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.

Polling place paranoia

Serious question: Is California part of the same country as Maine, Illinois, New Hampshire, Nebraska, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin?

Jeff Denham supports our cities, so we support him

Every two years our region sends a representative to the U.S. House of Representatives to voice our unique needs and concerns within the federal government. Washington, D.C. is almost 3,000 miles away from Stanislaus County and, as our Congressman, Jeff Denham could've easily insulated himself in this far away location, but he hasn't. He flies home almost every weekend to work with local leaders to better serve our communities and our residents.
