Seniors thank community for support

The Turlock Senior Citizens had a very successful "Yard" Sale last week that, because of weather and the generosity of everyone, stayed indoors. Thanks to the community, it was well attended. Many members were very generous with their time to sort, price, and assist with the selling and clean up, making a big job light.

Less literature will not make our students more competitive

Hidden in the political controversy surrounding the Obama administration's Common Core Standards educational program is the fact that students will spend much less time and effort learning about American and English literature. The theory is that students need more practice in "technical-informational" reading to be competitive in the world market.

Medi-Cal reimbursement cuts affect everyone

Columbine, Sandy Hook Elementary, Aurora, Colo. These top headlines are some of the most recent and memorable stories we have seen in the news. But, yet, our government wants to see more!

Sales tax, better workers could fix roads

If we must have a tax to repair the roads in Turlock, then I am in favor of a sales tax increase. This increase needs to affect all, since everyone who drives uses the roads. I just spent $450 to repair a popped tire and a bent spindle in my car from the potholes in the road.

Newsom has always been pro-drugs

The primary goal of drug legalization advocates has been to convince the general public that marijuana is a harmless plant. Of course, they are aware of the fact that so called "medical" marijuana is grossly abused, and store front dispensaries are nothing more than legitimized (Prop 215) drug dealing operations.

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.

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.

I Support Mike Brem for Mayor

Our family contracted with Supherb Farms to grow basil for several years. One finds when in business there are always challenges to face in an ever-changing environment and growing basil was no exception. The one constant I found through my experience with Supherb Farms was my high regard for the folks of whom I had the opportunity to meet. Each one projected competence, helpfulness, problem-solving ability, work ethic, confidence and quiet humility. When I look back on those days and the great people of Supherb Farms, I see now that they were a reflection of their leader and CEO, Mike ...
