Segalla tries to help Kearney

   Al Segalla, who says he represents all taxpayers, got up during Calaveras Supervisors Public Comments on June 9, 2015 to praise Supervisor Kearney and the Calaveras Planning Director Maurer for putting Mr. Ford's ASPHALT plant on the river in Valley Springs. HUH???

Kearney may be recalled due to his asphalt plant. He was supported by the Tea Party in the recent election.

   Mr. Segalla perhaps needs to move next door to this wonderful asphalt plant project to prove he loves asphalt and that it's good for the rivers and all of the residents. Too bad he's not an elected official or we could put him in the DONKEY PEN!!

Bear Cub killed on Hwy 4

   Just above Forest Meadows on Hwy 4 there is a black bear cub that was apparently killed during the night, most likely by one of those large wood chip trucks.

   It did not appear to be old enough to be on its own, but as we have discovered, someone is killing or trapping the mother bears, forcing the cubs to try and survive, often with dire consequences.

Drive carefully--roads may be slippery!

  June 10, 2015: Rain is likely off and on today in the Mother Lode. Drive carefully as roadways may be slippery.

Bear could be in baseball...

This brown bear caught a sandwich that the woman tourist
threw. Perhaps he's had lots of practice.
