4-H Wants You - To Make The Best Better!

Posted by: Lea_Marie_C_Paar on 07/02/2014 08:59 PM
Calaveras County, Ca...4-H can trace its roots to the early part of last century when County Extension Offices were trying to increase knowledge among local farmers. The County Extension Offices began teaching youth about new and innovative farming practices, hoping their parents would take notice, and they did. Over the years 4-H has evolved to become one of the largest positive youth development programs in the nation. It has grown to offer projects for five to eighteen year olds in pretty much any topic imaginable. Recently Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, and Tuolumne counties pooled their resources to form the state’s first Multi-County Partnership, the UC Cooperative Extension Central Sierra. Together we are working to improve the lives of young people throughout the region, while keeping our county 4-H identities. The Central Sierra 4-H program is looking to build capacity by increasing the amount and types of projects offered to youth in our four counties. Do you have a passion you want to share? Do you love kids? We provide training and support so you wouldn’t be doing this in the dark. We are adding projects in all four counties. Possible projects may include robotics, cultural arts, soap making, entomology, ballroom dancing, and so much more....

Posted by: Lea_Marie_C_Paar on 07/01/2014 01:26 PM
Sutter Creek, CA – In a recent interview with Electronic Products Magazine, local inventor Mike Doherty, president and CEO of EMCO High Voltage Corporation, discusses the creative process of developing an award-winning electronic device. In the article, Doherty explains the importance of removing himself from “the noise and clutter of modern life.” He says, “To create, you have to learn to identify a weak signal among all the noise and focus your efforts on that signal.” After conceiving an idea, Doherty works with EMCO’s engineering team to turn his vision into reality. According to Doherty, the idea behind EMCO’s award-winning AG Series of high voltage power supplies was to deliver high performance in a space-saving package. Under Doherty’s guidance, EMCO continues to develop new high voltage technologies at the company’s facilities in Sutter Creek, California, and Minden, Nevada...
