Trust and confidence

Recently, law enforcement in our county has experienced a number of instances where law enforcement officers have made poor choices, violating their oath of office and the values and principles we pride ourselves on as a profession. Some have made mistakes that compromise their personal integrity and perhaps, your trust. While these cases are tragic within their own right, they do not represent the vast majority of dedicated public servants who serve with distinction and decency every day.

Despite recent reports, Denair very patriotic

The Denair First Amendment issue does not want to go away. The good that came out of the incident, the reaffirmation by the district that students have a civil right to fly a flag at school was tainted by a recent district memo which seemed to deny responsibility for the situation.

Prop 2 means cage free

I read with despair that California egg farmers are joining a lawsuit against the State of California and the Humane Society of the United States over Proposition 2. Contrary to what the Journal article and the plaintiffs suggest, as a Californian who spent many hours volunteering to collect signatures for Proposition 2, I know that voters supported a ban on confining birds in cages.

Flag flap continues

This letter was given to the Turlock Journal on Tuesday in response to the article "Memo resurrects flag flap" published on March 19. The article explained that the Journal received an internal memorandum from an anonymous source. The memo was from Denair Unified School District Superintendent Edward Parraz to district staff and it recants the entire course of events that took place last Veteran's Day when Denair Middle School student Cody Alicea removed a United States flag from his bike.

Protect housing for seniors and people with disabilities

After years of preparation, the opportunity to build Avena Bella, 80 apartments for working families and low income older adults in Turlock, could disappear with the stroke of a pen if the State Legislature approves Governor Brown's plan to eliminate redevelopment agencies.

Winter term decision made by university president

I appreciate the Journal's recent piece ("University students, faculty adjust…," March 5) on CSU-Stanislaus' recent shift to a conventional academic calendar and the replacement of its unique winter term with an evidently less attractive alternative.

Board, not dairies dropping the ball

Your coverage of Food & Water Watch's new report on groundwater contamination in the Central Valley missed the boat on a key finding: with some notable exceptions, dairies are complying with the requirement to submit data from their own wells, but Regional Water Quality Control Board staff are dropping the ball. The most recent data the board analyzed was submitted in 2008. What's happened in the last 2.5 years? Without annual analyses of the limited data this program collects, we won't figure out if water is being protected by current rules. Electronic data submission would make this ...

Someone needs to hold people accountable for their actions

Thank you for your latest article on this sad case (death of Patrick O'Connor update, which ran in the March 2 issue of the Journal). We are friends of the O'Connor family and some of us are involved with law enforcement.

Disappointed constituent

I am dismayed to see that our newly elected Congressman, Jeff Denham upon reaching Washington D.C. immediately organized an extravagant party. He raised $85,000 and spent $80,000 of it on this over the top celebration of himself. This seems way out of touch with the economic situation experienced by the people in his home district. Does he think people back home won't figure out what he is doing? He put out his hand to the lobbyists, took their money and had a party. One Indian group gave him $50,000 and another gave him $25,000 ...

Acetaminophen linked to childhood obesity

Two separate stories published online in the "American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine" have reported at connection between asthma and acetaminophen use (the active ingredient in Tylenol).

The realities of market allocation in our society

Understanding the sources of our national divisions is certainly important, particularly in light of recent events in Tucson. But the analysis offered by economics professor Walter Williams ("Why we're a divided nation," Jan. 19) is too simplistic, naïve, and historically myopic to help us much.
