Every person in Turlock and the surrounding communities, really does need to understand how lucky we are to have such honest and reputable auto dealers here. Your local dealerships are all family-owned and employ many of your friends and neighbors; and it has been my experience that these employees are some of the nicest, kindest and most professional people in our community. Yes, we have all heard of how the U.S. auto industry has been in trouble recently, but this is not of your local dealers making. Let's all find it in our hearts to keep our auto ...
Is the Turlock City Council living in a dream world? Their actions seem to indicate they are for the following reasons:
In response to the letter to the editor about Westside discrimination which ran in the July 8 issue of the Journal, I agree 100 percent with the writer.
California State University, Stanislaus administration has expressed deep concern for the state of the California State budget. Why then, have they dismantled a perfectly good sign at the Monte Vista and Del's Lane entrance? Are they preparing the area for a different sign at the entrance to match those on Crowell Road and Geer Road? What about the sculpture that has been removed from the Del's Lane entrance?
Recently we, and the Turlock community, lost two of the nicest, most giving people we had ever met. This couple donated many hours of service here and died within weeks of each other. Shirley and Roger will be warmly remembered by everyone who knew them.
The nomination by our President Obama for Judge Sotomayor made me very proud as a Latina who, like Sotomayor, believed in the power of education.
Have you ever noticed that when people say they hate attorneys, that it's usually their own attorney that they hate? The costs of hiring an attorney are often more than the cases are worth, even if you win!
The hit and run homicide, which occurred on Jan. 31, of my son Kelly R. Story has still not been solved. The shooting of my grandson in 2007 and the robbery of my parents in 2008 also remain unsolved.
What an awesome family event on July 4 hosted by the Turlock Chamber of Commerce.
The "Roads are Deplorably Bad" headline (which ran on the "This week in HISTORY" page of the July 4 issue of the Journal) could have been written today, July 6, 2009, a repeat of the 1909 headline!
If helping people to avoid health problems is the purpose of recent Journal articles regarding the H1N1 "pandemic," then please share these numbers with your readers.
I commend and support (California State University, Stanislaus President Hamid Shirvani and Dr. Milt Richard's) decision to hire Larry Reynolds as the new CSUS Head Basketball Coach. I have known Larry for over 35 years and can personally attest to his qualifications both as a basketball coach and a quality person. You have selected an outstanding individual to lead your student athletes and your basketball program to great heights.
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.
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.
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 ...
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.
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has the political power to help raise huge campaign dollars for congressional candidates like Michael Eggman in hopes of once again becoming Speaker.
Our family contracted with Supherb Farms to grow basil for several years. One finds when in business there are always challenges to face in an ever-changing environment and growing basil was no exception. The one constant I found through my experience with Supherb Farms was my high regard for the folks of whom I had the opportunity to meet. Each one projected competence, helpfulness, problem-solving ability, work ethic, confidence and quiet humility. When I look back on those days and the great people of Supherb Farms, I see now that they were a reflection of their leader and CEO, Mike ...
