05/15/2018 - Meet Sarah LaPlante, Mi-Wok and Summit District Ranger
Sonora, CA...LaPlante and Forest Supervisor Jason Kuiken will discuss Mi-Wok and Summit ranger district operations May 15, beginning at 5 p.m. at the Mi-Wok Ranger District office conference room. Residents are invited to meet LaPlante, who recently became the ranger for both 108 corridor districts, to discuss issues impacting their communities. The Mi-Wok Ranger District Office is located at 24695 Highway 108, Mi-Wuk Village, CA.


“We decided to have one ranger supervising both districts on Highway 108 and residents may have some questions about how services will be managed,” Kuiken said. “This is a chance to come ask questions of me, as well as of the districts’ ranger and her staff.”

LaPlante has worked for the U.S. Forest Service for more than 10 years, most recently as deputy district ranger for the High Sierra Ranger District on the Sierra National Forest. She worked with the National Roundtables for Sustainable Forests in Washington D.C., and spent five years managing recreation, wilderness, and special uses in her home state of New Hampshire. Since 2014 she worked on the Sierra National Forest, where in addition to providing district leadership, she was the primary Forest Service representative with the Dinkey Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Project. The group consists of stakeholders representing diverse public, private, local and state government, and tribal interests, and has had great success finding common ground to plan forest restoration projects.

“Collaborative groups like Dinkey are vital to our forest’s success,” Kuiken said. “Her experience in groups like this will help us plan and complete restoration work together with our partners.” LaPlante also brings multiple years of experience working in a forest heavily impacted by tree mortality. “We’re excited that she arrived ready to hit the ground running.”

04/03/2018 - The 2018 Greater Arnold Candidates Night is April 3rd
Arnold, CA...The 2018 Greater Arnold Candidates Night featuring those vying for County Sheriff & District 3 Supervisor is Tuesday April 3 at Sequoia Woods Country Club. The Schedule is: 5:00 to 6:00 PM: Meet & Greet Mixer in Lounge. 6:00 to 8:30 PM: Candidates Q&A Session in Ponderosa Room. 8:30 to 9:00 PM: Informal Conversations with Candidates. This event is for local voters who want to hear firsthand the candidates' positions on important issues. Taking questions from the floor is a time-consuming and logistically-challenged process, so instead, voters are asked to submit questions for the candidates to WeVote@ComeToArnold.com.


Time will be limited and it will not be possible to present the candidates with all questions received, so please follow these guidelines:
• USE THE SUBJECT LINE to help us categorize your question. As an example, "Neighborhood Watch" or "Snow Removal."
• THE SUBJECT SHOULD BE PERTINENT to the greater Arnold area, District Three (Vallecito to the Alpine County line) or all of Calaveras County.
• QUESTIONS SHOULD BE GENERAL, NOT PERSONAL, as all candidates will be responding to the same questions.
• Inquiries should be about MATTERS AFFECTING MOST CONSTITUENTS as opposed to minor or one-off concerns. • If you have MORE THAN ONE QUESTION, send one email for each. • You must INCLUDE YOUR NAME, just as you would identify yourself if asking a question at the event.

Questions must be received before April 2. Those with subjects most frequently-asked will be among those posed to the candidates at the event and not before. The remaining questions will be published at Candidates Night.
