So this weekend there are two great events in Sierra City, Oso Blue is performing at Sorocco’s from 4 to 7 p.m. at Wine in the Woods, a fundraiser for Sierra Co SAR and Sierra City VFD, meanwhile starting at 6 p.m. is the BBQ at Kentucky Mine Museum Ampitheater followed by the Music at the Mine show Achilles Wheel. Support the SCFVD and SCSAR have a glass of wine and then go support and enjoy to the BBQ and Show at Music At the Mine.
August is going to be a busy busy month, we start off with the Downieville Downhill Bike Races August 3rd to 6th and then Plumas-Sierra County Fair begins August 9th to the 13th in Quincy, as always be there or be square, this is fun local fair for us all. Downieville Brewfest Saturday August 12th and the next up is the ECV Clampers Weekend in Downieville August 26th to 27th.
Local news and events are here, Gabby gives a science lesson, Carol shares her photos, Columnists Ali King, Kathy Kelly, Andrew Moss, Robert Byers and Mel Gurtov weigh in on the things we need to know and think about. Watching world news is fairly dismaying and makes one wonder how we got to this place, I mean really don’t you just want to bury your head in the sand and pretend all is well. Don’t do that – things are not going well at all unless of course you are corporate status with mega millions or an individual who has made big bucks over the backs of the disadvantaged and marginalized, there is no one I know in Sierra County who fits in with the Trump crew and yet he is supported by those who need fair government for all the most, well actually we all need fair government, led by representatives who understand government’s role in society and it isn’t to make the rich richer, it is to make sure we all get a fair deal without favoritism to cronies and the wealthy. The problems we face aren’t because we care and help those who need assistance, it’s because we get in the way of those who want more for themselves at the expense of a healthy world with the ability to obtain liberty and freedom for al. The future of being great is not gained by turning on each other. So please keep paying attention and question authority and when something is happening that just isn’t right speak up please.
Darcy White’s said her gorgeous photo was taken in “Sam White’s beautiful flower garden”. Sam is Darcy’s Dad and deserves the praise for raising beautiful flowers and wonderful kids (of course Mom, Joyce, was equally responsible for the great kids).
