Increase in regional bus fares will have negative impact on those who need public transit the most

The new proposed changes to the BLAST Transit will result in decreased ridership and revenue; creating a hardship for those who depend on public bus services to go to the library, doctors, hospital, schools, do necessary shopping and go to work or school.

Community support of Fusion Charter students much appreciated

On April 5, 15 local businesses and organizations provided information about employment opportunities to 130 students at Fusion Charter's first career fair. Attendees also heard from three guest speakers who shared information on what employers are looking for from job candidates to what type of experience they can include on a first resume.

Homelessness in our area

As a college student studying homelessness in the last 2 months, I have concluded that more efforts have to be exerted to help put an end to the issue of homelessness and help those in need. Despite efforts by various programs and shelters to try and help the homeless people, many of them have not received proper funding by the state, leaving several citizens in need of help. Many people throughout the community are aware of the growing epidemic of homelessness throughout Stanislaus County. According to Stanislaus Housing & Support Services Collaborative, in 2015 there were approximately 1,400 homeless men ...

Your Views

I wish that, when presented with a street closure request by Mr. Cipponeri who sought to completely supplant our non-profit, volunteer Turlock Certified Farmers' Market-time, place, and location-that the Turlock City Council had simply accepted the permit for review and turned it down.

Shady dealings should not be part of our elected officials' agenda

I have been following the controversy in regards to the farmers market, I read where Mr. Cipponeri and his father in-law had contributed to then-candidate now Mayor Gary Soiseth. I am surprised nobody has made a bigger issue of this.

Reforms needed to prevent lasting divisions from forming in Turlock

A city is made up of roads, sidewalks, parks, schools, and stores. Most importantly, a city is a community of various individuals living their lives. Different cities have different characteristics and atmospheres. They carry in them different experiences and histories. They mean different things to different people. However, in what seems to be this simple question, one finds that the complexities of life are demonstrated in the social fabric of modern civilization, the city.

Farmers' market debate over future of Turlock events

It became clear during the Turlock City Council meeting of Feb. 20 that the debate over the future of the city's farmers' market is in large part a debate over the future and character of Turlock.

Year round market detrimental to businesses

As committed downtown business owners, we have enjoyed contributing to the revitalization of Main Street over the past few years. We have been delighted to see the Farmers' Market evolve and bring so much life to our downtown. However, the success of the market has not come without sacrifices being made on our parts, most specifically related to a portion of Main Street being closed each week.

100 new members for the Carnegie's 100th year birthday

Turlock is a great city with a lot to be proud of, from our college campus to our fairgrounds to our downtown. We are just as fortunate to have an institution like the Carnegie Arts Center in our own backyard. The unique events they offer to all residents– including world-class art exhibits, free family activities, classes, concerts, lectures, dance, poetry and theater programs – make our city and region a more enriching and exciting place to live. They even play host to the Sunshine Strummers, a local ukulele group that I've been known to frequent from time to time!

Council considering change to farmers' market is 'slap in the face'

It makes us incredibly sad as current members of the Turlock Certified Farmers' Market when we read the Turlock City Council is still considering who will get the upcoming market. It's hard to understand what there is to consider when the town already has a good market, a market that has proven itself year after year. Derek Griffin has done an amazing job as the acting manager, bringing in vendors and adding special events to offer a market for all of the community. Young or old, there is something for everyone.

Turlock Farmers’ Market will continue, better than ever

Over the past few weeks, I've read many letters supporting a market in downtown Turlock. I too am a supporter of a market in downtown Turlock. Unfortunately, the current management of the market (Turlock Certified Farmers' Market or TCFM) failed to apply for a street closure permit for the 2016 season before another party (Golden State Farmers Market Association or GSFMA) applied. Based on past practices, street closure permits are processed by City staff to the first party to apply; in this case, it was GSFMA.
