Turlock's Pitman High School graduate and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick elicited a major media response when he was seen sitting down during the national anthem at preseason game. Kaepernick has since acknowledged his reasoning for the protest as being directed toward oppression experienced by people of color from police officers and others. The following coverage will contain some spoilers of the episode.
Turlock and the rest of the nation will always remember when America came together on September 11, 2001, as a terrorist attack struck the nation. Within hours, more than 2,600 people died at the World Trade Center, 125 died at the Pentagon, and 256 died on the four planes. The death toll surpassed that at Pearl Harbor in December 1941, according to the 911 Commission Report.
California State University, Stanislaus Warriors and Alum have reason to celebrate as they have found themselves on yet another high ranking list. U.S. News & World Report first placed Stanislaus State on its list of top public universities in the West region 21 years ago, and it’s now a streak that shows no sign of ending.
