Car Czar
That new car you may want to buy this weekend may not be at all possible. We list the cars that are so hot that you literally can’t get one! And it’s a common occurrence: mobile mechanic repair. It sounds great and convenient, but is it advisable? Or even legal? Doug explores mobile mechanics and shares when, or even if…it’s a good idea?

Sea Otter Swim Lessons
In California, drowning is a leading cause of injury-related deaths among children under the age of five, and a Loomis swimming school is working to change that.

May the 4th Modesto Holiday
The phrase “May the force be with you” has been a part of the global lexicon. The phrase was created by Modesto native George Lucas and it symbolizes the magic and influence of his epic film, Star Wars. What better way to celebrate this icon and his hometown than to create a commemorative holiday right where it all began with his breakthrough film “American Graffiti”?

Manly Minute: You Have A Gambling Addiction
Compulsive gambling is often referred to as a “silent killer” simply because an addiction to gambling does not always readily stand out. The signs of gambling addiction are often overlooked as something else such as a desire to play games, an urge to win money or anything but a compulsive disorder that is out of control. Often times, the desire to gamble is so strong and the addiction is so serious that severe personal and social consequences, even death, can result. Learn more
