The need for health care reform

Don't let anyone try to convince you that universal health care won't work in America. Most developed countries have better health care systems than we have.

Federal lands need protection

Dear Turlock Journal,

September 25, 2009 | | Letters to the Editor


Where are the police when you need them?

I have never felt unsafe in Turlock, although I was not born here, I was raised here and have always thought it was one of the safest places to live. But that idea came to a stop on Sept. 22.

Decades of service to Livingston High thrown away

I am half Portuguese, part Norwegian and part Dutch. The sea is in my blood by heritage; football by birthright.

Why is trash still expensive in Turlock?

Turlock Scavenger Company gets (the) bid to take over waste management garbage routes in unincorporated areas. These unincorporated area residents get a lowed monthly rate. Can you believe it? Their rate (of) $20.92 (falls) to $18.65, that's a savings of $2.27.

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.

A lesson for all youth sports league board members

I am sorry for what the Ybarra family must be going through since Anna Ybarra was arrested for embezzlement from the Turlock Youth Soccer Association.

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.

Connecting the dots in Turlock politics

Dear Editor,

September 04, 2009 | | Letters to the Editor


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?

Measure B money will stay in Turlock

The citizens of Turlock will have the opportunity Nov. 4 to make a commitment to fixing Turlock roads by voting YES on Measure B. Turlock roads have suffered from years of neglect as a result of not having a dedicated funding source and it's time that we take control of maintaining our investment in Turlock's transportation infrastructure.

Measure B is right for Turlock

As a longtime resident of Turlock, I have witnessed the increasing deterioration of Turlock roads. The limited funds from state and federal sources only provide funding for temporary repairs on a very limited basis and are mostly directed at specific projects such as the recent pavement improvements to Monte Vista Avenue and Canal Drive. The citizens of Turlock deserve better and passage of Measure B will be the first step to ensure that Turlock roads are fixed.

Rushed groundwater measures hurt Valley economy, communities

We represent the San Joaquin Valley, one of the most productive farming regions in the country. Agriculture is a major reason why California is now the world's eighth largest economy. But the Legislature recently passed legislation that puts our ag economy and local jobs at risk.
