Card of Thanks

Dear Mariposa County Board of Supervisors: I wanted to express huge and sincere thanks to the Mariposa County Board of Supervisors for sending me their deep sympathies and condolences on the death of my Mama, Radmila Vreca, due to Covid. A Memorial Certificate was sent indicating that, “In whose memory the Board adjourned in tribute and reverence at its meeting […]

Why, Miles, why?

Editor, Did I read this right? Did our “venerated” supervisor Miles Menetrey rip signs down recently, put up by Friends of the Library? Isn’t this a felony or misdemeanor or something?

This was the most organized operation I’ve ever seen, from the parking help to the volunteers watching for any side effects. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. The room was marked with arrows to guide us to each station where we were greeted by […]

Proof is all around

My response to Kim Monson demanding evidence of my opinions and statements is that I will meet with her […]
