Bill and Ellen Wearin have had visitors from Missouri this summer. Ellen’s niece Allison, her husband Caleb and children Huxley and Roland came out for a visit.

At the Knights Ferry MAC meeting, Angela Freitas, Director, and Josh Mann from Stanislaus County Planning Department presented site modification of the historical zoning for Knights Ferry (also La Grange). They have made a new minimum parcel size map due to water and sewage concerns. In the Historical Site District, an area has been designated for 20,000 square feet parcels serviced by public water and septic tanks (if you have a private well and septic tank it is one acre).

Outside of that area the minimum parcel size shall be five acres.

They will present maps at a later meeting. Watch this column for time and place. Also at the MAC meeting, David Voortman reported that the rafting parking areas have had cars broken into and things stolen. In just a short time they smash and grab. His rafting company has hired guards for the area. The MAC also approved Ed Fortuny’s plans for an ag building.
