Officials are proposing a new home for the homeless encampment that has taken root at Beard Brook Park — under the nearby Ninth Street Bridge in Modesto, CA, which they say will be drier, cleaner and safer.
The intersection near Riverbank, CA — and Amtrak railroad tracks — where Stanislaus County Deputy Tony Hinostroza died in a crash last month, underwent upgrades to make it safer. So why are accidents soaring?

Sixty-year-old Robert Weigel, who has lived most of his life in Modesto and surrounding areas, is making the most of one of those chances right now.
