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 ...

The bright possibilities for Turlock

Dear Editor,

I love America, but not Palin

My congratulations to Journal reporter Alex Cantatore on a fine article on Sara Palin's visit. It achieved its goal of raising badly needed revenue. I did find Mr. Rob Veneman's comments very interesting. I am in my 70s and have loved this country and found it exceptional most likely longer than Mr.Veneman. I cannot be counted, however, as a lover of Sara Palin. Mr. Venemen's standard of "those who love America, love Palin" is tough to meet. Should I ever achieve it, please inform Mr. Veneman, he will be the first to know

Stop unions' bid to control the Turlock City Council

It seems Turlock Firefighters Union has infected the Turlock Police Officers Union with their political disease: "Power Grab Syndrome" (PGS) to control the Turlock City Council.

Adam Gray has made the valley a better place

Over my career I have spent a great deal of time trying to make the San Joaquin Valley a better place for our families and communities. In that time I learned that we do best if we work and stand together when valley interests are at stake. They are at risk in next week's election.

Gary Soiseth is a breath of fresh air

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.

Roman Catholic Bishops support Proposition 47

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.

Mike Brem is committed to Turlock

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.
