Letter to the Editor~by Al Segalla

Posted by: Kim_Hamilton on 09/29/2014 05:28 PM
Dear Members and Community Leaders,

In times of water shortage with rationing, it does not make sense to drain the remaining water in our reservoirs to save fish downstream. In fact, experts note that lowering the water level can cause an increase in temperature that will potentially be harmful to juvenile fish. The plan to release water will be very hurtful to the people and especially the farmers, to say nothing about our local economy....

Dear Editor, If you care about Ebbetts Pass, Calaveras District 3 you need to read this. I have had to make a tough decision about the November 4, 2014 election. What needs to happen is to elect a Supervisor FOR the people who live and work in Ebbetts Pass and Murphys. After much contemplation about who would be best to lead District 3 as Supervisor, I have come to a decision which may surprise some of you....

Keep the Mokelumne River from State Control ~ Letter To The Editor From Vicky Reinke

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/15/2014 12:13 PM
Angels Camp, CA....The Democrats and environmental groups are on their way to designating 37 miles of the Mokelumne River as “Wild and Scenic” What does it mean to be designated “Wild and Scenic”? It means that the river must remain free-flowing without artificial impoundment, diversion, or other modification of the river. In other words, the water in that portion of the river cannot be diverted for the use of the people and farmers, now and in the future. Any future water use will be controlled by the State....

Public Input Needed for Pine Grove Dollar General Project

Posted by: Lea_Marie_C_Paar on 07/14/2014 11:46 PM
Pine Grove, Ca...I am writing to express my disappointment with the scheduled Pine Grove Dollar General store project. For many reasons, I feel there needs to be public input on this project. I have strong concerns over the "Negative Declarations" status regarding the approval of the Environmental Impact Report and the ommission of public review originally. The zoning and EIR were granted over 20 years ago and they need to be revisited. While concerned community residents and business people seek legal counsel and a Injunction to delay the project, I am hoping county officials will see fit to grant this themselves.. There is no reason to bring a box store such as Dollar General to our community, which holds "community concepts" dearly. We don't want our local retailers to suffer, not do we look forward to employment lay offs and hours cut when those stores begin to feel the presence of Dollar General. Those employees will not be hired by Dollar General, as they historically only hire 4-6 part time employees and a manager. We don't need more unemployment in Amador!...

Letter To The Editor On Grant Barrett ~ By Gary Stevens

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/03/2014 08:36 AM
San Andreaa, CA...I would like to take this opportunity to encourage voters in Calaveras County to vote for Grant Barrett for Judge of the Superior Court, Dept 1. on June 3rd. Grant Barrett has been presiding over cases for more than ten years; divorce cases, settlement conferences, child custody and support, traffic, criminal and civil lawsuit as the judge. Grant was hired by Judge Mewhinney and Judge Martin as the research attorney for the courts. Not long after, Grant was hired as the judge pro-tem, and then as the court commissioner where he currently hears and decides cases. Additionally, Grant remains the court research attorney, which means he provides legal assistance and case law research to the judges in all complicated cases.

Yorkie that was taken by a coyote just a year ago in his front yard. You may ask, as we did, What can a person's love for their pet create? How can the love we have for our little Rosoce Man have an impact for shelter animals in our county right now? Lots we'll tell you! Don't ever think that your love for your pet is silly or insignificant. Through their existence our hearts open on levels we may not have otherwise experienced in our lifetime without them. That opening can have a profound effect on our future and benefit the future of our shelter animals. Here is a brief story that we hope will touch and inspire you...

San Andreas, CA...District 5 and District 3 citizens, taxpayers and voters, another Government Code Section 54950, Brown Act Violation and 3.95 million
reasons not to re-elect Darren Spellman (D-5) and Merita Callaway (D-3).

The California Land Conservation Act (Williamson Act) was on the agenda. An issue that was not properly dealt with in 2009 was part of the presentation....

Sorry I didn't make you a sign today, but please know you were on my mind & we appreciate what you do for us! MD - USFS Firefighter
