be ok.

Finkelstein and his father became separated Monday evening when stormy weather set in over the Tahoe National Forest. The two were headed to a cabin near Donner Summit when they were separated. Finkelstein was dressed for the elements and had his snowboard and associated gear with him when he was reported missing around 5 p.m.

Brown said Finkelstein got turned around and ended up near Castle Creek. He used his snowboard to travel around day and night using his headlamp.
