The recent arrest of Anna Ybarra for embezzlement is the very sad result of another supposed adult selfishly tarnishing an organization developed for the enjoyment of children.
The forthcoming election has brought out many large and very bright signs for the candidates. Wouldn't it be nice if Turlock had an ordinance prohibiting the placement of signs before Oct. 1? While the signs make a point, they do not provide information on who the candidates are, their education, background, or their knowledge of the Ed-code of California. What about their positions on those issues not controlled by County and State Educational Codes and policies? And most important , what is the extent of their knowledge of educational finances?

Every person in Turlock and the surrounding communities, really does need to understand how lucky we are to have such honest and reputable auto dealers here. Your local dealerships are all family-owned and employ many of your friends and neighbors; and it has been my experience that these employees are some of the nicest, kindest and most professional people in our community.

California State University, Stanislaus administration has expressed deep concern for the state of the California State budget. Why then, have they dismantled a perfectly good sign at the Monte Vista and Del's Lane entrance? Are they preparing the area for a different sign at the entrance to match those on Crowell Road and Geer Road? What about the sculpture that has been removed from the Del's Lane entrance?
Recently we, and the Turlock community, lost two of the nicest, most giving people we had ever met. This couple donated many hours of service here and died within weeks of each other. Shirley and Roger will be warmly remembered by everyone who knew them.
The nomination by our President Obama for Judge Sotomayor made me very proud as a Latina who, like Sotomayor, believed in the power of education.
I was disappointed to learn of Gary Soiseth's opposition to Measure B - the proposed half-cent sales tax dedicated to fixing Turlock roads. However, my disappointment quickly turned to frustration as I read Soiseth's rational for opposing Measure B.
Gary Soiseth is a really nice young man, but he has very little experience or involvement with the City of Turlock and only recently became a resident. Mike Brem has been a resident for over 20 years, he is a proven business leader - as the CEO of a very successful local business with over 100 employees, he has served in leadership roles with the Chamber of Commerce, is a longtime member and past president of Turlock Rotary, and has been a member of the city's planning commission for many years. Mike is very familiar with Turlock's unique needs ...
