Driving Speed

EDITOR: Residents driving through St. Andrew’s Village, please slow down. Remember our streets are narrow and there are no sidewalks. We all must share the road: bicycles, dog walkers, strollers, students and older walkers. Surely the consequences of too much speed do not outweigh the few minutes of time that might be saved.

Don’t sign the petition

EDITOR: The usual suspects are at it again. Bill Center and his acolytes — John Hidahl, Ellen Van Dyke, Shiva Frentzen and Howard Penn. These folks are not talking slow growth, they are talking NO GROWTH! What does that mean for El Dorado Hills? Retail businesses with no new business, churches with no new believers, schools […]

Thanks from the Mote family

EDITOR: Thanks to a wonderful community. Last year, two fundraising events were held in honor of our son, Staff Sgt. Sky Mote, and his fallen comrades: The MARSOC Project Black at the Leadman Triathlon in Phoenix, Ariz., and Ride 430 in Scottsdale, Ariz. In both of these events, wounded and active servicemen participated. The local […]
