Around Turlock – March 23

As the sign says, “This office is closed until further notice.”

The Turlock Superior Courthouse, located at 300 Starr Ave. between the Brandon Koch Memorial Skate Park and the former Turlock Police Department, has been closed since Oct. 1, 2009. The State of California decided at that time to temporarily close the court as a budget saving measure.

The Turlock Superior Courthouse now looks unlikely to reopen, ever.

The State of California recently approved the construction of a new, $277 million, 26-room courthouse in Downtown Modesto. One of that facility’s stated goals is to consolidate all existing Stanislaus County courthouses, leading to the permanent closure of Turlock’s courthouse.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
