Mother Lode Fair needs sponsors, community support

    Faced with a state budget deficit of $25 billion, Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed cuts are deep, wide and ever closer to home.
    Among the most potentially painful here is a plan to slash all state funding from California’s 80 county and district fairs. Yes, the move would save the state $32 million. But it could financially hamstring more than two dozen fairs, including Sonora’s.
    If Brown’s cuts are enacted, the Mother Lode Fair would take a $200,000 hit.
 Although funding for this year’s July 7-10 fair is safe, beginning in 2012 the event could lose about a third of its $600,000 budget.

Supervisors set realistic, achievable goals for 2011

    As everyone involved with a business, a government agency or even a family knows, setting goals is a lot easier than reaching them.
 But if you set the wrong goals — be they unrealistic, impractical or unachievable — all that results is wasted effort.
 To Tuolumne County’s credit, it has set reachable, sensible 2011 goals tailored to today’s struggling economy and to our thinly stretched government budgets.
    Building out the ambitious Law and Justice Center off Old Wards Ferry Road is not on the list. Nor is purchase of a fleet of new sheriff’s patrol cars or paving Italian Bar Road.
