MODESTO - The two-story Forever 21 will soon be a thing of the past for Modesto Shoppers.

The Drones Are Coming

Written by


The skies of Patterson and Tracy could be buzzing in the near future by the sound of drones.

No need for alarm though, the drones are a new development announced this weekend by shopping giant Amazon. The service, called "Prime Air," promises 30 minute package deliveries weighing less than 5 pounds to residents living within 10 miles of a fulfillment center.

The program is not ready for take-off (pun intended) as the program does not match FAA regulations. Changes in the FAA regulations are anticipated as soon as 2015.

Other companies flying with the idea (haha) of drone delivery include Dominos Pizza and Burrito bomber.

Concern Over "Fragile" Downtown Ecosystem

Written by


A group of several tombstones loomed over 10th street place over the past few days in Modesto.

The tombstones bore the names of several downtown businesses that have gone under over the past few years in the downtown area.

The display was a silent protest said Kimberly Humke, in the hopes of creating awareness of what she called a "fragile downtown ecosystem."

"It's a shocking number of businesses." Humke said. "I want this to generate a community dialogue to help and fix and turn around the direction our downtown is getting into."

Humke noted high rents, empty storefronts, and lack of activity as contributors to a downturn in business.

"Every time a business closes, it makes it less desirable and less encouraging for other businesses to come to downtown."

Humke says a vibrant downtown and good public safety strategies is a good step toward attracting and growing businesses.

Local Business Helps Travel Sports Teams

Written by

Youth sports teams have enough to deal with as it is. Practice, equipment, uniforms, fundraisers and more. The unnecessary but necessary headache of booking a hotel for travel tournaments and out of town games is thrown into the mix as well. It takes time, and effort to research and find the right hotel. Time that can be spent elsewhere.

That's where a local business, Athletic Accommodations comes in. The service they provide is simple. All the research and negotiations for traveling teams takes place behind the scenes. They research locations, negotiate rates, and handle contracts all for the sports team. This all comes at the whopping cost of free.

The service is targeted to finding the best rates for the teams' budget. This takes pressure off the team coordinators, and helps them save money that could be used elsewhere to support the team.

Founder Nikki Hoffman, who is a decade long veteran of the hospitality industry, noticed the need for the service after getting phone calls from coaches who needed help with traveling accommodations. By forming the company and providing the service, she has been able to make the traveling process seamless and keep teams focused on their game.

SACRAMENTO – Gov. Jerry Brown is using his revised budget plan to call for changes to the way public schools are funded. He released the plan Tuesday morning.

Brown wants to use much of the surge in 2013 tax revenue to funnel $2.9 billion to K-12 public schools and community colleges, as called for by Proposition 98.

Brown also wants to send more money to districts with lower-income children or students who are learning English.


Mother’s Day officially may be celebrated on May 12, but area businesses are trying to make moms happy every day of the year by offering options that make it easier for them to shop.

That’s because marketing to moms can really pay off. According to the Marketing to Moms Coalition’s 2011 State of the American Mom Report, moms represent a $2.4 trillion market. Targeting moms isn’t a new trend, said Carrie Cardoza Bordona, president of Cardoza & Associates marketing firm in Modesto.
