Supervisors to Consider "Dig Once" Street Trenching & Pavement Policy

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/24/2019 11:43 AM
San Andreas, CA....The public right-of-way is a unique public resource held in trust for the benefit of the public. This resource requires proper management to maximize its efficiency and longevity. As stewards of this public facility, Public Works constantly balances meager resources to forestall the deterioration of our roadways and recognize that deteriorated roads lead to increased costs to our taxpayers. In addition to our efforts to maintain our roadways, we minimize the inconvenience to and negative effects on the public from the use of the public right-of-way by contractors and utility companies through our standards and permitting process.

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.

USDA Announces Support for Farmers Impacted by Retaliation and Trade Disruption

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/23/2019 10:44 AM
Washington, D.C....U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will take several actions to assist farmers in response to trade damage from unjustified retaliation and trade disruption. President Trump directed Secretary Perdue to craft a relief strategy to support American agricultural producers while the Administration continues to work on free, fair, and reciprocal trade deals to open more markets in the long run to help American farmers compete globally. Specifically, the President has authorized USDA to provide up to $16 billion in programs, which is in line with the estimated impacts of unjustified retaliatory tariffs on U.S. agricultural goods and other trade disruptions. These programs will assist agricultural producers while President Trump works to address long-standing market access barriers.

U.S. Attorney Announces Indictment Of Michael Avenatti For Aggravated Identity Theft, Engaging In A Scheme To Defraud Stormy Daniels

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/22/2019 04:34 PM

Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), announced the indictment today of MICHAEL AVENATTI on fraud and aggravated identity theft charges.

President Trump on Meeting with Democratic Leadership

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/22/2019 04:18 PM
Washington, DC...Thank you very much. Good morning. So I came here to do a meeting on infrastructure with Democrats, not really thinking they wanted to do infrastructure or anything else, other than investigate. And I just saw that Nancy Pelosi, just before our meeting, made a statement that “We believe that the President of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.” Well, it turns out I’m the most — and I think most of you would agree to this — I’m the most transparent President, probably in the history of this country. We have given — on a witch hunt, on a hoax — the whole thing with Russia was a hoax, as it relates to the Trump administration and myself. It was a total horrible thing that happened to our country. It hurt us in so many ways.
