Sender's Market Weekly Ad & Grocery Specials Through November 19th

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/13/2019 09:04 AM
Mountain Ranch, CA...In 1950, we started out as a family operation with Erich’s father and mother, August and Freida Sender, in a century-old adobe building. The upstairs was home to the Sender family, and the first floor included groceries, a meat market, a bar, and a small eating place called Opa’s Smokehouse. On Christmas morning in 1968, the old store was destroyed by fire. But in June 1969, Sender’s Market, Inc. was opened. Since that time, there have been many changes, including remodeling, expansion, and the addition of many employees. That’s also when we added the truss plant and purchased Sender’s Market Ace Hardware in Valley Springs. Today, we're still family owned and still working hard to stock everything from pantry essentials to power tools. Whether you've got questions about the perfect cut of meat or the right kind of paint, our helpful, knowledgeable staff has you covered.

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/12/2019 09:14 PM

Calaveras County Board of Supervisors Vote 5-0 to Adopt New General Plan After 13 Years of Delays ~ John Hamilton

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/12/2019 12:36 PM
San Andreas, CA...This morning at the Calaveras county board of supervisors meeting the supervisors voted 5-0 to adopt a new general plan for Calaveras county. It has been since 2006 or 13 years since Calaveras county has had a functional general plan process. In the last 13 years there have been millions spent on consulting fees, planning fees, community meetings, community plans etc. In addition to the direct costs there have also been the indirect lost opportunity costs, lost wages and stagnant communities where even the projects that everyone left and right would want died stillborn or were bled to death from prolonged legal battles and almost certain death.

Calaveras Board of Supervisors to Vote on New General Plan Today

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/12/2019 08:01 AM
San Andreas, CA...The Calaveras County General Plan has been in limbo for 13 years. In 2006 the board voted for a general plan update moratorium. That started the process for a new general plan. In the subsequent 13 years there has been millions of dollars spent, countless hours wasted on community plans, housing projects killed or shelved because of the legal structural deficit of a general plan. So after millions of wasted tax dollars & tens of millions of lost investment in the county we may actually get a new general plan. The complete agenda is below...

Prescribed Burns Continue in Calaveras Big Trees State Park Area

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/12/2019 07:03 AM
Arnold, CA...California State Parks in cooperation with the California Department of Forestry and Fire protection (CAL FIRE) are planning to begin a series of prescribed burns beginning on or around the week of October 21, 2019 through the end of November in Calaveras Big Trees State Park. The goal is to complete 382 acres this fall (see maps below). Ignitions are expected to occur when weather conditions are favorable and adequate resources are available. Some of the units have been previously thinned to reduce the fuel loading, which allows for a safer and more controllable broadcast burn. Much of this work was funded through Propositions 84 and 1 grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, an agency of the State of California.
