Campaign signs tell us nothing

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?

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:

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.

Dear Editor,

Gary Soiseth selflessly served his country

Dear Editor,

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 ...
