Wonderful. Just fucking wonderful.

-- Modesto has named a veteran officer from Southern California as its next police chief.
The city announced Friday that Galen Carroll, a commander with the Long Beach Police Department, will start Jan. 8 as chief. His salary is $175,000. City Manager Greg Nyhoff will introduce Carroll at Tuesday's City Council meeting.
Carroll, 42, will replace Capt. Gene Balentine, who has served as interim chief since August, when Chief Mike Harden retired. Balentine, who was not a candidate for the job, will return to running the department's investigative services division. MORE

Modesto is the town just north of here, separated from my town by the Tuolumne River.
