Support George Turnboo for Supervisor

EDITOR: I support George Turnboo for the office of El Dorado County Supervisor for District 2. I’ve known George for several years, and have complete confidence that he is the honest, dedicated, forward-thinking person we want in this office. His love for this county is unquestioned, and his promise to work for the best interests of […]

Turnboo thanks supporters

EDITOR: During my campaign for a seat on the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors, I met so many good people and received their support, as well as the wonderful support from my family members and old and new friends. Your consistent encouragement, steady support, and hard work really touched me, and I thank you […]

Turnboo for District 2 Supervisor

EDITOR: I pledge my support and encourage all who live in District 2 to vote for George Turnboo for their next supervisor; he is and has always been an honest man without and special agendas, he is a small business owner for over 38 years at the same location in the town of El Dorado. […]

Turnboo seeks to unseat Nutting

Tracing his family’s local roots back to before the Gold Rush, George Turnboo, 58 said he “misses the old days.” A longtime resident of Somerset with a business in El Dorado, Turnboo is campaigning to unseat incumbent Ray Nutting as county supervisor in District 2. He met with the Mountain Democrat’s editorial board last Wednesday. […]

Community plan gets chewed up

Planners working on the Diamond Springs and El Dorado Area Mobility and Livable Community Plan must have thought they walked into a buzzsaw at Thursday’s El Dorado County Planning Commission meeting. As they sat in stunned silence, Dan Bolster, the senior transportation planner with the El Dorado County Transportation Commission and Adrian Engel of Echelon Transportation […]

El Dorado, Diamond plans percolating

With traffic flow being the driving force, a plan to enhance the communities of El Dorado and Diamond Springs is in the process of being drafted by the El Dorado County Transportation Commission.

Called the Diamond Springs and El Dorado Area Mobility and Livable Community Plan, the document not only addresses options for improving traffic circulation in the area, but also population growth, jobs and cityscape issues such as sidewalks, landscaping, bike paths and crosswalks with an eye for how those communities may look 10 to 20 years from now.

Landslide for Ray

Incumbent Supervisor Ray Nutting ran out of champagne for all of his supporters at his election party Tuesday night before he gave a toast to his campaign before about 40 people, including Louis Mansour and Sheriff John D’Agostini in the back room of Crepe Town in Burke Junction in Cameron Park. The party was jointly […]

Mik spent 5 grand to Knight’s 21k

Ron “Mik” Mikulaco spent a little more than $5,000 to run for and win the El Dorado County District 1 seat in Tuesday’s election, while incumbent Supervisor John Knight spent $21,000. According to the county’s “Semi-Official Election Night Final Report,” Mikulaco was leading incumbent John Knight by a margin of 53 percent to approximately 46.5 […]

Mikulaco unseats Knight

The results are in. Hard work, enthusiasm, a firm handshake and a broad smile all won Tuesday. Hours on the side of the road waving signs, miles walked, doors knocked and hands shaken in dozens of neighborhoods paid off for victorious District 1 supervisor candidate Ron Mikulaco. Very early Wednesday morning the groggy victor pulled […]

Due diligence and the BOS

EDITOR: This year, or election cycle, I decided to do what I have never done before in a local election and that is I decided to attend every single meeting, speech, town hall and local event I could find where the candidates were invited to speak and to take questions. As a resident of El […]

General Plan: Public grumpy over ‘scoping’

El Dorado County officials and members of the general public shared a tension-tinged first “scoping session” to discuss the county’s proposed Targeted General Plan Amendment and Zoning Ordinance Update Wednesday night. Meeting at the Union Mine High School library, approximately 40 local residents listened to and questioned nearly a dozen specialists and officials from county […]

Money, power and greed vs. values, integrity and principles

EDITOR: When someone who has worked for and supported a candidate and sitting Supervisor decides they have to make a decision and admit they made a mistake and wasted a lot of valuable time it is not always painless. I had previously supported Ray Nutting with the hopes he would grow into his position as […]

Nutting and Knight backed

Supervisor Ray Nutting is seeking a second term representing District 2, as is Supervisor John Knight for District 1. We credit both with being part of the team that has kept this county in good financial shape. In an era of declining revenue they have tackled the tough decisions, laying off hundreds. Because of their […]

Heard over the back fence: Find those long lost relatives

LOWER YOUR VOICE: 
Reviewing the “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” calendar, the following suggestion was found: “If you make a gentle effort to speak a little more softly, you might discover some surprising, almost instant, changes in the feelings around your home. You, for example, will feel calmer and less stressed. As you quiet down […]

Supervisorial candidates vie for EDH Tea Party support

The Tea Party Patriots of El Dorado Hills’ candidate forum last week included El Dorado County Supervisorial Districts 1 and 2. Both races have a standing supervisor running for reelection opposed by a single candidate. The similarities stop there, however. In El Dorado Hills-centric District 1, the incumbent, longtime local resident and activist John Knight is opposed […]

Help the Winkler children

EDITOR: We’ve heard and seen in recent news about the death of Cameron Park resident Rachel Winkler, the mother of three small children. Her death is being investigated, but during this time, the children (from infant to age 6) are without either parent. I cannot even imagine how frightened those children must be, and all I […]

County expanses impress Japanese students

Those excited-looking Japanese teenagers you might have spotted running around El Dorado County last week were part of the 2011 sister city youth exchange hosted by members of the El Dorado County chapter of People to People International. Members swap students and good will with families from other countries. The 2011 youth exchange brought 16 […]
