Bonnie Newman, during Public Comments at the Board of Supervisors today, stated that she killed her first rattlesnake of the year where she lives in Double Springs just the other day. She warns that this is the earliest she has seen them in a very long time.
As our readers know, we warned those in the Angels Camp area about the rattlers, as one of our readers told us about killing a big one in town.
While Gary Tofanelli cuts off most people while trying to finish a sentence during Public Comments today, cutting them off a exactly three minutes, but he allowed the woman from Mental Health, who was praising the Board of Supervisors for giving them money, go on for nearly 7 minutes.
Funny that this woman doesn't thank the taxpayers for her money. They made it possible, not the Board of Supervisors! Their priorities are so screwed up at many county offices. POLITICS!
We hear a lot of complaints about all the fees and taxes the Board of Supervisors are passing to make us pay and pay and pay to make up for the losses they created by destroying our economy and therefore lowering property values.
NOW HEAR THIS!! Did you know that it costs $80 in Calaveras County to get permission from the County to install a HOT WATER HEATER! Does this bother you? Then vote against any and all incumbents in November. How do they get away with this?
What do our readers think about this?
|Supervisors raise more fees|
and taxes on our small businesses
The Planning Department has nothing to do, so they have been spending their time making up new fees and taxes for us, the most recent being a SIGN TAX. A sign tax for businesses, but not for certain Supervisors supporters.
I read your article of June 8, 2012 "Campaign for lodging tax shapes up". I find it interesting that once again comments regarding this tax emphasize the positive and omit and/or misrepresent the negative.
And please don't get me wrong. Every one of the recipients of the proposed tax increase is a worthy cause deserving of "everyone's" support.
I'm not suggesting that you purposely omitted one side of the argument; however I suspect that no one has presented it to you.
for EXAMPLE, Pat McGreevy states that" He doesn't undertand the opposition. That it's just a matter of explaining a "win-win" situation.
