2012 wasn't that bad

Every December, we at the Journal do a year in review story. Hopefully, you read the 2012 review in Saturday's paper; if not, you can find it online at www.turlockjournal.com. This is always a daunting task as it is more than just a review of the year's top stories; it is also finding the reoccurring themes during the last 12 months.

USDA’s accomplishments in 2012

Over the course of 2012, farm families and rural communities faced a number of challenges.

However, thanks to the resilience of rural Americans, our communities are still going strong.

Dodging the cold and flu bullet is not without a price

There's a scene from "Back to the Future III" - shot in the Red Hills area near Jamestown - where Doc Brown is lamenting his sorrows in a saloon over his lost love, Clara. In an unguarded state of mind for lack of sleep, Doc admits to a crusty trio of cowboys from 1885 about being from the future. When one skeptical bar patrons asks Brown what people do for fun in the future, Brown confidently replies: "We run." Laughter bursts out at the table as actor Pat Buttram chortles, "Run for fun? What the hell kind of fun is that?"

Time to bring real reform to VA

Getting in the room to see the doctor is the hardest part. That is what I hear most often from the tens of thousands of Central Valley veterans. Long wait times for appointments and lengthy commutes prevent them from accessing the care that they have earned through their service. In Turlock, a veteran looking for specialty care faces a 90 mile journey to the nearest full service Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Palo Alto. This trip is especially difficult for elderly veterans or those with limited financial resources.
