Mystery over, but not misery, for family of missing Modesto woman

Lisa Toledo Valdez disappeared in July 2015, last seen near Dryden Park golf course along the Tuolumne River in Modesto. Her remains were discovered in another river in another county more than two months ago, and DNA confirmed the identity. Her family, suspecting the worst for the past few months, at least knows her fate, which, they say, is better than living with the unknown.

Flying high: Modesto couple touring country as B-29 Fifi crew members

Glen and Mary Mount helped bring the only flying B-29 to Modesto in 2014. Now the Modesto residents are part of a crew that flies Fifi – the same type plane as the ones that dropped atomic bombs on Japan in 1945 – on tours all over the United States. And Glenn Mount will be aboard when another B-29, Doc, flies Sunday for the first time since 1955.
