Tuttletown, CA...From the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Dept..."Search efforts are ongoing for a reported drowning of an adult man that occurred this afternoon on New Melones Lake.

Oh, man - that's exactly where we took one of the party boats last weekend and swam with family. Prayers for a positive outcome and loved ones.

            I remember about fifteen years ago the sheriffs found a dead Russian bound and gagged in Melones.
            Sure enough, they found more Russian bodies over the next few days. Pretty soon the Law was pulling Russians out of the lake one after another.
            They pulled so many Russians out of Melones the Fish and Game department had to put a stop to it. They figgered they already caught their limit.

              OMG. I had nearly forgotten about all the Russian bodies. Thankfully, they've long since disintegrated from fish nibbles and the water itself. These days I tell my grandchildren about the old Gold Rush town of Melones underneath. After a day of fishing and swimming, figure it's less the stuff of nightmares.

              When the lake gets low enough you can see the top of the Trump Hotel Donald built on the bottom. Lots of Russians stay there but occasionally there are big arguments and a few are tied, forced out and drown. The lying fake news won't report this but I got it from Giuliani. He said it's a true truth.

                  To help with the water shortage have Democrats line up on the banks of Melones , with all of their whining and crying it should fill up pretty fast .

                    And also fortunate to have the folks who invested in and keep the marina going. Not many would have taken that chance.

                              If you mean "I agree with Dennis" constitutes principals, you are correct. Otherwise he is an imbecile. Notice he hasn't had much to say lately from the board table? Thats because his puppeteer Mills has instructed him to be quiet, or be exposed as the aforementioned imbecile.

                              Who remembers him blurting out "sign the petition"? Or " I favor number B"?
                              moron, plain and simple.

                              If reelected will lead Calaveras County into the depths of impoverishment.

                              D-5 voters do not fall for this man's pathetic line. You cannot allow him to stay in office. It will contribute to the demise of this county.

                              On November 6th do your part in eliminating the clapp from our counties governing board. Its called voter intelligence, show it D-5.

                    It's an ugly, yuppie magnet man made crap so called lake. Oh its finally accumulated some water now after 15 plus years..not such as eye sore. Friends don't let friends go to new melones. Real locals don't go there. And tell me what do we have back in regards to this carved out watering hole? We don't benefit from it. Take a history lesson. Melones blows.

                        Hey Einstein it's called reading. Hearing is something that can be heard. Now spoken words are heard but not written words. Just a little advice to this idiot in need of a high school education. Maybe grammar school who knows. But hey troll away, melones is a piss poor watering hole. I agree with that one. Any thoughts on drowning yourself for writing such a disgusting disgraceful and childish reply. I know you are but what am I. Grow up loser.

                    He's a dude that shouldn't have gotten into the water. No sympathy, sad but true. It does sucks he drowned in that lake that's for sure. So sympathetic on that I guess.
