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.

Dear California Students, Parents & Faculty ~ Letter to the Editor by Dave & Melissa Wagner

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/11/2018 12:38 PM
Arnold, CA...Your Governor has advertised to every mass shooter out there that California schools are now a soft target that will offer no armed resistance to a shooter going for a high body count. He has “outlawed” the right of licensed carry and responsible defensive firearm possession on school campuses (Penal Code 626.9-11). That means that even those parents or staff that you might not even know about who are trained, qualified, and licensed to discreetly carry a weapon are no longer able to protect you at school, or even near school. Sorry.

Is it Time to Revisit O'Connor v. Donaldson the Supreme Court Decision That Effectively Ended Mental Hospitals

Posted by: thepinetree on 02/15/2018 06:22 PM
Washington, DC...In wake of the Florida school shooting that was allegedly committed by a young man that many people knew ahead of time had some very disturbing tendencies is it time to revisit how we treat the mentally ill or potentially mentally ill?  The Florida School Shooting, Texas Church Massacre, Sandy Hook and many more were carried out by those with known mental issues.  O'Connor v. Donaldson was the 1975 Supreme Court case that effectively ended the era of state mental hospitals.  While that decision was laudable for many, many reasons it has also led to an era of epidemic homelessness, mass shootings and rising suicide rates. We have effectively made our streets and communities open air mental hospitals.
