03/17/2019 - Ride & Walk4Art is a Day of Fun to Support Arts in Education!
San Andreas, CA...Join us for a day of fun to support arts in education! Please join us on March 17, 2019 for Ride & Walk4Art in the beautiful California foothills in West Calaveras County. Choose from 2 bicycle rides—25-miles or 45-miles—or an easy 4.5-mile walk skirting New Hogan Lake. ​Afterwards, the Tri-Dam lions will prepare a Chicken-in-a-Barrel lunch. This is the fourth year the Calaveras County Arts Council has held Ride & Walk4Art. Past participants say that this event is the best local bike and walk event, and serves a sensational lunch along with a friendly community atmosphere.


We're accepting no more than 290 participants—250 cyclists and 40 walkers—making this an intimate ride with a community vibe. You'll traverse rolling California foothills along roads that rarely see cars, past scenic views of oak forests and pastoral meadows and the blue waters of three reservoirs.

Your participation will help raise funds for the Calaveras Arts Council Arts in Education program, a program designed to bring art, music, dance, and theatre to the schools of Calaveras County. In the last two years we have supported watercolor classes, collage instruction, ceramic classes, and school murals. The kids are creative; they are hungry for art. In 2019 the CCAC plans to offer even more art. Simply by having fun, you can help us help the children of Calaveras County.

Registration: January 1-March 15.
​Registration closes at 250 riders and 40 walkers.
Fees: $40 for bicyclists/$50 on day of event
$20/age 16 and under/$30 on day of event
$20 for Walkers
NEW IN 2019!
Two timed climbing challenges
•Hogan Dam, .7 miles and 4.6% grade
•Pardee Dam, .6 miles and 5.8% grade
•Every rider is timed and tracked by satellite!
•Compare your personal best segment performance to others.
•Let friends online follow your ride and progress.
03/09/2019 - First Ever Cajun Festival Slated for San Andreas! Fundraiser benefits Hospice of Amador and Calaver
San Andreas, CA...The first ever Calaveras Ragin’ Cajun Festival will be held 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. March 9, 2019 on the historic downtown streets of San Andreas where almost a half-ton of Louisiana crayfish will be boiled and served up along with live music and several dozen vendors. Members of the San Andreas Rotary Club have been planning this event since late summer. Proceeds will benefit Hospice of Amador and Calaveras, and other Rotary projects.


Festival-goers will find historic Main and Court streets lined with dozens of vendors and three stages of live music. The BluesBox Bayou Band, with members hailing from Sonora and Modesto, will be headlining with their blend of New Orleans, Cajun, Americana and Blues. They claim they “aren’t your grandma’s accordion band.” Regional favorites, the Bob Eisenman Jazz Band and James Harkins, are also scheduled to take the stages throughout the day.

Foodies looking for real Cajun fare will not be disappointed as the Rotarians have contracted with Blake Broussard, a Louisiana native and owner of Ragin’ Cajun Kitchen and Catering Co. out of Modesto. In addition to the 850 pounds of crayfish, Broussard and Rotarians will be serving up Cajun Sausage Po’Boys, deep fried Catfish, deef fried Shrimp and even Cajun Hot Wings prepared by “Lord of the Wings” from Stockton. Taps will be pouring traditional Hurricanes, Bloody Marys, beer, wine and hard ciders.

Tickets are just $5 in advance or $10 at the gate; children five and younger are admitted free. Gate entry fee includes music and access to booths and does not include food and drinks. Tickets may be purchased locally at the Calaveras County Chamber of Commerce and the Pizza Factory in San Andreas. You may also buy tickets online at www.SanAndreasRotary.com/Events. Gate prices are kept low thanks to a generous Platinum sponsorship by Mark Twain Medical Center, George Reed Construction, Inc.,

The San Andreas Rotary Club is getting quite the reputation of putting on great fundraising festivals. Their Calaveras Wine, Cheese and Olive Festival in August 2017 and 2018 were both sold out and a great time was had by all. For the March 9th Calaveras Ragin’ Cajun Festival, they expect more of the same. “Laissez les bon temps rouler!” — Let the good times roll!

02/26/2019 - Next in MTMC ‘A Plan 4 Me’ Series is ‘Focus on Heart Health’ Feb. 26 & Other Events on Heart
San Andreas, CA.... “Focus on Heart Health” is the timely topic for the latest in Mark Twain Medical Center’s “A Plan 4 Me” wellness workshop series. Those attending the Feb. 26 event will learn how to keep their heart healthy; how Mark Twain Medical Center supports local cardiac patients, and what types of minimally invasive surgical techniques are available. This event during American Heart Month will feature medical professionals from the Mark Twain Heart Center, along with General Surgeon Dr. Andrew McCoy, MD. Steve Shetzline, Executive Director of the Murphys Senior Center, who will give an overview of Stay Vertical Calaveras, a free exercise program for seniors sponsored by Mark Twain Health Care District.


Larry Philipp, Interim CEO at MTMC notes, “Heart health is a national focus every year during American Heart Month in February. We’ve planned this workshop to build public awareness on the local level. Every year during February we join forces with Soroptimist International of Calaveras County to provide Free Complete Cholesterol testing for local women. We are excited to see others also joining the effort to raise awareness about heart health in Calaveras County – like the ‘Love Your Heart’ wellness event planned on Feb. 16th at the Copperopolis Branch Library.” (See related story for details.)

“This outreach has had such an impact on the women in Calaveras County, noted Take Women to Heath (TWTH) chairperson and treasurer Billie Westernoff, “Soroptimist International of Calaveras County is very excited and humbled by the fact that our Sister Club in Pesaro Italy has asked us to mentor them so that they can replicate TWTH with a similar program, understanding the fact that women's health issues are worldwide.”

“Focus on Heart Health” begins at 11 a.m. in the MTMC Education Center, with a free lunch to follow. Seating is limited and reservations are required. Reserve now; contact Nicki Stevens, MTMC Manager of Marketing & Business Development, at 754-5919.

Ann Walton, RN, will discuss two topics -- “Be Heart Smart” and “We Are Here to Help” offering prevention tips and
insights into the many ways Heart Center experts can help guide you back to good health if an emergency or lingering condition calls for cardiac care.

Dr. McCoy will “Ease Surgery Fears” by sharing the latest updates on minimally invasive procedures
which improve outcomes and enhance recovery techniques that have improved outcomes for a quicker
recovery.

Shetzline will give an update on Stay Vertical Calaveras, the free exercise program for seniors which
began last fall and currently offers Tai Chi and Strength Building classes in Murphys, Arnold, Angels
Camp, Valley Springs and San Andreas.

“A Plan 4 Me” is an ongoing workshop series focusing on general health awareness and prevention
strategies. When attending their first session participants receive a free “A Plan 4 Me” binder in which to
organize reference materials distributed at each event.

Philipp adds, “We are excited to see such a positive response to these workshops. 50 people attended the
Jan. 11 session featuring Orthopaedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Specialist Dr. Roger Rogalski – a
positive reaction indicating the community is eager to learn more about the timely topics covered at these
events. By taking advantage of ‘A Plan 4 Me,’ you have access to information that can be key to
preventing and identifying health issues, as well as arming you with knowledge to better address
everyday situations.”

County Events Pump Up Awareness About Heart Health
Free Complete Cholesterol Tests for local women and a wellness challenge for Copperopolis residents
will help raise awareness about heart health during American Heart Month in February. In addition, Mark
Twain Medical Center will “Focus on Heart Health” at a Feb. 26 workshop which is the latest in the
ongoing “A Plan 4 Me” workshop series.

American Heart Month was first observed in February 1964, following a Congressional Resolution
signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson on Dec. 30, 1963. It declared, “It is essential to the health and
well-being of our nation that our citizens be made aware of the medical, social, and economic aspects of
the problem of cardiovascular diseases, and the measures being taken to combat them.”

02/09/2019 - William Warren Schmiett Nov. 24, 1952 – Dec. 11, 2018, Bill's Party is Feb. 9 at Noon
Mountain Ranch, CA...William Warren Schmiett Born Nov. 24, 1952—died Dec. 11, 2018. Bill made 66 trips around the sun. A native Californian, Bill was born in Griffith Park in Los Angeles County, and later moved as a young child with his family to Sunnyvale, CA. Bill spent most of his adult life in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Calaveras County. He and his wife moved full time to Mountain Ranch in 2001, were burnt out during the Butte Fire in 2015, and relocated to Mokelumne Hill in 2017. After travelling to Mexico over several years, Bill became enamored with the Mexican people and culture, as well as becoming fluent in Spanish. Bill was creating a lovely retreat home for himself and his wife in El Pescadero, BCS Mexico.


Bill had many careers throughout his life, including being a firefighter with CDF/Cal Fire, USFS, DSL installer, IT computer professional, and carpenter. Most recently he was a real estate broker and owner of Mountain Ranch Realty. Whenever possible he worked as a union steward in his workplace. Bill served on the Board of Directors of Central Calaveras Fire District.

Throughout his adult life Bill was, in his heart, a firefighter. After losing his home in the Butte fire, he chose to stay in Mountain Ranch and assist in any way he could to protect the town and surrounding land. In the aftermath of the fire, he opened his office to the townspeople who had lost homes and needed phone access or a meeting place.

Bill was a pilot, sailor, golfer, enthusiastic skier and hiker of the Sierras, avid reader, writer, pickle ball player, guitar player, (and yes, he had a lovely singing voice) and fabulous cook. He loved baseball, ice hockey, and curling.

He was a conscientious objector during the Vietnam War and performed community service stateside. It was during that service that he began learning to fight fires.

Throughout his life, it was important to Bill to help others, do the right thing—even if it was the more difficult choice— and remain true to himself.

He leaves behind his wife, Julie Shelby, his mother Margery Couls, his brother Doug Schmiett, his sister Gigi Culy, his daughter Kate Schmiett, his son Erik Schmiett and countless friends.

There will be a party for Bill at noon on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Mountain Ranch Town Hall, 8049 Washington Street in Mountain Ranch.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to: Central Calaveras Firefighter Association 19927 Jesus Maria Road, Mokelumne Hill, CA 95245.

For more information regarding the party on Feb. 9 or making donations, contact Julie at 209 419-0028

Proceeds from the event go to benefit Mountain Melody Women's Chorus to help them get to New York City to perform at Carnegie Hall in March of 2019.

Mountain Melody has been asked to join an exclusive international women's choir to perform at this legendary venue, and they are thrilled to be representing the California Gold Country Region. Mountain Melody has been invited by Distinguished Concerts International New York City (DCINY) to participate in this exciting event.

Dr. Jonathan Griffith, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor for DCINY states:

"Mountain Melody received this invitation because of the high quality and high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers as well as the high quality of their audition recording. It is quite an honor just to be invited to perform in New York.
These wonderful musicians not only represent a high quality of music and education, but they also become ambassadors for the entire community. This is an event of extreme pride for everybody and deserving of the community's recognition and support."

There will be 15 singers from the chorus making this trip, many who have been in the chorus since its inception in 2005, under the artistic direction of founder Julia Shelby.
Mountain Melody is looking forward to this event with great anticipation, and as always, we are so grateful for the support we have and will continue to receive.

If you can't make it to Chili Tuesday, but would still like to help Mountain Melody, please go to: www.mountainmelody.org or to their gofundme page:

Catastrophic illness or injury is defined as an illness or injury that is expected to incapacitate an employee or a member of the employee’s family which incapacity requires the employee to take time off from work for an extended period of time to care for that family member, and taking extended time off work creates a financial hardship for the employee because he/she has exhausted all of his/her sick leave and other paid time off (Ed. Code 44043.5). The purpose of the Catastrophic Sick Leave Bank Program is to assist an employee who is suffering through a catastrophic illness through the use of paid leave days donated to the bank by CUSD employees.
The District is requesting Board approval for the use of catastrophic leave for Rhonda Merrill and may direct staff to seek donations of sick leave on her behalf.
