Catholic community welcomes new Bishop
By SABRA STAFFORD On March 15, Myron Cotta was installed as the sixth Bishop of the Diocese of Stockton, which oversees the majority of the 209 area, but his connection with the region goes back to his childhood in Dos Palos. Bishop Cotta, 65, was born of Portuguese heritage in Dos Palos and grew up on a dairy farm. He attended public and Catholic schools in Dos Palos and graduated from Dos Palos High School.
