Calaveras gets new CAO

   The Calaveras Supervisors meet on Tuesday November 22, 2016 in their chambers to appoint a temporary CAO to the position vacated by Shirley Ryan who is retiring.

   We couldn't locate a photo of Manuel Lopez, who is the person chosen to take her place for a few month, as the county searches for a new permanent CAO.

   Doug Lawler is the featured artist at the reception.

Get ready for the storm!

    Make sure everything is covered and tied down outside because we are supposed to get thunderstorms with wind this afternoon.  It's pretty warm for snow, though.

     We're still hoping for some snow up high. We need it!

Tie an orange ribbon round your dead pine tree!!

  Sad, but true!! There are a lot of orange colored ribbons tied round dead pine trees in Ebbetts Pass. There will be a lot less shade for many people next summer.

   Cabins or homes in the woods will no longer be homes in the woods for those who are losing most of their trees. More water and less fertilizer around them might have helped, we've heard. Oliveira, District 3 Supervisors, who pretends to be doing something about it, isn't doing anything!!

   November 19, 2016 at 9:30 AM:  A car has run off Shake Ridge Road near Oneto Road and into the bushes in Sutter Creek.
