Fiber optic cables to be done by year’s end


    Gold Country residents will soon have access to a wider selection of TV channels and Internet speeds that are among the fastest in the state.
    Comcast is on track to finish construction on a multi-million dollar fiber optic cable upgrade to Tuolumne County’s telecommunications network by the end of the year. The project involves roughly 390 miles of cable and will provide data speeds many times faster than what is currently available, according to Comcast Northern California Vice President Andrew Johnson.

Twain Harte barber celebrates 40 years


    The original owner of the Twain Harte Family Barber Shop had some sobering words for Dennis Scroggs on the day he purchased the downtown business: “You know you’re not going to make it up here, kid.”
    That was 40 years ago, and Scroggs has been proving him wrong every day since.
    “Maybe I never ‘made it,’ but I’m still here,” said Scroggs, 66.
    He said the secret to his business’s longevity is simple: Be there. His barber shop is open during regular business hours, rain or shine, drizzle or blizzard. He even makes hair-cutting house calls for customers who are too old or sick to come downtown.
    “Some people close up early if there are no customers, and they miss out on a few here and there,” he said. “It makes a difference.”

Sierra lease rates hold steady – for now


    Most property owners in the Mother Lode are holding steady on rental rates — for now.
    With one in every 322 Tuolumne County homes and one in every 157 Calaveras County homes in foreclosure, the housing market is having ripple effects on rental properties. It’s a complex relationship that is seeing rental homes and apartments become more popular as single-family dwellings are vacated due to foreclosures.
    “It’s a better time to be a landlord right now,” said Carol Griggs of Frontier Property Management, which manages 250 rental homes in Tuolumne and Calaveras counties.
