County needs animal shelter

Editor, I was very disappointed in the sheriff’s department in the heat of the day at the parade walking that poor dog on the hot pavement. It is bad enough that the county has a kill impound facility where very few dogs and almost no cats have a chance to get adopted. People are allowed to call and make a […]

Real ID is a real nightmare

Editor, Two weeks ago I went to the Department of Motor Vehicles to get the REAL ID necessary to travel via commercial airlines and/or enter federal buildings after October 2020, per the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief, Pub.L. 109–13, 119 Stat. 302. However I ran into an enormously expensive legal issue […]

Seuss will be missed

Editor, You may have seen the article from the Union Democrat that Ms. Mary Seuss was involved in a motorcycle accident that took her life over the weekend. Mary was signed up as one of our rodeo queen contestants but had to drop out of the contest due to some conflicts that she had with school. Mary was the 2017 […]

Sad day for local business

Editor, Oct. 25, 2019, will be a sad and upsetting day here in Mariposa when Yosemite Treats closes their doors. These ladies opened their doors five years ago to bring this community the best Blue Bunny ice cream, cakes, cookies, yogurt, coffee and so much more. Like some of the others in Mariposa, they’ve made it through fires and government […]

No more wilderness in county

Editor, I am writing in response to the front page article in the Aug. 1 issue of the Mariposa Gazette concerning the California Wilderness Coalition’s request to weigh in on the U.S. Forest Service plan and ask for more protection of the 46,298 area of Devil Gulch-Ferguson Ridge. This group, also known as Cal Wild, is attempting what has already […]

What is the truth, Mr. Long?

Editor, On Sept. 4, 2019 Supervisor Marshall Long, host of Mariposa County Updates, told viewers “…there is nothing sealed. All of the information about what has been going on with Bison Creek Ranch LLC ( Jerry Cox) can be obtained through Mariposa County records at the Building Department, Health Department, Planning Department — all those records are available — also […]

Pioneer Market of Mariposa donates 1 percent of its sales receipts to the SPCA. Save your receipts and drop them off at the SPCA. Thank you, Pioneer Market. Also, […]

Card of Thanks

 This year the Mariposa County Fair was a huge success for students showing livestock. Over 50 students participated with the Mariposa FFA, and the auction was immensely rewarding for many of our thankful members. We would like to thank the community for always supporting the junior livestock auction. Unfortunately, due to the Newcastle disease, no FFA students were able to […]

The sides are talking

Editor, In order to solve the problem we’re having with the slaughter of innocent people, we must pass a law to eliminate the Second Amendment. This is the only way to get a yes vote in Congress. Unfortunately, they vote no. I’m a gun owner and won’t give them up. This is a play to get the yest vote. After […]
