Cheerleaders too racy for parade

My family and I attended the Turlock Christmas parade. This is an annual event for us and we usually enjoy it to the fullest. This year was quite the opposite when the Stanislaus State cheerleaders came parading by with their behinds hanging out. This was very inappropriate and offensive to us and many others.

Be thankful to have a job

I find it odd that out of all the employees at the Turlock Raley's only five employees felt the need to honor the picket line. In talking to the employees who have decided to stay with Raley's and keep doing their jobs all have said that their wages and benefits are very fair. Everyone that I talked to was disheartened that the union refused to let them vote on the proposed settlement offered by Raley's management.

There are better ways to spend tax payers' money

I have lived in Stanislaus County for about 65 years. I know many residents of Turlock and most of us pay property tax in the mid to high 1,000s because we were thought to have back bone and to work and save and respect our country.

More communication, please

It was quite a surprise when we started getting a lot of kids coming in our (downtown) store looking for their Halloween candy. We were told by the city that there was not going to be anything going on this year. It seems that the powers of city hall don't want to keep the shops informed. I guess we don't count.

Back up the train, for the economy's sake

Is congressional candidate Jose Hernandez's support of the $96 billion high-speed rail boondoggle a sign that he doesn't grasp that California and Washington are both derailing the economy through deficit spending? Consultants alone have cost upwards of $12 million. Potential private investors consider the project too risky.

We need to know what's in our food

Are we going to allow the two largest contributors to the No on 37 campaign, Monsanto and Dupont - who told us Agent Orange and DDT are safe - convince us that we don't have a right to know what they're doing to our food?

Lowering gas prices and putting our nation on a path to energy independence

In the last week alone Californians have seen gas prices skyrocket to a state-wide average of $4.67 per gallon - a state record and currently the highest in the nation. Problems with pipelines and a power outage at one of the state's few remaining refineries exacerbated already tight fuel supplies causing the spike. But why has California's ability to meet the demand for gasoline - something needed by virtually every mom driving her kids to school, commuting worker, or small business owner - diminished to a point that has left California motorists extremely vulnerable to supply disruptions? These recent events ...

We need to reduce the nuclear weapons threat

Fifty years ago this week, the world woke up to a crisis that brought the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of a cataclysmic nuclear war.

White House, Congress failing to live up to responsibilities

According to dictionary.com a popular definition of sequestration is removal or separation. Although the term sequestration is being bandied about in relation to massive defense cuts that threaten our nation's military readiness, I prefer the term "divorce," because that is exactly what our elected leaders are doing with the Constitution that they have sworn to uphold.

Everyone has the right to freedom of speech

Several weeks ago, we decided to show support for the presidential candidate of our choice by placing a yard sign in our front yard. The night before last, someone tagged it by spray painting a red circle with a line through it on both sides of the sign. We decided we would keep the sign to show that this act of vandalism would not deter us from showing our support.

Read the props and then decide

Red alert; unions are lying to you again. They will say or do anything to keep the state of California politicos in their pockets.

Measure B: Time to fix Turlock's roads

Dear Editor,

August 29, 2014 | | Letters to the Editor


Time to take control of maintaining Turlock's roads

The citizens of Turlock will have the opportunity Nov. 4 to make a commitment to fixing Turlock roads by voting YES on Measure B. Turlock roads have suffered from years of neglect as a result of not having a dedicated funding source and it's time that we take control of maintaining our investment in Turlock's transportation infrastructure.
