OP-ED..By Mike Borean

   Dear Voters of District Three,

   Why I have chosen to support Merita Callaway for Calaveras County District 3 Supervisor and why I strongly oppose the candidacy of Michael Oliveira.

   First, the positives. 

Our beautiful Sierra Nevada Bluejays

Big rig hits overpass on Hwy 99

   UPDATE at 1 PM:  Caltrans has been forced to close all northbound lanes of Hwy 99 due to the structural damage to the overpass. Six CHP units are trying to divert traffic for Caltrans.

"Protect the US against Ebola!!" Fence off Texas!

Keep Ebola where it is
now centered--in Texas!!
   In the state of Texas, we must have heard from every extremist Republican in office on the scary possibility of Ebola epidemics in the US.

   Well, Stephen Colbert, on his show last night, came up with the solution to protect us all from the center of the disease; that is, to barricade around Texas, no flights out, 20' fence on the northern border.

    This would also protect us from the extremist nutcases who try to use scare tactics to get  votes!

Traffic Accident in Coulterville

  UPDATE:  A tow truck has been sent to clear the roadway.

One thing women have learned from the Oscar Pistorius trial!

   When Oscar Pistorius was sentenced to 5 years in prison for Culpable Homocide for killing his girlfriend with four bullets through a door, women everywhere learned something.

   NEVER go to South Africa if you are not getting along with your husband or boyfriend. They could get away with murder.

   Looks like Pistorius will serve perhaps 10 months and then be put on home sentence. Not bad!

Traffic Collision in Columbia

   October 21, 2014 at 11 AM:  A traffic collision has been reported at Hwy 49 and Rawhide Road in Columbia.

   A gold Toyota and a black sedan are involved. No injuries have been reported by be cautious if driving in that area.
