Lets Be Civil Down The Stretch.

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/20/2018 08:10 PM
Arnold, CA....We had to disable commenting on most of the posts on the front page as this morning as they were beyond being able to clean them up in a timely manner. General rules are elected officials and those seeking office have voluntarily placed themselves in the public square. Private citizens have not. Please do not use names or post details on private citizens. We know people care deeply about politics but lets all remember that it is our friends and neighbors that are running for office and trying to serve their communities. This includes those accused but not convicted of crimes. People have to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. All we ask is that you be civil, refrain from profanity, try to improve and and not needlessly trash your community.

President Trump at Signing of Presidential Memorandum to Promote the Reliable Supply and Delivery of Water in the West

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/20/2018 05:49 PM
Scottsdale, AZ...So this is a big day for the Central Valley, California. And I want to thank everybody for being here. This is a vital action. In my opinion, it’s vital to improve access to water in the American West. What’s happened there is disgraceful. They’ve taken it away. There’s so much water, they don’t know what to do with it, and they send it out to sea. For decades, burdensome federal regulations have made it extremely difficult and expensive to build and maintain federal water projects. You all know about that.

Rambunctious & Ewephoric Specials From Black Sheep Winery

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/19/2018 03:57 PM
Murphys, CA...This is an update we like to post. Their previous special was so successful that is sold out. A new and updated special is below. Black Sheep Winery arrived in Murphys with the 1984 harvest. From that first harvest we produced our 1984 Amador Zinfandel. The wine was styled in a big, bold way like nobody else could do. That's what makes us Black Sheep; we're different from the rest of the flock. We feature small batches of limited release wines handcrafted from high quality grapes grown in Calaveras and Amador Counties. We produce about 2,500 cases of wine per year, specializing in Zinfandels and Rhone varietals.

Calaveras Big Trees State Park Officially Reopens the Three Senses Trail

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/19/2018 11:31 AM
Arnold, CA...This past Saturday at Calaveras Big Trees State Park, California State Parks and partners reopened the Three Senses Trail during a re-commissioning ceremony. Ryder Sitch and his mother Yvonne cut the ribbon to reopen the trail. Ryder, who is visually impaired, helped with the trail development and interpretive components. Initially referred to as the “Braille Trail,” the trail was created in 1974 for blind and visually impaired visitors to fully experience the Giant Sequoia forest and became a popular teaching trail for children’s school tours. During the past four months, State Parks along with the Arnold Lions Club and the Calaveras Big Trees Association (CBTA) revamped the trail to improve access for visitors.
