Bus routes important to all

Recently some of us who are dissatisfied with the local bus system went to Mr. (Roger) Fall, who manages the bus routes, and asked him to change the routes. He did not make a definite commitment, but he called two meetings on Sept. 23 at which time residents may air their grievances.

The Christian majority should be heard

As I picked up the Turlock Journal Wednesday morning, the first thing that caught my eye was an article entitled "In God We Trust?" With great interest I opened up the newspaper and read the article and my heart sank.

We need to remember

Thank you so much for bringing the sad fact that there are no Sept. 11 remembrance events held in town to the attention of the citizens of Turlock. For years I have been asking why the schools have done nothing on the anniversary of 9-11 every year. For the first couple of years I even tried calling my sons' school (Pitman) and told them how disappointed I was and asked them to please consider changing their "same as any other day" attitude.

The tragedy of drunk driving

As long as I've been a police officer, I've never gotten used to the sorrow I feel when I'm called to the scene of a crash where a young person has died due to impaired driving. Yet, this senseless loss of human life is a daily reality all over America - year after year.

What goes around comes around

The recent arrest of Anna Ybarra for embezzlement is the very sad result of another supposed adult selfishly tarnishing an organization developed for the enjoyment of children.

Campaign signs tell us nothing

The forthcoming election has brought out many large and very bright signs for the candidates. Wouldn't it be nice if Turlock had an ordinance prohibiting the placement of signs before Oct. 1? While the signs make a point, they do not provide information on who the candidates are, their education, background, or their knowledge of the Ed-code of California. What about their positions on those issues not controlled by County and State Educational Codes and policies? And most important , what is the extent of their knowledge of educational finances?

Dam busters

In the last 12 years, over 400 hydroelectric dams and their associated reservoirs have been dismantled in the United States of America. While China is building dams all over the place, the United States is tearing them down. Why?

Support your local auto dealers

Every person in Turlock and the surrounding communities, really does need to understand how lucky we are to have such honest and reputable auto dealers here. Your local dealerships are all family-owned and employ many of your friends and neighbors; and it has been my experience that these employees are some of the nicest, kindest and most professional people in our community. Yes, we have all heard of how the U.S. auto industry has been in trouble recently, but this is not of your local dealers making. Let's all find it in our hearts to keep our auto ...
