A Letter To The Editor In Regards To Sarah Palin~ By R Douglas Nunes

Posted by: News_Desk on 12/01/2016 09:21 AM
Arnold, CA...Letter To The Editor- I was disappointed when Trump won the election, I felt we had no “good” choices but Trump seemed the worst. Now he is proving that he is not competent to be President, by his choices for cabinet seats.

DAPL Violates First American Rights~ A Letter To The Editor By Samantha Smith

Posted by: News_Desk on 11/19/2016 06:34 AM
Angels Camp, CA...The United States has broken over 500 agreements between the government and First Americans, according to NPR. Currently, in North Dakota on the Sioux reservation, the Laramie Treaty of 1851 is being violated. The land dedicated to the Indigenous people, as a result of this violation, is being desecrated by a large oil company, called Energy Transfer. This is patently illegal. "Tensions have escalated …, with local security forces employing an increasingly militarized response to protests and forcibly moving encampments located near the construction site," said Maina Kaia, the UN Special Rapporteur concerning the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and association. The United States must honor it’s treaties.

Support Steve Kearney~ A Letter To The Editor By Rex Whisnand

Posted by: News_Desk on 10/31/2016 04:37 PM
Calaveras County, CA...This letter is in support of Supervisor Steve Kearney, because of his tremendous contributions to Calaveras County. I have had the opportunity to work with him through the Commission on Aging for Calaveras County and I have found him to be a hard worker, with a big heart and with a strong background in helping people throughout the County on many tough issues.

Proposition 64 Endangers California Water Supply ~ Letter To The Editor By Donnasue Jacobi

Posted by: News_Desk on 10/21/2016 05:27 PM
San Andreas, CA...Dear Editor, I have something to say about the Proposition 64 Marijuana prop that’s on the ballot and as a Butte Fire survivor from this past summer, I am very concerned that NO ONE has addressed the issue of water resources in the Sierra Foothills where a great deal of it is grown. Where are the feasibility reports about the devastation to our water resources?

"Should Kearney Get The Boot?," A Column By Roy Estakhri

Posted by: News_Desk on 10/18/2016 03:38 PM
Calaveras County, CA...For some people giving Kearney the boot is a no brainier, they feel as if they were bartered or disenfranchised and, no debate is necessary “he needs to go” That may be very correct. I think the frustration with district 5 voters (Me being one of them) are warranted, mistakes have been made. But who made them? Mr. Kearney stated “wants and wishes’ of a select few should outweigh the ‘needs and wishes’ of the many in Calaveras County” Do you believe that? This statement that Mr. Kearney made I think is a window into a greater problem that goes beyond just our little community and, Kearney is just a small part of the greatest problem of all (US) the voters, the people, the citizens. Sounds crazy but bear with me a moment as I give you my break down of the craziness.

My Two Cents, For What It's Worth! ~ Letter To The Editor By Doug Shinn

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/12/2016 10:16 AM
Arnold, CA...Thank you Merita, Barden and others for bringing Measure D forward. Both D and C may seem complicated. However when you boil this down it's quite simple and does make good sense. This is written in order to give our County command, control and income over a defined land use, the cultivation of cannabis. And if State prop 64 passes that will allow personal use (and polls say it will) then it becomes even more imperative to be ahead of the curve. A yes vote does not mean you condone, promote or use cannabis for any reason, medical or personal. It just means that you recognize the reality that it's here and should be controlled and taxed. Like any other land use.

Planning Director On Cannabis Database

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/30/2016 04:42 PM
San Andreas, CA...A great deal of controversy has arisen with the decision by the Calaveras Enterprise to publish the location of cannabis cultivation registration sites in the county. The Enterprise and many others submitted Public Records Act requests to review the files shortly after the close of the initial filing deadline of June 30th. Due to sensitive medical and personal identification information in the files, we refused access to the files, but the County has a legal responsibility to provide public records. We informed the requestors that once a database containing the information was developed, redacting medical and other sensitive information, we would provide that to them in-lieu of releasing the files for review.

Tips On Disaster Preparedness Month From Peggy Rourke-Nichols

Posted by: News_Desk on 09/23/2016 05:46 PM
Calaveras County, CA...Dear Editor, September is Emergency Preparedness Month. I usually do presentations in our community but I have to try another way this year. I have been teaching emergency preparedness since 1984. I am glad I can continue to do so, just in a different way. Our community faces wild fires,winter storms, flooding and power outages.

CCWD Isn’t Letting Its Guard Down On Conservation ~ Guest Opinion Part Two By Terry Strange

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/12/2016 01:52 PM
San Andreas, CA....We just endured a four-year drought that was so severe, scientists had to go back more than a thousand years in tree ring records to find its equal. While the 2012-2015 dry spell may have been interrupted by a near-average winter in 2015-2016, and some reservoir levels have increased significantly, that doesn’t mean the state of California is out of the drought. And that’s why, even with our own drought-resilient water supply, the Calaveras County Water District is not letting its guard down when it comes to conservation.
