With the drought ending for the most part in this part of California, agriculture will have enough water once again to produce its bounty and prove farming is the economic base of the valley. Saying that, many are thinking ahead and bringing about a new and unique water resource project for the west side of Stanislaus County.
The new proposed federal budget is targeting cuts to the national Meals on Wheels programs. Here in Stanislaus County, Meals on Wheels supports local seniors aged 60 and over by providing excellent meals in a home delivery system. These meals are also provided at senior feeding sites throughout the county. These worthy programs will end if the cuts are approved by Congress in the next fiscal
As a volunteer with the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I hear many stories from cancer patients and caregivers, including my high school coach's son. He was starting a new job and didn't have insurance when he was diagnosed with cancer. Before the Affordable Care Act, he would have been denied insurance coverage due to a pre-existing illness and would have been on his own to finance an expensive fight against cancer. He recently underwent surgery to remove part of his spine and the rest of three ribs and will have to travel to undergo proton radiation ...
Here we are starting a brand new year in a brand new position. I will to officially say thank you to the Turlock voters of the newly formed District 2. According to the official election results, 3,876 of you stepped up and voted in this election; that is over 66 percent of our District saying "YES" we are here and we choose to be represented.
To the outpour of generosity displayed by the community of Turlock during the holidays through our gifts for kids program, all of us at the Post Office would like to express our gratitude for your donations. Over 130 children received toys this year! Thank you so much for the smiles and happy faces that two of our carriers were able to witness as they dressed up as Mr. and Mrs. Claus to deliver their gifts.
As we begin the new year, I wish to take this opportunity to thank the voters in Turlock, Denair and Hughson who supported my re-election as Trustee for Area 3 of The Yosemite Community College District.
Since the end of the election and the beginning of the Donald Trump presidential era I feel that great distancing and a large cultural and political fissure has been established where once there was only a crack. As an American of Mexican descent, I am finding hard to reconcile what I believed about the innate goodness of Americans and the reality of what just happened. We have elected a president who has vomited such racially charged language against people like me and my family that it is impossible for me to let go and accept our new reality. For the ...
This will mark the first time that we have decided to publicly and proudly endorse a candidate. Ramson and I are pleased to support Amy Bublak in the race for Turlock City Council in District 4. Amy is an exceptional individual who has tirelessly served her community in various settings for many years. She is fair, ethical, dedicated and a very hard worker.
Together, we're excited to offer our support for Amy Bublak as your neighborhood's member of the Turlock City Council. It's never been more important to choose a proven and courageous leader of integrity. We don't support candidates lightly, but there's too much at stake in this race, so we've come together to jointly endorse Amy as the ideal candidate.
I support Abe Rojas for reelection. Abe is a committed individual who supports his community. I remember Abe and Sharon Rojas organizing and being present at the Rhythm Beaters events so the youth could have a venue to go to. Abe established the Kaleidoscope, brought live bands, made the City of Turlock Recreation Department what it was meant to be. Abe did not stop there. He was involved in officiating sporting events, was an announcer at sporting events and was involved in planning and developing Pedretti Park. During this period, Abe was involved with his children's events; today he ...
Bickering between Abe Rojas, Bill Holly, and their supporters is a tragic reflection of how most Americans feel about this election. The theme of choosing between the most unpopular candidates for president is being played out right here in the Valley in this race for college board.
