Caltrans fixing Tryon's " Drunken Question Mark"

Warning!! Hwy 4 at Big Trees Road
to the Post Office!!
  When Tom Tryon was Supervisor, his friend Mr. Kautz wanted to build cheap in the sanitarium property he had purchased in Murphys. The result was insanity!!

   Kautz and Tryon conned Caltrans into faking a dangerous intersection on Hwy 4 we have always called Tryon's "Drunken Question Mark".  Guess what?? Caltrans is going to widen it out, fix it so its not so dangerous. Thank you, Caltrans!!

Elephant rescued 10 miles out to sea

   The Sri Lankan Navy discovered this elephant around 10 miles out to sea.

Delays on Hwy 4 at Big Trees

   Next week, July 17-21, 2017 Caltrans will be working to widen and improve the entrance area to Big Trees State Park.  One-way traffic with 10 minute delays should be expected.
   Although very controversial, Big Trees had all the Sequoias in that area clear-cut so that they could do this work.  There was quite a stir about it because people did not feel they were property notified and did not want the Sequoias cut down for any reason.

FOX News: Lie after lie after lie

   Even FOX News is asking why, if all the Russian meetings are so innocent and 'nothing burgers', WHY lie and lie and lie. Now it turns out at least 8 people, many of them Russians, were in the meeting with Junior!!

   They have lied to FOX News too, and Hannity trusted the Junior when he told him there was nothing more to tell. LIES, LIES, LIES!! Playing even FOX News for PATSIES!!
