Box Stores in Angels Camp! ~ Letter to the Editor by Gail & Ted Bunge

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/27/2018 06:04 PM
Angels Camp, CA...Although we live outside of Angels Camp, for close to 40 years we have shopped along the Highway 4 corridor, including in Angels. Angels Camp City Council is considering a zoning change to allow Tractor Supply to build. When we hear people talk about wanting big box stores in our foothill communities, we remind them that most people move to the foothills to live in a rural area. If box stores are important to them, they can live in just about any other city in the country, where they can find all the big stores they want.

Farm Subsidies Make No Sense. By Congressman Tom McClintock

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/26/2018 12:55 PM
Washington, DC...New Zealand is four times more dependent on agriculture than the United States, and it once maintained extensive farm subsidies. In 1984, it ended them. What happened? Farm productivity and earnings rose. The Federated Farmers of New Zealand fought just as vigorously as their American counterparts to preserve their subsidies. Yet in hindsight, the same group now says that its experience “thoroughly debunked the myth that the farming sector cannot prosper without government subsidies.” In fact, it thrives.

Statement on Supervisor Mills Response to Recall Efforts By David "DK" Sweet, Committee to Recall Dennis Mills.

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/11/2018 09:50 AM
Angels Camp, CA...I’ll admit being concerned what will happen when Dennis Mills’ family, close friends, and ardent supporters discover he’s a pathological liar. There are so many lies in Mr. Mills’ statement it's hard to know where to start. Let's try the hilarious "Big Pot" accusation.

Vote for Measure A on June 5th ~ Florence Alberts

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/24/2018 08:54 AM
San Andreas, CA....In 2003, I retired and became a volunteer at Mark Twain Medical Center. I have worked in several departments one or two days a week, six hours a day. On June 5, the voters of Calaveras County have a chance to help our hospital. Vote yes on Measure A. It’s a measure asking voters to approve a new lease between Mark Twain Medical Center and the Mark Twain Health Care District and renew the affiliation with Dignity Health. It does not raise taxes or have any impact on your tax bill. It does not give our hospital to Dignity Health.

Clyde Clapp, Against the Asphalt Plant & Against Pot ~ Bob Vera

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/13/2018 09:41 AM
Rancho Calaveras, CA...I hope the people of District 5 will vote for Clyde Clapp for Supervisor. Clyde has proven himself with his dedication to his District and to the whole County. He was front and center standing up to fight the Asphalt Plant that they tried to shove down our throats. When he saw all of the criminals invading our County to grow Pot he decided to fight against it and he worked to change what the previous Board of Supervisors had created. In less than two years he gained the support to ban the Commercial Pot Grows.

An Endorsement of Pat Garrahan for Sheriff ~ John MacWillie, PhD

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/11/2018 09:02 AM
Murphys, CA...It is the obligation of every government to provide for the public safety and security of its citizens. For local jurisdictions this responsibility includes the provision of law enforcement, fire protection, and health care. In many localities, such as Calaveras County, the only direct input the public has in how these services are delivered is limited to the election of a Sheriff to manage law enforcement.

ATT Stay Off My Phone! ~ Letter To The Editor by Bob Reagan

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/09/2018 02:19 PM
Murphys, CA...Almost every evening at dinnertime we get an unsolicited call call identified as being from ATT. We have call blocking, but it doesn’t work. We have tried everything we can to stop these annoying calls to no avail. When we received a call today I decided to stay on the line and see if I could get some information. I will not bore you with the details, but after posing a number of leading questions this is what I learned.

Letter to the Editor on CCWD Proposed Rate Increases ~ By Bob Vera

Posted by: thepinetree on 04/24/2018 07:07 PM
San Andreas, CA...CCWD talks about their shortfall of $ 700,000.00 in revenue a year because we have conserved due to the drought. I say they are crazy and ignoring the truth, many of us use paper plates to cut back on water use and many of us now only take a couple showers each week because the costs of water and sewer are way too high and out of control.

California Needs Action on Flood Insurance Reforms ~ By Steve Ellis

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/28/2018 02:36 AM
La Grange, CA...The record-breaking floodwaters that recently soaked Tuolumne County should serve as the latest warning that unless Congress reforms and renews the nation’s debt-ridden flood insurance program, more than 238,900 residents across California may be unable to rebuild after the next storm strikes.
