Ripon police memorial work

Massive granite stones weighing tons put in place

Large granite slabs were lifted into place Monday afternoon as part of the creation of a Ripon Police Department Memorial near the recently restored 1925 vintage jail house and adjacent to the Veterans' Memorial Museum and its wall of names of those who served.

The police memorial and the jail are the sum total of hundreds of volunteer hours from members of the Ripon community, according to the organizer of the joint effort, John Mangelos.

"We see how the people in Ripon step up to make for a better community," Mangelos said.  "They don't just take things for granted."

Three granite pieces, weighing as much as 17,000 pounds each, were lifted by crane from a flat bed truck following the Veterans' Day events earlier in the day adjacent to the historic Veterans' Museum - first a church and later the Ripon City Hall.

Offers pour in to replace stolen presents - time to help those helping others

David Cloxton's phone has been ringing with offers of help since word got out that thieves took about 200 Christmas presents the Good Samaritan Training Center charity planned to give to needy children over the holidays.

Callers have been offering money and toys to make up for the loss and to make sure each of the roughly 850 children expected at the charity's annual Operation Dreamkeeper event will be able to get a present, said Cloxton, the charity's executive director.

"I feel we're seeing the giving spirit in our community step up and make something that was wrong, right," he said.

The thieves that broke into Cloxton's barred-basement were especially despicable - they unwrapped the toys to take the ones that were the most valuable.

It is Good News that so many people are stepping up to help - Let us remember all the charities that do so much all year to help those less fortunate - see below.
