Posted by: thepinetree on 02/24/2021 06:40 PM
San Jose, CA...The Fry's Closings truly mark the end of an era as thousands of tech start ups started after a "Trip to Fry's". They had expanded well beyond their Silicon Valley roots but for many, many tech entrepreneurs this is a sad day indeed. During the height of the Dot Com boom it always felt like the next billion dollar idea was waiting to be built when you wandered the isles of Fry's. The following is their release...

Calaveras Public Health Announces Twenty-Two Additional Deaths from COVID-19

Posted by: thepinetree on 02/24/2021 04:21 PM
San Andreas, CA...As Calaveras County comes out of a recent COVID case surge, Calaveras Public Health is working to reconcile its case information with the state reporting system. Due to this, there will be some fluctuations in case information. This includes COVID case fatalities that occurred during this surge. Reporting of COVID fatalities that occurred during the surge occurs when the cause of death is confirmed by the State of California and by Calaveras County Public Health. The public should be prepared to see a rise in reported case fatalities that occurred in the last three months, including 22 additional deaths that will be reflected in the county’s COVID-19 dashboard later today. Our thoughts are with the families that have lost loved ones.

Hey Good People!! Copious Amounts of Pure Mountain Fun Awaits at Skyline Bear Valley!

Posted by: thepinetree on 02/24/2021 02:58 PM
Bear Valley, CA...Hey Good People! A far cry from yesterday morning with current winds speeds as the have certainly taken the low road this morning with 9-13mph as compared to 66mph at the same time yesterday! Sunshine and copious amounts of it are in the forecast for the next handful of days with a high of 37F today skiing & riding will be sweet for sure! Tonight winds will increase up into the possible 40mph range so batten down the hatches and watch for debris in the a.m. A slight chance of snow showers is trying to show face come Monday but the model runs are still out of alignment on that one so check in later this week and I’ll have an update on that system. This weather season has been a different one for sure but with 74″ as our current base and 100% open terrain skiing and riding will be great for weeks to come as we may even experience slight spring type conditions. Get out and ski/ride and enjoy the Pure Mtn Fun ethos! Stay tuned....

President Biden During a Meeting with a Bipartisan Group of House and Senate Members on U.S. Supply Chains

Posted by: thepinetree on 02/24/2021 02:04 PM
Washington, DC...Folks, we’re going to have a meeting today to talk about the critical supply chain — critical supply chain issues that we — that affect us all, affect this country. The last year has shown the vulnerability we have with some of the supply chains, including the PPE that we needed badly, but had to go abroad to get. And there are current strategies — and these little chips here for automobiles, I didn’t realize how many billions of chips are in here — but causing some lines to slow down and people not being laid off, but at least to shorten the shifts.

Joey is Your Calaveras County Animal Services Pet of the Week!

Posted by: News_Desk on 02/24/2021 01:54 PM
San Andreas, CA... Meet Joey - an energetic, hound mix eager to find his forever home. About one year old, Joey enjoys playing ball and will sit nicely when asked. He is very affectionate with his handlers and was excited to play with some of the other shelter dogs to which he was introduced. Not all, though, so we’d recommend a “meet and greet” should you have another dog at home. Joey would benefit from some obedience training to help him better learn his leash manners. We also believe he is housebroken since he keeps his kennel clean.

President Biden and Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada Before Virtual Bilateral Meeting

Posted by: thepinetree on 02/23/2021 06:38 PM
Washington, DC...Mr. Prime Minister, it’s good to see you. And I wish I could reciprocate the hospitality you gave me when I visited Ottawa as Vice President in 2016. The sooner we get this pandemic under control, the better. And I look forward to seeing you in person in the future. As you know, to state the obvious — we had a private talk about this a little while ago — the United States has no closer friend — no closer friend than Canada. That’s why you were my first call as President, my first bilateral meeting. And, of course, my Vice President spent some time living up in Montreal for high school. And so our channel of communication is — are wide open.
