Flag flap continues

This letter was given to the Turlock Journal on Tuesday in response to the article "Memo resurrects flag flap" published on March 19. The article explained that the Journal received an internal memorandum from an anonymous source. The memo was from Denair Unified School District Superintendent Edward Parraz to district staff and it recants the entire course of events that took place last Veteran's Day when Denair Middle School student Cody Alicea removed a United States flag from his bike.

Targeting of public employees won’t fix economy

Protect housing for seniors and people with disabilities

After years of preparation, the opportunity to build Avena Bella, 80 apartments for working families and low income older adults in Turlock, could disappear with the stroke of a pen if the State Legislature approves Governor Brown's plan to eliminate redevelopment agencies.

Winter term decision made by university president

I appreciate the Journal's recent piece ("University students, faculty adjust…," March 5) on CSU-Stanislaus' recent shift to a conventional academic calendar and the replacement of its unique winter term with an evidently less attractive alternative.

Board, not dairies dropping the ball

Your coverage of Food & Water Watch's new report on groundwater contamination in the Central Valley missed the boat on a key finding: with some notable exceptions, dairies are complying with the requirement to submit data from their own wells, but Regional Water Quality Control Board staff are dropping the ball. The most recent data the board analyzed was submitted in 2008. What's happened in the last 2.5 years? Without annual analyses of the limited data this program collects, we won't figure out if water is being protected by current rules. Electronic data submission would make this ...

Someone needs to hold people accountable for their actions

Thank you for your latest article on this sad case (death of Patrick O'Connor update, which ran in the March 2 issue of the Journal). We are friends of the O'Connor family and some of us are involved with law enforcement.

Disappointed constituent

I am dismayed to see that our newly elected Congressman, Jeff Denham upon reaching Washington D.C. immediately organized an extravagant party. He raised $85,000 and spent $80,000 of it on this over the top celebration of himself. This seems way out of touch with the economic situation experienced by the people in his home district. Does he think people back home won't figure out what he is doing? He put out his hand to the lobbyists, took their money and had a party. One Indian group gave him $50,000 and another gave him $25,000 ...

Two separate stories published online in the "American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine" have reported at connection between asthma and acetaminophen use (the active ingredient in Tylenol).

The realities of market allocation in our society

Understanding the sources of our national divisions is certainly important, particularly in light of recent events in Tucson. But the analysis offered by economics professor Walter Williams ("Why we're a divided nation," Jan. 19) is too simplistic, naïve, and historically myopic to help us much.

A generous community

Dear Editor, In this season of giving thanks, I would like to share a public thank you to everyone who helped to make Emanuel Medical Center's Legacy Circle fund drive such a success. The commitment of our many community and employee volunteers, and the generosity of our hundreds of donors, was truly inspiring. Together, they raised $1,007,000 during the six week fund drive to advance cardiovascular services at Emanuel. And, the generous giving continues - totaling $1,030,000 to date.I am so thankful to live in a community filled with such civic-minded, giving individuals who are ...

What is happening to dedicated city employees?

The citizens of Turlock deserve some answers. Long-term employees of the City of Turlock just keep disappearing from their departments and jobs. There are no explanations, though often it seems that there are allegations made against them just before they are "unavailable for comment." What kind of 'back room deals' are being made by the City? Why is any of this happening? What kind of plans are being put in the works 'behind closed doors' without any opportunity for public input as to what we really care about and value?

Turlock needs road repair investment today

County needs more progressive groundwater regulations

The time is now for action to protect adequate water for Stanislaus County's future. The continuing drought, State law requiring Groundwater Sustainability Agencies and Plans due by 2020 /2022 (GSAs and GSPs), and recent studies by the U.S. Geological Survey designating the Central Valley as the fastest sinking water level in the country necessitate swift action by our leaders. As 80 percent of the water used in California is directly used for agriculture and that industry is expanding in our county, the need for more water is growing. The League of Women Voters of California supports policies that ...

Council needs to develop plan to fix Turlock roads now

Mayor Soiseth's public workshop on Turlock roads reconfirmed what Turlock residents already know – the condition of Turlock roads is deplorable and there is no definitive plan to provide a dedicated source of funding to halt the deterioration of Turlock's transportation infrastructure. Last November, a majority of Turlock voters supported a sales tax that would have provided 100% of the funds raised to fix only Turlock roads, but it fell just short of the two-thirds voter approval needed.
