A 'real' letter from Santa — priceless

For more holiday seasons than I can remember, I've written about a most vivid memory confirming the Christmas season had arrived. It was the TV commercial showing Santa Claus riding down a snowy hill on a sled that was actually a Norelco electric razor. Yes it's patently commercial. But, as a kid, it stuck out and continued to do so for years afterward.

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.

Candidates vie for 'likes' and 'shares,' along with votes

I know that on Oct. 16 Turlock mayoral candidate Gary Soiseth was playing a ukulele with the Sunshine Strummers and mayoral candidate Mike Brem loves walking precincts and relaxing in the pool with his grandchildren. Did I learn this information from the Journal's dedicated election reporters who are spending every hour with the candidates on the campaign trail? I wish. Rather, I know these things because I read them on Facebook.

School districts need local authority; Pell Grants should be fully funded

I grew up here in Turlock as a product of local public schools. I attended Cunningham Elementary then Wakefield Junior High School before graduating from Turlock High School and going onto college. This is the community I know and love and I believe that today a lot of folks don't have the same opportunities I had growing up here.

On Oct. 10, two intruders entered Herschel "Bud" Moore's home. They beat up the 94-year-old veteran, ransacked his home and made off with around $2,500 in cash and other stolen items.

Turlock's record of success

California schools chief race is about tenure

At last month's California gubernatorial debate, Republican hopeful Neel Kashkari praised Gov. Jerry Brown and Attorney General Kamala Harris for using their discretion not to appeal a court ruling that overturned the state's same-sex marriage ban. Kashkari then chided both Democrats for failing to use that same discretion when they appealed the Vergara v. California court decision. The suit is named after Beatriz Vergara, one of nine students who sued to eliminate the state's teacher tenure system.
