It’s not a crime to be homeless in Placerville, but where the homeless congregate the crime rate is soaring.

That’s the word from police Chief Scott Heller who Tuesday night persuaded the City Council to approve the idea of locating a police substation in the troubled shopping center where Grocery Outlet and the Dollar Tree store anchor the complex on upper Broadway.

Downsizers are getting younger, smarter sooner

I don’t know about you, but I am not getting any older. Despite all evidence to the contrary — that not one but two of my kids who were just in car seats a few minutes ago are in college, that my skin suddenly has about as much rebound as a 20-year-old bathing suit and […]

Bass Lake Road: No improvements likely anytime soon

Bass Lake Road area residents and developers again came up short on Tuesday Nov. 12, when the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors quashed efforts to redesign Development Agreements it signed with the county a decade or more ago.

My turn: Wolves, coming soon to a town near you

With 25 plus years as a California Department of Food Agriculture biologist I learned much about invasive species and “endangered species”… but not nearly enough about maneuvering the minefield of politics. To start with, the nature of political agenda coupled with true science is an oxymoron; it’s like trying to invent the floating anchor. Science is […]

A window of opportunity could soon close

Some El Dorado Hills homebuyers could soon miss out if they don’t act. Let me explain. For years now the United States Development Agency has offered “Rural Development” loans designed to help home buyers in “rural” areas throughout the United States.

California Rambling: Snowmaking makes season sooner and longer

Snow began falling three weeks ago at Lake Tahoe.  You say you missed it?  Well, you had to visit Heavenly Mountain Resort or the Northstar California Resort at night, to see their snowmaking machines begin spraying snow into the air as manmade powder.

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — A hidden safe that was found during renovation of the former Bill’s Lake Tahoe building could be opened as soon as this week, said Mike Laub, the building’s owner.

The Weekly Daley: Life after Iowa

So the post-Iowa hype has instantaneously evolved into the pre-New Hampshire hype. Other than the presidential campaign there doesn’t appear to be anything else going on in our world. Oh, Super Bowl of course, but whatever happened to that ISIS thing that was all “front page” not so long ago? And although the stock market […]

D’backs fall to Cordova

EL DORADO — Union Mine compiled a brief symphony Tuesday, only to let it become a pile of sour notes. The Diamondbacks will remember a 50-40 loss to Cordova for the wrong reasons. A night to honor the team’s eight seniors for their final home game saw UM hold a one-point lead at the end of […]

Progress continues in repairing the Esmeralda Tunnel with an update on what’s been accomplished provided to the El Dorado Irrigation District Board of Directors at its Jan. 25 meeting.

Billingsley’s Bullets: Learning from the little ones

Recently my 2 1/2-year-old great-granddaughter Daisy came into the living room and saw my infected hand bandaged from fingertips to elbow.

Source of groundwater contamination near South Tahoe’s ‘Y’ remains a mystery

Adam Jensen SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — An investigation into contaminated groundwater near South Lake Tahoe’s “Y” intersection has been unable to determine the source of a potentially harmful solvent discovered in the area in 2014.

Habits of daily living for an orderly home

Several months ago, right after DC and I bought a house and got engaged on the same day, and after I pinched myself into reality, the cold fact hit me that my four years of living a clean, well-ordered, show-home-ready, go-ahead-and-open-any-cabinet-because-its-perfect-and-everything-is-where-I-want-it lifestyle was about to change. I panicked. Sure, as we began to meld our […]
