First-time California visitors traveling along the freeway sometimes are taken aback when, just about the time they reach Stockton, they see a big ocean-going freighter that seems a little like a whale swimming in your local river. After driving hundreds of miles through California’s hot, dry interior, it just doesn’t compute that there should be a ship anywhere even close. Yet ships do call on Stockton, and have for decades, as they make their way to the state’s interior through an intricate set of waterways sometimes called the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta or the Sacramento Delta, or just the California Delta.

Memories of a Trip to the California Delta Yes, this is a "repeat" from years ago when we were on our way to the California Delta, (such good memories) and we stopped overnight at a rest area at the top of the Grapevine located at the Tejon Pass. When we drove in we were startled to see that it was filled with 18 wheeler trucks, many of them with engines going full blast. We found a spot (white on each side like a supermarket lot).

Formula stretches drug products [Re: “Baby formula thefts leave him sad,” Our Readers Write, Sept. 10] I appreciate Dr. Barnes’ concern for babies, and for the parents responsible for their care. He may be justified in citing Victor Hugo for all we know about the shoplifter, but it is highly unlikely. A quick Internet search would have informed him that the thief more likely had cash flow in mind than a hungry mouth to feed. Some months ago I wondered why baby formula was suddenly keeping company with the cigarettes, booze and cold remedies behind locked doors at a local grocery store.
