Dawgs Blog would like to welcome my newest sponsor and supporter of my site.

As you see above his name is Douglas Maner and he is an attorney with 35 years’ experience which included 22 years in the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office.

He has taken over 100 jury trials to verdict, most of which were serious felonies, including 11 homicides, 10 attempted homicides, 16 gang crimes, 17 robberies and nine sex crimes. He is also experienced in juvenile law, domestic violence, sex crime defense as well as drug and theft cases.

As a senior deputy district attorney for over 20 years he has thorough knowledge of the inner workings of the District Attorney’s Office. That experience gives him insight and what it takes to take their cases apart.

The cases he takes run the full gamut from people accused of the above listed crimes down to simple misdemeanors, or DUI’s.

He also has experience in veteran’s treatment court representation, he is death penalty qualified and is currently on the special circumstances/death penalty panel of attorneys are appointed to the most serious murder cases by the Stanislaus County Superior Court, and has been the primary attorney in six death penalty cases to date.


Obviously more than qualified to help you out, but on a personal note I got to sit down and talk to Mr. Maner and I was impressed with the confidence that he exudes, and you can tell there’s a bulldog attitude behind that to get things done. And his insight to the District Attorney’s Office could be very valuable.

If you need help he is someone I think is more than qualified and who could help you take care of your situation.




I was contacted today by a woman by the name of Donna Creekmore – Lyon. Her son 41 yr old James Anthony Andrade has been missing for about 45 days.

The best information that she has that he took a trip to the grass Valley area to do some gold panning with a friend, the friend apparently returned home without James. They have not seen or heard from James since then, and she thinks that the friend has disappeared, or the least they have not been to locate him.

A report has been filed with the Nevada County Sheriff’s Department, and in addition to Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department also.

He has been missing for some time but they reports were just recently filed.

Anyone with any information in regard to this young man’s disappearance. Please contact:

Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department @ (209)–552-2468,

Nevada County Sheriff’s Department @ (530) 265-1471

Or crime stoppers

Or if there’s any information that anyone wants to relate through Dawgs Blog I can relay that information to the family.

Record cold grips the South



Thousands of schoolchildren and teachers got the day off. Many cities canceled meetings and court proceedings, and some businesses closed. Slippery runways and the need to de-ice planes forced cancellations and delays in New Orleans; Memphis, Tennessee; and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. Electricity usage surged to record highs as people struggled to keep warm.

In Alabama, where some places got at least 3 inches of snow, dairy farmer Will Gilmer bundled up for the drive to his milking barn before daybreak in rural Lamar County, the thermometer reading 7 degrees (minus 14 Celsius).

“I probably had four layers on and then insulated coveralls and a heavy coat on over that. I made it OK except for my toes,” he said.

The mercury dropped to record lows overnight in several places in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi. It was 21 degrees (minus 6 Celsius) before dawn in New Orleans, breaking the city’s record of 23 (minus 5 Celsius), set on the same date in 1977.

At least four people died in Louisiana, including a man who was knocked off an elevated portion of Interstate 10 in New Orleans when a pickup spun out of control on ice, and an 8-month-old baby who was in a car that slid into a canal in suburban New Orleans. The baby’s mother was reported in critical condition.

Two others died along an icy stretch of I-75 southeast of Atlanta when a driver lost control and hit them, one of them inside a stopped car and the other standing beside it, authorities said.

One person died in a weather-related traffic accident in West Virginia. In the freezing Houston area, a homeless man was found dead behind a trash bin, apparently of exposure, while an 82-year-old woman with dementia succumbed to the cold after walking away from her home.

Also, a woman was discovered dead in a snowy park near City Hall in Memphis. The temperature was around 10 degrees when she was found.

Along the Gulf Coast, ice pellets covered the tops of sago palm trees, and stretches of I-10 were closed in Louisiana and across Alabama’s Mobile Bay.

Downtown Atlanta — the corporate capital of the South, notorious for its heavy traffic — was eerily quiet. Dozens of accidents were reported across the metropolitan area, one involving a salt truck. Some motorists drove through red lights rather than stop and risk sliding.

“This is kind of my scene,” said Sarah Snider, a zookeeper at the Atlanta zoo who recently moved from Vermont and marveled at how little snow it took to shut down the city.

Southern states and cities don’t have the large fleets of snowplows, salting trucks and other snow-removal equipment common in the North.

“Y’all aren’t going to make it!” a driver in a pickup truck yelled at two drivers in compact cars that were spinning their wheels on an icy boulevard near SunTrust Park, where the Atlanta Braves play. “You’re going to slide back down the hill! Turn around!”

Outside Five Points Station, the center of Atlanta’s commuter rail system, a man fell on the sidewalk and appeared unresponsive. An ambulance arrived quickly.

Adrian Benton, a 26-year-old native of snowy Buffalo, New York, tried to help.

“The up-north way of dealing with snow needs to come down here,” Burton said. Atlanta needed “snowplows, salt already going down last night so people can get around.”

But Susan Luciano, walking in her snow-blanketed Peachtree City, Georgia, neighborhood, was delighted: “It is the most romantic setting. It is beautiful. This is God’s masterpiece. It’s refreshing, it’s rejuvenating, it’s like a postcard. It’s like our neighborhood is a living postcard.”

Snow fell in a wide band that stretched from southeastern Texas all the way to western Massachusetts. As much as 4 inches fell from North Carolina into Virginia, and in Maryland, the weather service warned of wind chills as low as minus 10 (23 below zero Celsius).
