Mayor Soiseth's public workshop on Turlock roads reconfirmed what Turlock residents already know – the condition of Turlock roads is deplorable and there is no definitive plan to provide a dedicated source of funding to halt the deterioration of Turlock's transportation infrastructure. Last November, a majority of Turlock voters supported a sales tax that would have provided 100% of the funds raised to fix only Turlock roads, but it fell just short of the two-thirds voter approval needed.

Not so when the "product" is a hip replacement or an MRI. Generally, what the procedure costs is largely irrelevant. And doctors will make the decision about where the surgery will take place.

Heat built over the southern portion of the State as high pressure anchored over the area. Weak Santa Ana wind events drove highs into the lower 90s across the Los Angeles basin on multiple days last week. Elsewhere, the State felt the effects of the high, but these were much less pronounced. Temperatures varied considerably in a real sense, but almost none in the temporal sense, as locations saw essentially the same weather every day. Highs in the valley reached the 60s and 70s each day, while the coasts north of San Francisco and the mountains saw 50s. The desert ...

Once again, the trees are blossoming, which means that the big fish are going to start biting. As always, it comes down to the right water temperature and the correct moon phase. This next full moon on March 5, combined with rising water temperatures, is surely going to move a large wave of fish up shallow to spawn. The only thing that could interrupt those fish from moving up shallow would be a drastic drop in water temperature as a result of a series of cold days. With our current weather conditions, I don't see that coming. So, start ...

The continuing drought, State law requiring Groundwater Sustainability Agencies and Plans due by 2020 /2022 (GSAs and GSPs), and recent studies by the U.S. Geological Survey designating the Central Valley as the fastest sinking water level in the country necessitate swift action by our leaders.

The League of Women Voters of California supports policies that ...
