Murphys, CA...The next town hall meeting for the State of Jefferson, is Monday, November 30, at the Native Sons Hall, Main Street in Murphy's. The meeting is free to the public and begins at 6 pm. Speaker for the event is Steve Baird, the chief architect of the financial model for the future state. Two weeks ago, approximately 200 residents attended a town hall in Sutter Creek, and in October, well over 100 attended a meeting in San Andreas. Committees have now been formed in Amador, Calveras and Tuolumne Counties, where more and more, you will see Jefferson flags waving in the breeze.
Angels Camp, CA...A $100,000 donation from the Amador Community Foundation (ACF) to the Calaveras Community Foundation’s (CCF’s) Disaster Relief Fund is a prime example of how the response to the devastation of the Butte Fire has fostered increased cooperation between the diverse organizations of the Motherlode. “We are very gratified, and frankly a little surprised, at the number of individuals, businesses, and non-profit organizations that have used our fund to channel their efforts to respond to the needs of the people who have suffered and to mitigate the effects of the fire,” says Brent Harrington, CCF Treasurer. “We feel confident that the relationships established, and enhanced, will be a benefit for our area in the years to come.”
Donations may be sent to the Foundation at PO Box 1436, Angels Camp, 95222, or by using the PayPal button on its website: www.calaverascommunityfoundation.org. Please indicate “DRF” on your checks or in the PayPal comment box. For further information, call the Foundation Office at 209/736-1845.

Medal of Honor Presentation to Captain Florent Groberg, United States Army
Posted by: thepinetree on 11/12/2015 01:53 PM
Washington, DC.... THE PRESIDENT: Good morning, and welcome to the White House. A little more than three years ago, as Captain Florent Groberg was recovering from his wounds as a consequence of the actions that we honor today, he woke up on a hospital bed, in a little bit of a haze. He wasn’t sure, but he thought he was in Germany, and someone was at his bedside talking to him. He thought it was the lead singer from the heavy metal band Korn. (Laughter.) Flo thought, “What’s going on? Am I hallucinating?” But he wasn’t. It was all real.
