Dam busters

In the last 12 years, over 400 hydroelectric dams and their associated reservoirs have been dismantled in the United States of America. While China is building dams all over the place, the United States is tearing them down. Why?

Support your local auto dealers

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. Yes, we have all heard of how the U.S. auto industry has been in trouble recently, but this is not of your local dealers making. Let's all find it in our hearts to keep our auto ...

The Turlock City Council is sleepwalking

Is the Turlock City Council living in a dream world? Their actions seem to indicate they are for the following reasons:

We need help on the Westside

In response to the letter to the editor about Westside discrimination which ran in the July 8 issue of the Journal, I agree 100 percent with the writer.

Education, not construction should be CSUS’s top priority

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?

Don’t wait to show your love

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.

We need more positive Latina role models

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.

Small claims not big enough

Have you ever noticed that when people say they hate attorneys, that it's usually their own attorney that they hate? The costs of hiring an attorney are often more than the cases are worth, even if you win!

West side discrimination

The hit and run homicide, which occurred on Jan. 31, of my son Kelly R. Story has still not been solved. The shooting of my grandson in 2007 and the robbery of my parents in 2008 also remain unsolved.

Soiseth is wrong on Measure B

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.

Brem much more qualified to be our mayor

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 ...

Measure B money will stay in Turlock

The citizens of Turlock will have the opportunity Nov. 4 to make a commitment to fixing Turlock roads by voting YES on Measure B. Turlock roads have suffered from years of neglect as a result of not having a dedicated funding source and it's time that we take control of maintaining our investment in Turlock's transportation infrastructure.

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.
