Elvis is in the building

Over the past week, I've had a lot of fun watching the reaction on people's faces when I tell them the Journal just went up a day in print publication. Many people react as if I told them Elvis Presley is alive and well and will be performing at the Turlock Community Theatre next week. While the extreme surprise is a little offensive, I also understand.

Voters tend to 'go cheap' when it comes to election time

"You get what you pay for." Often that's a truism that reflects the reality that if you buy cheap, you end up with cheap. Unfortunately, it's also often a truism for voters as well. Analyze a candidate and where he stands and you weed out the politicians who will do the least amount of damage. Recoil from that duty - of studying a candidate or the issues - and you're apt to get someone you will regret putting into office.

GOP lemmings — in their suicide vests

When you write a column, you hear from people who think they have a clever magic-wand solution to intractable political issues. Washington has run up $17 trillion of debt? Pass term limits. Throw the bums out. Take away their pensions.

New day, new look, same commitment to community

I'd like to apologize to those of you who stepped out of your homes this morning, saw a Turlock Journal on your doorstep, thought it must be Saturday and went back to bed instead of work.

Biotechnology is friend of humanity, not foe

"It feels like home again" is probably the most accurate statement to describe the sensation of being back in Turlock after a month long departure. From July 7 to Aug. 3, I was experiencing a four-week residential program called COSMOS, the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science.

Doing what I love for my community

In my younger years, I dreamed of one day being a writer. I would write short stories, typically filled with things only the childhood imagination could conceive, and relentlessly make my two older brothers listen to every last detail (when you're the youngest and the only girl, you can get away with that sort of thing).

Always remember Sept. 11, 2001

Today marks the 12th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, that fateful day when thousands of people were killed on American soil by a group of terrorist thugs whose Muslim extremist organization took credit for the attack. The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon represented a turning point in what terrorist organizations were willing to do to make their point. The killing of thousands of civilians was an act of unmasked cowardice. It was an attempt to bring the people of this great country to their knees in fear of the next attack. The terrorists acted not only ...

Giving thanks

Next week is Thanksgiving, my second favorite holiday after Christmas. It is a time when we reflect on the many blessings we enjoy. I have been here almost one year, and I have noticed many great qualities of our Stanislaus communities. I would like to express my thanks for those qualities, and what they have meant to me and my family.
