Farmworkers’ son active in UC Davis research wins prestigious NIH scholarship

Farmworkers’ son active in UC Davis research wins prestigious NIH scholarship

A biochemistry and molecular biology major, Abraham Corrales has been awarded the NIH Undergraduate Scholarship for students from disadvantaged backgrounds and committed to careers in health-related research.

The stinging sweat and all-over aches from picking blackberries one summer tutored young Abraham Corrales of Watsonville in the harsh realities he’d already experienced as the youngest of 10 children of migrant farmworkers.

“When you’re in the fields, you understand how everyone who’s working there really suffers just to put food on the table,” he said. “That’s what made me change my perspective on education.”

Today, the UC Davis junior has distinguished himself as one of only 16 recipients nationwide of a prestigious National Institutes of Health scholarship on his way to developing therapies to promote the health of agricultural communities like his own... Read More

Napa residents deal with earthquake's aftermath


The American Red Cross has provided disaster relief services to hundreds of quake victims, including those displaced from their homes.

Robert Lewis Tyler has been at the evacuation shelter at Cross Walk Community Church after the house he was staying at was severely damaged.

The Victorian mansion built in 1885 was one of the homes red tagged. The foundation shifted 18 inches, making the home unsafe to live in. There are fears that the historic structure can collapse at any moment.

"I was so glad, I'm alive," said Robert Lewis Tyler, one of the home's tenants. "But after a couple days, reality starts to hit in. Now I have to find another place to live."

While the cleanup process gets underway, work in the Napa vineyards must go on.

The Most Important School Supply of All

The Most Important School Supply of All

September is Library Card Sign-Up month – a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all.  To encourage the youngest residents of Yolo County to become life-long learners and library users, the Yolo County Library has partnered with First 5 Yolo to offer free “keeper” books to all children, ages 0 to 5, who either use their existing library card or sign up for one during the month of September.
