A good example

A couple of weeks ago, I was going to an appointment and went down Mitchell Road. There was a group of men working with a police officer cleaning the side of the road. I assumed they were inmates or men that were working off time.

Make sure veterans have all the benefits they deserve

The Veterans Caucus of the California Democratic Party thanks President Barack Obama for honoring his pledge to bring home all of our troops from Iraq by the end of 2012. We encourage the President to bring the war in Afghanistan – the longest in America's history – to a rapid and responsible close as well. It's time once again to turn veterans' swords into ploughshares and attend to the growing inequities here at home.

Life in America for an Assyrian

I was born in Iran and now my family and I live in Turlock. Life between America and Iran is very different.

Shame on the City of Turlock

The city came out a couple of years ago while my parents were out of town for a few weeks, tore out their nice driveway, poured a new one that is cheap and has a place where the water sits. They also removed nice brass automatic lawn waters, replaced them with plastic, and didn't even get them all reconnected.

Coming to America

My wife and I had many serious discussions when we considered emigrating to the USA from Iran. We would leave behind family, friends and my position as a millwright. We would have to learn about a different culture and acquire a new language.

A special delivery

One year ago this Saturday, Oct. 22, my husband and I welcomed our fourth child, Sydney Grace Garcia. As wonderful and amazing as all of our children's' births were, this was no ordinary birth.

Since when does a month contain 36 days?

A few years ago when I heard that the city was installing water meters on all the homes in town, I knew that it was going to have nothing to do with water conservation, and everything to do with getting money out of our pockets.

A caring community in a moment of crisis

I want to thank all the wonderful people of Turlock who helped my family last Thursday (Aug. 25) afternoon; it is really comforting to live in a city where people care for each other.

Libraries important resource for adults, children

I am writing you in support of the Hilmar Library and all that it has to offer to the community. It is important to stop the reduction of hours and possible future closure of the Hilmar Library.

Vote β€˜yes’ for libraries

It is very disheartening to read the Turlock Journal article, "Save our library," that ran on July 13. The news item announced that because of budget cuts further reductions were necessary in the Hilmar and Merced County area. The Hilmar library would be open only 20 hours a week, down from 32 hours a week last fall.

Fireworks should be seen, not heard

I enjoy fireworks as much as anyone else. However, fireworks should be "visual!" What I am against is the purchase of fireworks with the "big bang" noise that sounds like a military assault.

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.

I Support Mike Brem for Mayor

Our family contracted with Supherb Farms to grow basil for several years. One finds when in business there are always challenges to face in an ever-changing environment and growing basil was no exception. The one constant I found through my experience with Supherb Farms was my high regard for the folks of whom I had the opportunity to meet. Each one projected competence, helpfulness, problem-solving ability, work ethic, confidence and quiet humility. When I look back on those days and the great people of Supherb Farms, I see now that they were a reflection of their leader and CEO, Mike ...
