75 YEARS AGO: A new police radio was installed at Oakdale City Hall. The radio, which connected directly with the Modesto sheriff’s office, reported car thefts and highway holdups as soon as they happened, a technological advance officials hoped would prove efficacious in catching criminals more quickly.

Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
