Death of local education decision making

They're at it again. Many of the people who brought us the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act in 2001 are back. Prepare yourself for the nightmare of the Common Core Standards. American schools have witnessed an 11 year federal takeover of education and mandatory standardized testing with "drill and kill" test preparation. Drop-out rates for at-risk students remained high as school became more and more meaningless to these students who usually live in our poorest communities. Reading levels remained stagnant, and comparable to pre-NCLB years. Racial and socio-economic achievement gaps barely budged, despite promises to the contrary. This ...

City trouble

I have lived in the same home for over 50 years. It was passed down to me by my parents. I have always paid my taxes and tried to be a good neighbor. Now the city has forced me to be homeless.

Future bright for downtown

In her recent editorial, Kristina Hacker asks "whatever happened to Turlock's bridal district?" It is a good question, and in fact, she partially answers it herself. Whether or not the concept was a good idea, the timing could not have been worse. Launched in January 2008 at a time when vacancies downtown were near zero, the Turlock Downtown Property Owner's Association attempted to create a long term vision for downtown to attract new businesses and keep downtown flourishing for years to come.

Freedom of religion ignored in federal health plan mandates

On Friday, January 20, 2012, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) ruled that virtually all private health plans will be required to include sterilization and contraceptives, including abortion inducing drugs. A very restricted "religious exemption" is granted to religious groups only if they are serving people of the same belief in a very narrow setting such as a parish and employ people of their own faith. However, the Catholic Church in her health and social services reaches out to all those in need. In effect, the HHS ruling is presuming to define how the Catholic Church ...

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.
