50 YEARS AGO: It was announced that the State Highway Commission would work with the city of Modesto in its effort to build two highway rest stops along U.S. 99, on land that was left over from the freeway construction. However, the State Department of Public Works said under state law, the land must be sold for fair market value. State Assemblyman John G. Veneman of Stanislaus County asked the commission to hold back the two parcels of land until the end of the 1967 legislative session and to provide to him, in writing, the legal reason why the State Division of Highways could not return the property to the city.
