Supreme Court shows its value in gay rights decisions

Like a starting pistol, the buzzer sounded at 10 a.m. and nine robed justices entered the chamber. Chief Justice John Roberts immediately called on his colleagues to announce the court's decisions. Several hundred people listened in silence with bated breath.

The universality of love

The idea of universality - the concept that something, whatever it may be, can apply to anyone, at one time or another, regardless of who they are, what they believe and what they stand for - is awe-inspiring.

Market conditions warrant milk price adjustment

Today [June 24], I have ordered modest temporary price relief for milk producers, effective July 1 through the end of the year. This adjustment is across all classes to maximize pool returns to producers. While the testimony on the hearing record failed to provide economic data to justify the industry's positions, the uncertainty of the 2013 corn crop and questions about the stability of the market recovery indicate this adjustment is appropriate. I've taken this action despite the fact that I believe, and have stated, the Department cannot address ongoing difficulties within the dairy industry through increases in ...

Take time to reminisce this Father's Day

The Turlock Journal is focusing on "memories of dad" for this Father's Day edition, and it has prompted quite a few paternal flashbacks for me. My father passed away from a sudden heart attack in March 2000, but he lives on in my memory.

Farmers' Market: Delicious memory boost

It's safe to say that virtually anyone nowadays wouldn't mind gaining an edge in sharpening memory skills. Besides the obvious usefulness of a keen memory in remembering where you placed the car keys or trying to recall your day's busy agenda, years worth of knowledge and experiences captured in your own personalized storybook is always comforting to draw back on.

Don't ban dreams

Imagine being a 5 year old. Now, imagine that you are a 5 year old who loves soccer. You live for soccer. You eat, breath, drink, everything and anything that has to do with soccer. Before going to bed you can hear the roars of 100,000 fans cheering you on at the World Cup because you just scored the winning goal in the last 4 seconds of the game. You wake up early every morning to watch your favorite team fly across the field and play this glorious game that you adore. You spend hours practicing the curve in ...

A whole new world

I am guilty. Lock me up. Take my sideways photographs and ship me off to Siberia. Okay, maybe not Siberia. I couldn't handle the cold. But jokes aside, I truly am guilty of what I consider a horrendous crime. No, it's not something you'll read in next week's crime report. It is however, pretty saddening to say the least.

We need more models like the Patterson Logistics Training Center

A good friend of mine, Phil Alfano, Superintendent of Patterson Schools, has created an exceptional collaborative model between education, business, economic development and government to prepare young people for jobs in the growing logistics industry in Patterson. This past week a group of educators and businesspeople traveled with Phil to Southern California to check out the Norco Logistics Center, a similar collaborative in Riverside County. On the way back to Stanislaus County, Alfano spoke to a group in Kern County to share his experiences building the coalition in Patterson. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Phil is working directly ...
