Two Supes over-react at Calaveras County Board meeting

    “We didn’t think it would be controversial to say Calaveras County likes nature.”   
    So said Calaveras High School senior Kati Giblin, who with fellow Earth Club member Cierra Allen came before the Board of Supervisors last week for approval of a seemingly innocent resolution designating April 15 through 23 as “Earth Week” in the county.
    Earth Club members will mark the week with a variety of environmental activities, including recycling batteries, bottles, cans, compost and used electronic gear, giving away reusable grocery bags and sponsoring documentary films.

Real budget reform needed to move California forward

Tom Berryhill - Guest Opinion


When the budget proposal was presented, it was clear that there was plenty of pain to go around. The proposal relied more on taxes than on cuts; however, the Governor seemed open to discussion. It would have been irresponsible of me to have ignored the opportunity to work with this new Governor and explore just what opportunities were available to us to reform and restore California. 

While I believe the voters have a right to choose, we in Sacramento must work our hardest to assure there are actually choices on the ballot. Simply placing a tax extension on the ballot is not the solution to getting us out of this mess. We must have reforms, otherwise they will be back again with their hand out for more when those tax extensions expire.
