Abstract art play structure, Beard Brook Park worth saving, restoring

As Modesto changed, so did Beard Brook Park. The all-but-forgotten abstract structure merely represents another piece of a decaying park that likely is the last place parents would take their children to play in Modesto. Liability concerns long ago changed the designs and materials used in modern-day play structures. The city needs to save both, and the Modesto Art Museum is willing to help with the art piece.

Stanislaus County listed 13th statewide in registered sex offenders

Stanislaus County ranks No. 13 when it comes to having the most registered sex offenders among the state’s 58 counties, with 958. Los Angeles ranked No. 1 with 12,400. Alpine County ranked 58th with one, who lives in the tiny eastern Sierra community of Woodfords. But the numbers, the sheriff said, aren’t accurate and are a moving target. Comparing ratios is more flattering.
