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?

Soiseth is wrong on Measure B

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.

Brem much more qualified to be our mayor

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 ...

Measure B money will stay in Turlock

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.

Measure B is right for Turlock

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.
