Lead the way Mik

EDITOR: What does it cost? I have heard so many explanations about how the ballot initiatives are going to be just awful for El Dorado County and how they just might be tolerable.

Chris Amaral for supervisor

EDITOR: The recent Sand Fire demonstrated some huge problems in El Dorado County. So far as I can tell, only one supervisor candidate is talking about a solution.

On April 25, 2014, and again on June 23, 2014, Abercrombie represented to the EID board and public that small farm rate recipients pay $514 per acre foot of EID […]

Painting political messages

EDITOR: Regarding Marian Cias’ comments on painting political messages on the rocks, the last time I checked there are no rules for painting the rocks with whatever message you want to put on them (of course profanity should not be included!).
