Jackson, CA...On the morning of the 23rd a Pioneer Man was heading south on Hwy 49 in his Honda and a Modesto man was heading northbound in his Chevy Malibu. The Modesto man looked down to adjust his radio and took his eyes off the road for a few seconds. That was enough for his vehicle to drift across the double yellows and into the path of the Honda. The impact sent the Honda down an embankment and its driver to Sutter Roseville with moderate injuries.

President Trump on Supporting America’s Farmers and Ranchers

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/24/2019 08:41 AM
Washington, DC...Okay, well, thank you very much. Great honor to be here with some of the most incredible people in our country — people that have been with me from the beginning and I’ve been with them from the absolute beginning. The relationship has been very good. So we’re here with the vital action support for the American farmers: people that we love; people that have been going for a long time and they’ve done really well, and they have ups and they have downs. It’s a wild business, but you wouldn’t trade it for anything. I know that, right? I know that, a hundred percent.

British PM Theresa May Announces Her Upcoming Resignation on June 7th

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/24/2019 07:35 AM
London, UK..Ever since I first stepped through the door behind me as Prime Minister, I have striven to make the United Kingdom a country that works not just for a privileged few, but for everyone. And to honour the result of the EU referendum. Back in 2016, we gave the British people a choice. Against all predictions, the British people voted to leave the European Union. I feel as certain today as I did three years ago that in a democracy, if you give people a choice you have a duty to implement what they decide.

Stanislaus National Forest Revises Donnell Fire Closure Order Opening Additional Forest Area

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/23/2019 02:23 PM
Sonora, CA...Stanislaus National Forest Supervisor Jason Kuiken signed forest order STF-16-2019-09, amending the forest areas closed due to the Donnell Fire. The forest order was signed May 22 and is scheduled to expire Dec. 31, 2019. “The original forest order was signed to protect the public from risk of hazard trees, the high potential for debris flow and the risk from rock fall and flooding. New information about hazards in the fire area allowed us to reopen much of the general forest and many recreation sites, although some trails and roads will remain closed as we continue to mitigate hazard trees and do trail inspections,” Kuiken said. “Even though access is being restored, it is vital that people who decide to enter the burned area understand that the forest is significantly changed and is more dangerous than it was before the Donnell Fire.” The forest order and accompanying map can be found at https://go.usa.gov/xUvWQ.
