Your June Ace Red Hot Buys from Sender's Ace Hardware

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/26/2022 03:43 PM
Valley Springs & Mountain Ranch, CA...In 1950, we started out as a family operation with Erich’s father and mother, August and Freida Sender, in a century-old adobe building. The upstairs was home to the Sender family, and the first floor included groceries, a meat market, a bar, and a small eating place called Opa’s Smokehouse. On Christmas morning in 1968, the old store was destroyed by fire. But in June 1969, Sender’s Market, Inc. was opened. Since that time, there have been many changes, including remodeling, expansion, and the addition of many employees. That’s also when we added the truss plant and purchased Sender’s Market Ace Hardware in Valley Springs. Today, we’re still family owned and still working hard to stock everything from pantry essentials to power tools. Whether you’ve got questions about the perfect cut of meat or the right kind of paint, our helpful, knowledgeable staff has you covered. Click on images below for larger versions.

We think it’s a — anyway. Jill and I know how painful and devastating a decision is for so many Americans — and I mean so many Americans. The decision is implemented by states. My administration is going to focus on how they administer it and whether or not they violate other laws, like deciding to not allow people across state lines to get public health services. And we’re going to take actions to protect women’s rights and reproductive health.

The Federalist Papers Number One by Publius. Introduction by John Hamilton

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/24/2022 10:39 AM
Arnold, CA...With the recent Supreme Court decisions we believe it is time to reexamine the foundational principles our county was founded upon. The Federalist Papers are as close as we can get to looking into the minds of our founding fathers and see their timeless intent. Was our county flawed at its founding? Of course but the principles and reasoning on which it was founded are just as valid today as 246 years ago. The Federalist Papers are a collection of 85 articles and essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay under the pseudonym "Publius" to promote the ratification of the United States Constitution. They were a sales document for the Constitution.
