Editor: "What is wrong with the Calaveras General Plan Update process? I suspect that the San Andreas fault (pun intended) lies not with the county staff but with the planning profession and some self-enamored citizens who have an idealistic but impractical vision of forest primeval and grand vistas of bucolic wildlife, all under their wise supervision. Planners have degrees in planning and public administration, but is Agenda 21 the mantra of this profession? Think Smart Growth, New Urbanism, and total government control of your property....

Letter to the Editor....Re: Calaveras County Chamber of Commerce Support of Trinitas~By Calaveras Chamber of Commerce

Re: Calaveras County Chamber of Commerce Support of Trinitas..."The Calaveras County Chamber of Commerce is a force for good, providing our membership, county government and community with many positive promotions. We have sponsored, and continue to sponsor, Candidates’ Nights, the Economic Summit, Bridal Faire, Home & Garden Show, Night of the American Cowboy, Leadership Training, Frogtoberfest and many other events.

"Dear Editor, In reference to the Calaveras County General Plan Update, I think there are plenty of differing opinions on how the County should develop. Many of us seem to share the vision that it is possible and important to protect, preserve and restore our free society. This may be why our Constitution seems so important today. “Visioning”, as exercised in the CEQA process, seems to involve an emotional and motivating exercise whereby participants envision how other people’s property should be used or not used over time. .....

"In the course of my campaign for Auditor-Controller of Calaveras County, I have been investigation Government Waist in Calaveras County. During this time I came across information Regarding Coroner Kevin Raggio that I turned over to the press for investigation. I gave them what limited information I had, and told them that there was a possible story. As part of this investigation, I reviewed the mid year Calaveras County Financial Shortfall. This began on March 5, 2010 with a review....

Letter To The Editor On Raggio Comments ~ From Shaelyn Strattan

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/25/2010 12:56 PM
Letter to the Editor...The Pinetree has provided a very valuable service to the citizens of Calaveras County, an open forum to exchange ideas, vent our frustrations, and challenge our representatives. However, that service is being degraded by a small number of bloggers whose primary mission in life seems to be to personally attack those they don’t like or with whom they disagree. I am speaking specifically about the unwarranted and vicious personal attacks on Kevin Raggio in a current article on The Pinetree. Kevin is an elected official and, as such, needs to be held to the highest standards of his office and the people he was elected to serve. If there are allegations that he acted in an inappropriate or illegal manner, they should be fairly and completely investigated, and the results of those investigations made known. Until such time as he is charged with a crime or the allegations are proven, it is incumbent on us, as citizens of this community, to act in a civilized and responsible manner. It is reprehensible that, instead, a number of people find it necessary to personally vilify Mr. Raggio, based on rumor, conjecture, and their so-called “knowledge of the truth”....

Dear Editor, On behalf of the Calaveras Planning Coalition (CPC), thank you to everyone who has constructively participated in the General Plan Update (GPU) thus far, including our communities, our Supervisors, County Planning Staff, the consultants, and all stakeholders. The CPC supports Alternative Map B as the best expression of the Coalition’s desire to reduce the cost of public infrastructure and services, to provide for economic growth, to maintain the integrity of existing communities, to sustain the productivity of working landscapes, and to preserve our rural character, which is so highly prized by residents and tourists alike. ....

"Editor: After observing the first planning workshop in Murphys I am more convinced than ever that the Calaveras Board of Supervisors must act now to terminate the contract with Mintier Harnish and end this monkey motion. Since 1916 in New York when the first zoning ordinance was passed it was obvious that zoning ordinances were not perfect. Sometimes requirements cannot be met and best use of land languishes because of a parcel’s peculiarities or un-anticipated changes in the neighborhood, the economy or demographics. Therefore, flexibility is needed in the zoning laws. Complex rules and rigid enforcement cause economic stagnation and unnecessary hardship on property owners and with no benefit to society whatsoever.....

Letter to the Editor~by Penny Sarvis of The Community Action Project

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/09/2010 12:57 PM
"Editor: Just over four years ago, the Community Action Project began advocating for a comprehensive update of the County's General Plan with broad based and meaningful public participation in the process. Back then, the County was buried under by applications for large residential development projects. The County General Plan – which is still in effect until a new one is approved - was based on land use projections dating from 1985. It was and is not useful as a tool for planning growth. When the County hired Mintier and Associates to analyze the General Plan from a legal standpoint, they determined that it is internally inconsistent, incomplete, and “not useful.” It is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Yet, this was the document available to guide Calaveras County while its population nearly doubled in the last ten years.....
