Local Assyrian-Americans encouraged by Obama's plan against ISIS


The Assyrian-American community in Turlock has been outspoken about the need to help those terrorized by Islamic State militants.

In the conference room of the Assyrian-American Civic Club of Turlock, members watched closely as Pres. Obama outlined his four-point plan Wednesday evening to degrade and destroy the terrorist group ISIS.

"It has been frustrating as an Assyrian-American to see the lack of action up until this point," club member Matthew Jacob said.

In addition to Sunni and Shia Muslims, Assyrian Christians are among the tens of thousands of religious minorities Obama said were at grave risk from ISIS.

"He mentioned the Christian minorities that are being displaced right now and the humanitarian aid that needs to be sent to them. That's very comforting for me to hear," Jacob said.

Club member Bella Daniel welcomed the focus on local Iraqi security forces.

OAKDALE — For Mary Ann Henriquez the road to farming began in grade school with 4-H and FFA. But it was as a student at Modesto Junior College that she committed to it as a profession.

“My brother took over dad’s dairy operation and because I didn’t want to see the beef cows go, I got a loan – which wasn’t easy – and bought them,” Henriquez remembered. “I’ve been running cattle since 1987: Holstein steers, cows, calves, stockers and Holstein feeders.”

How to use social media to manage your brand

How to use social media to manage your brand

MODESTO — Social Media is no longer a tool of the future; it’s the here and now. In fact, Adrenna Alkhas, president of the Central Valley Public Relations Organization, says social media is today’s biggest brand management trend.

The most important part of brand management is “consistency in your messaging,” Alkhas said. Everything a company puts out should display the same message. From color schemes, to taglines, to what platforms you use to engage your audience, everything should be synonymous with your message.
