Visit McHenry Mansion to see McClure collection remnants

The mid-1970s sale of McClure Ranch to the city of Modesto came with big plans, but no money or follow through. More than 100 pieces of furniture and other items deeded from the McClures were stored in John Muir School, and three-fourths were lost in the 2007 blaze. If you want to see any of the collection on display now, you need to visit McHenry Mansion, not the McClure place.

When murder cases past and more recent have plenty of appeal(s)

Before Scott Peterson, Cary Stayner or any of the other more high-profile defendants from the Valley went to prison, Modesto experienced Elbert Lee Easley. In fact, Easley’s 1979 murder trial was outsourced to Monterey County because the case drew so much media attention in Modesto. Despite rumors to the contrary, he’s still alive and in state prison.

Chopra fraud case could be rare one when it comes to restitution

Convicted of fraud in a federal case, Aruna Chopra of Modesto was ordered to pay $4.2 million in restitution. The property where she wanted to build a theater complex, hotel, shopping center and condominiums is for sale, and when it sells, the victims – who include the city of Modesto and lenders – will be made whole or close to it. That is rare in the world of restitution.

Hit-and-run crash becomes giving moment for MJC auto body students

Modesto Junior College auto body staff, students and others step up to help Empire’s Anthony De La Garza, a severely disabled man whose van was damaged by a hit-and-run driver in December. Awaiting remade wheelchair-lift parts, it soon will be as good as new, and he got his first look during an emotional unveiling Friday at the school.

The F-word Geragos should have used: ‘Fail’

During a panel discussion about a documentary film depicting Scott Peterson as a victim deserving a new trial, his trial attorney, Mark Geragos, claimed he dropped an F-bomb on Judge Alfred Delucchi. Perhaps the F-word here should be “fail” and directed at the lawyer himself.

Jeff Jardine: Beleaguered Patterson councilwoman mulls running for another term

The political saga continues in Patterson, where Councilwoman Sheree Lustgarten no longer sits next to the councilman a restraining order keeps her away from except during meetings. The city wants the state attorney general to help oust her, claiming she perjured herself, committed fraud and is harassing others in the city. “This madness must end,” city officials wrote in a letter to Patterson residents.

State parks name protection bill strikes fear into Columbia candy maker

Nelson’s Columbia Candy Kitchen began turning out chocolates and other sweets in 1922, more than two decades before Columbia became a state park. After Delaware North claimed trademark rights in Yosemite National Park, state wants to make sure its parks are affected similarly. But the bill’s language, if left unchanged, would strip ownership of longtime businesses and intellectual properties.
