Post Office to Default on $5 Billion Payment

   Many laughed when we wrote a year ago that you will soon be paying $1 per stamp at the post office!

   After intentionally delaying lay-offs, closures, and incompetently failing tp cut costs in any measurable way, the US Postal Service reportedly will default on its $5 Billion payment to Congress this week.

   If you go the the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) website its easy to see why. The Union and management at the Postal Service is either unwilling or totally incompetent in dealing with the facts.

What is This?

What is this a picture of ?

Letter to the Editor; Public Access Complaint

  Dear Editor:
   As you know, I am a regular viewer of Channel 9, Calaveras County's Public Access TV station for government meetings.
   I have been one of your constant complainers over the last couple of years that someone down at Public Access either doesn't know what they are doing or they intentionally screw things up.
