Rabies is a deadly disease caused by a virus. We are living in an area where the rabies virus can be found in wildlife and can be transmitted to your pet and to you though a bite that punctures the skin.

To protect your dog, other pets, yourself and your family, you need to vaccinate your companion. And for the protection of the greater public, the law requires you to vaccinate and license all dogs 4 months of age or older.

Contact Animal Services at 754-6509
For Calaveras County residents only;
All dogs must be on leash and all cats must be in crates.
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Old Timers Museum Walking Tours Are Every Saturday at 10am.
Murphys, CA...Each Saturday morning the Old Timers Museum in Murphys offers a historical walking tour of Murphys. No reservation necessary. Meet at the Museum, 470 Main St, Murphys, across from the Hotel 10 am. Walk is 1-1/12 hours.

A stroll down tree-lined Main Street transports visitors back to the mid-1800s with buildings bearing thick stone walls, iron shutters and pastoral gardens with white picket fences. Once you experience the charm and hospitality of Murphys, the historic “Queen of the Sierra”, you’ll want to come back again and again!

Rich in Gold Rush History, Murphys today is a vibrant, thriving community of over 2,000 residents. Many of the surrounding hillsides are rich with the fine wine grapes grown in our area. Murphys offers wineries, art galleries, live theater, eclectic shops, fine restaurants, charming hotels and B&B’s as well as a multitude of outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

Murphys’ colorful past came alive in 1848 when John and Daniel Murphy established a trading post and gold mining operation in the area that is now their namesake. True entrepreneurs with the luck of the Irish, they were a part of the very first immigrant party – the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy families – to successfully bring wagons over the Sierra in 1844, paving the way for westward migration. John and Daniel’s cries of “Gold!” were among the first heard in California. It is reported that the brothers took two million dollars in gold ore from the Murphys Diggins in one year’s time, making them millionaires before the age of 25. The sizzling Gold Rush camp of Murphys also played host to President Grant, Mark Twain and Black Bart. And in some circles, to an even more famous chap – a young, inquisitive lad who literally changed the scientific world, Dr. Albert Michelson.

Our friendly residents invite you to revisit the past while exploring the “new” upscale Murphys. Guided walking tours of the town’s many historic buildings including the home of Albert Michelson, the first American Nobel Prize winner, are conducted every Saturday at 10:00 a.m., starting in front of the Old Timers Museum on Main Street.

05:30 PM - 08:30 PM Artist Reception for Staria Stine on October 27th at nd&x,
Murphys, CA...The nd&x is so pleased to be hosting another fresh innovative solo show featuring the works of super talented local artist Staria Stine. Staria is driven by her curiosity and passion for the natural environment and her interest in our complex relationship with Nature both presently, as well as over the course of human history is evident in her latest endeavor. In this body of work Staria is focusing on the topic of genetically modified organics.

(GMOs) and how they have been incorporated into our contemporary applications. Genetica modification is a forced process, and perhaps one that the natural world might inevitably reject, potentially leading us down the road to monoculture systems and that of collapse. Therefore, this raises the question of our ethical responsibilities, pointing to our future societal costs. Working closely with plants and the complex information systems found within their structures, this body of work calls attention to the precise, delicate and highly-informed design of edible plants and other organics.

Please come to the opening to meet Staria and experience the beautiful, colorful, thought provoking applications all together in the same space for maximum impact of this gorgeous body of work.

This is our 5th show of 2018. Please don’t miss it. Wine & nibbles provided.

Hope to see you there!

Cheers and of course...Peace,

Jill & Linda
