Speaking truth to power at Modesto Junior College

On Sept. 17, Army veteran Robert Van Tuinen decided to celebrate U.S. Constitution Day by handing out copies of the Constitution at Modesto Junior College, where he is a student. If he were at the University of California, Berkeley or another politically correct campus, some liberal students probably would have picked an argument with him and maybe even would have accused him of hate speech.

Enough with the tantrums; local officials need to focus on bringing more jobs to county

Snide under-the-breath comments, eye rolling, whining and ultimatums – no, this is not the behavior of a 5-year-old throwing a temper tantrum, this is the behavior of your local elected officials.

Responsible management of our federal budget

Many of us are familiar with managing a budget, for our families or for ourselves. We track our spending and expenses, staying within our means when possible, and keeping a line of credit to help us manage unexpected costs. We set aside money to save for our children's college education, we buy a car with manageable payments that we can make and we don't commit to buying things we know we can't afford. When we find ourselves spending outside of our means, we don't assume our employer will raise our salaries; instead, we stop our spending.

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.

We’re holding ACE in drive for Valley employment

The real game changer for the economically challenged in the San Joaquin Valley won't by California High Speed Rail. It'll be well-run traditional rail modeled after the Altamont Corridor Express service.
