I am writing this letter to show my support for Turlock Unified School District Board candidate Josh Bernard. Over the years working with Josh I have witnessed characteristics that I feel are ideally suited for a TUSD Board trustee. Characteristics such as honesty, patience, and dependability are only a few of the traits I see Josh demonstrate on a regular basis.
I am writing this letter in support of Bob Weaver, candidate for the Turlock Unified School District. I have known Bob for the past fifteen years and have found him to be a bright, hard -working, community- oriented, individual. He has three sons in school so it is of the utmost importance to Bob to see that they receive the best education possible.
Timm LaVelle and the two other incumbent board members of the Turlock Unified School District have clearly demonstrated why they should be re-elected. Mr. LaVelle has consistently treated those who have appeared before the board with the courtesy and respect they deserve. Under his stewardship, the TUSD board has met the recent budget crisis and other challenges with thoughtful resolve and a reassuring unity characteristic of highly functioning organizations. Under Mr. LaVelle's leadership, the board has also skillfully managed the transition between superintendents without the drama evident with the Modesto City Schools Board and the Turlock City Council.

In keeping with a newspaper's commitment to accuracy, I want to point out errors and oversights in articles published in many newspapers across the country, regarding the Federal Governments recent guidelines on "medical marijuana" users.

Incumbents for School Board
As a parents of a child in the Turlock Unified school system, we strongly advocate everyone to vote for Bob Weaver for the Turlock school board. Bob brings excellent leadership experience, most recently as the president of the Julien School PTA. Also, Bob has volunteered for years as a Cub Scout leader and progressed the organization as a leader. Bob is truly dedicated to helping children develop character and improve their self-esteem, thus instilling happy childhood foundations for great future leaders of our humanity.
A good public education system is one of our country's great strengths. Unfortunately, I do not believe today's public education is as good as it once was or as good as it should be. There are many reasons for this and many are beyond local control. However, a reason some districts excel over other districts is undoubtedly the leadership, dedication and knowledge of their school boards.
The recommendations in last week's H1N1 article are irresponsible, inaccurate and dangerous. According to the Physician's Desk Reference, the nasal influenza vaccine is associated with an increased risk of "Medically Attended Events," seen as asthma/reactive airway disease, in children under the age of 5 years.
America's preoccupation with reforming health care is misguided and futile. Social medicine by any name or statute is designed to make medical care more available to more people.
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.
Dear Turlock Journal,
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.
I have attended every Turlock City Council meeting since April of this year. I was very impressed at the way the Council worked together to formulate Measure B. They have come up with a measure that will benefit every citizen in Turlock. Measure B money can only be used to repair existing roads in Turlock. The measure established a citizens' oversight committee to see that the funds go to fix Turlock roads.
Jan and I initially reached out to Gary Soiseth in his first years as a USDA Senior Agriculture Advisor embedded with the United States Army in Afghanistan. We followed his accomplishments throughout his service from 2009 to 2013, and we were thrilled to see that he chose to bring his skills and experience back to his home community.
As we come together to elect a new mayor, we are-in my opinion-at a crossroads. It seems that major issues have not been addressed and difficult decisions have been delayed; there really is no more time to waste. I certainly did not accomplish everything I hoped for in my time as mayor but I do know now that solving all of these issues will take an energetic, organized, and passionate leader who sees this job as a goal and not a hobby. I have been fortunate enough to work with both mayoral candidates throughout the years and while ...
Gary Soiseth's campaign for mayor of Turlock has sought to bring the most important issues facing Turlock to the forefront. He has focused on water reliability, deficit spending, and bringing transparency to issues at City Hall. His focus on the issues, rather than who else was running, singles him out as a focused, convicted, and visionary leader.
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has the political power to help raise huge campaign dollars for congressional candidates like Michael Eggman in hopes of once again becoming Speaker.
Our family contracted with Supherb Farms to grow basil for several years. One finds when in business there are always challenges to face in an ever-changing environment and growing basil was no exception. The one constant I found through my experience with Supherb Farms was my high regard for the folks of whom I had the opportunity to meet. Each one projected competence, helpfulness, problem-solving ability, work ethic, confidence and quiet humility. When I look back on those days and the great people of Supherb Farms, I see now that they were a reflection of their leader and CEO, Mike ...
