Keep our Turlock Certified Farmers Market

I am still in disbelief that the Turlock City Council is considering changing the Turlock Certified Farmers Market from a non-profit with local vendors to a farmers market for-profit with vendors outside of the area. If the market changes, that surely will mean the prices will rise, the quality of the fruits and vegetables will not be as fresh and local businesses will not have a local farmers' market to sell their produce. Shouldn't the City Council support the local businesses and let the people enjoy the benefits of our TCFM?

Snowy destinations abound in Yosemite winter

As we gazed over Tuolumne Meadows and countless snowy pinnacles, we saw not a soul and scarcely a sign that people had ever been there. It was hard to believe we were in one of the world's most popular parks, visited by millions every year. Two friends and I carefully hiked the final steps over rock and ice to reach a patch of bare granite on the 9,450-foot summit of Lembert Dome. An amazing view from the peak rewarded our effort.
