Re: “Local Heroes 2014

When will you feature Jacky Turchick? She started the fight to close American Atomics, and lead it. Then she was a central figure in the Sanctuary Movement. Then she helped start a free clinic for migrant farm workers. Then she helped start an orphanage and school in Zambia. Then she played an important role in getting the Mission Linen superfund site cleaned up. Then she played a large role in the creation and design of a new neighborhood pocket park in Barrio San Antonio and started, from her own pocket, the tradition of putting out toys for kids to play with in the sand play area. Then she was on the committee overseeing the design for the flood basin project. Then she got a neighborhood improvement project done with water harvesting and trees and more items in the park and pedestrian improvements along Park, North of Broadway...and I am likely forgetting some other things...
But thanks for featuring Jacky's good friend Laurie, who co-authored a children's book and worked in Sanctuary with her.
Also more than deserving mention is Kathi Padilla, without whom Sanctuary would have died in 1985 and who decided to start the orphanage in Zambia, which she did with great effort and great success.

Re: “Local Heroes 2014

I would also nominate a TPD officer, a TFD firefighter, BP agent and all armed services branches. The garbageman, the meter reader and all the local teachers and business people that make this town what it is. Sorry if I left anybody out.

Merry Christmas and may God bless.

HIV/AIDS always involves yeast and yeast always involves mycotoxins or metabolic acids from yeast. I am saying it twice so you remember! You cannot have a suppressed immune system without metabolic, dietary or lifestyle ...

Re: “A Trip Down Peyote Way

This article tries to remain objective but the conservative under tones are obvious. I agree that it is okay to ask for donation of $200 to cover the cost of staying 2 night s and to be given, possibly a once in a lifetime glimpse into the unknown and to be closer to Mother Earth & God.

Re: “Never Forgotten Brother

It sounds like a drug deal gone bad. No doubt the killer told somebody.

Good luck to you Ms Whitfield. Somebody is going to have to help the Police with info.

Re: “Claim Jumper

Gee, do you think that Cuffari's patronage job with the county might have something to do with his change of heart?
