Fiorina and Christie go home!

   Both Republicans Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have suspended their campaigns and headed home.

   Kasich did better than expected, so he chartered a large jet to fly to South Carolina.

Can Calaveras Planning Commissioners order Health Officer around???

   We've seen some pretty extreme decisions and statements made since the Tea Potty bunch took over the Calaveras Planning Commission. (Tunno and Muetterties are the big mouths!!)

   The worst, however, is the day

Burglary report in Butte Fire area

   On February 9, 2016 around 10:40 PM a caller to the Calaveras Sheriff reported that for the third night in a row a car has been seen at a burned down home on Baker Riley Way in Mountain Ranch loading things into the vehicle.

   Rolls of wire were apparently being loaded into the back of a Chevy Silverado pickup truck. Another call was received less than an hour later.  The Sheriff took no report.

Taxi cab in crash in Columbia

   February 10, 2016 at 9:50 AM:  A collision has been reported involving a taxi cab on Covington Road and Upper Quail Mine Road in the Columbia area.

   No injuries were indicated, but the roadway is blocked so be cautious if heading that way. 

U.S. behind Europe in politics

    With the success of right wing nationalist candidates like Donald Trump and Socialist anti-capitalist candidate Bernie Sanders, the change in American voters is obvious.

   Actually, we are just following behind Europe, who has seen this change since the beginning of the financial crisis in 2007. 

Overturned logging truck in Sonora

   February 10, 2016 at 9:45 AM:  An overturned logging truck is reportedly blocking Mono Way at Hwy 108 in Sonora.

  Avoid the area. It may take a couple of hours to clear. No injuries were indicated.

MyValleySprings.Com can be proud! Supervisor Kearney bought???

   Not enough praise can be given to the MyValleySprings.Com folks, Joyce Teckel and Colleen Platt for their work on making the public aware of the asphalt plant that Calaveras Supervisor Kearney tried to sneak past them.

   At the Board of Supervisors meeting on February 9, 2016 they were praised, while at the same time it was mentioned that Supervisor Kearney is rumored to have taken money for his campaign from the Ford Construction owners and the Asphalt people.

Calaveras Supervisor Kearney RECALL likely???

   Since becoming Supervisor of District 5, Steve Kearney, who had earlier professed to being a calm, deep-thinking moderate, has turned into a flaming tea potty extremist.

   He continued his lack of desire to represent his constituents at the Calaveras Supervisors meeting on February 9, 2016 by trying to give Ford Construction EXTRA time beyond the rules to argue their case.  More on this hearing later.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders WIN!

   Donald Trump easily beat out the other Republican contenders for delegates in the New Hampshire primary last night.  And Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side.

   So, can you imagine!  Trump vs Sanders for President 2016 in November??
