Dear Editor,

August 29, 2014 | | Letters to the Editor


Time to take control of maintaining Turlock's roads

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.

Continuing the fight

Every year on this day I do a lot of self-reflecting. Why you may ask? Because 14 years ago on Aug. 1 I lost my mother to breast cancer, and not a day goes by without the hope that I have turned out to be someone she would be proud of.

Our shared real-life story

When friends and I watched "Years of Living Dangerously" - the TV series about climate change - we had different reactions. And some serious conversations resulted.

Cluster mail boxes problem for senior village

Our door-to-door mail delivery was just canceled and they put in one of those 'cluster box units' - well, actually three of them in the same location. We have no option. Not even putting in a curbside mail box. No notice. No instructions to open package boxes. This is a senior village and about half of us can't walk far enough to go to the mail box and get our medication through the much cheaper delivery by mail - $10 versus $20 to $40 plus a 15 mile trip to the nearest accepted pharmacy.

THS Relay team comes together to raise $15k for annual event

I am writing this morning because I am so very proud of the Relay for Life Club students at Turlock High School. This is the 10th year that THS has had a student team participate in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life event. Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society's signature fundraising event and the largest non-for-profit fundraiser in the world.

Pushing back against pop culture's toxic messages

I really appreciated Dennis Wyatt's Feb. 22 column, "'Malling' of America's community standards". It brought to mind something that I have given much thought to in recent years, namely the profound disparity that exists between the cultural values of big business and the cultural values of many socially conservative communities around the country.

Assemblymember Olsen should work on milk prices, not ethanol

In response to Assemblymemeber Kristin Olsen's opinion about ethanol: You are a state assembly member, but you want to get involved in the federal scheme designed to make our country less dependent upon foreign oil. You complain about the federal process because of your parochial interest in dairymen. These are crocodile tears! As a state legislator, you are in control of the state mandated milk prices. Exercise your time on behalf of the California citizens in pursuit of those subjects you have been given control over by the California citizens. Raise the California controlled milk prices so that a ...

Road tax maybe the answer

This macabre joke regarding the roadways in Turlock has not just sprung up overnight. The expected repair on Monte Vista in front of the University is long overdue and should have been continued down to Berkeley. These are avenues of egress to the city from the freeway. Anyone entering our fair city would almost have kidney problems upon arriving. I was born at the old Emanuel Hospital and am fully aware that in order to get something done in the public sector there needs to be funds. If the tax problem was presented in a slightly different form so that ...

Fire Department urges common sense for Fourth

The Turlock Fire Department wants our citizens and community to have a happy and safe July 4th Holiday. We want to remind our citizens that only fireworks with the State of California Fire Marshal approval are legal to use in the City of Turlock. Fireworks that fly into the air or explode are considered illegal and are highly dangerous. The last few years, both the Fire and Police Departments have confiscated a number of illegal fireworks from our citizens. The trend of using illegal fireworks these past few years is definitely on the rise. We want to let our citizens ...
