Halloween fun for the weekend

Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love it because it also signals the beginning of fall. I used to love getting dressed up for it as a child.

I’m a runner. It’s my form of exercise and stress relief away from work. A short run for me is a five-mile jaunt around the city of Tracy. I run with two friends for six or more miles in Mountain House up to three times a week. I spend a lot of time putting foot […]

The monster pie-cake, invented by Los Angeles humorist Charles Phoenix, was a crazy venture that took us nearly 10 hours when all was said and done. (To be fair, Genette did most […]

Google shows ‘every search is a quest’

“You like this sort of thing,” my friend wrote in an email. Under it was a link to Google Search Stories, a fun and interactive way to make a short video based on a string of searches. “Every search is a quest. Every quest is a story. These videos show anyone can do anything when […]

Training day(s)

Record Copy Editor Kevin W. Hecteman spent some time training in the Online Department over the past couple months working to learn how to shoot and edit video.

Spring Break, with a little snow

Stockton education reporter Roger Phillips sent me this image a couple minutes ago, captioning it “driving home from Reno on I-80.” Roger is on vacation this week, as are all the students in Stockton Unified School District.
