• Not an equal split: Of every dollar in property tax collected in San
Joaquin County, 18 cents go to county government, 57 cents go to

has lifted a playoff ban against Franklin High School’s winter and

Stockton Unified School District board said he wanted the suspended
district athletic director fired.
Profiles in courage: 64 Blue Dog Democrats in the House refused a $50

pledge not to support any tax cut or mandatory spending increase that
would expand the national debt.
