Nereyda Felix's New Year's wish for a baby girl was granted on Wednesday, as she gave birth to Turlock's first baby of 2014 at 3:43 a.m. Baby girl Felix came into the world weighing 7 pounds, 14 ounces and 19 and half inches long. She is Nereyda's fourth child, but first girl. As of mid-day Wednesday, she had not yet chosen a name for her new daughter. As the first baby of the year, Emanuel Medical Center gifted the new arrival with a basket full of blankets, bottles, teething rings and other goodies.

It's always hard to look back at an entire year and sum it up in a few hundred words. While Turlock remains a "small town" in the eyes of most of its long-time residents, the truth is the city is the second largest in the county and an important agricultural engine for the region and country. There is no way to succinctly summarize all of 2013 (without inducing a post-holiday lethargy), so instead I have poured over the year's headlines and found two reoccurring issues -economic development and water.
