Despicable Allegations Against Tim Healy Are Unwarranted! ~By Tom Cole

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/31/2014 02:24 PM
San Andreas, CA...I’m amazed at the completely unwarranted “piling on” of false allegations against Tim Healy, because he dared to correctly point out his opponent’s weaknesses! Contrary to allegations from Hugh Swift’s ex-wife (Kristy Slocum), Tim Healy has made no false or misleading statements about his opponent! Just visit Swift’s own website. Healy is telling the truth! Healy did not “imply” his opponent has no college education he simply stated that Swift’s job description as Court Executive Officer, when he was “appointed” by Jerry Brown, did not require a four year college degree – which it doesn’t! And everyone already knows aspiring lawyers cannot even be admitted to the bar without appropriate credentials. Furthermore it was not necessary to mention what Swift is doing now, because he advertises it in all of his campaign materials...

Facts or Fiction ~ By Guy Puccio

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/28/2014 05:36 PM
Arnold, CA...Daniel Patrick Moynihan was an author, speaker, and public servant who served with distinction in many positions for the State and Federal Governments during the Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford Administrations and as United States Senator from New York from 1977 to 2001, or for 24 years. As a result, he possessed a substantial history and institutional memory about public policy contributing to his outstanding success as a public servant and was known for brilliant quotes. In response to a speaker with whom he disagreed, Senator Moynihan quipped, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinions, but not his own facts.” He has also observed, “The single most exciting thing you encounter in government is competence, because it’s so rare.”

Political Letters To The Editor Or Opinion Pieces In The Heart Of Campaign Season ~ By John Hamilton

In the heart of election season if you request comments not be allowed on your opinion piece then the candidate's campaign that you are aligning yourself with should have to take ownership of the commentary...

COUNTING THE DAYS AND HOURS Daylight Saving Time in California ~ By Bob Mulvany

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/28/2014 07:30 AM
Calaveras County, CA...We will “fall back” from daylight saving time on November 2. Whew! That is only 49 days before the Winter Solstice. Then on the second Sunday of March 2015 we “spring forward” again. This happens in most states with Arizona being one of the few exceptions. Daylight Saving Time is not entirely popular and there are some drawbacks. For example, it has been found that accidents of all types increase on days following the time change in March. This probably results from sleep deprivation.

Lette to the Editor~by Peggy Morley

Calaveras County, CA....On behalf of the Friends of Calaveras Animal Services (FOCAS), thank you for coming out and supporting our recent yard sale in Valley Springs. With your generous donations, the event raised close to $2,000 to help our animal shelter. Imagine such good could come out of simply cleaning out our attics and garages! We would especially like to thank Jeff and Jamie Davidson, for allowing the use of their lot for the sale. ....

Over $200,000 my family paid for the Road to NO WHERE! ~ Letter To The Editor By Kris Morris

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/25/2014 02:24 PM
Arnold, CA...We have been trying to subdivide our acreage into a three way split for years. Originally we were not required to do road improvements. Over time things changed. We ended up having to build a 34 foot wide road instead of the traditional 24 foot wide road. Why? Because someone had an agenda to put bike lanes down the dead end road. We were forced to give up a portion of our land and pay for this at our expense to complete the bike connector from Pine drive to Oak Circle at Cedar Center in Arnold....

I Am Voting For Michael Oliveira ~ By Lisa Muetterties

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/22/2014 08:34 PM
Arnold, CA...I have been campaigning for Michael Oliveira for Supervisor. I would like to address the recent paid advertisement Supervisor Merita Callaway’s Campaign written by Mike Borean. It is very sad that Mike Borean has chosen to make false and inaccurate comments about Michael Oliveira. Mike Borean and Merita’s campaign has taken to trying to discredit Michael Oliveira and it saddens me. I do know Michael Oliveira will be posting factual information and documentation to correct the many inaccurate statements made by Mike Borean. Michael Oliveira bought his home in Arnold in 2002. He went to work in the Sheriff Department in 2007 and also served as Bailiff. He was appointed to the Resident Deputy position in 2011. I attended the meeting held at the Moose Lodge in Arnold by Sheriff Kuntz where he introduced Michael and explained he would be our Resident Deputy. This meeting was also attended by Merita Callaway....

Letter to The Editor~by Gene and Shellie Cervantes

Posted by: Kim_Hamilton on 10/22/2014 11:35 AM
Murphys, CA...As local business owners in Murphys and Victim Advocates for Citizens Against Homicide, we endorse Tim Healy for Superior Court Judge in Department 2. Tim is the only candidate for Department 2, who has practiced law in the courtroom within the past 15 years. He is the only candidate for Department 2, who has EVER practiced criminal law in the courtroom. Experience is so important when considering who to vote for Superior Court Judge in this year's election. You want the candidate who ....

Why I Am Voting For Judge Swift ~ By Chris Muetterties

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/20/2014 12:39 PM
Angels Camp, CA...I would like to express why I am supporting Hugh Swift for Superior Court Judge Dept. 2. When I was first told that Judge Swift had been appointed by Gov. Brown I knew as a life long republican that I would never support Judge Swift due to his appointment. I was challenged by a friend to come listen to Judge Swift and hear about the process he went through for the appointment. I walked away knowing that Judge Swift will be fair and impartial as he sits on the bench but will not be swayed by politics in his rulings. The truth is I am so fed up with both political parties that I just want to scream....

I Trust Merita Callaway ~ By Doug Shinn

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/17/2014 02:43 PM
Arnold, CA...I want to share some key thoughts about the Supervisor race for District 3.  I urge all voters to stand behind Supervisor Merita Callaway and give her a strong mandate of approval for the future.  We have lived in Calaveras County for 34 years. I'm a real estate broker and have been in real estate for 30 years. Whenever an issue came up that affected our County, town, or real estate in general, I was always able to contact Merita and get her help.  A good case in point was the speed limit increases that Caltrans made which had a negative impact on our downtown.  Merita became involved and worked directly with Caltrans and the Highway Patrol to make the needed changes....
