Thank You To PG&E, CalTrans & Municipal Workers ~ By Molly Day

Posted by: thepinetree on 12/08/2013 10:04 AM
THANK YOU PG&E, CalTrans, all City & County workers for always getting out in the most miserable of conditions to keep my convenient life chugging along. Long hours, crap conditions, not to mention an absolute risk to yourselves while your loved ones wait at home worried. It's not much different than what we do except I have never seen signs all over town telling you THANK YOU!! 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

Calaveras Community Band votes to donate Fall Concert proceeds to Rosendo Rojas' medical expenses! ~A Mother's Letter By Karen Rojas

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/02/2013 10:43 AM
Angels Camp, CA...Dear Friends, As many of you may know, Mic Harper, band director, was instrumental (no pun intended!) in starting Rosendo's musical "career" way back in the 4th grade - little "recorders", flutes - at Michelson Elementary School. She then invited him to play on some drums at a small school performance, and that was the real beginning. Rosendo had a natural musical talent - the Rojas bloodline, not mine! - and Mic helped to nurture and encourage that. When he was in sixth grade up at Avery Middle School, she asked him to start participating in what was then the Calaveras County Community Band, and he attended Monday evening rehearsals and performances as often as he could. He joined the Avery Band, which was a class taught by Mic, and went on to attend music and band classes at Bret Harte High School under the direction of Dave Allured for four years...

Obama Care & The Government Shutdown. ~Letter To The Editor by Al Segalla

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/10/2013 12:25 PM
Copperopolis, CA...Dear Editor, "Obama Care" seems to be a hot button issue with lots and lots of provocative slogans. I may be wrong, but the following appears to be true regarding the slow down. It is not a shut down because 83% of the federal government is still functioning...

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/07/2013 08:45 AM
Calaveras County, CA..I'm a 90 year old USMC WWII 100% disabled purple heart w/ a bronze star veteran who owns a cabin that I built with my brother back in 1965.

Signing Anniversary of the U.S. Constitution ~By Al Segalla

Posted by: John_Hamilton on 09/17/2013 11:18 PM
Copperopolis, CA..Today, September 17, is the 226th Anniversary of the historical signing of the U.S. Constitution. I think, if we would but follow the constitution, most of our problems would disappear and our children could look forward to living in a free and prosperous county. Here is what the father of our country had to say about this document: "I consider myself honored to have presided over the Constitutional Convention that conceived of this document. It took several months and was the subject of much debate until, I believe, with the help of the Almighty, it came together in its final form. I venture to say that this document described a unique form of government unlike any other heretofore experienced, respecting the freedom and rights of the individual....

Letter to the Editor ~ By Dale Paar

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/22/2013 11:38 PM
Murphys, CA... My daughter told me the best sound bite she's ever seen from a food critic was “music in your mouth”. Well, in that case I experienced a symphony in my mouth at Lorrucio's Sicilian Cuisine in Murphys, CA, last night. I am no food critic but I feel compelled to tell everyone what I found that delighted me so much (and I'm not that easily delighted!)....

69% and 62% Rate Increase - Is CCWD Serious? ~Letter To The Editor by Bertha Underhill

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/09/2013 08:21 AM
Camp Connell, CA...The most important meeting to attend this year is the Calaveras County Water District Rate Hearing for the Proposed Rate Increase of 69% for water and 62% for wastewater over the next five years. It will be held Wednesday, July 10, 2013 at the CCWD Board Room, 423 East St. Charles St., in San Andreas at 9 am. This Public Hearing will determine if the CCWD Directors will burden the CCWD customers with the most outrageous Rate Increase in the history of CCWD. For 45 days, CCWD has attempted to pull this ill-conceived plan, citing infrastructure repair and capital improvements, over the eyes of the ratepayers, all over the County,...

Letter to CCWD Board ~ Letter to the Editor by Robert Watson

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/05/2013 06:13 PM
Vallecito, CA... I am a property owner in Vallecito (20 years) and have some comments re the increase in rates. Prior lawsuit. Prior boards loss $900,000 in a lawsuit (Mid 90's)that should have never gone to trial. The suing party had been on the Water Board. Shows that the Board has made bad decisions in the past and seems to continue to do so. Salaries: Most recent GM salary was around $200,000. Way out of line for the job. What justifies a salary at that level for a small water company...

Time to come clean ~Letter to the editor by Dennis Mills

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/27/2013 02:10 PM
Vallecito, CA...After attending all three town hall presentations by the CCWD staff, there is a need to put some background to this effort to substantially raise rates. First, we need to read between the lines about what was not talked about. How we got here should have been clearly spelled out by our district staff and it was not. The staff said it was all about future connections that didn’t materialize and a lower tax income. The districts yearly audited financial reports say differently...
