Incumbents for School Board

October 23, 2009 | Dale Parkinson | Letters to the Editor


Bob Weaver for TUSD

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.

Josh Bernard has the skills needed to lead Turlock schools

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.

Bovine bologna

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.

Health care refinancing is not health care reform

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.

The need for health care reform

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.

Federal lands need protection

Dear Turlock Journal,

September 25, 2009 | | Letters to the Editor


Where are the police when you need them?

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.

Decades of service to Livingston High thrown away

I am half Portuguese, part Norwegian and part Dutch. The sea is in my blood by heritage; football by birthright.

Why is trash still expensive in Turlock?

Turlock Scavenger Company gets (the) bid to take over waste management garbage routes in unincorporated areas. These unincorporated area residents get a lowed monthly rate. Can you believe it? Their rate (of) $20.92 (falls) to $18.65, that's a savings of $2.27.

Bus routes important to all

Recently some of us who are dissatisfied with the local bus system went to Mr. (Roger) Fall, who manages the bus routes, and asked him to change the routes. He did not make a definite commitment, but he called two meetings on Sept. 23 at which time residents may air their grievances.

The Christian majority should be heard

As I picked up the Turlock Journal Wednesday morning, the first thing that caught my eye was an article entitled "In God We Trust?" With great interest I opened up the newspaper and read the article and my heart sank.

We need to remember

Thank you so much for bringing the sad fact that there are no Sept. 11 remembrance events held in town to the attention of the citizens of Turlock. For years I have been asking why the schools have done nothing on the anniversary of 9-11 every year. For the first couple of years I even tried calling my sons' school (Pitman) and told them how disappointed I was and asked them to please consider changing their "same as any other day" attitude.
