Cleanup will take place at the steep embankment below the athletic field at Jackson Junior High School. Photo courtesy to the Amador Ledger Dispatch
As part of the ongoing cleanup work in Jackson, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will stabilize and cover a large, steep embankment below the athletic field at Jackson Junior High School. The embankment is partially composed of mine tailings and has been found to contain high levels of arsenic. While the slopes of the embankment are not generally accessed by students, EPA would like to ensure protection of human health by cleaning up this area. The slopes will be capped with shotcrete, which will limit potential... [Read more]

Sorry I’ve been gone for a couple weeks, but the aftermath of the move has kept me so busy I’ve not had time to go fishing, but I remedied that on Thursday, July 9.

Yuki and I decided to drive up Highway 88 and either fish Caples or Upper Blue. The reason those two, they planted both on the 5th so the prospects were good for at least a fish or two. After we stopped for coffee at Cooks Station, I asked Yuki which lake. He said, “You pick,” and of course if I had a choice it would be Upper Blue.

When we got to the lake at just...

With your help we can place Amador County’s entire printed history online. Just imagine strolling back to 1855 in a searchable website.
We are in danger of losing our history. Newspapers have been published since 1855 under different mastheads. And for years, folks looking to dig into history have ventured to the Amador County Public Library to seek information on microfilm. The problem – microfilm has a life cycle. In fact, one of the machines used to search past publications is one that no longer has parts made for it or can be serviced. Thankfully, a second machine was graciously donated to assist the public. But even with that amazing gift, the microfilm... [Read more]

As we enter our inaugural season of AHL hockey in Stockton, we thought it would be a good idea to take a deeper look at the hockey operations staff traveling West from Glens Falls and give the fans an idea of just who will be running the hockey side of things both behind the bench and in the dressing room.

We start our series with, of course, the Head Coach Ryan Huska.

Ryan Huska began his coaching career in Kelowna where he coached as an assistant for five seasons before becoming the head man for the next seven seasons....

Antacids could be contributing to the malfunction of your body. Photo courtesy to the ALD

Have you ever had heartburn or indigestion and popped a Tums — an antacid? In most cases, the antacid may have relieved your symptoms right away — making this digestive issue a temporary fix. But, what if I told you that every time you popped that big chewable tablet into your mouth that it could be contributing to the ‘malfunction’ of your own body’s natural production of gastric juices (acids), which are so vital to the breakdown of protein and fatty foods — would you consider or even stop taking them? I’ll explain.

When we...

Considered to be one of the toughest endurance races in the world, the annual Race Across AMerica, or RAAM, is only for adventurous people who enjoy a challenge.

It’s been a trying final season for veteran bodybuilder Arthur Peacock. If coming off of a three-year hiatus due to health issues that included major surgery aren’t enough, the seasoned champion will turn 80 this year. His first bout back on stage, the famously challenging Contra Costa Bodybuilding Championship, lead to a heart attack after exiting stage right, and then a technical disqualification. But Peacock wasn’t deterred, and the next month would leave the world of bodybuilding in awe.

No less than three weeks after heart...
