Startup in a Day with SBA

Small businesses are the engines of the U.S. economy. They create two out of every three net new jobs and employ more than half of the country's private-sector workforce. When we make it easier for new businesses to get started, we are ultimately making it easier for them to grow and hire.

Soiseth: Committed to bold financial leadership

This last Tuesday, four out of five council members voted in favor of my recommendations within a two-year budget. Based off a "line-by-line" analysis of our City's funds, this budget's central goal is to address the need to pay down our City's debt, to pay lump sum charges when it is to the City's economic advantage, and to slowly restore the departments that made the largest concessions during the economic downturn.

Almonds are water misers compared to marijuana

Almonds - we are told by those who want further cutbacks on agricultural water deliveries so urban lawns can stay lush and so they can hose out their garbage cans and hose down their driveways on a weekly basis - are water guzzlers.

Soiseth: Historic vote places Turlock on path toward reliable drinking water

Last July, while campaigning for mayor I went door-to-door to share my vision for a stronger, bolder Turlock. As I listened to residents talk about concerns of unreliable drinking water during consecutive years of a drought, it was clear we needed an alternate source of water. Turlock couldn't continue to exclusively pump groundwater without limitation.

Goodbye Turlock: Government reporter reflects on time at the Journal

Today is the last day that I will pick up a copy of the Turlock Journal and get that fluttery feeling when I see my byline. Nearly two years at the paper and that feeling has yet to wane.

It is bittersweet to be leaving.
