Visitors center likely to shut its doors



    The days may be numbered for the Calaveras Visitors Center in downtown Angels Camp.
    The Calaveras Visitors Bureau, whose office is in the Visitors Center on South Main Street, faces the end of its lease in October. If the bureau chooses to stay, it may face a monthly bill of more than $2,000 from its landlord, the City of Angels Camp.
    It is a price bureau officials say they cannot afford.
  

Business Briefs for Aug. 25, 2010


New Columbia business liaison is Angels Camp native



    Angels Camp native Peggy Harwell is the new California State Parks Central Valley District concessions specialist, based in Columbia.
    She is taking over the position from Cathryn Milner, who retired earlier this year.
    The district includes eight state parks and recreation areas, including Columbia Historic State Park in Tuolumne and Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Railtown 1897 State Park in Jamestown is under separate supervision.
  

Businesses target Standard area


    Two Sonora business owners specializing in food and drink plan to expand to Standard.
    Diamondback Grill owner Eric Davis is in the process of remodeling the historic corporate office of the Standard Mill, which most recently housed the Lumberyard Brewing Co.
    Davis’ new restaurant — which will focus on food and beer, but not the late-night crowd — will be called the Standard Pour.
   

Kamps Propane adding fuel storage and office space

New restaurants adorn Sonora



    A slow economy has not put business plans for a host of Sonora area restaurants on the back burner.
    Recent activity includes the debut of a new family-style restaurant near Wal-Mart, continued work on the relocation of a McDonald’s on Mono Way, and the approaching opening of a new pizzeria downtown.

The Homeplace
    Sonora sisters Jodi Richey and Michelle Keefe, descendants of David and Mary Sanguinetti, renovated a family house into a family-style restaurant on Sanguinetti Road, across from the Sonora Crossroads shopping center parking lot.
    The eatery is dubbed “The Homeplace” a moniker the Sanguinetti family has used for the property since the 1880s, when it was part of a 350-acre holding.
   

Future of small banks is uncertain



    As regulators scurry to flesh out new rules promised by July’s financial overhaul, small banks are left to the monumental task of figuring out how the 2,300-page document impacts them.
    The bill — touted as the biggest clampdown on the financial industry since the 1930s — aimed to target the root causes of the 2008 financial collapse, namely the overextension of banks that gambled with risky mortgages.
  

Board approves facility project


    Tuolumne County has thrown its support behind an effort by Merced County officials to bring a heavy high-speed rail maintenance facility to their county.
