July 15, 2015
Sent back to the drawing board by a judge, state drought regulators issued new water rights curtailment notices to thousands of farmers and other Californians in an effort to keep a crucial water-use regulation regime on track. Legal experts said the rewritten notices appear to satisfy the judge's objections. "The board has done exactly what the court has asked for," said Jennifer Harder, assistant professor of law and a water-rights expert.

California, U.S. officials defend Delta tunnels plan against uncertainties
July 13, 2015
State and federal officials Monday defended key revisions to Gov. Jerry Brown's plan to build water tunnels through the Delta, but acknowledged the changes could generate second thoughts among the water users who would pay for the project. Jeff Michael, director of the Center for Business and Policy Research, said the revisions erase $10 billion worth of economic value over the life of the project, undermining its worth.

Twice bitten: White-collar crime victims mostly unpaid despite restitution orders
July 11, 2015
At the rate approved by a federal judge, it will take convicted swindler Tony Daniloo more than 10,000 years to repay what he stole from his victims. Other victims of Stanislaus County's more notorious white-collar criminals have similar stories. Several victims have died waiting. "There is no way to force them to pay restitution," said Peggy Vargas, staff attorney at the McGeorge School of Law's Victim Resource Center. "You can't force them to work because that would be slavery. If they have no assets, there's nothing to seize."

Summer windfall as colleges rent out space while students are on break
July 15, 2015
Across California and the nation, colleges and universities seek summer-time income from otherwise underutilized facilities and ways to keep maintenance crews, cooks and other employees working year-round. Outside groups also can bring unusual flavor to a campus. This summer, the University of the Pacific in Stockton will be home once again to a local folk dance camp, along with a tennis tournament.

Tunnels plan pushes forward
July 13, 2015
Construction on Gov. Jerry Brown's twin tunnels could begin in 2018, though a top state official said it remains unclear how much water the tunnels would convey to justify their $15 billion cost. All this adds up to a "hugely risky project" for those water users, said Jeff Michael, director of the Center for Business and Policy Research. "There is so much uncertainty about the water yield and the return on investment," Michael said. "It's a massive risk for them."

California's dwindling teacher supply rattling districts' nerves
July 14, 2015
Just as California school districts are facing new pressures to implement the Common Core State Standards and other key educational reforms, many of them are struggling with what some officials are calling the early impacts of a long-feared teacher shortage. Aspire Public Schools has established the Aspire Teacher Residency program, a partnership with University of the Pacific, that pairs a teacher candidate with a master teacher in a year-long tutelage culminating in a master's degree in instruction and a preliminary teaching credential.

The Tomorrow Project program welcomes hundreds of students throughout Stockton and the Central Valley with the goal of improving graduation rates. Reaching for the Stars is a project of José Hernández, a Stockton native, Pacific regent and alum, and former NASA astronaut.
