Proponents of last year’s ballot Measure O made a final, unsuccessful run at getting the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors to redraw Community Region Boundaries at the board’s Feb. 24 meeting.

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 […]

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.

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. Manmade snow is not a new idea, though it seems remarkable in […]

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.

Publisher’s Ink: To the back of the bill Mr. Hamilton!

It’s nice to see our federal government hard at work tackling worrisome financial issues.

Riches of the river include more than gold

It didn’t take the eagle flying overhead to convince tour goers that this is an incredibly remarkable part of the world, this river flowing through Coloma past the site where gold was discovered in 1848.

Publisher’s Ink: Got water? I’ll drink to that.

As Ag Tours go, this year’s topic and agenda was most enlightening. Attendance was a tad lower than previous Ag Tours I’ve attended. This was likely the result of including only one wine-related venue on the tour. Participation always seems to increase in direct proportion to the number of wineries visited. This year’s theme “Got […]
