Guilt isn't always a bad thing

I'm not usually one to prattle on about the supposed deterioration of society. It's my belief that only those over 40 exhort the "good old days" and they do so in an effort to avoid any change. I don't know if it's because I turned 40 last month, or that society has actually started its downward fall, in either case, I'm going to give my first "good old days" tirade.

Giving so much more than thanks

Thanksgiving is a uniquely American invention, and I think it must be one of our finest. The celebrations, the food, the parades and pronouncements give us an annual reminder of all that we are so thankful for – and also a reminder to share our blessings.

Food trucks are not a passing fad

When I was growing up, food trucks (excluding the ice-cream man, of course) were only seen at construction sites, county fairs and in TV shows and movies based in New York City. Today, they are a staple of the culinary scene for most cities - and are spreading to smaller communities just like ours.

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 ...

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.
