Since when does a month contain 36 days?

A few years ago when I heard that the city was installing water meters on all the homes in town, I knew that it was going to have nothing to do with water conservation, and everything to do with getting money out of our pockets.

A caring community in a moment of crisis

I want to thank all the wonderful people of Turlock who helped my family last Thursday (Aug. 25) afternoon; it is really comforting to live in a city where people care for each other.

Libraries important resource for adults, children

I am writing you in support of the Hilmar Library and all that it has to offer to the community. It is important to stop the reduction of hours and possible future closure of the Hilmar Library.

Vote ‘yes’ for libraries

It is very disheartening to read the Turlock Journal article, "Save our library," that ran on July 13. The news item announced that because of budget cuts further reductions were necessary in the Hilmar and Merced County area. The Hilmar library would be open only 20 hours a week, down from 32 hours a week last fall.

Fireworks should be seen, not heard

I enjoy fireworks as much as anyone else. However, fireworks should be "visual!" What I am against is the purchase of fireworks with the "big bang" noise that sounds like a military assault.

School cuts should start at the top

We went to our grandson's promotion from 8th grade at the Turlock Jr. High School (TJHS). The principal was speaking and introducing several people. The one that really got my attention was the introduction of his three vice principals. Why in the world does he need three vice principals for two grades?

Supervisors should support sheriff

I am appalled at the lack of support members of our County Board of Supervisors are offering Sheriff Adam Christianson. They are well aware that in order for the Sheriff to run his department efficiently he must have adequate funding. Without that basic level of support, his job is much, much harder. If the department was adequately funded, he would have the ability to delegate supervisory positions that would address accusations that there could be a lack of employee oversight. It was the county's budget cuts that caused this situation in the first place. If the supervisors do not ...

Trust and confidence

Recently, law enforcement in our county has experienced a number of instances where law enforcement officers have made poor choices, violating their oath of office and the values and principles we pride ourselves on as a profession. Some have made mistakes that compromise their personal integrity and perhaps, your trust. While these cases are tragic within their own right, they do not represent the vast majority of dedicated public servants who serve with distinction and decency every day.

Gary Soiseth is a breath of fresh air

My family and I met Gary Soiseth this last Saturday when he walked through my neighborhood in the rain. He spoke about his commitment to a positive campaign without negative attacks against his opponent. He spoke about moving Turlock in an even stronger direction. And he spoke about bringing new energy and new ideas to City Hall. All of which I agree with.

Roman Catholic Bishops support Proposition 47

Proposition 47 is the one proposition on the ballot for which the Roman Catholic Bishops of California have taken a position of support. "The California Safe Neighborhoods Act" is a step forward in reforming the broken criminal justice system in our state. It will provide educational support and treat mental illness to make our communities safer while addressing sentencing discrepancies in constructive ways.

Our community would be fortunate to have Soiseth as Mayor

Gary Soiseth recently volunteered to spend a day speaking with high school students about his experiences in Afghanistan and his commitment to public service. After hearing him speak, I felt that any community would be fortunate to have him as a leader. He is intelligent, well-spoken, and most importantly, he is passionate. As a teacher, I value his desire to help the youth of tomorrow discover their potential, and I applaud his efforts to help them achieve their goals. Gary's ability to connect with the youth of today will help foster the generation of tomorrow.

Turlock leadership choices

Turlock is a community on the move, growing jobs, attracting new economic development and emerging as one of the best places to live and work in the Central Valley. At the core of this success is the recognition that confronting our community's challenges and capitalizing on new opportunities requires a team effort to mobilize our community's assets and the active cooperation of business, civic and political leaders around core objectives. This is why the leadership choices Turlock voters make in November are so important. This is why, after conducting extensive interviews with all the candidates, the Turlock Chamber ...

Gary Soiseth for Mayor of Turlock

Turlock has been blessed with many dedicated and talented elected leaders throughout the city's history. Turlock is recognized as a special place to live in large part because of the policies of the past that have shaped the present. To insure a bright and prosperous future Turlock must have a mayor with vision and the strength to make many difficult and informed decisions. On Nov. 4 Turlock voters will consider two very well qualified men seeking this important position.
