Warm Orzo Salad

Warm Orzo Salad

It’s officially spring which means it’s time to convert from the cozy comfort foods of winter to the bright and airy flavors of springtime! I recently came across this recipe for Warm Orzo Salad in the spring issue of Good Housekeeping and immediately knew I was going to love it. Now, don’t be fooled—pasta might not seem light and airy, but the amount of fresh shallots, squash and sweet radishes that are packed into this dish are going to seal the deal. This recipe is perfect for a quick weeknight meal since it can be made in about 45 minutes. The recipe features simple ingredients that I already had in my pantry so the workload was even lighter...

Three teen students assaulted near Turlock schools

Three teen students assaulted near Turlock schools


SACRAMENTO - Police in Turlock are stepping up patrols around several schools after three teens were assaulted in less than 24 hours.

Police say one girl was groped as she was walking home from school Monday afternoon.

Two more students were assaulted on their way to school Tuesday morning.

The attacks put parents, students and staff at Turlock Junior High and Pitman High schools on high alert. A total of three female students were targeted in the area on three separate occasions.

The Turlock Unified School District sent out an automated phone message to all parents, warming them to take precautions.

The first incident happened Monday afternoon as a 16-year-old girl was walking home from school on Christoffersen Parkway. Police say a man grabbed her inappropriately. She was able to free herself and ran to a nearby church to ask for help.

Popular Stanislaus golf course closing due to drought


STOCKTON - One of the two golf courses built at Diablo Grande in the hills above Patterson will be unplayable soon as the grass there gets dryer and eventually dies. Course managers say it's not possible to keep the course alive during the drought.

"We were given by the Department of Water Resources zero allocations this year for water," said course manager Mike Dunlop.

The two courses and homes at Diablo Grande have traditionally survived on a combination of surface water and water from the nearby California Aquaduct. But with no water coming from the State Water Project this year, community managers have made the choice to close The Legends course while keeping open The Ranch course, which has homes around it.
