President Obama in Tahoe to address Lake Tahoe Summit, Highlighting Environmental Record

0
0

[By Louisa Loveluck]  President Obama will address the annual Lake Tahoe Summit at the end of this month, the White House confirmed Monday, in a move intended to help cement his legacy as a reformer on environmental issues.

The Aug. 31 event will take place on the Nevada lake's South Shore, a backdrop the president's remarks will focus on as he underscores a commitment to addressing climate change and preserving the country's natural treasures for future generations.

"President Obama has made these issues a priority for his administration, and looks forward to discussing how we can continue to work towards a solution," White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz said in a statement...

Local "Generation Green" Works to Protect over 100 Archeological Sites Exposed by Trailhead and King Fires

0
0

[Tricia Caspers of the Auburn Journal] "After the King Fire devoured close to 75,000 acres near Pollock Pines, at least 100 archeological sites were uncovered"

GENERATION GREEN

While the U.S. Forest Service is gathering information from the archaeological site at the Trailhead fire, they are also taking measures to protect it. To that end, Generation Green, a team of 27 high school students from the El Dorado County area were put to work covering the site with brush to hide it from passersby and create shade to encourage new growth.

The young men and women of Generation Green attended a kind of boot camp together in the Desolation Wilderness and spent eight weeks of the summer with various departments of the Forest Service. In addition to their work at the archaeological site, they learned about soil science, biology and botany. They planted trees, moved boulders, and learned to look out for each other. Each participant is paid between $10 and $12 an hour, according to Audrey Evans, youth conservation crew coordinator.

At the end of the summer, each high school student is required to give a short speech about who they were when they began, how they’ve changed, and where they want to go.

“They’ve all grown as leaders,” Evans said. “They’ve learned how to work as a team and how to communicate.”

LOOTERS BEWARE

The U.S. Forest Service is currently monitoring the archeological site in the area of the Trailhead Fire. The site is protected under law, and fines for removing artifacts from an archaeological site range between $20,000 and $100,000. Those who are interested in volunteering in archeological research are welcome to apply for the Passport program: Passportintime.com.

There’s a mystery hidden in the woods. Buried beneath the overgrowth of evergreens, oaks and Manzanita of the Eldorado National Forest, no one is certain how many years the mystery has been there, waiting to be revealed.

A firefighter found the first clue last June. As a forward observer among the charred trunks of trees and the scorched soil of the Trailhead Fire, he found something out of place in the mountains: a round river cobble.

He thought it might be a handstone, a rock smoothed by its many years held in the palms of the Native Americans who might have used it to grind seeds.

As it turned out, the stone was evidence of something else entirely.

Stone presents a puzzle

While battling against a powerful blaze like the Trailhead Fire, firefighters work closely with a team of archaeologists, biologists, botanists and geologists to ensure that as firelines are bulldozed, nothing of the land is destroyed that can’t be replaced.

A wildfire is like a monster, ravaging every leaf and twig on every tree in its path to feed its voracious hunger. A wildfire will even sear the roots in the soil, leaving nothing behind but gray and lifeless dust.

It does something else, though, too: It tells the forest’s secrets.

After a fire picks every branch clean and the smoke clears, the sun shines brightly again on tools and trinkets, artifacts left behind by people who disappeared long ago.

After the King Fire devoured close to 75,000 acres near Pollock Pines, at least 100 archaeological sites were uncovered, according to Jordan Serin, an archaeologist with the U.S. Forest Service.

That’s why firefighters are trained in the off-season to spot any possible artifacts – maybe a rounded stone or maybe a pile of tin cans – and that’s how the forward observer knew to pass his Trailhead Fire discovery along to the team of archaeologists.

They took it from there.

Charles Hutcheson was the first archaeologist to see a photo of the possible artifact, and he passed the information on to Dorit Buckley who, after the fire had been wrangled, made the trek out to the location of the where it was found. She knew right away that it wasn’t a handstone – it didn’t have the right markings – but it was a river cobble, an unusual find on the ridge of a mountain.

“You would think … that people had to have moved it there,” Serin said.

In fact, there’s a geological explanation for how river-smoothed stones ended up atop a mountain.

A long time ago, but not so far away

Sometime during the Tertiary, between 2.6 million and 66 million years ago – the exact date of the ancestral gold-bearing river gravels is a subject of much debate among geologists and miners – volcanic material was erupting like popcorn in a pot without a lid, choking the rivers that were here until they formed new river channels traveling in different directions.

To a miner, ancient river cobbles on a mountaintop mean one thing: Gold. When the Gold Rush miners all but exhausted the gold to be found along the flowing rivers, they realized more gold could be found at the rivers’ sources, dry places where the rivers ran all those years ago, where layers of volcanic debris had trapped the gold.

When Buckley saw the river cobbles burned clean by the Trailhead Fire, she suspected that she was standing on an old mining site. The question was how old. She called for backup.

That’s where Jordan Serin stepped in. As the lead archaeologist on the King Fire, Serin was familiar with historical mining sites and their potential for telling the story of the Gold Rush. He arrived at the undisclosed location of the Trailhead Fire “arc site,” saw the torched remains of what to the untrained eye might appear to be scattered scrap metal, a pile of tin cans, and a mound of stones, and he was thrilled.

He knew instantly that what he was seeing was the evidence of ground sluicing, mining technology hundreds of years old. Could this site be as old as the 1850s, the days when this “poor man’s” method was most popular?

Ground sluicing: what is it?

Ground sluicing begins with an ancient river bed, a ridge, and a source of water. In the rainy season, miners might dig a ditch, use scraps of metal and gravity to divert water from a stream, forcing it to flow over the edge of a hillside. Down slope, miners worked with shovels, picks and their bare hands, shaving away the soil one scoop at a time with the help of the water flow. The cobbles that came loose in the digging were tossed into piles, called tailings, some in parallel mounds, some in a herringbone formation. The remaining gravels were then processed with a ground sluice where the bottom is either paved with cobbles that create riffles to trap the gold or lined with sluice boxes, long boxes with running water that carried the lighter material away from the reason they were all out there: nuggets, flakes, glimmering treasure.

A ‘scatter’ provides clues

In a separate area of the nearly 6-acre site is where Serin found another kind of treasure: an artifact scatter. This is what most people would call a pile of trash. But this rubbish heap is what Serin and Hutcheson examined to get a glimpse into the past and figure out who these miners were and at what time in history they were sloughing off the edge of this mountain.

An archaeologist can tell a lot from a tin can that once possibly held Folgers coffee grounds or Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. Whether it took a key wind, had a cone top or required a church key to open all depended on the year the can was made. Even the seams and measurements of a container tell a story....

'Gunmageddon' restrictions face referenda drive & vaccines fight continues

0
0

If the signing of seven new firearms restrictions last month was the "gunmageddon," as California gun rights activists put it, then this is the scene where they suit up in preparation for a dangerous mission to stop the giant asteroid hurtling toward Earth.

They recently filed referenda in hopes of overturning all of the new laws, and the petition drive to qualify those measures for the ballot kicks off today. If they can collect nearly 366,000 signatures for each referendum by the end of the September (or Oct. 20, for one that was filed later), the laws will likely go before voters in November 2018, suspending them for at least two years.

Among the new laws, which would otherwise take effect next Jan. 1, are a required background check for ammunition purchases, a prohibition on the possession of magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds, a ban on semi-automatic rifles with magazines that can be detached with the push of a button, and registration of homemade firearms.

IN OTHER LEGAL NEWS: Opponents of last year's controversial law mandating vaccines for schoolchildren, which took effect on July 1, are in a federal courtroom in San Diego at 1:30 p.m. seeking a preliminary injunction against the rule while their broader lawsuit – claiming it was unconstitutional to repeal the state's religious and personal exemptions for vaccinations – proceeds. Their efforts to reverse the law via referendum and recall its author, Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, have already failed.

U.S. Rep McClintock speaks on Debt, Water

0
0

[By: Penne Usher] The National Debt and our state’s water issues were two hot topics discussed by U.S. Rep Tom McClintock.

“The National Debt is the greatest threat to our national security,” he said at  a recent gathering of  El Dorado Hills Chamber members.

McClintock, R-Elk Grove, who represents District 4, had a lot to say about the country’s overspending and our lack of water.

“Spending is out of control,” he said.

The National Debt is at $20 trillion and growing, he said. In 10 years there won’t be funding for Medicare and Social Security will be bankrupt in 17 years if “we stay on the same trajectory,” McClintock said.

He said without funding the country will no longer be able to provide for defense.

“This contentious place in our history,” he said.

The National Debt is growing at such a rate that in six years all the US will be able to pay is the interest.

McClintock said that “entitlement programs” cost $1 trillion a year. Examples of entitlement programs are Medicaid, welfare, food stamps and unemployment compensation.

“It’s eating us,” he said of the spending.

Water, and not necessarily the lack of, is a clear hot-bed issue in California.

McClintock expressed his deep concern that no dam has been built since the 1970s that would help in storing the necessary water for a state that has doubled in population since that time.

He said droughts are Mother Nature; not having enough water is simply a lack of common sense and planning.

He used the Sugar Pine Reservoir, in Foresthill, as an example of not only a lack of planning.

When the reservoir was originally built the community didn’t need to store the water and therefore did not add a gate to hold water back. Now, with growth, a gate is needed....

Cool Cat Kills Pony says Department of Fish and Wildlife

0
0

400-pound pony found dead in community of Auburn Lake Trails.  California Department of Fish and Wildlife warden later determined that it was a mountain lion.

[Image -- Big Cats On Prowl in Georgetown: Tami Sutton posted this picture on "‎What's happening on the Divide?" a facebook website dedicated to events and happenings on the Georgetown Divide.]

The 400-pound pony was found dead Tuesday morning in the community of Auburn Lake Trails, the property owners association said in an email sent out to residents.  A state biologist initially thought a bear attacked the horse, but a California Department of Fish and Wildlife warden later determined that it was a mountain lion.

A federal tracker went out to the area Thursday to track the mountain lion.

"The cat took down a 400 pound pony quickly and probably will not hesitate to take down a smaller animal or person," the association said.  People are warned to be careful with animals and children and to be aware of their surroundings.

What to do if you encounter a mountain lion; often known as cougars, pumas or panthers, to protect yourself and your children from a fatal attack.

If you spot a mountain lion while out in the wilderness, awareness of a mountain lion's proximity to you, and its behavior, may save you from a potentially dangerous situation if you are prepared to respond appropriately.

Mountain Lion Proximity and Behavior

If you see a mountain lion:

-100 yards away or more that is unattentive to you;

  • Avoid rapid movements, running, loud, excited talk.
  • Stay in groups; keep children with adults.
  • Probability of risk is slight, provided your response is appropriate.

-50 yards away with its ears up and attentive to you;

  • Hold small children; keep older children close to an adult.
  • Do not turn your back.
  • Look for sticks, rocks or other weapons and keep them at hand.
  • Watch the cat at all times.
  • Probability of attack is slight for adults given proper response.
  • Probability of attack is serious for unaccompanied children.

-less than 50 yards away, staring intensely at you, or hiding;

  • All of the above steps, plus place older children behind adults.
  • Seek a safer location, or one above the lion, if available.
  • Do not run.
  • Appear larger. Raise arms, objects, or jackets above your head.
  • Prepare to defend yourself.
  • Probability of attack is substantial.

-intensely staring, crouching and/or creeping toward you;

  • Take all the above actions.
  • Moving slowly, position trees, boulders or other large objects between yourself and the lion.
  • Do not lose sight of the lion.
  • Smile! Show your teeth. (A woman attacked at Cuyamaca Rancho State Park may have saved herself by baring her teeth, growling and staring the lion down as it approached her).
  • Make loud, menacing sounds, like yelling and growling.
  • Throw things if the lion is close enough to hit.
  • Use lethal weapons if you have them.
  • Pepper spray may be effective if lion is downwind and close enough.
  • Probability of risk is serious if within 200 yards.

-poised to attack;

  • Prepare to defend yourself in close combat
  • Fight back.
  • Make menacing noises.
  • Keep eye contact with the cat.
  • Act aggressively toward the lion.
  • Use a stick to charge the lion, thrusting the stick toward its face.
  • No stick? Yell loud and run toward the lion with arms high.
  • Stay beyond striking distance of its paws.

 

>>>> Points to Remember <<<<

  • ALWAYS keep children in your sight, and preferably in reach.
  • Group together so you'll be less interesting as potential prey.
  • Without kneeling, pull a small child up on your shoulders to appear larger, to keep the cat from herding its target from the group, and to keep the child from running.
  • Gather older children closely around you.
  • Do not allow children to wander far from adults.
  • Instruct children to fight back if attacked.
  • Instruct children not to run, crouch or turn their backs.
  • The high pitched voices, rapid movements and small size of children may attract a nearby lion.

 

Campsite Safety

  • Do not feed deer, raccoons or other animals that are common lion prey.
  • Do not leave pet food out where other wildlife has access to it.
  • Avoid early morning, dusk and night excursions.
  • Call your desitination ahead of time to inquire about lions in the area.

Cash Grant Award offered by Placerville Soroptimists

0
0

[By Soroptimist International Of Placerville] Women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and seek financial assistance to continue their education or receive training can now apply for the Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women (formerly the Soroptimist Women’s Opportunity Awards).

Applications are available at River City Bank, 348 Main St. in Placerville, or by contacting Tanya Moran at (530) 919-4612. The application deadline is Dec. 15.

The Placerville club will provide a $2,500 cash grant to its award recipient, who will then advance to the Soroptimist Sierra Nevada Region level, where recipients could receive up to an additional $5,000. The program culminates with three finalist $10,000 awards.

Recipients can use the Live Your Dream Award to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training. This includes tuition, books, childcare, car fare or any other education-related expense.

The Live Your Dream Award provides more than $1.7 million in cash grants to head-of-household women in need each year. Since the program’s inception in 1972, more than $30 million has helped tens of thousands of women achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families.

A study conducted by the Fels Institute of Government, a research and consulting organization based at the University of Pennsylvania, confirmed the efficacy and impact of this program. It improves the recipients’ quality of life, builds their confidence, strengthens their self-determination and makes them want to help others. Helping women in this way has the demonstrated effect of leading to stronger communities, nations and the world.

Founded in 1939, the Placerville club is part of Soroptimist International of the Americas, a global organization that works to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment.

Placerville members join with almost 80,000 Soroptimists in about 120 countries and territories to contribute time and financial support to community-based projects benefiting women and girls.

Soroptimist, a nonprofit organization that relies on charitable donations to support its programs, also powers LiveYourDream.org — an online community offering offline volunteer opportunities in support of women and girls.

For more information about how Soroptimist improves the lives of women and girls visit soroptimist.org and siplacerville.org or call the message line at (530) 344-1476.

The Divide is in Final Edit

0
0

"The Divide" was filmed last year on, the Divide.  Filming is in the can and now the film is in post-production work.  The producer wrote:

"Hello, friends. We are still plugging away on post-production for The Divide. Editing is winding down and we are closer than ever to a cut we are all very happy with. Thanks for your patience and we can't wait to share it with you!"

"The Divide" is a new film from Perry King, with Jana Brown and Russ Rayburn, set in drought-plagued Northern California in 1976. It chronicles the story of Sam Kincaid, an aging rancher with a failing memory.  Set in drought-plagued Northern California in 1976, The Divide chronicles the story of Sam Kincaid, an aging rancher with a failing memory, his estranged and independent-minded daughter, Sarah, and Luke, a young ranch hand who finds himself in the midst of a family in crisis. Internal struggles, the realities of an unforgiving landscape, and the need to reconcile a long-ago tragedy collide to create the backdrop for this classic American Western.
 
Written by Jana Brown with actor/director Perry King, The Divide was filmed in El Dorado County, Calif., in the summer of 2015. 

About Perry King
Actor/director Perry King has been a fixture in Hollywood for nearly 45 years. He is perhaps best known for his role in the 1980s television series Riptide, on which he played detective Cody Allen. He has appeared in dozens of films, television movies, TV shows, and plays, including The Day After Tomorrow, The Lords of Flatbush, and Slaughterhouse-Five. Perry was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his role in the TV movie The Hasty Heart. He’s been featured in recurring television roles on Melrose Place and Spin City.
 
It was Perry’s role in the 1998 made-for-TV movie The Cowboy and the Movie Star, which co-starred Sean Young, that inspired him to shift gears. Perry says he decided after shooting Cowboy that he wanted to be his character from the film – a rancher seeking solace in his livelihood and his land. Not long after filming the movie, Perry purchased a 500-acre cattle ranch in the Sierra Nevada, splitting his time between the bustle of Los Angeles and the serenity of Northern California. He long dreamt of filming a Western on his own land. The ranch’s location in the heart of Gold Country, known locally as “the divide,” provided the ideal setting for such aspirations.
 
In 2011, Perry met Jana Brown, a writer based in Concord, New Hampshire, and the two developed an immediate collaborative friendship. From that connection came the idea, the development, and the screenplay for The Divide. The script was in development from 2012, until the movie was filmed in the summer of 2015.

Networking Events Are a Waste of Time (Here's the 1 Thing You Should Do Instead)

0
0

The best way you can build your circle of contacts is to create something interesting.  Do the work first and your network will fall in place. 

You don't have the attention of the people you want to know until you've done something worthy of their attention.

[BY MIKAEL CHO] 'It's all about who you know.' Common business advice. I don't doubt the value of knowing the right people, but there's a much better way to build relationships than going to events, meetings, or hitting the 'Connect" button on LinkedIn.

Three years ago, when we were just starting our company, Crew, there were interesting people I wanted to get to know. But many politely brushed me off. I wasn't offended. I realized I hadn't earned their attention. I wanted to meet them because they did something interesting. The problem was I hadn't done anything interesting.

So instead of focusing my energy on fighting for their attention, I focused on making something interesting. I started our company and wrote about our experience along the way. I went to almost no events, took hardly any meetings, and didn't pay attention to LinkedIn. 

Now a few years later, our company is in a much different position. We've been fortunate enough to create two online platforms used by millions of people. And our writing is read by hundreds of thousands of people each month.

Recently, I ran into one of the people who was not interested in meeting in our early days. He told me he followed our work and was amazed. This time though, I didn't have to ask him to meet. He asked me. He had so much enthusiasm about our business, I felt like I was talking to a different person.

Networking for us today has become much easier than networking a few years ago. But this only happened because we focused on our work first. Good work gets you noticed. It makes you standout. Think of the people in your industry you respect. It's almost guaranteed they made something interesting that attracted you to them. Once you're interesting, people want to talk to you. You tip the scale in your favor. The people you want to meet, start to want to meet you.

The beautiful thing about using your work to build your network is it's much more efficient than networking only through events and meetings. You don't have to rush a one-minute pitch to each person...

Closure On Highway 89 At Emerald Bay To Delay Travel Time In Mid-September

0
0

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will perform a full roadway closure of State Highway 89 near South Lake Tahoe from just south of the Cascade Creek Bridge to Bayview Campground and Inspiration Vista Point.

The full roadway closure is scheduled for two weeks beginning Monday, September 12, at 4 a.m. through Friday, September 16, at 4 p.m.; and from Monday, September 19, at 4 a.m. through Friday, September 23, at 4 p.m. During the closure traffic will be allowed to travel through the work zone between 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. Tuesday afternoon through Friday morning. There will be no closure during the weekend from 4 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Monday.

During the time of the full closure, traffic will be detoured to the north and the east side of the lake going into the Nevada. From the north side of the project the detour will take Highway 89 to Tahoe City, then take Highway 28 along the north and east sides of the lake to U.S. Highway 50 South at Spooner Junction to Highway 89 North at South Lake Tahoe. From the south side of the project, traffic will be detoured the opposite direction: Highway 89 south to U.S. 50 north to Highway 28 south and to Highway 89 south.

This work is part of the $13 million Emerald Bay water quality improvement project. The closure is for one portion of the project's cold planning and hot mix asphalt paving work located on a ridge with steep slopes on either side of the roadway immediately adjacent to paved surfacing with steep mountainous terrain and tight switchbacks. In this portion of the project, the paving operations would not be possible with conventional reversing traffic control as larger construction equipment and public vehicles would not physically be able to pass each other. The work is subject to changes due to weather or unexpected events.

The traveling public will be able to access site seeing locations: Vikingsholm, Inspiration Point - Bay View Trail. Expect delays due to One-way traffic control From Inspiration Point to Upper Emerald Bay Road from September 11 through September 23 due to grinding and paving work.

Another Tahoe Bear Killed By Wildlife Officials After Break-Ins At South Lake

Nevada wildlife officers have killed a female bear that had been blamed for home break-ins in the South Lake Tahoe area.

Nevada Department of Wildlife spokesman Chris Healy said Monday the 2-year-old female was shot dead July 28 following a confrontation with a homeowner near Stateline.

Healy says the bear had been captured and fitted with a tracking collar in early May after she was found trying to raid trash bins.

The collar showed she kept returning to residential areas.

Healy says a bear that breaks into occupied dwellings crosses a line and becomes a danger to human safety.

State wildlife officials trapped and euthanized another bear in June after it raided a vehicle and wouldn’t leave an area near a state park visitor’s center at Lake Tahoe’s Sand Harbor.

South Lake Tahoe Councilwoman Conner's lawyer says Settlement is Not 'Finalized' in Suit Against City

0

Jacqueline Mittelstadt, attorney to councilwoman JoAnn Conner, says that she is still “going back and forth” with the City of South Lake Tahoe’s attorney as they work to reach a finalized settlement in her client’s lawsuits against the city.

Mittelstadt took issue with an announcement made by Mayor Wendy David in the Aug. 2 council meeting regarding the settlement, and said the statement was “premature.”

“We do have some reportable action from our closed session [on] JoAnn Conner versus the City of South Lake Tahoe, and we would like to announce that the city and Conner met in mid-June in a mediation session and we reached a settlement agreement in which Conner agreed to dismiss the city in Conner versus the City of South Lake Tahoe with prejudice,” said David on Aug. 2...
