Supervisor Ranalli said, "a community meeting for outreach on upcoming hazardous tree removal projects along Hwy 193 and Hwy 49."  He adds, "the South Fork American River Cohesive Strategy group is working on a 'Chili Bar to Georgetown' fuel reduction project(s)... It made sense to include the Fire Safe Councils and the County OES, Disaster Preparedness, and Animal Services presentations to round out the opportunity to demonstrate the cooperative efforts."

Fresh Fruits on Pleasant Valley road to Brag About

by Placerville Newswire / Aug 16, 2018 / comments

I drove by a Farm and fresh produce stand on Pleasant Valley road that a friend had bragged about having strawberries to die for...  Well with that kind of review I had to stop.  It was as good as claimed, if not better.  We got strawberries, blackberries, cucumbers, and more. The lady did not speak great English, but I could tell right away that she loved her fruits.  She understood our questions and knew what we wanted.  She handled and looked at the fresh fruits and vegetables like they were her works of love that she was sharing with us. Not like a standard retail transaction.
