Even NY Times notices Congressman in trouble

   Good old California is a long way from New York, but with the top two primary in California, everyone is interested in one particular race. The New York Times is reporting it.

   The LOOONNNG time Congressman who has represented Calaveras County and the surrounding area for a long time but has NEVER lived here, is in BIG trouble.  Art Moore, a veteran and Bronze Star recipient is the most popular candidate right now in most informal polls we've taken.

Did you know about John Bohner smoking?

   Last week we heard that John Bohner was not allowed in one Senate members office and that if they met it had to be in Bohner's office.

East Bay MUD buys $8 million worth of water


  Due to the drought conditions, the East Bay Municipal Utility District which supplies water for 1.3 million customers in the Bay Area, we just learned has bought $8 million worth of water from the Sacramento River. This could result in a surcharge for their customers.

  This purchase will give them approximately 16,000 acre feet more water, which is good for about one month. EBMUD owns Pardee Reservoir and says they are paying for this from monies received from a sale of property in Castro Valley.

Kiddie Parade Signup Time

  The Frog Jump is May 15-18, 2014 and so it is time to sign up for the Kiddie Parade, which will be
handled by the Soroptomists in downtown Angels.

   Applications are at the Frogtown main office or you can call Karen Varni at 304-1188 or Karen Strand at 404-1074 for more info.
