Turning Over Law-Enforcement Power to Calaveras Humane Society?

When will hunter be charged?

   The California State Attorney Generals Office has stated that after investigating the cause of the Rim Fire, the third worst fire in the history of California, "it is likely" that the hunter they believe caused it will be charged.

   Due to an illegal campfire, according to authorities, the Stanislaus National Forest and parts of Yosemite National Park were ravaged by the fire.

   Although many have questioned the tactics the USFS used in battling the Rim Fire before it took control of the entire forest in that area, there isn't much question as to who started the fire.

At least Mandela knew to step down-- not Callaway

   As the world mourns a great man, and as President Obama calls him "..a profoundly good man" we have to wonder how he maintained his grace during 27 years in prison.

   One of the greatest things he did for his people was to step down after one term as President. What is wrong with certain elected people in Calaveras is that they don't really care about us; they just want to die in office (cannot give up the power)!  It's very sad. First Tryon and now Callaway.
