The print version of the CV Drum News is "a fresh African-American news antidote to San Francisco, San Jose and Oakland." My 5 & Eight Mile Road is an interactive blog that complements the print publication and also focuses on the voices of residents and issues in the great Central Valley areas of Stockton, Sacramento, Elk Grove, Davis, the Mother Lode, Tracy, Modesto, Merced and the North Valley.
The name "My 5 & Eight Mile Road" comes from the fact that California Interstate-5 runs throughout California -- from the southern border to the northern border -- including through the Central Valley. And Eight Mile Road is the northern most busy exit in Stockton, the home base of the CV Drum News. We also welcome guest op-eds. The floor is open!
