Mornings with the One Percent™ Live Weekdays 7-10am, New Stories are Below

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/23/2020 07:02 AM
Arnold, CA…Mornings with the One Percent™ is live weekday mornings from 7-10am. The premise for the show is that the USDA ranked all 3,142 counties or county equivalents in the USA on a livability or desirability scale based on factors such as climate, scenic beauty, bodies of water for recreation, humidity and much more. All of our area ranked not only in the top one percent but in the top one half of one percent. So in the ups and downs of daily life remember you don’t have to be a Gates, Buffett or Bezos to live like the one percent. Just live here!

Make Sender's Ace Hardware Your Christmas Shopping Destination!!

Posted by: News_Desk on 11/22/2020 12:48 PM
Mountain Ranch & Valley Springs, CA...We have lots of new Christmas items and more on the way!!! Before you go shop anywhere else, stop in and see what we have! Chances are we have what you're looking for!! 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.  Click on images below for larger versions

Lindsay is Your Calaveras County Animal Services Pet of the Week

Posted by: News_Desk on 11/22/2020 11:34 AM
San Andreas, CA...Meet Lindsay, a lovely shorthaired dilute Tortie estimated to be about eight years of age. With enormous green eyes and a calm, quiet personality, Lindsay is super cuddly and enjoys being petted and brushed. This sweet girl was found wandering near a busy highway and has a microchip, but her owner cannot be found. Although Lindsay loves people, she does not care for other cats and becomes quite nervous when around them. We feel she would do best where she is the only feline and can be the adored queen of the household.
