placerville: One of the Best "Family" Parks in El Dorado County - 03/30/08 12:52 PM
A leisurely 20 minute drive from hwy50 and Missouri Flat road will get you to Pioneer Park. This 21 acre park has something for every member of the family. And one of the things I like the most is that; it is far enough out of town that never seems to be "crowded" and close enough in so it does not have to be a "day" trip. It truly is in my opinion a "community" Park. Located in Somerset it offers;
Equestrian Arena - should you want to bring your horse.
Basketball Court - Full court and fenced

Bus fee increase slated
For Mother Lode Union
By Charlotte Sanchez-Kosa
Democrat staff writer
An increase in bus fee for the Mother Lode Union School District was approved by trustees during their March meeting. The fees, which will go into effect at the start of school next year, are the result of higher costs for fuel, services and goods. District Chief Financial Officer Cathy Schmidt said school officials hate having the public foot the bill for an increase but like many districts, state funding has been reduced.

placerville: Tips for HIRING A CONRACTOR - 03/20/08 09:36 AM
WOW, I read this the other day and it just confirms what I have been advising my clients for years. Read this article that was printed in the local paper just 2 days ago

Question - How do I find the right licensed contractor?
