University of the Pacific’s Student Investment Fund climbs to $3 million

An investment fund managed by University of the Pacific students that routinely outperforms Wall Street indicators reached a monumental benchmark of $3 million.

The Student Investment Fund portfolio – valued at roughly $2.5 million just a year ago – is managed by students in Pacific’s Eberhardt School of Business and is one of the largest student-run funds in the western United States.

The SIF hit $3 million for the first time in early October, but market fluctuations caused the fund to dip below that benchmark. The fund returned to the $3 million mark this month.

Spring into fun at Micke Grove Zoo Camp!

Spring into fun at Micke Grove Zoo Camp!

San Joaquin County, CA – This March, Micke Grove Zoo is offering its first public Spring Zoo Camp experience for children ages 5 through 10. Campers will spring into fun as we use our imaginations and the plants and animals living in Micke Grove Zoo and Park to explore the different places animals call “home.” Whether it is a frosty mountain peak or the humid heat of a rainforest jungle, we’ll be questing after some of the most unique animal habitats in the world.

Campers will venture across the oak woodlands in search of squirrels, galls and forest surprises; dive into the world of inland water bodies springing to life with microscopic creatures; climb the ladder of the rainforest canopies; safari across the sands in search of life in the desert; and explore the mysteries of the deep dark ocean. No other local adventure could ever compare!

MODESTO — Mayor Garrad Marsh called for a half-cent sales tax increase to pay for public safety and economic development in his State of the City address Thursday.

Saying such a tax increase would amount to the cost of a cup of coffee, or about $4 every month, Marsh called on residents to press the City Council to put the proposal on November’s ballot.

“I love our city, but I know we are not all we can be,” Marsh said. “Without greater revenues, Modesto will not be as safe as you deserve, will not address gangs and drugs, child abuse and family conflicts, homelessness and vagrancy and petty crimes.”... Read More
