Knights Ferry News for July 1, 2009

POSTED June 30, 2009 4:43 p.m.
At the MAC meeting California Highway Patrol Officer Daniels spoke to the lack of stopping at the stop signs and he has been camping out and the problem seems to be solved. Brian Sutton, Animal Control Officer, told of 14 citations in the area. Raul Mendez, MAC Coordinator for Stanislaus County, told of the time line for elections. There will be two seats open, with Kasandra Ingram giving up her seat because they are moving. No major events were reported by the Sheriff Department. Thanks go out to the Army Corp for hiring a weekend sheriff to help patrol the parks. A report on the T.A.N.C. high power line corridor was given, with a web site, stoptanc.com, for those opposed. Also the North Corridor (Kiernan) was talked about, with a July 23 presentation at the next MAC meeting. This by-pass would empty into the Highway by Lover’s Leap.

Maureen McKibban has returned from visiting her daughter, Kate, and son-in-law Graeme, in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Highlight was the trip to the dump! They do not have municipal garbage service, only private contractors, but they are heavy into recycling. The town dump is really a big recycling center with bins for everything from the different types of glass to books and furniture. Maureen says it was quite an experience. She also went to Plymouth to see Plymouth Rock, which had been moved in 1930 so people could view it up close. They went to Plimoth (old spelling) Plantation where life in the colonies was reenacted. She also helped Kate pick out tile for the renovation on their farmhouse.
