Chair Pastor Edsel will lead prayers at Calaveras Supervisors

   On Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at 9 AM Calaveras Supervisor Chair Pastor Edsel will lead the prayers, helped by Pontiff Ponte, to begin the Board of Supervisors meeting.

    On the agenda, if prayers for those sinners who believe women should have rights should ever end, is a code violation in District 3 against Michael Cuomo on Gray Mare in Avery. (One person mentioned he doesn't have enough guns to make Oliveira happy). We will cover other agenda items later.  

These are real orchids

Little Monkey faced orchids! Cute!

Davos expensive--even hot dogs!

   The World Economic Forum, as usual, is taking place in Davos, Switzerland this week. Billionaires from all over the world have collected there.

   And some say you need to be a billionaire, just to eat in Davos. One person said that a hot dog with onions is around $45.

And the Race for 2016 begins...In Iowa!

     And so, the first of many campaign stops for Republican hopefuls always begins in Iowa, as the Freedom Summit there begins on Saturday, organized by Citizens United.

    So, let's see; neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, business exec Carly Fiorina, former Governors Mike Huckabee and Rick Perry, former Senator Rick Santorum and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker are all scheduled to speak.

   Of course, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin and Donald Trump will also be entertaining the crowd. Bush, Romney, Jindal, Paul and Rubio are not attending.

Dogtown Road needs development

   After much studying on the subject, we now feel that perhaps development is just what Dogtown Road and the area around it needs in Angels Camp.

   The City wants to clean up that area, get rid of the poor people and raise tax rates and perhaps they are right to want to do that. What do you think?? Have the residents in that area decided they want it developed??

City of Angels Camp only allows compliments???

   You know, any person who runs and is elected to office needs to know that not everyone agrees with their decisions, their opinions or their performance.  No one is allowed 1st Amendment rights in the  City of Angels Camp unless you agree with them??

   In addition, they need to know that all citizens, taxpayers, property owners, etc.  have a 1st Amendment Right to express those opinions.  Apparently that is not the case with the City of Angels Camp. Wait till you hear what they do!!

The old Nugget Bar property for sale?
