The realities of market allocation in our society

Understanding the sources of our national divisions is certainly important, particularly in light of recent events in Tucson. But the analysis offered by economics professor Walter Williams ("Why we're a divided nation," Jan. 19) is too simplistic, naïve, and historically myopic to help us much.

A generous community

Dear Editor, In this season of giving thanks, I would like to share a public thank you to everyone who helped to make Emanuel Medical Center's Legacy Circle fund drive such a success. The commitment of our many community and employee volunteers, and the generosity of our hundreds of donors, was truly inspiring. Together, they raised $1,007,000 during the six week fund drive to advance cardiovascular services at Emanuel. And, the generous giving continues - totaling $1,030,000 to date.I am so thankful to live in a community filled with such civic-minded, giving individuals who are ...

What is happening to dedicated city employees?

The citizens of Turlock deserve some answers. Long-term employees of the City of Turlock just keep disappearing from their departments and jobs. There are no explanations, though often it seems that there are allegations made against them just before they are "unavailable for comment." What kind of 'back room deals' are being made by the City? Why is any of this happening? What kind of plans are being put in the works 'behind closed doors' without any opportunity for public input as to what we really care about and value?

Prescription pseudoephedrine policy

An op-ed article from the New York Times tilted "How to Kill the Meth Monster" written by a colleague of mine, Rob Bovett, district attorney in Lincoln County, Oregon, was recently released. Rob and I also serve as advisory board members for ONDCP's National Methamphetamine and Pharmaceutical Initiative (CMPI). We have been traveling around the country assisting states contemplating the implementation of policy that would return pseudoephedrine (PSE) to its prescription status that existed prior to 1976. Oregon has five years of remarkable data touting its success and now Mississippi has become the second state to pass such legislation ...

Advertising extreme

It's not very often that I agree with burdensome rules and regulations set up by government to stifle businesses. The "Business Balk" article printed in the Journal last week made me chuckle after I read statements from business owners suggesting they are hurting due to a local sign ordinance that has outlived its useful life. I agree with the City's sign ordinance simply because it is silly to see grown men and women dancing on street corners dressed in a Halloween costume, a dill pickle, or oil can in vain attempts to sell a sandwich. What should be ...

Congratulations to Turlockā€™s new council members

I would like to congratulate Councilman-Elect Dehart and Councilman-Elect White on their win and I wish them the best. To the people that not just gave me their vote but also their trust I want to say thank you and that words cannot describe how honored I am to have had your support. I presented to you who I am and intend to stay true to myself in all my endeavors throughout life. This election showed me that someone with a good message that is being honest does have a chance to win elected office. Even though I did not ...

Continuing the fight

Every year on this day I do a lot of self-reflecting. Why you may ask? Because 14 years ago on Aug. 1 I lost my mother to breast cancer, and not a day goes by without the hope that I have turned out to be someone she would be proud of.
