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.
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.
Red alert; unions are lying to you again. They will say or do anything to keep the state of California politicos in their pockets.
To the editor:
Word of mouth in the dairy industry has been spreading the bad news for months about how things are in California. But no matter what you've heard, it's worse.
While putting gas into my car today at $4.82/gal, I started thinking about congressional candidate Jose Hernandez. The last thing we need is another green politician in public office.
Yes, it's me again. I hope you are all paying attention to your water bills before you pay them.
It is my understanding that moving our "Califia" statue is being considered.
Eleven years ago, on the clear morning of September 11th, 2001, the men and women that went to work at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and those that boarded United flights 93 and 175, and American Airlines flights 11 and 77, did not know the tragic fate that lay before them.
It is impressive the legislation that Congressman Jeff Denham has authored or cosponsored on a variety of issues during his first term.
A low-cost spay and neuter clinic is needed immediately in our town of Turlock. There are abandoned and feral cats everywhere, on the street, in the neighborhood, in parking lots of shopping areas and restaurants.
I am very impressed with Turlock's new bus hub located at Golden State Boulevard and Hawkeye.
An open letter to: Mayor (John) Lazar, Turlock City Councilmembers Amy Bublak, Bill DeHart, Jr., Forrest White and Mary Jackson; Turlock Parks and Recreation manager Allison Van Guilder and Eric Schultz; Turlock Journal editor and staff; business owners, citizens and friends and family of my nephew, Brandon Koch.
Coming soon to California schools near you: larger classes, fewer courses, and an end to sports and arts programs.
I was disappointed to learn of Gary Soiseth's opposition to Measure B - the proposed half-cent sales tax dedicated to fixing Turlock roads. However, my disappointment quickly turned to frustration as I read Soiseth's rational for opposing Measure B.
Gary Soiseth is a really nice young man, but he has very little experience or involvement with the City of Turlock and only recently became a resident. Mike Brem has been a resident for over 20 years, he is a proven business leader - as the CEO of a very successful local business with over 100 employees, he has served in leadership roles with the Chamber of Commerce, is a longtime member and past president of Turlock Rotary, and has been a member of the city's planning commission for many years. Mike is very familiar with Turlock's unique needs ...
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.
As a longtime resident of Turlock, I have witnessed the increasing deterioration of Turlock roads. The limited funds from state and federal sources only provide funding for temporary repairs on a very limited basis and are mostly directed at specific projects such as the recent pavement improvements to Monte Vista Avenue and Canal Drive. The citizens of Turlock deserve better and passage of Measure B will be the first step to ensure that Turlock roads are fixed.
