The first casualty is not partisanship

How do we react to the horrific murders of Christina Green, 9; John Roll, 63; Gabe Zimmerman, 30; Dorothy Morris, 76; Dorwin Stoddard, 76; and Phyllis Schneck, 79; and the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., and 13 others?

Finding hope in the jobless

Before my story interview with the Alliance Worknet about the services they offer for job seekers and local businesses, I had a picture in my mind of what the atmosphere at the Alliance office in Turlock would be like.

Time to get out the glue

The art of crafts is slowing dying. I realized this Thursday night at a service club meeting when our group discussed delivering Valentine's Day cards to residents of local nursing homes.

A snowy adventure

As a lifelong Central Valley resident, when the meteorologist mentions "inclement weather," my mind immediately turns to fog.

In the spotlight

More people across the nation than ever before have some idea where Turlock is located thanks to the national media attention our town and the surrounding area received in 2010.

Less is sometimes more

A tropical vacation is typically filled with snorkeling, jungle excursions and hours of laying on sandy beaches. And while my recent trip to the Caribbean Sea was filled with all of those things and much more, I couldn't help but bring back something extra - a more grateful and appreciative attitude.

In the spirit of Christmas I've decided to blatantly steal some seasonal inspiration from my favorite television shows.

Wishing you well

"Merry Christmas!" What an odd combination of words to get so much attention. First, I want to begin with a statement that this is not a rant on the Christmas season and how it is being taken out of our society. It is an observation of a complex world where offense is the first reaction and best intentions are misinterpreted.

The Democrats' new pork: Trains to nowhere

In the last decade, the symbol for profligate federal spending was the infamous "Bridge to Nowhere" - a huge proposed span that would link the town of Ketchikan, Alaska, population 7,500, to an airport on Gravina Island. Powerful Alaska Republican lawmakers tried to stick American taxpayers with a huge chunk of the tab for this dubious project.

The art of satire is alive and well

I have created a new award in honor of comedian Jon Stewart - the Swiftee. This coveted honor goes to the person who most personifies the king of satire, Jonathon Swift. Stewart and "The Daily Show" writers were channeling the renowned Anglo-Irish essayist when they shined a light during their Monday night Comedy Central program on the U.S. Senate Republicans and their hypocritical nonsupport of health aid to 9-11 first responders.

What a dame

I don't care what they said about her in "Game Change." Bitchy? Who wouldn't be? Difficult? She had a right to be.

Season of hope

No matter how commercial the Christmas season gets, there is one pure thing the holidays always bring - hope.
