Mandatory Masks? LA Times Lied


Posted by Annie in Political on June 20, 2020

We went to Safeway yesterday, and were told the governor had issued a mandatory mask executive order. We told the manager to read the ADA, and went in to the store, completed our shopping, then checked out at the self-checkout.  We were told we wouldn’t be allowed back in.

Well, we came home and searched the internet.  The governor did NOT order mandatory masks and the LA Times lied.  To make things easier, I’ll let the Healthy American, Peggy Hall explain.

Here is part two of her video. 

I just don’t understand why the media is lying to us?  The only place I’ve seen it reported even close to accurate was China in Focus.  How strange.

Sonora Pass Open


Posted by Annie in Twain Harte News on May 22, 2020

Sonora Pass was closed briefly after the storms, but was opened a couple days later.  To tell you the truth, I’m really surprised they have opened it for Memorial Day.  This is a maximum enforcement weekend though, and the police are out in force. I guess they have to pay for their salary some way.

It’s supposed to by a hot weekend.  Weather reports are saying it could hit 100°F on Monday.  Wow!

The tourists were out in droves today. I hope the local businesses are busy this weekend.

I can’t believe how many people are still wearing masks.  They really do more harm that good and I’ve heard that from more that one prominent physician.   Wearing masks may increase your risk of coronavirus infection, expert says.

People were good about “social distancing,” that wanted social distance.  Many people didn’t seem as scared as they once were, heck I even got a few hugs from willing friends.  Did you know that hugs are actually good for you? Better than masks, no doubt.

Health Benefits of Hugging: The Important Reason Why Your Body Needs A Hug Every Day!

Hugs can boost immunity

“It’s been shown that people who are under stress and in conflict with others are more susceptible to viruses like the common cold. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University set out to determine whether social support, such as hugging, might in turn be protective against such infections.

It turns out their hypothesis was right. Among 404 adults, those who had greater social support and more frequent hugs during conflicts were less likely to “catch” a cold after they were exposed to the virus. The hugs, researchers said, were responsible for about one-third of the protective effect.”  


PG&E are still doing repairs to damaged utility poles around town.

East Avenue is currently closed between Fir Drive and Twain Harte Drive. A detour route is in place. East Avenue will remain closed until the work is completed. It is not immediately clear how long it will take, so you will want to avoid the area.

Memorial Day Events in the Motherlode

At Eproson Park in Twain Harte on Memorial day there will be a Memorial Day Flag Raising Ceremony hosted by VFW Post 4748 Tuolumne and Aaron Rasmussen.
