Support Prop 24

On November 2nd, we have a chance to do what so many of us have been dreaming about. Follow the money, we've been told, well, that's what Proposition 24, the Tax Fairness Act is about. Though its opponents try to present it as a bad deal for small business and employees, in fact, it has nothing to do with small businesses. The loopholes this prop is attempting to repeal address only big business. This is an opportunity to get the top 2 percent to begin to pay their fair share. We're turning into cattle, going along with ...

Candidate clarifies platform

As a candidate for the Turlock City Council some of your readers may have gotten the impression that I am only interested in the homeless and transportation problems. On the contrary, I am convinced that the council must be adaptable to the hard times which we must face. I am interested in making it the most efficient and able to serve the greatest number of people for the greatest good.

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 ...

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 ...
