Why you should vote “no” on Prop 19

On Nov. 2, voters have an important decision to make on whether to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Backers would have you believe that legalization would do everything from shutting down cartels to reducing the prison population.

Bring manufacturing back to California

Stanislaus County is a wonderful part of California, growing an abundance of food. The processing of this food was done in local canneries and provided jobs for people of all talents and ages. Due to higher costs, these companies have moved to Mexico and other countries.

City devalues life guards

The City of Turlock should be ashamed. Not only did they change a written employee contract, but they have devalued the importance of life guards. In order to qualify as a life guard, one must be a strong swimmer and certified - at a cost of about $250 plus a lot of class time, annually. Not just anyone qualifies. Their responsibilities include water safety and swim lessons. This is not the same as someone working for Burger King or as a sales clerk. My son, a former life guard, once had to save a man from the strong currents of Honolulu ...

Milk talk: Another fair season comes to an end

Dear friends, we have survived another fair. We finished the Stanislaus Fair on July 25 and on July 28, we went to the State Fair. The State Fair finished Aug. 1. Two weeks in a row of fair is very tiring but extremely rewarding. The California Milk Advisory Board did it again. They made sure that there was plenty of milk in the barn to drink. We thank them.The talk at the fair this year was the killing of the cow. At the State Fair, there was a misunderstanding between a Springer cow and the security guards. This happened ...

The easy life of crime

I just need to know WHY? We all know Turlock has a large number of car thefts. Why is that? I ask this because we had three cars stolen one day and a trailer we had been using that belonged to a friend a different day from my son's house. He caught people robbing his house - two different times.My husband found the trailer being used by several men; it was parked on the streets of Turlock with a different license plate. My husband called the police and confronted the men. When the police officer came she read the ...

Time to put ethics back into city council

The recall movement is alive and well in Hughson. After successfully obtaining the necessary signatures to be able to place the recall on a ballot, I can say that we are on our way in our campaign efforts to put some ethics and order back into our City Council.I am so proud of the six candidates who have stepped forward to replace the three that the Civil Grand Jury found in violation of political ethics laws. These six - two each running for the three positions - are candidates who have no ties to each other, and are of strong ethical ...

The law needs to better protect abused women

This is a question that I always wanted the police to answer: Why does the law in our time and age let battered women's incidents get as far as a death?You would think they would know by now this is something you would have to take care of right away, as far as someone not abiding by the law. Abusers like Anthony Simmons - who was stabbed to death allegedly by girlfriend Selina Vargas in February 2009 - ignored and broke every law that got in his way and the police just turned and looked the other way. They have ...

Integrity needed on Hughson council

Hughson faces a recall election on Aug. 24 because three of its City Council members have refused to follow the recommendations of the Stanislaus Civil Grand Jury and resign from office.The grand jury concluded that they broke several laws, that their conduct was unacceptable, and their continued presence did not serve the best interests of Hughson.Seven months have passed and they haven't budged from office. They've made some expensive mistakes and their presence continues to fuel chaos and bad feelings. It is notable that they tried unsuccessfully to appoint a personal friend as the new city ...

The absence of reason

Say, what!?!?!! Should Turlock say "Yea" or "Nay" to those council members who just voted to deny the right of their fellow members to abstain from a vote? I suppose it depends on how one views decision making. Let's look at decision making at a personal level. In every election, I am faced with choices between minor candidates whose character I have no way of knowing. Likewise, I have to decide to vote on initiatives, like the one on the housing of chickens, on which I will never have the expertise to be able to make a responsible decision ...
