Grab Your Rakes & Pitchforks & Head To White Pines Park

Arnold, CA...Today is the Annual Park Clean Up Day at White Pines Park. One of the great things about our small communities that many who visit do not know is that many of our attractions are run by volunteers. White Pines Park is no different there is a dedicated group that keeps this venue functioning. Our community owes them a debt of gratitude. They are also working hard to keep the pressure on our local government to make repairs to Blagen Road in time for the peak summer season. The county had hoped to have a temporary bridge in place to restore access to the beach parking lot, ball fields & Moose by May 1st. That date has slipped as the county says they need emergency funding to pay for the bridge. They park is and will be open for summer use but until bridge repairs are made access to some areas will take a bit of legwork. A sign was recently donated to direct inquiries about the road repairs to the County Supervisor who's district covers White Pines Park. The calls were previously going to the home of one of the volunteers.





The temporary bridge has a price tag of about $75,000 and the county already has a vendor lined up. The bridge could also be built locally as well.

The White Pines Park Committee takes great pride in the park and what they have helped build and maintain. They are always open and welcoming to new volunteers and support from the community.

The word around Arnold is that Emerson excavating offered to get this job done, and was refused! Now I don't know if this is true, but he, Mr. Emerson was going to get the job done in about 2 weeks, at a fraction of the estimated cost that was on the Pine Tree about a month ago! If so, as unusual, the government is once again holding things up, would that surprise anyone? Before it is over, Fish and Game, Hillary, Bernie, Bill, F Chuck Shumer, Harry Reid, Diane Frankenstein, Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Brown, gay wad Gavin Newsome, and I' m sure everything other Progressive will have to weigh in on this project, completion date, somewhere in the next century! Get it morons?

    I'd hate to break it to you but before you go on an anti liberal rant, this county is mostly ran by conservatives. So you should blame them. I know facts, research and reality are just as scary as those brown foreigners, but your butt hurt needs to be directed somewhere else partner.

    That's Calaveras County property? Where workers go in and out all day long? Where they keep their backhoes and loaders and "work" trucks? Where the guys drive over the bridge everyday, multiple times daily? And not one fat azz got out and cleaned out the twigs, leafs and branches that they have seen there all year long? Is that the bridge that washed out? Wow, give Calaveras County workers there a high five for going beyond the call of duty...oh wait, they didn't do anything at all. Does that sound about right? Go figure.
    WTG To the Calaveras County workers there, your laziness cost the county big time. Good job boys. Nothing like job security, I hope you all are embarrassed of your laziness to get out of your trucks or off your equipment to do your job, and at the entrance to your OWN YARD to boot. GREAT JOB

      I'm sorry, that was mean and I can't delete my post. I hope the twigs and branches is not what was the problem, after all we had a great deal of rain.
      But if it was because of the culvert was clogged.... expensive lesson to learn, that the taxpayers have to pay for. Your black eye goes unnoticed and it's just another day for you while the community that lives there and the tourist pays the price.

The county has already cost the community more economically than the cost of the bridge! Fixing problems like this is what county governments are for. The private sector would have had this fixed months ago.

    This road may be important for the economy of the businesses in the Arnold area, but there are also many other county roads that are important for general transportation...getting people to work and schools etc, that are in need of repair and they would be considered higher priority for the funds available. That is the issue, money as well as time to get all the many repairs done

      Of course but by not fixing the ones that provide direct economic benefit you make all of the problems worse. Kinda simple math.

      Lets say this was the City of Anaheim where the bulk of their revenue comes from Disneyland. If you kill the tourism economy you kill the jobs. So fixing road first in a neighborhood makes no sense if their job was a Disneyland.

      Of if you were in an accident and you have a broken arm and a slashed artery. You fix the artery first because if the patient bleeds out who cares about the arm.

          Maybe if those old farts walked into the Moose bar and out again it would benefit their health. It is a private club, not a public business.
