Do we really honor our veterans?

I was standing around at the dedication of a new veterans' memorial the other day, in city hall and not too far from the "wall" the city hall installed a couple years ago - the wall being a bulletin board where you can post pictures of your boy or girl overseas.

One man’s opinion

Is there an elephant in the room? Are the teachers in Denair victims of poor District leadership or victims of poor representation by union leadership (Denair Unified Teachers Association (DUTA), under the direction of Barry Cole and CTA Regional Representative Steve Miller? I believe that DUTA leadership, in their October 30, 2013 flier distributed to parents in school parking lots, present ample evidence of their failure of leadership, "Over the past many years, while its student population dropped, the District failed to reduce staff and other expenses in line with that student loss." Where were Mr. Cole and Mr. Miller ...

How the Affordable Care Act improves the lives of American women

On Thursday, we join our White House colleagues in celebrating National Breast Cancer Awareness month; and almost four weeks into the launch of the Health Insurance Marketplace, I'm reminded of the tremendous impact the Affordable Care Act has on the lives of American women.

Red light cameras deserve to go by the wayside

Just because man can develop a technology doesn't necessarily mean that it should be employed. That may be said red light cameras which are bothersome to those who feel it lays the groundwork for an Orwellian society.

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.

Why I can’t support Turlock’s Measure B, yet

"He is anti-roads." "He is anti-tax." "He is too Republican." All are false claims that will be waged against my campaign for mayor of Turlock because of my current criticism of Measure B, a proposed half-cent sales tax for the next seven years to fund Turlock road improvements.
