At the Municipal Advisory Council’s meeting, Christy Amaral from Stanislaus County explained the county is charging for the use of barriers because of the budget cuts. The History and Museum Associates put barriers out for no parking on one side of the road for the Peddler’s Faire and were being charged this year. She told that at the next Board of Supervisors meeting they will vote on closing the County Libraries on Fridays and cutting the staff in the Sheriff’s Department. Ramon Martinez from the United States Department of Fish and Wildlife presented pictures on the Honolulu Bar Floodplain Enhancement Project. Heather Wright from the U.S. Army Corp Parks told they have a contract for a Sheriff to patrol the East Stanislaus parks on the weekends and holidays for the summer. David Voortman spoke on rafting.

It was a beautiful day for the Peddler’s Faire last Sunday. Over 80 dealers spread their antiques, collectables and crafts out for the shoppers and lookers. The Odd Fellows served breakfast and a shuttle service allowed for town parking and less walking. The Knights Ferry History and Museum Associates sponsored this in cooperation with Stanislaus River Parks. The proceeds from the event will go towards finishing re-siding Miller’s Hall, two sides are done and the third is in the process. Both stairways have been redone.
