70. Derron Lee - August 26, 2013

What are you reading?

Susan and Matt discuss what they've been reading. Since the two co-hosts originally met at a literacy fundraiser, the subject of what each is reading tends to come up a lot. Susan is currently reading Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald and Matt is enjoying on Sugar, Fat, Salt as well as the Peter Criss autobiography.

Both are big fans of our wonderful Stockton-San Joaquin County Public Library. Did you know you can search the library catalog online and even reserve a book and have it pulled and ready for you at your local branch? Also, did you know that you can check-out e-books and audio books from the library, too. Go to ssjcpl.org for all the information.

Derron Lee

We interviewed local optometrist and entrepeneur, Dr. Derron Lee. Derron and his wife, Dr. Leanne Lee, were high-school sweethearts long before they went to college and became optometrists. Their practices, Midtown Optometry in Stockton and Manteca Optometry in Manteca, strive to bring the best in eye-care and customer service to their patients. 

As a Stockton native, Derron strives to be "loyal to the soil" as can be seen in his charity work. Derron started a "White Goldrush" campaign to collect donations of new socks and undergarments for St. Mary's Dining Hall. He also  started the Comeback Scholarship program to offer scholarships to local area high school students that pledge to return to the area once they've finished college. 

To help fund his charitible ventures, Derron has joined Ambit Energy, a retail electricity and natural gas provider. For more information on this venture, visit energysource.biz.
