Over the last few years I’ve been challenging myself to use more and throw out less in the kitchen. And I’m in good company.

Police release new details in case of man shot, killed by off-duty cop


The Modesto Police Department released new details Saturday in the case of an off-duty Ceres police officer shooting and killing a man with a BB gun.

Modesto police said Ceres Police Officer Thomas Miller was at Beyer Park on March 29 with Rosio Moland around 10:30 p.m. Investigators said 29-year-old Jason Moland confronted Miller with a BB gun, and Miller responded with gunfire.

"While the events leading up to the shooting are still under investigation, detectives believe the confrontation ensued as a result of Moland's suspicions of an evolving relationship by Rosio outside their marriage," police department spokesperson Heather Graves said in a statement Saturday.

TURLOCK — At some point we’ll all need to drive lower emission vehicles if we hope to improve air quality in the Valley, clean air advocates say.

Volkmar Kunerth is on a mission to make that transition a smart move for individuals and businesses.

Kunerth sells scooters, e-bikes and ATVs through his dealership EV-Mobility Solutions in Turlock.

“I’m convinced it’s not only better for the environment and clean air but also it makes economic sense since the operation costs of those vehicles are much, much lower than the comparable combustible vehicle,” said Kunerth. “Payback time is only a couple of years.”... Read More
