Teachers continue to work towards excellence, despite obstacles

With the budget crisis, teacher lay-offs, low test scores, and struggling students and schools… we can still continue to find something positive! Turlock Unified School District's Instructional Coaches offered a voluntary staff development that was targeted to meet the instructional needs of teachers and learning needs of all students. The reception of teachers "choosing" to attend on their own time was amazing, especially now, when teachers are finishing benchmark testing, attending study trips with their classes, working on report cards and individual assessments, etc.

Christianson is a dedicated public servant

I am proud to be supporting Adam Christianson for Sheriff. Adam has taken the high road and insisted on everyone keeping positive. He deplores negative campaigning and I have never heard him bring up any negatives about his opponent.

AB 32 will help drive a sustainable economic recovery

Just a few years after passing AB 32, our state's challenge to reach a clean energy future, a handful of reactionaries in Sacramento (including Sen.

Carnegie vote success for council, arts community, city

Congratulations to the Turlock City Council for passing the construction of the Carnegie Arts Center by 5-0 vote Tuesday night. After over 10 years of squabbling and turf battles between the City and the arts community, this council set-up a subcommittee including: Mayor John Lazar and Council member Amy Bublak to develop a Carnegie concept that all members of the council could accept and support.

It’s a GREENgos silent spring

In the not so golden state anymore, if you stop and listen you'll notice it's quieter. You'll see more cars and trucks smoking and running on plastic factory spares. The once constant drone of traffic and commercial activity is giving way to a silence of the lambs.

Hughson councilmembers should avoid costs of recall and resign now

The story "Hughson city employees cry 'hostile work environment,'" which ran in the April 3 issue of the Journal, articulates well the employees' complaints which were investigated and found to be without merit and unfounded. The rest of the article voiced Hughson City Council members Thom Crowder and Ben Manley's views, which is fine if you like to hear half a story. The citizens of Hughson want any employee, manager or council member removed if they violate the law.

Ideological balance

Now that the Sarah Palin event is sold out, the California State University, Stanislaus Foundation should announce another event for two weeks before or after the Palin event with a guest speaker such as Howard Dean or Rachel Maddow. This would achieve ideological balance and raise even more funds for scholarships.
