Elvis is in the building

Over the past week, I've had a lot of fun watching the reaction on people's faces when I tell them the Journal just went up a day in print publication. Many people react as if I told them Elvis Presley is alive and well and will be performing at the Turlock Community Theatre next week. While the extreme surprise is a little offensive, I also understand.

Voters tend to 'go cheap' when it comes to election time

"You get what you pay for." Often that's a truism that reflects the reality that if you buy cheap, you end up with cheap. Unfortunately, it's also often a truism for voters as well. Analyze a candidate and where he stands and you weed out the politicians who will do the least amount of damage. Recoil from that duty - of studying a candidate or the issues - and you're apt to get someone you will regret putting into office.

GOP lemmings — in their suicide vests

When you write a column, you hear from people who think they have a clever magic-wand solution to intractable political issues. Washington has run up $17 trillion of debt? Pass term limits. Throw the bums out. Take away their pensions.

New day, new look, same commitment to community

I'd like to apologize to those of you who stepped out of your homes this morning, saw a Turlock Journal on your doorstep, thought it must be Saturday and went back to bed instead of work.

Biotechnology is friend of humanity, not foe

"It feels like home again" is probably the most accurate statement to describe the sensation of being back in Turlock after a month long departure. From July 7 to Aug. 3, I was experiencing a four-week residential program called COSMOS, the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science.

Doing what I love for my community

In my younger years, I dreamed of one day being a writer. I would write short stories, typically filled with things only the childhood imagination could conceive, and relentlessly make my two older brothers listen to every last detail (when you're the youngest and the only girl, you can get away with that sort of thing).

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 ...
