Young adults need to know responsibilities of being a DD

"Designated driver refers to the selection of a person who remains sober as the responsible driver of a vehicle whilst others have been allowed to drink alcoholic beverages. Thus as a practical and ethical matter, a designated driver is a person who abstains from alcohol on a social occasion in order to drive his or her companions home safely as an alternative to driving under the influence."

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.

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.

Rushed groundwater measures hurt Valley economy, communities

We represent the San Joaquin Valley, one of the most productive farming regions in the country. Agriculture is a major reason why California is now the world's eighth largest economy. But the Legislature recently passed legislation that puts our ag economy and local jobs at risk.
