Protect housing for seniors and people with disabilities

After years of preparation, the opportunity to build Avena Bella, 80 apartments for working families and low income older adults in Turlock, could disappear with the stroke of a pen if the State Legislature approves Governor Brown's plan to eliminate redevelopment agencies.

Winter term decision made by university president

I appreciate the Journal's recent piece ("University students, faculty adjust…," March 5) on CSU-Stanislaus' recent shift to a conventional academic calendar and the replacement of its unique winter term with an evidently less attractive alternative.

Board, not dairies dropping the ball

Your coverage of Food & Water Watch's new report on groundwater contamination in the Central Valley missed the boat on a key finding: with some notable exceptions, dairies are complying with the requirement to submit data from their own wells, but Regional Water Quality Control Board staff are dropping the ball. The most recent data the board analyzed was submitted in 2008. What's happened in the last 2.5 years? Without annual analyses of the limited data this program collects, we won't figure out if water is being protected by current rules. Electronic data submission would make this ...

Someone needs to hold people accountable for their actions

Thank you for your latest article on this sad case (death of Patrick O'Connor update, which ran in the March 2 issue of the Journal). We are friends of the O'Connor family and some of us are involved with law enforcement.

Disappointed constituent

I am dismayed to see that our newly elected Congressman, Jeff Denham upon reaching Washington D.C. immediately organized an extravagant party. He raised $85,000 and spent $80,000 of it on this over the top celebration of himself. This seems way out of touch with the economic situation experienced by the people in his home district. Does he think people back home won't figure out what he is doing? He put out his hand to the lobbyists, took their money and had a party. One Indian group gave him $50,000 and another gave him $25,000 ...

Thank you teachers

University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) has trained over 250 teachers and afterschool leaders how to incorporate nutrition education into daily classroom activities and make it fun while also educational.

Acetaminophen linked to childhood obesity

Two separate stories published online in the "American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine" have reported at connection between asthma and acetaminophen use (the active ingredient in Tylenol).

The realities of market allocation in our society

Understanding the sources of our national divisions is certainly important, particularly in light of recent events in Tucson. But the analysis offered by economics professor Walter Williams ("Why we're a divided nation," Jan. 19) is too simplistic, naïve, and historically myopic to help us much.

A generous community

Dear Editor, In this season of giving thanks, I would like to share a public thank you to everyone who helped to make Emanuel Medical Center's Legacy Circle fund drive such a success. The commitment of our many community and employee volunteers, and the generosity of our hundreds of donors, was truly inspiring. Together, they raised $1,007,000 during the six week fund drive to advance cardiovascular services at Emanuel. And, the generous giving continues - totaling $1,030,000 to date.I am so thankful to live in a community filled with such civic-minded, giving individuals who are ...

What is happening to dedicated city employees?

The citizens of Turlock deserve some answers. Long-term employees of the City of Turlock just keep disappearing from their departments and jobs. There are no explanations, though often it seems that there are allegations made against them just before they are "unavailable for comment." What kind of 'back room deals' are being made by the City? Why is any of this happening? What kind of plans are being put in the works 'behind closed doors' without any opportunity for public input as to what we really care about and value?

Prescription pseudoephedrine policy

An op-ed article from the New York Times tilted "How to Kill the Meth Monster" written by a colleague of mine, Rob Bovett, district attorney in Lincoln County, Oregon, was recently released. Rob and I also serve as advisory board members for ONDCP's National Methamphetamine and Pharmaceutical Initiative (CMPI). We have been traveling around the country assisting states contemplating the implementation of policy that would return pseudoephedrine (PSE) to its prescription status that existed prior to 1976. Oregon has five years of remarkable data touting its success and now Mississippi has become the second state to pass such legislation ...

Advertising extreme

It's not very often that I agree with burdensome rules and regulations set up by government to stifle businesses. The "Business Balk" article printed in the Journal last week made me chuckle after I read statements from business owners suggesting they are hurting due to a local sign ordinance that has outlived its useful life. I agree with the City's sign ordinance simply because it is silly to see grown men and women dancing on street corners dressed in a Halloween costume, a dill pickle, or oil can in vain attempts to sell a sandwich. What should be ...

Our community would be fortunate to have Soiseth as Mayor

Gary Soiseth recently volunteered to spend a day speaking with high school students about his experiences in Afghanistan and his commitment to public service. After hearing him speak, I felt that any community would be fortunate to have him as a leader. He is intelligent, well-spoken, and most importantly, he is passionate. As a teacher, I value his desire to help the youth of tomorrow discover their potential, and I applaud his efforts to help them achieve their goals. Gary's ability to connect with the youth of today will help foster the generation of tomorrow.

Turlock leadership choices

Turlock is a community on the move, growing jobs, attracting new economic development and emerging as one of the best places to live and work in the Central Valley. At the core of this success is the recognition that confronting our community's challenges and capitalizing on new opportunities requires a team effort to mobilize our community's assets and the active cooperation of business, civic and political leaders around core objectives. This is why the leadership choices Turlock voters make in November are so important. This is why, after conducting extensive interviews with all the candidates, the Turlock Chamber ...

Gary Soiseth for Mayor of Turlock

Turlock has been blessed with many dedicated and talented elected leaders throughout the city's history. Turlock is recognized as a special place to live in large part because of the policies of the past that have shaped the present. To insure a bright and prosperous future Turlock must have a mayor with vision and the strength to make many difficult and informed decisions. On Nov. 4 Turlock voters will consider two very well qualified men seeking this important position.

Measure B will benefit Turlock citizens

I have attended every Turlock City Council meeting since April of this year. I was very impressed at the way the Council worked together to formulate Measure B. They have come up with a measure that will benefit every citizen in Turlock. Measure B money can only be used to repair existing roads in Turlock. The measure established a citizens' oversight committee to see that the funds go to fix Turlock roads.

Soiseth's overseas leadership experience needed in Turlock

Jan and I initially reached out to Gary Soiseth in his first years as a USDA Senior Agriculture Advisor embedded with the United States Army in Afghanistan. We followed his accomplishments throughout his service from 2009 to 2013, and we were thrilled to see that he chose to bring his skills and experience back to his home community.

Soiseth is ready to lead our community

As we come together to elect a new mayor, we are-in my opinion-at a crossroads. It seems that major issues have not been addressed and difficult decisions have been delayed; there really is no more time to waste. I certainly did not accomplish everything I hoped for in my time as mayor but I do know now that solving all of these issues will take an energetic, organized, and passionate leader who sees this job as a goal and not a hobby. I have been fortunate enough to work with both mayoral candidates throughout the years and while ...

Soiseth has clear vision for Turlock

Gary Soiseth's campaign for mayor of Turlock has sought to bring the most important issues facing Turlock to the forefront. He has focused on water reliability, deficit spending, and bringing transparency to issues at City Hall. His focus on the issues, rather than who else was running, singles him out as a focused, convicted, and visionary leader.
