Families attending events at branches of the Stanislaus County Library in May can learn more about science, Angry Birds and My Little Pony. Along with these educational and fun activities, both the Turlock and Keyes libraries have Summer Reading Challenge events planned for the end of the month to get local families excited about reaching their literary goals.
Olde Tyme Pastries opened its doors on May 1, 1981, bringing with it a delicious selection of cakes, cookies, pies and other desserts that the Turlock community has grown to love over the last 35 years. Formerly located in the back corner of Geer Gardens, the bakery moved up to its current location 20 years ago and has never looked back.
One woman has been having ongoing issues with mold in the "expensive" townhouse she rents in Turlock and her landlord isn't fixing the problem she said, but rather spreading it throughout her home. Another man is having trouble getting back the $400 deposit he paid when he moved into an apartment 16 years ago, because the original landlord passed away and his next of kin doesn't want to pay it. Both of these landlord/tenant issues and more were brought up during a Housing Rights and Responsibility Forum hosted by Project Sentinel on Wednesday at Turlock City Hall.
As the recent rain has brought much-needed relief to local crops, it is also helping to paint a rosier economic picture for the Valley, according to the biannual Business Forecast Report produced by Gökçe Soydemir, the Foster Farms Endowed Professor of Business Economics at California State University, Stanislaus.
