A low-cost spay and neuter clinic is needed immediately in our town of Turlock. There are abandoned and feral cats everywhere, on the street, in the neighborhood, in parking lots of shopping areas and restaurants.
I am very impressed with Turlock's new bus hub located at Golden State Boulevard and Hawkeye.
An open letter to: Mayor (John) Lazar, Turlock City Councilmembers Amy Bublak, Bill DeHart, Jr., Forrest White and Mary Jackson; Turlock Parks and Recreation manager Allison Van Guilder and Eric Schultz; Turlock Journal editor and staff; business owners, citizens and friends and family of my nephew, Brandon Koch.
Coming soon to California schools near you: larger classes, fewer courses, and an end to sports and arts programs.
I want to thank the two young men who found my wallet in a cart at Walmart. They refused a reward but they can't know how much they restored my thoughts of the younger generation. Thanks again.
Ana and I attended the vigil at the Sikh temple in Turlock on Friday evening. It was a solemn ceremony, with the participation of most of the Turlock Sikh community and of the city's elected leadership.
To The Editor:
Please help me here. We are in the worst recession in years, and the city of Turlock has in last few years built a multi-million dollar fire station, police station, art center, and a transportation center.
Tea Party activists made history in recent years and our movement will continue to shape the nation's future. To fully promote our conservative principles, we at the True Tea Party wish to explain our endorsement in the presidential race.
I just experienced the worst 4th of July celebration in Turlock in years. The Turlock parade lasted just 27 minutes. I invited friends and relatives from out of town to see the parade and was so embarrassed when the last car said "that's it."
A better way to solve the problem of overcrowding (of livestock at the Stanislaus County Fair) would be to have the judging before the fair starts if necessary. Then allow each 4-H and FFA club to exhibit a predetermined number of animals including their sale animals.
In case you don't know yet, Stanislaus County Fair is NOT having a Christian artist come this year to do a concert at the fair as they have in the past few years. Certainly it can't be because the performances by Christian artists have been poorly attended. Actually it is the opposite. When the Christian artists have come, the Christian community packed the place out and many followed up by letting the fair people know how much it was appreciated and what a blessing it was to everyone.
My family and I met Gary Soiseth this last Saturday when he walked through my neighborhood in the rain. He spoke about his commitment to a positive campaign without negative attacks against his opponent. He spoke about moving Turlock in an even stronger direction. And he spoke about bringing new energy and new ideas to City Hall. All of which I agree with.
Proposition 47 is the one proposition on the ballot for which the Roman Catholic Bishops of California have taken a position of support. "The California Safe Neighborhoods Act" is a step forward in reforming the broken criminal justice system in our state. It will provide educational support and treat mental illness to make our communities safer while addressing sentencing discrepancies in constructive ways.
I have known the Brem family since they first moved to Turlock more than 22 years ago and am happy to wholeheartedly support Mike for 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 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 ...
Bill DeHart has brought common sense and cooperative leadership to the Turlock City Council. He is committed to long term solutions regarding drinking and waste water needs of the public and industry, the condition of neighborhood and community roadways, and appropriate staffing of our public safety departments - all within the framework of fiscal responsibility and sustainable growth.
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.
