The railroad tracks at Monte Vista were scheduled to be closed from Aug. 8 to Aug. 10 but Union Pacific Railroad has pushed the days back. The road is now scheduled to take place Monday, Aug. 22 to Wednesday, Aug. 24 and will be in effect at all hours.
Nearly a year to the date that the original Turlock skate park closed on Starr Avenue, the City of Turlock has finally completed their work on the new iteration of the Brandon Koch Memorial Skate Park. Skaters will be able to skate the park this afternoon as the City has planned a “soft opening” before holding a grand opening.
The races for Turlock City Council have been set, and these historic elections will each have candidates going head to head this November. The most unusual but expected race is between Councilman Steven Nascimento and Councilwoman Amy Bublak. Councilwoman Bublak was the only Councilmember displaced by the passage of Measure A, which set up the by-district elections. With her recent move in into District 4 earlier in the year, Councilwoman Bublak and Councilman Nascimento have been expected to compete for the opportunity to represent District 4 on the City Council.
The Turlock Chamber of Commerce is allowing members of Turlock to discuss the economy over breakfast in their Eggs, Issues & Economics event. During this event, Turlockers are invited to hear two featured speakers, Joe Raso and Bree Langemo, to share “critical steps to becoming informed, inspired, and innovative.”

After a push for campaign finance reform by Councilman Steven Nascimento since 2014, the Incumbent Council Candidate has come out of the gate in the first ever City of Turlock district election with a report of big money. For the Turlock City Council district races, the candidate’s campaign has already separated itself from the other potential candidates by receiving over $23,000 in monetary contributions. With loans and nonmonetary contributions, the Nascimento campaign has amassed over $27,000. The campaign is for a district comprised of approximately a quarter of the city.
