Answers to vaccine questions

Dear Editor,

A few questions for vaccine advocates

If vaccines are as safe and effective as our government and vaccine proponents claim, answering these questions will be easy and reassuring.

The middle class is going, going...

I was listening and reading about the plight of yet another successful industry going out of business - the dairy industry. Dairy folks receive generous subsidies, but still aren't protected against mountains of regulations or imports. What really is happening it that the corporations want all those cows to be corporate cows and some poor guy from Paraguay to come in and do all the work of taking care of dairy cows then get lost.

City council not respectful of citizens’ Debely concerns

I am concerned about the impact that an estimated 3.75 fold increase in the use of Joe Debely Stadium will have on the adjacent neighborhood. So, for the first time in a long time, I attended a meeting of the Turlock City Council on Dec. 1. Based on what I witnessed and experienced there, I now have much greater concerns.

Further cuts to arts classes would be devastating

It may have come to your attention that there have been, and still are, drastic budget cuts considered for the arts at California State University, Stanislaus. As a Piano Performance major, I would be extremely devastated if such a thing would be allowed to happen. If these budget cuts were allowed to happen, all private lessons (meaning one-on-one time with an instructor specifically for that instrument) would be canceled, because nearly all instruments taught at CSU Stanislaus Department of Music are taught by part-time faculty. If the budget were to be cut, those positions would be the first to go ...

Shirvani has been a good leader during tough times

The current economic recession has financially impacted our entire community. Businesses, families, local governments and our local university, CSU Stanislaus, have been significantly impacted. Tough decisions have been required of all our leaders. Unfortunately, these decisions are necessary in order to ensure the continued viability of our local businesses, governments, and the university.

A surprise encounter

Recently, I was shopping at Orchard Supply Hardware for electrical supplies when I had a problem. At age 85 my joints and muscles limit what I can physically do. The electrical PVC elbows that I needed were far back in the bottom bin. I tried to stretch my limbs to reach them. I knew that if I slid down to the floor, I would not be able to get up. What can I do? I was alone, but then I saw a gentleman down the aisle and I called to him asking if he would help me. He said, "certainly ...

A new era

Turlock now seems to have entered into a new era. It is one of big city politics with all the earmarks and unwarranted spending that accompanies self-interested politicians. This is ever more apparent with the recent action that the city council has taken. The council has advocated and decided to allow for the misappropriation of Redevelopment Agency funds to remodel the football stadium at Turlock High School. It was an effort headed by Councilman Ted Howze which can be argued to be an attempt by him to score political points leading into his endeavor for re-election next year. He hopes ...

Vaccination articles are a benefit to the community

David Dubyak accused the Turlock Journal of rubberstamping the flu shot recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institute of Health in his recent letter to the editor. I have been reading the series of science related articles, published on Saturdays, and authored by Dr. E. Kirsten Peters in your editorial page. I suspect, based on your inclusion of these articles, that your action was an intelligent choice, rather than a rubberstamp.

University misrepresents faculty workload

As a faculty member in the Chemistry department at Cal State Stanislaus, I will miss teaching Winter term. Over the last 16 years, I have taught 14 winter term classes, including Wine Making, Environmental Chemistry and the Chemicals in Your Life. One very large point of misinformation presented by Provost Lujan must be clarified. In his letter to the editor, he stated "Faculty are not required to teach during Winter Term even though they are paid for 10 months of teaching. Less than five percent of the faculty teaches a Winter Term course, which means that 95 percent of the ...

Ready to set a clear vision for Turlock's future

I wanted to take a moment, in this post-election fog, to say thank you to the residents of Turlock for electing me as their next mayor. I am humbled to have gained the confidence of my city and the opportunity to lead our community for the next four years. I will work diligently to bring the vision I have discussed and campaigned on into reality.
