State parks worth fighting for

Whenever I travel back to my hometown in Indiana, the first thing I notice as the airplane makes its decent into Indianapolis is the vast swath of green that seems to cover the entire state. You don't realize how few trees actually grow naturally in California's Central Valley until you see an aerial view of Midwest lushness.

The reality of sci-fi

Like many people around the world, I am a fan of science fiction. The genre asks the question "what if?" and then allows for an infinite number of answers. What if is fun to ponder, but a new scientific development - and the implications of its usage - have me wondering, should we?

The means to help producers impacted by drought

This week, we continued to see historic levels of drought grip much of our nation, impacting thousands of farm families. Although the hard work and innovation of our producers has fueled a strong farm economy in recent years, President Obama and I understand the major challenges this drought poses for American agriculture.

Entertainment at the fair a deal — but no seat saving

I love summer but the icing on the cake, for me, has always been looking forward to visiting the Stanislaus County Fair. Must-do things on my fair list are checking out the photography exhibits, looking at all the handiwork crafted by FFA and 4-H kids, seeing the farm animals – invariably there is always a big mama pig and her piglets – nesting in sawdust, viewing the putt-putt antique engines and checking out the floriculture and yard exhibits. Occasionally, I will ride rides at the mid-way. And I watch the people, seeing how they act and dress.

Exceptional fireworks event, almost

If you weren't at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds on the Fourth of July, you missed one heck of a show.

Get connected

At least once a month a well-meaning friend or acquaintance will take me aside and ask with a grim look on his or her face, "So, how's it going at the newspaper?" I assume my questioner is expecting a negative response and that's why he or she is talking to me like I just lost my favorite pet.

School districts need local authority; Pell Grants should be fully funded

I grew up here in Turlock as a product of local public schools. I attended Cunningham Elementary then Wakefield Junior High School before graduating from Turlock High School and going onto college. This is the community I know and love and I believe that today a lot of folks don't have the same opportunities I had growing up here.

Turlock's record of success

As we enter into the last weeks of this election season, I wanted to take a few moments to refocus the citizens of Turlock on the truth rather than some of the misperceptions and half-truths that have been put out in campaign materials and editorial comments.
