With nearly one-fifth of the county over 65-years-old, many Amadorians could use a helping hand with many of the basic, everyday tasks that the other four-fifths of the county may take for granted. Getting to appointments on time, preparing meals, picking up prescriptions, doing laundry, shopping, housecleaning, gardening, walking assistance, caring for pets and plants, and supervising medication are but a few of the daily activities with which folks in their golden years may need assistance.

Thankfully, there is a new service in...

On Tuesday, Holiday Inn Express, in Jackson, held a ribbon cutting ceremony as owner Atul Patel officially opened the hotel’s new swimming pool. Members of the Amador County Chamber of Commerce were on hand in support of their fellow Jackson business owner.

If it were possible that the mountainous comeliness of Amador County could be improved upon, it would have to be a job that could only be done by the likes of someone from the three generations of Simmons men, who have spent more than four decades doing their part to improve and beautify Amador County’s landscape. The Simmons family originally hailed from Oregon, until Charlie Simmons made his way down to California’s Southland. He wound up in Camarillo, where he started his landscape business modestly, just putting one lawn in for a... [Read more]

Join us this Friday, June 26, as we tap into two rare beers from Firestone Walker Brewing.
