David Blagg stacked inner tubes in direct sunlight in the 90-degree heat on Friday afternoon in anticipation of people wanting to float on the Mokelumne River this weekend.

The Clements Bait, Tackle, Deli and Thrift Store, tucked into a 1,100-square-foot building on Highway 88, took a hit this year when the San Joaquin Sheriff's Department closed public access points to the Mokelumne River on July 12.
