Time to pass on the love of boating

When I was a kid I used to look at a car's speedometer believing that the highest number on the speedometer represented how fast that car could go. Like most kids, I wanted to have the fastest car and boat someday.

Soiseth: Historic vote places Turlock on path toward reliable drinking water

Last July, while campaigning for mayor I went door-to-door to share my vision for a stronger, bolder Turlock. As I listened to residents talk about concerns of unreliable drinking water during consecutive years of a drought, it was clear we needed an alternate source of water. Turlock couldn't continue to exclusively pump groundwater without limitation.

Shame on you Mr. President

Considering the events of the past week, I find it appalling that the president did not call for flags to be flown half staff for the four Marines who were killed in Chattanooga. I also find it shameful that we allow our elected officials to display this kind of behavior.

Internet age not all bad

Nearly 10 years ago, when I first started writing this column, I wrote about a new product that was being advertised throughout the fishing community. I questioned whether or not it was just another gimmick. To my surprise, I was contacted several days later, not by a representative of the company, but the owner himself. I learned since then just how fast information can travel across the internet.
