Letter to myself

For the last two years it has been my privilege to photograph Turlock's high school seniors as they walk across the graduation stage. I have seen the tears, smiles, laughter and victory they experience as they receive their diplomas, all through the lens of my camera.

Ignoring the homeless doesn’t make them go away

On my daily drive to work I pass by Central Park - otherwise known as Homeless Park. Every single day there are at least six, and usually more than 10, people lying around the park. These people are obviously homeless, as they have blankets, duffels bags and shopping carts full of stuff surrounding them.

What’s inside Big Oil’s head?

The big five of Big Oil might want to mull over a bit of advice that baseball great Ted Williams once offered to rookies: "If you don't think too good, don't think too much."

Too much of a good thing

Three weeks ago there was a wonderful fundraiser for the Turlock Animal Shelter held at Sunnyview Dog Park. Dozens of dog owners came to support the shelter by participating in a 5K dog walk. After the walk, many people stayed to visit the pet-centered vendor booths - and play in the off-leash area of the park.

A Republican fighting for education funding? It’s true

This past week, the state Capitol was flooded with teachers from all over the state who are concerned about the future of public education in California. They're worried because California's persistent budget crisis has led to boom-bust budgeting for schools, which rely in large part on state funds to keep teachers in the classroom. And the recent economic downturn means more and more teachers are receiving pink slips come March 15.

Glad to be reporting north of the border

Being a journalist isn't easy. Despite the popularity of social networking sites and the proliferation of blogging every detail of one's daily life, most people still don't like talking to the press. And getting information from public officials is oftentimes daunting.

The essence of education

With the world metamorphosing, it's no surprise that young children need to be implanted with the seeds of concept, consciousness, and charm needed for tomorrow.

The other big news about Osama

The big news is not that Osama bin Laden is dead. I mean, that is certainly big news, but a guy in hiding who has a record price tag on his head is not exactly an effective leader of a revolutionary movement. The big news, at least by my lights, is that Americans waving flags seem to be the biggest demonstrations going on.

Hope for a new beginning

Nearly a decade ago, America launched a "War on terror." It's almost hard to remember Sept. 16, 2001, when then-President George W. Bush uttered that fateful phrase for the very first time.

Now it’s our turn

You probably have a favorite tree-lined street in your community. Or a tree-filled neighborhood you've always admired. Or a favorite forest where you like to bask in the beauty of the trees.

Amazing Grace

While listening to the haunting bagpipes of "Amazing Grace" during an April 9 memorial service honoring Pfc. Jeremy Faulkner in Jonesboro, Ga., I realized I had no idea what the 1779 song's famous lyrics, written by John Newton, actually meant. Faulkner's pastor, family, friends and fellow soldiers, who filled the huge church to capacity, helped clarify the beloved hymn's resonance.

Days of disappointment

It's that time of year again, the time of year when high school seniors who have done everything right their whole lives discover that it wasn't good enough to get them into the colleges they dreamed of attending. Ditto for college seniors applying to graduate school.
