Tuolumne County will start on the job of removing 9,000 dead and dying trees that threaten roads, water supplies, and infrastructure this month. The state will pick up most of the cost but there's no help for private homeowners.

Tree removal contractors in Tuolumne County are getting ready to cut and haul away timber that didn't survive the drought. Under an executive order from Governor Jerry Brown, the state will pay 75 percent of the $9 million cost of removal from public land.

Farmers in Nebraska, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and New York are staging something of a mechanical revolt. They're attempting to get legislation passed in their states that would enable them.

At the root of the morass is the software that helps run modern tractors and their sensors, diagnostic tools, and other high-tech elements. If farmers so much as open the metaphorical hood to check out the computers they could be violating the federal act, reports Modern Farmer.

Caltrans contract worker José Bobadilla stood on unshaded asphalt Tuesday afternoon in heat warmer than 90 degrees southeast of Chinese Camp to stop motorists headed farther east up to Groveland and Yosemite.

One-way traffic controls went into effect Tuesday for the $20.8 million project to upgrade James E. Roberts Memorial Bridge on State Route 120 in Tuolumne County, and the traffic controls are expected to remain in place for the duration of the project. Completion is hoped for by Thanksgiving 2017, according to the state Department of Transportation.

With temperatures forecast into the 90's today, I thought it would be a good day to serve up this Confetti Ice Wreath to our chickens. It's not only an excellent way to help your chickens cool down in the summer.

Save up those partial bags of frozen vegetables and leftover canned vegetables. Keep freezer burned fruit and those cranberries left over from Thanksgiving. Don't toss out bruised blueberries or mushy raspberries. Collect everything in a freezer bag until you are ready to make your wreath to make an easy, inexpensive summer treat for your chickens.

A worker at a federal laboratory in Colorado intentionally manipulated test results for years, possibly tainting research that includes toxic metals in the Everglades, uranium near the Grand Canyon and coal in Afghanistan, investigators say.

The falsified data from a U.S. Geological Survey lab may have affected 24 coal, water and environmental research projects costing a total of $108 million, according to a report released recently by the Interior Department's inspector general. USGS spokeswoman Anne-Berry Wade said Thursday the agency isn't sure why the employee falsified the results of chemical analyses but said it wasn't for personal gain or "any nefarious reason."

As the debate over which bathroom an individual should use based on their sexual identity heats up, we are witnessing the ignorant and brash nature of state enforcement of these edicts come to a head.

It is not only a distraction and a means for the state to get involved in your bowel movements, but it paints the trans and gay community in a negative light by asserting there is some sexual stigma involved in relieving one's bladder. The end result of such obstinate legalese clouding the minds of the public is going to be state violence initiated against individuals who have caused zero harm.
