No arrests made in Calaveras on April 29, 2014.....

   For the first time since we have been tracking records at the Calaveras Sheriff's Office, we were shocked to see a blank page with a heading "no arrests made" for April 29, 2014.

  On April 30, 2014 there was only 1 and that was for a Disorderly Conduct related misdemeanor.  Where is the Sheriff? We can read the log of all the supposed criminal activity.

Trespasser reported in Angels Camp

   Very interesting that a trespassing incident was reported to the police on April 30, 2014 on Hwy 49 in Angels Camp by some people related to PG&E; an ongoing issue.

   If you are aware of this, we can tell you these people have been reported previously. Did they have Osmose on their truck doors? We can tell you all about them. Send an email.

Homeless people camping in Copperopolis

   On April 30, 2014 it was reported to the Calaveras Sheriff from a resident on Obyrnes Ferry and Pheasant Run that homeless people seem to be camping behind the Copper Hills subdivision.

   Then a call came in 10 minutes later from Deerfield in Copperopolis, a disturbance of a male throwing things in anger.  Were they related? Hard to tell, but no report was taken in either case.

Grand Theft reported in Sheep Ranch

   On April 30, 2014 a Grand Theft report was given to the Calaveras Sheriff from Main Street in Sheep Ranch.

Where the jobs are....

   Did you know that Los Angeles accounts for about half of the 221,000 in the US film industry.

   They want to double the tax credits and expand it to include advertising, shows on premium cable and films with budgets over $75 million each. Want a good job?  Try the film industry. Oh, you are afraid to leave Calaveras? Oh, well, then....

McClintock now seems Terrified of Art Moore!!

Art Moore, candidate for
Congress District 4
   Instead of attending the debates set up for himself and Art Moore, the incumbent McClintock, who does not live here, has been attempting to hold Town Halls to promote himself.

   Calling them NON-political, very few people other than Tea Party members are attending. What is he afraid of?  Well, Art Moore, of course!! 

Discounts for the Calaveras County Fair

  The Calaveras County Fair is in two weeks and we just received a press release about discounted admissions.

Our Incumbent Congressman against Speaker of the House?

    We have seen written comments by the District 4 incumbent's  top advisor against John Bohner remaining Speaker of the House. He is so disrespectful; typical of the Tea Potty. We need to eliminate them from our politics.

   We were not aware that our own current Congressman is AGAINST his own Republican House leader. It is clear that we made the right choice for Congress by endorsing Art Moore; a veteran with a Bronze Star, a man who LIVES in and loves our District and who respects the Speaker of the House, whoever it may be.

May Day 2014

It's MayDay. So Dance around the
Maypole with your kitty!!
