A vote for Abe Rojas is the right direction

I support Abe Rojas for reelection. Abe is a committed individual who supports his community. I remember Abe and Sharon Rojas organizing and being present at the Rhythm Beaters events so the youth could have a venue to go to. Abe established the Kaleidoscope, brought live bands, made the City of Turlock Recreation Department what it was meant to be. Abe did not stop there. He was involved in officiating sporting events, was an announcer at sporting events and was involved in planning and developing Pedretti Park. During this period, Abe was involved with his children's events; today he ...

Another option for YCCD: Kevin Sabo

Bickering between Abe Rojas, Bill Holly, and their supporters is a tragic reflection of how most Americans feel about this election. The theme of choosing between the most unpopular candidates for president is being played out right here in the Valley in this race for college board.

Nascimento is focused on building business-friendly community

As a small business owner in Turlock, I am proud to support Steven Nascimento for Turlock City Council. Steven understands the important role quality of life issues play in attracting small business investment in our community, and he has personally reached out to me on multiple occasions to make sure our small business needs were being met in Turlock.

Measures N and O will address TUSD needs

The Turlock Unified School District recently hired more than sixty positions while other districts in our county are having trouble finding teachers. We have excellent teachers and innovative programs that, unfortunately, have waiting lists. Our high schools feature unique educational opportunities that prepare our students for a vocation right out of high school as well as prepare our students to compete well at major universities.

Who is Amy Bublak?

I first met Amy Bublak in 1987 when I joined the Turlock community as California State University's Provost and Academic Vice President. At that time Amy was the Student Body President. I found Amy to be then and to this day a straight shooter who tries to do the right thing to solve a problem rather than just the expedient one.

The sins of the father & politics in California

It's the $68.4 billion question: Why would an otherwise fiscally conservative governor like Jerry Brown go full speed ahead with a $68.4 billion plan to build a high speed rail system with only $9.95 billion in hand and a lot of studies that point to a more realistic price tag of $100 billion?

Eggman for Congress

Michael Eggman is not a career politician or so steeped in his party's politics that he cannot reach out to the other side to find common ground on the issues that are vital to all of us, including insuring that a federal budget is adopted in a timely manner. He is a hardworking farmer who works up and down the valley, shares our values, understands our challenges, and was raised in Turlock. He has my endorsement and vote.

Bublak gets things done for Turlock

I am the Real Estate Developer who built Monte Vista Crossings, the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and the Marriott Fairfield Inn and Suites in Turlock. Monte Vista Crossings enjoys a reputation as one of the top five open air shopping centers in the Western United States. It is by far the single largest individually owned generator of tax revenue for the City of Turlock. I imagine many people now take for granted this mega-generator of jobs and provider of quality goods and services for the residents of Turlock. This hasn't always been the case. There were times in years ...

Raymond George Fernandes

With heavy hearts we said goodbye to our beloved Husband, Dad, Grandpa and "Boo Boo", Raymond George Fernandes. He gave selflessly of himself for God, his family, friends, community, his country and total strangers. He never asked for anything in return. He never had an unkind word and was always very interested to know you and keep you as a friend.
