Cantamos Kicks Off The 2016 Brice Station Concert Series

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/28/2016 08:02 AM
Murphys, CA...Michela Macfarlane and Cantamos highlight their musical dexterity by moving from arias, traditional Latin songs and musicals, to contemporary favorites. Their music moves seamlessly from English to Italian, Spanish to French to Portuguese, and back again. Michela Macfarlane spent ten years steeped exclusively in baroque music. To expand her singing world she moved to the realms of jazz, pop, and Latin sounds. She is still true to her operatic roots, but has grown as a performer. Michela is backed by Ron Schaner on (Bass and vocal), Fred Treece (Guitar and vocal), Jerry Solberg (Keyboards and vocal) and Ray Price (Drums).

Buckle Up & Save Lives This Weekend. CHP MEP Starts Tonight!

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/27/2016 09:49 AM
Sacramento, CA...Memorial Day weekend, one of the busiest travel weekends of the year, is the traditional start of summer and a time when more travelers and especially families will be on the go. When California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers take to the roads over the Memorial Day weekend, they will be working to save lives through seat belt education and enforcement. To help keep motorists safe, the CHP will be conducting its annual Memorial Day Maximum Enforcement Period (MEP) throughout the state. The MEP begins at 6:01 p.m. on Friday, May 27, and continues through 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 30. Although the focus of the MEP is seat belt usage, the CHP will be watching just as diligently for distracted drivers and those driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol.

10,800 Marijuana Plant Seedlings Eradicated on Private Property

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/26/2016 03:57 PM
Copperopolis, CA...On 05-26-2016 members of the Calaveras Narcotics Enforcement Unit eradicated 10,800 marijuana plant seedlings from a rural private property on Rock Creek Road in Copperopolis. Sheriff’s Investigators received a tip that a clandestine water line was found running into a pond on the property. The unknown suspects had attempted to conceal this water line by burying it and covering the line with dirt, rocks, and grass. Suspecting possible illegal marijuana cultivation, investigators checked the property this morning at the request of the owner. The investigators located a campsite hidden in the brush, along with groceries that had been recently brought into the campsite. The water line led from the pond to a series of seed beds containing marijuana seedlings.

San Andreas, CA...The Calaveras County Water District Board of Directors voted to remove all water conservation restrictions at today’s Board meeting (Read the resolution here), meaning all CCWD customers are now at a 0% conservation level.

CCWD calculated its supplies based on the State Board’s guidelines and determined the District does not currently have a supply shortage and, even if the next three years are dry, will not experience a supply shortage.

Murphys, CA...To kick off this year’s season of First Fridays in the Park neighborhood concerts, the sponsoring Murphys Community Club is actually staging the June event on the second Friday of the month, June 10 to avoid a conflict with the graduation ceremony at Bret Harte High School. “It has become a tradition to move our June performance ahead seven days,” states MCC president Suzanne Friedman. “With many of our families involved with Bret Harte we don’t want to compete with the school’s important year-end celebration.” From June to September, First Friday in the Park will feature a performance by a local musical group playing in the iconic gazebo starting at 5:30 p.m. From 4 p.m., a special dinner will be available for purchase at $12.00 per person and a featured local wine will be on sale along with other beverages.
