Supes, public blast SACOG as ‘big brother’

The air in the El Dorado County Supervisors Chambers Tuesday was virtually blue with all the dirty words flying in both directions — from the audience and from members of the board. “Big, intrusive government, globalism, socialism, greed and claim-jumping, United Nations Agenda 21, Sustainable Development,” were all used to describe what began as a […]

Supes give biz park green light

Both sides claimed divine intervention Tuesday during a Board of Supervisors hearing on the proposed Harrington Business Park development in Diamond Springs.
