Dorothy E. Sorrell, of Turlock, passed away peacefully at her home after a long and valiant battle with cancer. The youngest child of James and Mary Hornbeck, Dorothy was raised on the family ranch in Stevinson, attending schools there and in Hilmar where she was very active in sports and band. She continued to cherish friendships from her school days.
While Turlock actively prepared for what was originally forecast to be the storm of a decade this past weekend, the city came out relatively drier than other regions throughout California which were dealt blizzard warnings and flooding, leaving many residents without power or forced to evacuate.
Under the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, the State of California is scheduled to start issuing commercial licenses to sell marijuana by Jan. 1, 2018, however, a cannabis shop will not be opening up in Turlock anytime soon.
Here we are starting a brand new year in a brand new position. I will to officially say thank you to the Turlock voters of the newly formed District 2. According to the official election results, 3,876 of you stepped up and voted in this election; that is over 66 percent of our District saying "YES" we are here and we choose to be represented.
Congressman Jeff Denham has long been an advocate of programs that support veterans and he is continuing this tradition with the addition of a Turlock veteran on his staff through the Wounded Warrior Program.
