A tribute to Pioneer

Editor,To those of you on the front lines,Who make sure we are fed,Who stand three feet away from nearly every person in Mariposa,We thank you.

Wow! What a wonderful community we have in Mariposa. After the loss of Sgt. Salome Williams you all came together to help raise money for his pregnant widow, Tabitha, and their children. Watching the support pour in was absolutely humbling. Words will never be enough to thank you. With the help of fundraisers from Pizza Factory and 1850 Restaurant + […]

Shame on the county

Editor, Shame on the county for forcing the Detwiler Fire victims out of their trailers.

What about all the properties where the owners seem to think it is […]

Sometimes it takes a little longer but as life progresses the equality gets increasingly out of balance. By the time we arrive at the “senior citizen” level, many differences are quite evident. More recently, it seems […]

Losing the American dream

Editor, The American dream is to own your own home, raise your children and retire in peace. What is not a part of this dream is a natural disaster. The Detwiler Fire devastated our county leaving 63 families homeless. To this day some of our county residents have not been able to rebuild. They are living in travel trailers on […]

We fail to understand how supposedly kind, caring, intelligent people could treat disaster victims this way. This is wrong. Shame on you all. Roy and Laurel DavisMariposa … An […]

Don’t retire, Dennis

Editor, Just a note of appreciation to Dennis Fiske and the north county road crew. These folks maintain a lot of challenging turf with limited manpower, and through the years, Dennis has always been responsive to citizen input. Despite their heavy schedule, an issue recently brought to their attention was immediately addressed and corrected, much appreciated. We gotta talk this […]
