Love Turlock was a blessing

WOW! Was I ever blessed Saturday! I wish to thank Love Turlock for all the hard work they did on my front and back yard. God blessed me with the Love Turlock angels. They all worked hard on cleaning up my yard. Everyone of these sweet wonderful and loving people worked over three hours on making my yard beautiful again. I can't thank them enough. Dan Tallman was the project team leader. I have cried so many tears of joy; it's just unbelievable how all of these people opened their hearts and did this for me.

Is Councilwoman Bublak fiscally conservative?

I have followed government actions and policies most of my life; to me it is imperative that we are aware of what decisions and actions are being made on our behalf. Currently I have a few concerns about our local government I feel should be addressed so the voting public can make more informed decision about those representing us.

Thank you for warm welcome

As a recent visitor to your community I wanted to write to share my appreciation for the warm welcome we received. This past weekend, I, along with our university softball team traveled to Turlock from Canada to participate in the Cal State Stanislaus Tournament of Champions. It has been a number of years since our team has participated in this event and given our experience this year I am confident we will return again and again.

Recent studies have revealed some statistics that suggest the flu shot is less effective and much more dangerous than was believed previously.

Remembering patriotism

As a child, patriotism was instilled by our parents, church and school. We revered and respected the flag. Nearly every house flew a flag on holidays, and, businesses daily.

Denair schools downfall much more complicated

The idea that Denair's Superintendent Edward Parraz was too compassionate to make hard decisions, and specifically didn't want to lay off employees and thus is mainly responsible for the district's financial problems, is not supported by the report generated by CPA Teresa Ryland who, as required by state law, examined the district's financial planning, status, and history. Her job was to determine how Denair became one of seven districts out of 1,107 in California to receive a negative certification this year; they cannot pay their bills.

Public given ample time to comment on State Water Board proposal

I think it is important to clarify how important public comment is to the State Water Resources Control Board during this review process for proposed amendments to the 2006 Bay Delta Plan.

Long road to honor Turlock skater

I would like to tell you about another extraordinary young man who came out of Turlock about the same time as Colin Kaepernick. His name is Brandon Koch and he was an avid skateboarder, loving son, brother, friend and nephew and all around good guy. He was always there for anyone who needed him. Two articles have appeared in the Turlock Journal. The first is dated April 28, 2012, and the second August 15, 2012.

Turlock needs public gang database

Stanislaus County has between 10 and 12 thousand gang members, over 5,000 are documented gang members. To put these numbers into perspective, gang members in our community represent a higher number than the entire population of Denair, Del Rio, Westley, Grayson, Hickman, and Hughson combined.

We need to show Kap and family our support

Although local businesses are stepping up and showing Colin their support, does the City of Turlock have anything in the works, to show this young man and his family, the support they truly deserve?

We need a Kaepernick Day parade

I would like to suggest that the City of Turlock have a "Colin Kaepernick Day" that includes a parade down Main Street, with Kaep as the Grand Marshall and his parents riding in a car behind him. I believe this would show Kaep just how proud Turlock is of him. I'm quite sure that some of his team mates would come to Turlock with him.

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.

Measure B will benefit Turlock citizens

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.

Soiseth's overseas leadership experience needed in Turlock

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.

Soiseth is ready to lead our 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 ...

Soiseth has clear vision for Turlock

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.
