This is Ron Glass and Family, and we own Abbott’s Snow Removal.

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/02/2018 04:45 PM
Dorrington, CA...This is to reassure our customers, new and old that Abbott’s Snow Removal is ready for this 2018-19 snow season! It has come to our attention that people in Dorrington/Camp Connell have been getting phone calls from someone falsely representing our business stating that we are no longer offering services to our customers and referring our business to another local company. This could not be farther from the truth! We are here, bigger and better than ever to serve you!

Dear Mr. President Please Help Us Value People Over Fish ~ By Supervisor Dennis Mills

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/21/2018 12:05 PM
Angels Camp, CA...The Following letter has been sent to the President by Calaveras County Supervisor Dennis Mills.
Dear Mr. President: I am writing to you on behalf of thousands of California citizens, farmers, business leaders, local and state elected officials, and even conservationists who are strongly opposed to a plan by the California State Water Resources Board to drain our reservoirs in a vain attempt to save a few fish. Simply put this proposal places a higher value on fish than people! After extensive opposition presented in numerous hearings in the Central Valley of California, the State Water Resources Board remains committed to their plan which would remove as much as 50% of the water flowing out of our Sierra rivers and sending it out the Golden Gate in order to improve habitat for a small number of Salmon.

On the Officer Involved Shooting of John James Corrigan ~ By Katie Greer

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/09/2018 09:25 AM
Mountain Ranch, CA...This is regarding the officer involved shooting in Calaveras county on 7/5/18. I would like to share facts that the Sheriff's department left out of their statement and clear up some FALSE information they publicized to everyone: First I would like to publicly apologize to the officers involved for the position John put you in. I can not even imagine what you went and are going through. And your families. I would like to commend you for doing your job, as I respect your position and doing what you were trained to do in that situation.

Property Rights & Abuse Concerns about Chapter 8.06 Proposed Rewrite Tuesday ~ By Colleen Platt

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/09/2018 06:48 PM
San Andreas, CA...Dear Calaveras County Board of Supervisors, Please seriously consider & question the proposed rewrite of county code Chapter 8.06 ‘Property Maintenance & Code Enforcement’, to be heard at your Board Meeting Tuesday. It sets off too many red flags. The public is legitimately upset & fearful about the expanded code enforcement powers, possibility of selective enforcement of county code, potential for abuse of power by county employees, likelihood of unknown & excessive fees and fines piling up for minor infractions and small unpermitted structures, lack of due process and threats to property rights in summary abatements and summary fines, and more.

Sacramento, CA...Americans Against Gun Violence extends heartfelt sympathy to the families, friends, and colleagues of the five people killed, including the newspaper editor, three journalists, and another staff member, in the mass shooting on June 28, 2018, at the office of the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland. At the same time, we agree with the statement by the late Senator Thomas Dodd of Connecticut who said in a press release and a speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate 50 years ago:

Box Stores in Angels Camp! ~ Letter to the Editor by Gail & Ted Bunge

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/27/2018 06:04 PM
Angels Camp, CA...Although we live outside of Angels Camp, for close to 40 years we have shopped along the Highway 4 corridor, including in Angels. Angels Camp City Council is considering a zoning change to allow Tractor Supply to build. When we hear people talk about wanting big box stores in our foothill communities, we remind them that most people move to the foothills to live in a rural area. If box stores are important to them, they can live in just about any other city in the country, where they can find all the big stores they want.

Farm Subsidies Make No Sense. By Congressman Tom McClintock

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/26/2018 12:55 PM
Washington, DC...New Zealand is four times more dependent on agriculture than the United States, and it once maintained extensive farm subsidies. In 1984, it ended them. What happened? Farm productivity and earnings rose. The Federated Farmers of New Zealand fought just as vigorously as their American counterparts to preserve their subsidies. Yet in hindsight, the same group now says that its experience “thoroughly debunked the myth that the farming sector cannot prosper without government subsidies.” In fact, it thrives.

Statement on Supervisor Mills Response to Recall Efforts By David "DK" Sweet, Committee to Recall Dennis Mills.

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/11/2018 09:50 AM
Angels Camp, CA...I’ll admit being concerned what will happen when Dennis Mills’ family, close friends, and ardent supporters discover he’s a pathological liar. There are so many lies in Mr. Mills’ statement it's hard to know where to start. Let's try the hilarious "Big Pot" accusation.

Vote for Measure A on June 5th ~ Florence Alberts

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/24/2018 08:54 AM
San Andreas, CA....In 2003, I retired and became a volunteer at Mark Twain Medical Center. I have worked in several departments one or two days a week, six hours a day. On June 5, the voters of Calaveras County have a chance to help our hospital. Vote yes on Measure A. It’s a measure asking voters to approve a new lease between Mark Twain Medical Center and the Mark Twain Health Care District and renew the affiliation with Dignity Health. It does not raise taxes or have any impact on your tax bill. It does not give our hospital to Dignity Health.

Clyde Clapp, Against the Asphalt Plant & Against Pot ~ Bob Vera

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/13/2018 09:41 AM
Rancho Calaveras, CA...I hope the people of District 5 will vote for Clyde Clapp for Supervisor. Clyde has proven himself with his dedication to his District and to the whole County. He was front and center standing up to fight the Asphalt Plant that they tried to shove down our throats. When he saw all of the criminals invading our County to grow Pot he decided to fight against it and he worked to change what the previous Board of Supervisors had created. In less than two years he gained the support to ban the Commercial Pot Grows.
