Joe Debely renovations benefit entire community

The Turlock High School Joe Debely Stadium renovation appears to have brought a lot of negativity to the school, the City Council, and those who support the renovation. The Turlock Unified School Board is always concerned about its neighbors and their needs. They pride themselves in maintaining good relationships with our community and have repeatedly voiced their willingness to address any and all issues with regard to the stadium improvements.

Family is grateful for support of community

On Oct. 27, 2009 at approximately 3:30 a.m., our home and our belongings were lost in a fire. First and foremost we would like to thank our Heavenly Father for waking our mom (Shana) up that morning and giving us the chance to live! We, the Jones family, would like to express how thankful we are to each and every person who helped us pick up the pieces to our lives and put them back together. There is truly no amount of thanks that will ever compensate for what you all have done for us. The clothing, food ...

EDITOR’S NOTE

In a letter to the editor titled "Council members need lesson in civility" that ran in the Feb. 13 issue of the Journal, Dale Parkinson wrote: "Councilmember Kurt Spycher casually said that (City of Turlock Economic Development Manager Heidi McNally-Dial's) position on the city staff would be eliminated and then Councilmember Ted Howze agreed."

Spycher and Howze were out of line

I couldn't agree more with Dale Parkinson's comments in his letter to the editor published in the Feb. 13 Turlock Journal.

Sportsmanship lacking at TC basketball game

I have been involved in high school athletics for many years; I have played in them and I have cheered from the sidelines. After the Turlock Christian/Denair game that I just attended, I have almost lost all faith in the sportsmanship that used to be held at such a high standard at all high school athletic contests.

Obama is on the right track

I believe that President Barack Obama is on the right track with focusing on job creation. I think helping small businesses with giving small banks the incentive to give loans and the tax credits to businesses who hire new workers or give them raises is a step in the right direction.

What are our schools coming to?

My grandson was shot with an Air Soft gun by two other students in his grade after school at Brown Elementary. He was not injured. He asked to please not shoot his little sister.

Local jails cannot bear burden of housing state prison inmates

California's budget crisis has impacted every level of government: State, county, and city. Painful cuts have been and will continue to be made in all areas. Inevitably up and down the state, counties and local governments are looking at another year of reduced budgets and additional cuts to the point that many police chiefs and sheriffs are being forced to lay off police officers and deputy sheriffs.

Health is a priority

What is more important, public health care or public education? If you are a healthy child with caring parents, you could walk to the library and self-educate yourself. For example, Abraham Lincoln.

Turlock leadership choices

Turlock is a community on the move, growing jobs, attracting new economic development and emerging as one of the best places to live and work in the Central Valley. At the core of this success is the recognition that confronting our community's challenges and capitalizing on new opportunities requires a team effort to mobilize our community's assets and the active cooperation of business, civic and political leaders around core objectives. This is why the leadership choices Turlock voters make in November are so important. This is why, after conducting extensive interviews with all the candidates, the Turlock Chamber ...

Gary Soiseth for Mayor of Turlock

Turlock has been blessed with many dedicated and talented elected leaders throughout the city's history. Turlock is recognized as a special place to live in large part because of the policies of the past that have shaped the present. To insure a bright and prosperous future Turlock must have a mayor with vision and the strength to make many difficult and informed decisions. On Nov. 4 Turlock voters will consider two very well qualified men seeking this important position.

Measure B will benefit Turlock citizens

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.

Soiseth's overseas leadership experience needed in Turlock

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.

Soiseth is ready to lead our 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 ...

Soiseth has clear vision for Turlock

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.
