It is absurd how we elect the President of the United States.
I have been a resident of Turlock for the last seven years. I am a mom of two elementary school age kids, the current president of the MOMS Club of Turlock SW, Delhi and Hilmar, a Girl Scout Troop leader and a classroom volunteer.
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?

My primary responsibilities include weekly on-site management of the market, vendor recruitment and support, maintaining market compliance, arranging entertainment and community activities for the market, and answering inquiries from potential vendors, customers, community members and the media.
A big run in the second quarter turned the momentum in favor of the Warriors as the Stanislaus State women's basketball team defeated San Francisco State, 60-47, Saturday night at Fitzpatrick Arena.
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.
