Jeff Rivero, a Yosemite High School teacher, earned a national education award from the Environmental Protection Agency for his after-school program that connects students with nature and teaches environmental lessons.
Madera police are looking for the people who fired more than a dozen rounds at an officer as he tried to pull over their vehicle early Sunday morning. The officer was unhurt, but a civilian who was doing a ride-along received minor cuts from glass from the patrol car’s windshield. Police found the vehicle, a Mazda SUV, a few blocks from where the officer last saw the vehicle. An AR15-style pistol was found nearby.
