Chick Days is an informational day for people from our area to learn about chicks and chickens, sponsored by Oakhurst Feed & Pet Supply in Oakhurst. This is the second year that Coarsegold 4-H members have been a part of this event.
This will also be their annual meeting, offering the public a chance to meet the board of directors and network with local business colleagues, while enjoying some free hot dogs.
Businesses are invited to bring rack cards and business cards in advance of the open house to fill up the racks at the new office.
On most weekdays during the early "rush hour," William (Bill) Briggs endured the occasional middle-finger salute in exchange for the more common honks and hellos he received for his trouble.
COARSEGOLD - We've lived here more than eight years now, near family who've been in the foothills almost forty years. Not a week goes by that we don't somehow express our joy at living in a small town, sometimes shaking our heads at the closeness of it all. Yesterday, around 4 p.m., I was reminded that we came here from a small town, too, when the afternoon news on ABC said that a plane had crashed at Penmar Golf Course in Venice, California.
Wait, what? That's OUR golf course!
COARSEGOLD - Have you noticed something calling to you mysteriously, something that just won't quit? Susanne Waite of Coarsegold had that feeling for years, everytime she cruised past one very old, seemingly abandoned oak tree on Trabuco Road. This particular once-glorious oak was being steadily overtaken by a parasitic enemy in the form of mistletoe. So Waite set out to rectify the situation.
"I tried to cut out the mistletoe from a 'neighborhood' tree on Trabuco Road that was laden with it and it was killing it," explains Waite.
"For years I've driven by thinking, 'I'm going to get that mistletoe down someday,' and this was the year. It's at the sharp turn where the mailboxes are set next to it."
