Those traveling on Golden State Boulevard near Fulkerth Road know that the Stanislaus County Fair is gearing up for its 2016 run because of the bright-colored messages that flash on the electronic billboard located on the southeast corner of the state-owned property.

Annual irrigation system maintenance helps prevent water loss

Although the recent rains have prevented the necessity for turning on the sprinklers, warmer weather is approaching and it is important to prepare irrigation systems accordingly. A poorly maintained irrigation system prevents water from reaching its intended source and instead is lost to runoff, evaporation and deep watering below the root zone. Maintaining your irrigation system is one of the most effective ways to reduce wasted water, reduce pollution from run-off and over-irrigation, and improve plant health by applying the correct amount of water where it can be utilized by the landscape.

After considering the fate of the downtown farmers market for close to 120 days, the Turlock City Council on Tuesday awarded the contract to a new operator: Peter Cipponeri and the Golden State Farmers Market Association.

His teenage daughter also occasionally bikes from home to school at Turlock High. While Garcia has seen improvements over the past few years in the bikeability of Turlock's roadways, there's always room for more.
