McLANE STUDENTS PRESENT POETRY AT SAN JOAQUIN RIVER EVENT

FRESNO – McLane High School students will showcase original poetry as part of a Respite by the River event featuring readings and performances related to life in the central San Joaquin Valley. McLane students’ collection of poems, “River Songs of Our Worlds, was created by small groups of students drawing on their own culture, background and interests with reflections on the literature and lives of Native Americans, Latinos, African Americans and Asian Americans.  

 

The project is the culmination of a year-long, San Joaquin River-focused collaboration between McLane’s ArtVenture Academy, 11th grade English language arts teachers and the River Center.

She was also on the faculty of numerous colleges, including Fresno State, Michigan State University and Johns Hopkins.

Fresno State was the first campus in the California State University system to have a named school of education.

Man Suspected of Robbing Woman of Her Purse

 

Twenty seven year old Rodger Rodriquez was taken into custody yesterday by Southeast Patrol officers after he robbed a victim of her purse at the Burger King restaurant located at Maple and Kings Canyon. 

 

Yesterday’s theft occurred at about 4 p.m. and took place after Rodriquez was released from jail just fourteen hours prior to his robbing the victim of her purse.  The crime was initially reported as a 911 domestic violence call between Rodriquez and his girlfriend and then later escalated into the reporting that Rodriquez had just robbed a victim inside the Burger King and was now fleeing in a Gold colored Jeep. 

 

Southeast officers who responded to the call quickly located Rodriquez driving in the area of Chestnut and Hamilton where he fled from his vehicle leaving his girlfriend and four small children behind.
