Many Turlock residents driving around Dennis Earl Elementary School over the past week were shocked to find all of the trees lining the front grounds of the school cut down.
Fifteen mature trees were cut down along the school’s frontage on N. Olive Avenue and Christoffersen Parkway, markedly changing the landscape of the northeast Turlock intersection.
Jane MacIver, who has been living in the neighborhood surrounding the school for over 20 years, found the mass tree destruction disturbing. “It was so horrific to see all these trees flattened,” said MacIver. “They should have done some kind of conservation of some sort…I was just astounded.” To read the full article visit www.turlockjournal.com #TurlockJournal #CommunityNews #Turlock #ireadTJ #DennisEarl #TUSD #Trees

Isela Scroggins, a hairstylist at Suddenly Perfect hair salon, is buoyant, bubbly and there is no way to tell, other than her laborious rising from a high-seated chair, that just two weeks ago she received one of her best friend’s kidneys.
After she languished on the transplant waiting list for a year and a half, enduring torturous nine to 10-hour daily dialysis treatments, Rocio Valencia, who first met Isela at Adrian’s Beauty College in Turlock, found out that she would be a perfect donor match. When other family and friends tested failed to a match, this news came as a welcome surprise. Rocio had become frustrated at the lack of progress and decided to start the long testing process. She was elated that things appeared to be coming together. “It felt right,” she says. “Everything had lined up perfectly. It was amazing.” Both women have started Go Fund Me pages for donations and Westside Ministries is holding a fundraiser complete with a chicken BBQ dinner from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at 952 Columbia Ave., in Turlock. Tickets can be purchased at Carr’s Cleaners, Bliss Salon & Spa (Rocio’s shop), ROQ Fit, Suddenly Perfect or Westside Ministries.

Turlock resident Jodie Wilson never thought she would become a business owner one day. She was just a mom trying to raise funds for her son’s field trip the first time she dipped an apple into a crockpot filled with warm, gooey caramel, selling the delicious treats to friends and neighbors who knew how badly her son wanted to travel to Washington, D.C. What began as a way to raise money was a hit with sweet-lovers around town, and now Wilson is known as “The Apple Chick,” creating candy apples by the hundreds for Turlockers to enjoy. “I got started by making a batch of caramel apples, and after my son’s trip was paid for, people kept asking for more apples and it just grew from there,” said Wilson. “Everyone has been really supportive.” To read the full article visit www.turlockjournal.com #TurlockJournal #CommunityNews #Turlock #ireadTJ #TheAppleChick *Photo contributed
