Soiseth: Seeking a second term to complete a ‘bold vision’

Over the past two years and eight months, I've been honored to be the mayor of Turlock. We've continued to be a community that leads our region on many fronts and we've been a community with clear, bold goals: to improve our failing roadways, to find a solution for reliable drinking water, and to manage our finances with discipline. Together, we've accomplished these goals and, as your mayor, I'm asking for four more years to see these goals to the end.

The bird, the bunny and the wardrobe

A few minutes before 4:30 p.m., the contestants are lined up on fold-out tables topped with a soft fabric. They are all dressed in a variety of outfits and ready to be judged based on three criteria: cutest, most creative and best representation of the fair theme, Imagine the Fun. Most of the contestants sit patiently with their owners, but a few flounder on the table and one even tries to jump off and escape.
