Rim Fire: No News?


Posted by Annie in Twain Harte News on August 27, 2013

The smoke is so thick you can cut it will a knife.  Makes it hard to breath and literally to catch a breath.  If you don’t have air conditioning and you can’t get out of the smoke, wet a rag and tie it around your face, it will allow you to breath without getting the ash particles in your lungs.  Drink lots of water.

Reports are that 179,000 have burned, I’m still waiting for the news sites online to catch up.  It’s so frustrating that the search engines are filtering out information about the fire.  In fact, channel 10 reported they are having trouble getting access.  Just our transparent government at work again.

I live right here and I’m having trouble getting news on the Rim Fire.  They have called in the feds and FEMA is at the helm, so you can be sure to get less news, not more.  Why don’t they have regular updates on channel 8?  After all this is community news.  My Motherlode is doing an admirable job of trying to keep people informed but depending on the writer, you have to read between the lines.  One of their writers had me so upset after read one story, I was scared stiff.  It’s important to consider the source and I take everything I read at My Motherlode with a grain of salt.
