04/21/2019 - Railtown 1897 Celebrates Easter with Egg Hunt, Train Rides, Visit by the Easter Bunny & More!
Jamestown, CA...The traditional continues. Railtown 1897 State Historic Park and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation proudly invite families, friends and rail fans from near and far to visit the historic park on Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019. Railtown 1897 SHP offers a memorable place to celebrate the holiday with an egg hunt for children, train rides behind a historic diesel locomotive, hands-on crafts and an opportunity to meet the Easter Bunny, too.



To accommodate the various ages of children, there will be an egg hunt for ages 4 and under, one for ages 5 to 7 and another for ages 8 to 11. With special activities happening all day long, the egg hunt begins at noon and excursion train rides behind 1952 Baldwin Whitcomb No.1265 historic diesel locomotive depart at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Train ride guests enjoy a memorable six-mile, 45-minute round trip ride along the rails of the famous “Movie Railroad.” Excursion train ride tickets for Easter Sunday are available online or at the Depot Store, on a first-come, first-served basis if still available. All train ride tickets include Park admission and cost $15 for adults, $10 for youth ages 6-17 and are free for children five and under.

For more information about special Easter Sunday activities or excursion train rides at Railtown 1897 SHP, please call 209-984-3953 or visit www.railtown1897.org for updated information.
04/13/2019 - Railtown 1897 Offers Wildly Popular Wildflower Trains -- 4/13, 14, 20 & 21!
Jamestown, CA...With an extraordinary spring wildflower season expected this year, California State Parks, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation are proud to provide guests with a unique opportunity to experience spring wildflowers from aboard a historic train. While the Park is open daily, special Wildflower Train Rides are available on two weekends – April 13-14 & 20-21 – and depart from the Depot promptly at 3 p.m. Prior to boarding the train, passengers will have the opportunity to learn about the wildflowers of California’s Sierra Nevada foothills with an informative naturalist presentation at 2:30 p.m.


Railtown 1897 SHP’s popular Wildflower Trains feature naturalists and Interpretive Park Rangers from the nearby Bureau of Reclamation’s New Melones Lake along with interpretive staff from Railtown 1897 SHP, answering questions and pointing out flower groupings along the way. Wildflower Trains take guests on a six-mile, one-hour roundtrip ride through the scenic landscapes of California’s Gold Country. While the abundance of wildflower viewing is dependent on annual rainfall and weather conditions, trains encounter meadows and rolling hills, with such local flora as “meadowfoam,” “goldfields” and other colorful flowers typically in bloom. Train ride guests receive a checklist, wildflower booklet and poppyseed packet, and more.

Popular Wildflower or excursion train ride tickets cost $20 for adults, $14 for youth ages 6-17 and children five and under ride free. With limited open air seating available, train ride tickets are available online in advance at https://railtown1897.org/event/wildflower-trains/ or at the ticket window beginning at 10 a.m. on the day of the ride (based on availability). Tickets include Park admission, capacity is limited, and advance reservations are suggested.

In addition to the special Wildflower Trains in the afternoon, Railtown 1897’s regular excursion trains are operating on these four dates with departures at 10:30 a.m., noon and 1:30 p.m. Regular weekend excursion ride tickets are available online or at the Depot Store, on a first-come, first-served basis. All regular weekend excursion train ride tickets include Park admission and cost $15 for adults, $10 for youth ages 6-17 and are free for children five and under.

The excursion train ride schedule is subject to change with expanded service offered on most holiday weekends. For more information about Railtown 1897 SHP, visitors are encouraged to call 209-984-3953 or visit www.railtown1897.org.

04/09/2019 - Saving Precious Material Will Be The Topic When SMUG Moves Back To Arnold April 9th
Arnold, CA...How to secure your data with a consistent backup program will be explored when the Sierra Macintosh Users Group (SMUG) moves back to its warm-weather location in Arnold for the Tuesday, April 9 meeting that will begin at 7 p.m. in the assembly room of the Ebbetts Pass Fire District, 1037 Blagen Rd., just off Highway 4.


Paul Keaton, SMUG’s Treasurer and Webmaster, will describe the various external hard drives and how to use them to protect your photos, emails, reports and other materials.

“There is nothing more important than making sure your stuff is not lost forever,” says Keaton. “It is not difficult to protect your data. It just takes the right equipment and discipline.”
As always, questions about any Apple products and applications will be welcomed.

SMUG meetings are designed for dues paying members but anyone is welcome to attend to see if they would like to join the group. SMUG was founded in 1995 and is a non-profit organization run completely by volunteers. It meets the second Tuesday of the month, January through November. Annual dues are $20 for an individual or couple payable at the first of the year.

The organization exists to keep Apple users abreast of the latest developments and to address the nagging questions that arise from time to time. Its goal is to take the mystery out of computers and to enable members to take advantage of all the features their Mac products possess.

For more information visit the SMUG website at www.SierraMacintoshUsersGroup.org or call 795-3798 or 728-9012.

04/05/2019 - Community Job Fair Organized by Columbia College and Mother Lode Job Training
Columbia, CA...Columbia College will hold a Community Job Fair that is cosponsored with Mother Lode Job Training. The event will host 66 employers and will take place on Friday, April 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the Columbia College campus in the Oak Pavilion. Job seekers are encouraged to bring their résumé, dress for success, and be ready to discuss their experience and skills with prospective employers at the event.


The event is organized through a partnership with Mother Lode Job Training. Mary Watts, Columbia College Career & Transfer Center Program Technician, shared that area employers are looking for job applicants in many fields including public utilities, forestry, healthcare, education, hospitality management, fire, and administrative support. Employers are looking to hire full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions. “I encourage job seekers to attend to find out about the wonderful opportunities available in our community, network with employers, and practice their “elevator pitch” to employers.”

The event is by far the largest job fair in Calaveras and Tuolumne counties serving local area residents with many small, medium, and large employers attending from throughout the region, including:

Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
CalFire
ATCAA
Tuolumne Utilities District
U.S. Forest Service
Sierra Pacific Industries
California State Parks
Condor Earth Technologies
Adventist Health Sonora
Calaveras Winegrape Alliance
Calaveras County Water District
…and; county, state, and federal government representatives.

The purpose of the event is to connect job seekers at the college, or those in the community, with employers to learn more about the different positions available, make valuable connections, and potentially find employment. Columbia College student Kathy Marquez secured an internship with the U.S. Forest Service after attending the 2018 job fair and said it “will look good on my resume and hopefully be a foot in the door.”

The event will feature eight information session panels on careers in hospitality management, natural resources, law enforcement, health, fire, education, the arts, and the military. The panels will feature industry experts providing valuable information on their profession and how to get a job in that field.

Parking will be relaxed on April 5th, so that attendees will not need to purchase a parking permit the day of the event. Columbia College and Mother Lode Job Training are equal opportunity employers. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request at the event for individuals with disabilities. For more information contact, Mary Watts, Columbia College Career & Transfer Center Program Technician at (209) 588-5273, wattsm@yosemite.edu, visit http://news.gocolumbia.edu/event/career-job-fair/ or https://www.gocolumbia.edu/employment/.
