In August, the Blue Ridge Court School at the Juvenile Treatment Center (JTC) in South Lake Tahoe, was awarded a $5,000 grant from the Barton Foundation. The grant will help the program address mental health and substance use issues that are prevalent among the students. These young people have overcome the effects of adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) that have created complex and serious mental health and related physical health issues. The Barton Foundation annually awards grants to non-profit organizations.

Gold Rush Pioneer James Sanderson Russell Journals from 1861 to 1930

[Linda McBeath Van Gundy] Writes:

"Here is a little information regarding my  El Dorado pioneer, James Sanderson Russell. Came to EDC when he was 19 and died there in 1930. Russell record his activities and events in the area (Sweetwater Creek, Rescue) for 69 years (1861-1930). He writes of local, state and national events.  Because he was one of the last of the early California pioneers he was interviewed often in his later life by reporters throughout California. I have been able to document his life thoroughly.  A very fun and educational project!"

"To put rumors to rest, my wife and I recently purchased the lot. For years, we have tried to purchase the property where Gold Vine and the storage lockers are located [Somerset at E16 & Bucks Bar/Grizzly Flat road]. Our goal was to completely get rid of the storage lockers, greatly improve the building and give it a beautiful mountain feel. The owners did not want to sell.
