Thanks for making holidays brighter for foster, at-risk youth

This year, Aspiranet partnered with 39 Starbucks stores in Stanislaus and Merced counties for our annual Holiday Gift Drive, where we collected 810 gifts for the foster and at-risk youth we serve with the help and generosity of Starbucks customers. The holidays, which can be a difficult time for our youth because they are separated from parents and/or siblings, becomes a time when our youth feel the support of the community.

Humbled by your love and support

As I reflect on this past year, 2014, I am humbled by the outpouring of love and support for the ministry of the Turlock Gospel Mission. It has been a groundbreaking year with the beginning of the construction of 437 Broadway Street building for the year around shelter for men, women and children, which we hope to complete in 2015.

Support brings Fusion Charter to life

On Nov. 20, Aspiranet's Fusion Charter, an independent charter that opened on Sept. 8, celebrated the new school together with students, parents, educators and guests. The event kicked off with a ribbon cutting ceremony by the Turlock Chamber of Commerce. I would like to thank Dr. Sonny Da Marto, superintendent, and Gil Ogden, director of student services for Turlock Unified School District, who were instrumental in executing the vision for Fusion Charter, and all of our community partners who made the opening of this school possible.

Desalination just makes plain sense

Desalination isn't just an obvious solution for the state's record drought; it's actually the only solution that will produce a reliable, drought proof water source. And while a comprehensive water management strategy is crucial in California, you can't manage what you don't have. The best most reliable measurement of California's water supply is the Sierra snowpack. In the 1960s one could find snow pack in the Sierra's at 10,000 feet year around. Today you're lucky if you can find snow at 14,000 feet, and the April 2014 rains didn't ...

Turlock roads lose again

With the narrow defeat of Measure B, fixing Turlock roads have taken a back seat again. To the 61 percent of Turlock voters willing to re-invest into fixing our critically important transportation infrastructure, the community thanks you. Unfortunately, a minority of voters have pushed much needed repairs down the road – a road that is in dire need of repair, filled with ever increasing potholes.

Turlock Firefighters-Local #2434 have never tried to control elected officials

It troubles me to hear that my organization has been referred to as the source of a fictional disease, "Power Grab Syndrome" (PGS), in an attempt to control the Turlock City Council, in an opinion offered on Oct. 30 by George King. I would like to take a moment to educate the readers of this forum about the political practices of the Turlock Firefighters- Local #2434.

Creating jobs for current and future workers is my top priority

As a parent, small business owner and local farmer, I know that the success of the Valley depends on our ability to create an environment where our kids can grow up here and stay for years to come. That's why my top priority is creating jobs here at home, helping kids born and raised here to stay and begin successful lives where they can find work.

Adam Gray has made the valley a better place

Over my career I have spent a great deal of time trying to make the San Joaquin Valley a better place for our families and communities. In that time I learned that we do best if we work and stand together when valley interests are at stake. They are at risk in next week's election.
