Results of Planning Commission Meeting

The Vallecito subdivision went before the Mariposa County Planning Commission on Friday, April 21. The Commission voted 4 to 1 to approve the project with no further mitigation.

HISTORY IN THE MAKING

 by Lucille Apcar

Diana Agabeg Apcar (my grandmother) in her final manuscript wrote the following:

                “Our knowledge and experience of the world suggest to us that two thirds of its written history are, as likely as not, to be a lie. The historian of one country draws a different picture and gives a different version of the same historical event from the picture and version given by historians of another country. So it may be in the future, some more of what are called ‘discoveries’ will be fathomed, another batch of scholars will arise whose findings will upset the conclusions at present accepted.”
