Twain Harte Info Has a New Home!


Posted by Annie in Uncategorized on July 21, 2009

Exciting news, has moved to a new location, with a new look and the best news, it’s interactive, so you can participate too.

The hubby and I have been talking about moving for a long time now and just when I had about given up, Shawn surprises me with a brand new blog on a domain we’ve been sitting on for ages. So, be sure to bookmark this new site. It will have the same Twain Harte content, pictures and information but with an entirely different look and more functionality. I’m so excited.

I invite you to look around¬†and post your comments. Some of you may remember the old Twain Harte Times, it was the predecessor to the Sierra Mountain Times, now owned by our good friend Tim McCaffrey. The Twain Harte Times has been dead for quite sometime now, so we felt it was time for a comeback. I’ll be posting my comments and sharing my adventures as usual. We don’t have the news page moved over yet, but it will soon find a new home here too.

Once the conversion is complete, will be redirected to this new site, until it is sold.

The News in Twain Harte


Posted by Annie in Twain Harte News on December 10, 2008

Rumors tend to run wild in small communities and Twain Harte is no exception. Those who have their ear to the ground will have heard that the Sierra Mountain Times is changing hands beginning the first of the year.

Shawn and I are excited to hear that our dear friend Tim McCaffrey, son of the proprietors of the elegant McCaffrey House Bed & Breakfast Inn, located at 23251 Highway 108, Twain Harte, CA has purchased the local business. Tim was previously the director of advertising while employed with the Twain Harte Times, the precursor to the Sierra Mountain Times.

Congratulations Tim! The Hall family will look forward to the changes Tim is sure to implement at the Sierra Mountain Times.

Wishing all of you mountain folk a very Merry Christmas. The weather now quite nippy, according to the Dodge Ridge website they are preparing to open up the slopes. They are expecting plenty of snow over the next four or five days. Chances are good they could open up at any time. That’s good news for the Christmas Ski Bunnies.

From all accounts business is good for many local merchants but people are cautious about the coming months and are tightening their belts in anticipation of a further economic downturn. On the other hand, there are some terrific bargains to be had this Christmas season. Shop with care…

One last thing, I almost forgot. A few of the surrounding communitities seem to have developed crime waves as the economy has suffered in recent months. Twain Harte residents and vacationers would do well to keep a watchful eye out, just in case vandals and thieves decide to commit their dastardly deeds in our neighborhood.
