Ending Winter Term makes sense financially and academically

As the State Legislature's funding support for public higher education rapidly declines, the California State University system has been faced with unprecedented budget cuts that have had a major impact on all 23 CSU campuses.

Students would not be served best by inter-session

In reference to your recent article concerning the abolition of Winter Term at CSU Stanislaus, as chair of the faculty committee that investigated the President's proposal that Winter Term be eliminated I would like to offer the following points for your readers' information.

Bernard right fit for TUSD

I am writing this letter to show my support for Turlock Unified School District Board candidate Josh Bernard. Over the years working with Josh I have witnessed characteristics that I feel are ideally suited for a TUSD Board trustee. Characteristics such as honesty, patience, and dependability are only a few of the traits I see Josh demonstrate on a regular basis.

Weaver best choice for school board

I am writing this letter in support of Bob Weaver, candidate for the Turlock Unified School District. I have known Bob for the past fifteen years and have found him to be a bright, hard -working, community- oriented, individual. He has three sons in school so it is of the utmost importance to Bob to see that they receive the best education possible.

LaVelle, incumbents proven leaders

Timm LaVelle and the two other incumbent board members of the Turlock Unified School District have clearly demonstrated why they should be re-elected. Mr. LaVelle has consistently treated those who have appeared before the board with the courtesy and respect they deserve. Under his stewardship, the TUSD board has met the recent budget crisis and other challenges with thoughtful resolve and a reassuring unity characteristic of highly functioning organizations. Under Mr. LaVelle's leadership, the board has also skillfully managed the transition between superintendents without the drama evident with the Modesto City Schools Board and the Turlock City Council.

Bob Weaver for TUSD

As a parents of a child in the Turlock Unified school system, we strongly advocate everyone to vote for Bob Weaver for the Turlock school board. Bob brings excellent leadership experience, most recently as the president of the Julien School PTA. Also, Bob has volunteered for years as a Cub Scout leader and progressed the organization as a leader. Bob is truly dedicated to helping children develop character and improve their self-esteem, thus instilling happy childhood foundations for great future leaders of our humanity.

Josh Bernard has the skills needed to lead Turlock schools

A good public education system is one of our country's great strengths. Unfortunately, I do not believe today's public education is as good as it once was or as good as it should be. There are many reasons for this and many are beyond local control. However, a reason some districts excel over other districts is undoubtedly the leadership, dedication and knowledge of their school boards.

Bovine bologna

The recommendations in last week's H1N1 article are irresponsible, inaccurate and dangerous. According to the Physician's Desk Reference, the nasal influenza vaccine is associated with an increased risk of "Medically Attended Events," seen as asthma/reactive airway disease, in children under the age of 5 years.

Health care refinancing is not health care reform

America's preoccupation with reforming health care is misguided and futile. Social medicine by any name or statute is designed to make medical care more available to more people.

The need for health care reform

Don't let anyone try to convince you that universal health care won't work in America. Most developed countries have better health care systems than we have.

Measure B is right for Turlock

As a longtime resident of Turlock, I have witnessed the increasing deterioration of Turlock roads. The limited funds from state and federal sources only provide funding for temporary repairs on a very limited basis and are mostly directed at specific projects such as the recent pavement improvements to Monte Vista Avenue and Canal Drive. The citizens of Turlock deserve better and passage of Measure B will be the first step to ensure that Turlock roads are fixed.

Rushed groundwater measures hurt Valley economy, communities

We represent the San Joaquin Valley, one of the most productive farming regions in the country. Agriculture is a major reason why California is now the world's eighth largest economy. But the Legislature recently passed legislation that puts our ag economy and local jobs at risk.
