Districts are the way to go for TUSD

Later this month the Turlock Unified School District Board of Trustees will decide on a trustee district map which will forever change the makeup of the board. Whichever map they choose, it will undoubtedly lead to a more diverse board of trustees.

For-profit ‘charter’ schools

Former tennis star Andre Agassi deserves enormous credit for recognizing that nothing is more important than ensuring every child gets the kind of quality education that is their best chance for success in a rapidly changing world. I know, there are high school dropouts who make it to the top. But all the ones I know were blessed with gifts that enabled them to do what the other 99 percent of high school dropouts don't.

Save the fireworks

I love the Fourth of July. As holidays go, it is pretty laid back. You spend the day barbecuing with family and friends, hopefully next to a lake or a pool, and celebrate being an American.

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.

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.
