MARIPOSA COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is planning a pre-emptive closure of State Route 140 in and near the Ferguson Fire burn scar beginning at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 16, 2019.

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/15/2019 06:56 PM
Columbia, CA...Last night deputies attempted to stop a green Honda Accord on Yankee Hill Road in Columbia for expired registration. As soon as the driver spotted the deputy, he took off. The deputy caught up with the vehicle and noticed it had slid off the roadway and collided into a metal gate in front of a home. As the deputy pulled his patrol car behind the Honda, the driver put his car in reverse and accelerated, slamming into the patrol car before taking off and leading the deputies in a pursuit. The driver later identified as 35-year-old Christopher Snyder of Sonora, stopped the car in a driveway on Glory Gulch Road and took off on foot.

Progress Made Into Conversion of Breast Cancer Cells Into Fat Cells

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/15/2019 10:12 AM
Basel, Switzerland...An innovative combination therapy can force malignant breast cancer cells to turn into fat cells. This can be used to prevent the formation of metastases in mice, as researchers at the University of Basel’s Department of Biomedicine recently reported in the journal Cancer Cell. Tumor cells can adapt dynamically to changing conditions thanks to their ability to reactivate a cellular process that is central to embryonic development. This allows the cells to alter their molecular properties and to acquire new capabilities.As a result, resident cells can adopt the properties of other cell types and break away from their cell cluster. Once mobile, the cells migrate via the bloodstream to other regions of the body, where they undergo a further conversion before taking root and forming new tissue structures.

Hey Good People!! Copious Amounts of "Pure Mtn Fun" Ahead this Week! ~ Mattly Trent

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/14/2019 11:34 AM
Bear Valley, CA...Hey Good People! A crisp morning of clear skies and 22F starts the day ahead of the approaching storm system. Snow showers are expected today but looks to arrive late morning into early afternoon. Tonight we could see up to 4″ as the system starts kicking into high gear. The next 3 days or so will bring copious amounts of snow to the forecast area with Aline County directly in it’s sights. Totals from the current model runs will look like this: Tuesday-4-8″, Tuesday night 8-12″, Wednesday-5-9″, Wednesday night 13-19″, Thursday- 16-22″, Thursday night- snow showers. So it looks like 46-70″ are possible but we’ll see how the last half of the system works out as warm air on the backside of the system could bring snowfall elevations up near 6500′ at the end of the storm. Surface pressure gradients will also increase come late Tuesday night/Wednesday as winds will pick up into the 30’s and possible low 40’s. Drifting snow and bigger accumulations will be seen with redistribution on the micro and macro levels. Either way conditions are favorable for quality snow production and the coming storms look to be low enough in elevation that the Grizz Bowl looks to come online sooner than later. This a classic January snowfall pattern for us and It’s time for some skiing/riding my friends so come on up and enjoy some “Pure Mtn Fun”.
