Frank Stephens' Thoughts on Trump becoming President of the United States

by Placerville Newswire / Jan 21, 2017 / comments

If nothing else comes of his presidency but the killing off of dynastic politics and ending the media sense of self-importance, he will have accomplished much for which we can be thankful.

Perhaps with the citizen uprising that collapsed unethical party leadership in both the Republican and Democratic parties we will see a more honest leadership arise. The deep seated issue for Democrats to contend with is there is no leadership now in their seriously fractured party.

SHINGLE SPRINGS -- A 16 year old Ponderosa High School Student was arrested and charged with murdering his relative Thursday after deputies say they found a body at his home and a loaded handgun in his possession on campus.
