11/15/2019 - Calaveras Football Thanks the Seniors Event Tomorrow Night
Valley Springs, CA...Calaveras Football came to an abrupt end on Wednesday and assuming some folks around the county might be free Friday night due to that, stop by Brew’gers this Friday night to congratulate the 2019 Calaveras Football Team on a hard fought season. All players, coaches, family, students, alumni and general public who have supported us since the beginning we hope to see you there. Please help share this as it’s short notice of course. Thank you again for your continued support.


From Calaveras High School....

"Due to an unfortunate clerical error, the 2019 Calaveras Football season has come to an end. Unknowing to coaches and administrators in the Calaveras Football Organization an ineligible player played in the closing minutes of our first round playoff game this past Friday night. Therefore, Calaveras has been forced by the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section to forfeit the aforementioned contest ultimately ending the 2019 Football season for Calaveras Football.

First and foremost, we sincerely apologize to the the Calaveras Senior Football Players for this tragic mistake. As Football coaches we will be able to coach under the lights again, but for those seniors, they may never be under the bright lights again. Due to a minor infraction, these student athletes received the harshest punishment imaginable. It’s a ruling that truly does not match the infraction committed. Most of you seniors will never play this game again and we are truly sorry it ended this way.

Secondly, we would like to apologize to the parents, supporters and alumni of Calaveras Football. You’re unwavering support throughout the season for our players and coaches leaves us forever grateful. The moments experienced this season by these young men will be memories they carry with them for life. Thank you for the time and effort you put forth this season we are truly blessed as a coaching staff to have such a supportive community.

To close, the Calaveras Football Coaching Staff will do everything in its power to ensure something like this never happens again. Although we disagree with the results of this decision, we understand the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section’s stance in this matter. However, the error of a few must not infringe on a student athletes opportunity to pursue and achieve academic and athletic excellence.

Thank you to everyone involved in the Calaveras Football Program and the Calaveras Football Community for your continued support."

11/15/2019 - MEN: Make Time to Take Care of Yourself MTMC Marks Men’s Health Month with November 15th Workshop
San Andreas, CA...Many men neglect their health. Mark Twain Medical Center (MTMC) highlights oft-heard excuses and offers tips on how to take action at a Nov. 15 luncheon workshop. The session is from 10 a.m. to noon and includes a complimentary luncheon. “The central theme is to make time to take care of yourself,” says Doug Archer, MTMC President and CEO. “Men tend to overlook their own health as everyday demands pull them in many different directions,” he adds.


“November is Men’s Health Month so we’ve planned this event to draw attention to local resources available to help men achieve and maintain good health,” Archer adds, “We will also focus on other items men should be addressing in a timely manner – like Veterans Benefits and establishing a Medical Power of Attorney.”

Featured speakers on men’s health issues are Dr. Vik Moharir and Dr. Wyatt Jaffe; both are physicians in the MTMC Emergency Room. Veterans’ resources will be explained by Natasha Johnson of the Calaveras Veterans Services Office

Topics include –
•Prostate Awareness •Healthy Tips for Better Quality of Life • Medical Power of Attorney
•Emergency Care Can Save Your Life• Local Resources for Veterans
This workshop is the latest in Mark Twain Medical Center’s “A Plan 4 Me” series which provides access to information that can help to address everyday situations, as well as identifying and preventing health issues. When attending their first session, participants receive a free “A Plan 4 Me” binder in which to organize reference materials distributed at each event.
Workshop seating is limited and reservations are required. Reserve now; contact Nicki Stevens, MTMC Manager of Marketing & Business Development, at 754-5919.

10/18/2019 - Valley Springs Health & Wellness Center Grand Opening on October 18th
Valley Springs, CA...The Valley Springs Health & Wellness Center is slated to open with a Grand Opening Celebration on Friday, October 18, 2019 located at 51 Wellness Way in Valley Springs - corner of Hwy 26 and Vista del Lago. It will begin at 10:00 am with a guest speaker and a ribbon cutting at 11:00 am. Then tour the new facility right after, with light refreshments served.


The Center will provide primary care, pediatric care, internal medicine, vaccinations, dentistry, radiology and laboratory services. It will be open Monday-Friday 8-5pm. We will see patients starting on Wednesday, October 16, therefore you can call now to make an appointment at 772-7070.

Because the center will be a federally designated “Rural Health Clinic” the target patient population is Medi-Cal, Medicare-Medi-Cal, and managed Medi-Cal. That said, anyone with any insurance may receive appointments and care and we expect about 20% of our patients to be Medicare, commercial insurance, or cash pay. Everyone is welcome.

The Valley Springs Health & Wellness Center is wholly owned and operated by the Mark Twain Health Care District.

“We are really excited about serving the community and providing access to care, customer service, and quality care at the highest level possible,” says Dr. Randy Smart, MTHCD CEO.

09/21/2019 - The 2019 Artists Studio Tour
San Andreas, CA...The Artists Studio Tour is a two day event that offers art collectors and enthusiasts the opportunity to tour the county and see the artwork of our rural and urban artists. Some of the artists on our tour rarely exhibit publicly, so this is an opportunity to meet them and see their work. It encourages a close personal relationship between artists and art lovers.


The tour is self-guided using a brochure provided free of charge at the CCAC Gallery on Main Street in San Andreas as well as businesses and libraries throughout Calaveras County, or online at our website. Maps inside the brochure will guide you through Calaveras County back roads and country neighborhoods. You'll discover that Calaveras art is as enjoyable as its wine and gold rush towns.
09/28/2019 - Mark Twain Medical Center Showcases Local Health Resources at Fall Health Fair
San Andreas, CA...Mark Twain Medical Center presents the 21st Annual Fall Health Fair on Saturday, September 28 from 7 a.m. to noon at the Hospital Campus in San Andreas. “Participation in this event is just as enthusiastic now as it was when we started over two decades ago,” notes Doug Archer, MTMC President and CEO. “It’s a tradition – a great opportunity to find out about the latest in local resources for health care, wellness and social services.” He explains this Health Fair includes an especially wide-range of health and wellness professionals, nonprofit entities, and government agencies that collaborate in providing education, support services and lifestyle tools to the local community.


In addition, the event offers low cost health screening and services. Attendees can take advantage of a five-panel blood analysis, including a chemistry panel, thyroid, complete blood count, lipid panel, iron for women, PSA for men, and vitamin D deficiencies ($45); and Bone Density Screenings ($25). Those participating in the blood analysis should not eat or drink anything after 10 p.m. the night before. Adult Flu shots will be administered at no cost.

Archer notes over 40 community partners will be featured at the event. “They value our Health Fair as a great opportunity to offer insights into their areas of expertise including senior support and health services, health insurance information, long term and short term care, hospice, home health, mental health and nutrition. MTMC is proud to continue this tradition.”

Here is what some of the participating organizations have to share about why they are involved:

MACT HEALTH BOARD, INC., Kevin Cornwell, OD --“Access to eye care plays an integral role within health care today. Eye doctors routinely encounter the ocular manifestations of many systemic diseases through an eye exam. Many patients may be asymptomatic, yet have the signs of undiagnosed hypertension or type 2 diabetes in their eyes. Including optometry at health fairs gives patients a better understanding on the importance of receiving routine eye care to maintain their health.”

CALAVERAS COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS, CALAVERAS TRANSIT AGENCY, Amber Collins Executive Director– “The MTMC Health Fair is a great (and free!) resource for agencies to gain exposure with the community, as well as other organizations. This is an ideal venue for Calaveras Connect to share information about our public transit system and how to access the service.”
