Local elected leaders of the community will be heading to the Larsa Banquet Hall for the Government Night Town Hall.
Constituents have been asking about Congressman Denham’s vote on repealing Obamacare since the vote was postponed, and then later cancelled, Denham didn’t end up revealing how he was going to vote.
Also a topic for the majority of our area is illegal immigration. From local law enforcement to federal laws with enforcement, what will local leaders advocate?
Denham will most likely be asked about if he believes President Trump’s tax returns should be released or subpoenaed, along with national topics such as war, budgets, and trade.
Taxes (specifically the historic huge California state gas tax hike), jobs, the economy, public safety, and such could be discussed by local officials.
Along with Congressman Denham, State Assemblyman Heath Flora, Stanislaus County Supervisor Vito Chiesa, and Turlock Mayor Gary Soiseth will be fielding questions at the town hall.
The Government Night Town Hall is asking people to register for the event, and it already has 850 seats registered. The idea behind registration is to make sure that there are enough seats reserved for the constituents.
“The whole idea is that it doesn’t get overwhelmed with people from the outside that are coming in to beat pots and pans. We really want to hear from locals to talk about local issues,” said Mayor Gary Soiseth at the Stanislaus State One on One with Mayor on Apr. 5.
A newsletter from Congressman Jeff Denham is highlighting important things to know about arriving to the town hall for attendees.
Those who participate in the RSVP registration system will be able to check-in to the town hall earlier than those who had not. Advanced RSVP registrants will be able to check-in at 5 p.m. and constituents who didn’t will check-in at 5:30 p.m.
While the check-in times may differ, both are encouraged to come early in order to get the best seat possible. Seating that would be reserved for those who are elderly or who have disabilities will be released to others by 6:15 p.m.
Be prepared to have proof of residency at the door. Students of Modesto Junior College and California State University Stanislaus need only show their student ID card.
Those who are non-constituents will be allowed in once constituents have been accommodated and as space allows.
No signs will be admitted into the building, and no backpacks, oversized bags, or packages will be allowed inside. Purses of reasonable size will be allowed.
This town hall is expected to begin at 6 p.m. on Apr. 17 at the Larsa Banquet Hall, located at 2107 East Monte Vista Avenue, in Denair.
Charter representatives have indicated that there have been outages affecting the Turlock area.
One representative on the phone said that there was a problem at the "head end," the central location where all of the equipment is located. For our service area, that was said to be in Turlock.
The outage occurred for Turlockers, and those in the nearby areas, at approximately 1:30 p.m. and appears to be affecting Charter services such as internet and cable.
Charter representatives say that it has crews working to resolve the problem.
Representatives don’t have any estimates for the time when services will be restored, however, with an outage this size, representatives are expecting it to be out for a few more hours.
Long outages with Charter services occurred last year in June and October 2016, and January of this year.
TurlockCityNews.com will provide an update should more information become available.
Video, internet, and phone services have been impacted in the outage. There is currently no timetable for when services will be returned. Services have been down since approximately 1:30 p.m.
Previous services outages have been attributed to damaged fiber optic lines, resulting in outages that were hours long.
Details behind this outage are not yet available, but an update will be provided when more information is released.
Engineering teams are already responding to the issue to get it resolved.
"An issue with a third party carrier's network is impacting services for customers in the Turlock area. Our engineering team has engaged that carrier and are working to restore services as quickly as possible. We apologize to any customers who may be impacted," said Charter’s Regional Communications - Northwest representative, Brett Picciolo.
The burglary occurred at approximately 3:45 a.m. on Apr. 19, when a man broke the glass on the front door of the commercial building located on the 200 block of Golden State Boulevard, according to Turlock Police Department Spokesman Sergeant Neil Cervenka.
Despite breaking the glass, the man failed to pull property out of the door.
High resolution video surveillance would result in images of the suspect and his vehicle.
Later in the day around 12:07 p.m., the vehicle was spotted and stopped by the TPD.
Jeronimo Torres Sr., 44, was arrested for commercial burglary and possession of narcotics.
Torres had been recently arrested by the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department for vehicle theft, possession of stolen property, and possession of drugs in a jail facility on Apr. 8, however, he would be released from custody on Apr. 11.
Jeronimo Torres Sr. also goes by Jeronimo Torres Jr., as both names appear in these arrests, “appear to be the same person,” according to Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department Spokesman Sgt. Anthony Bejaran.
The new building, owned by Sargon Malek, D.C. and that sits on the land where the old Red Steer was located, endured months of building and construction to eventually become Malek Chiropractic. The chiropractic office is located at 203 S. Golden State Boulevard, suite A, next to the Turlock Chamber of Commerce and Central Park.
