As the title states, I am looking to get a handful of fruit trees/shrubs for my wife's and son's birthdays coming up.
A few years back I went to Big Oak nursery in Elk Grove (I think it was Big Oak, it was somewhere near Wilton), and the prices were reasonable. Just looking for something like that here. I know Green Acres has a great selection but they seem pricy. That is my backup plan.
I'm just so disappointed every time I go outside because I live here.
Hey everyone, so I was hoping to get your feedback on my approach for responding to my ticket. About a month ago I was driving to the store and was coming up on the entrance to the strip mall on my right. However, I always miss this entrance and end up having to drive an extra 10 minutes to do a proper u-turn and come back. Not saying this justifies my speed just stating the facts. So I recognized that the entrance was coming up but I was stuck behind a really slow truck so I decided to speed up to pass it. I passed it at a safe distance but when I took my eyes off the rearview mirror I saw an officer on the side of the road ahead of me and he immediately pulled me over. I got ticketed for doing 65 in a 45 and I received the court notice in the mail a few days ago. I've read the 12 steps so my plan is to request trial by written declaration, ask that the officer prove his case, and maybe ask for the traffic survey for that particular road since I've read that may help my case. This is my first ticket so any feedback or tips would be greatly appreciated, I've also uploaded an image of the ticket here http://imgur.com/a/3FUP36N
In the last two weeks, nearly 1% of the population in both Sacramento and Placer Counties have tested positive for COVID. Of the two, Placer is in a particularly rough position with only 5 available ICU beds for their nearly 400K residence.
Having closely followed this data since the start of the pandemic it has been continuously shocking to watch the exponential nature of each spike in cases. Arguably our region has experienced three waves so far, each one making the previous look insignificant.
One thing is for sure, we cannot compare this current wave to the last two. Our current situation is dramatically worse than anything we have experienced so far. I truly hope everyone considers staying home for Christmas.
This situation really sucks. I empathize with those who distrust the government or just want to see relatives for the holidays but if even a few more of us choose to stay home we can make a difference. If there was ever a time to hunker down it is now.

Can anyone on here shed some light as to why Placer County still is not allowed to move to the Red Covid Tier despite seemingly meeting all the parameters 2 weeks in a row? El Dorado County moved last week, we didn’t. I’m just a little confused I guess as to if I’m missing something.
This is really a call to action and request to brainstorm ways to protect our Placer County community since we have incompetent government officials making things much worse by refusing to enforce the state health departments shut down orders, recommendations and paying businesses to break the covid recommendations from the state. This seems corrupt, criminally negligent, a dereliction of their duties as elected officials and not to mention, dangerous to the health of our county. There are only 25 of 70 ICU beds left in Placer County.
Is there any way we can circumvent the negligent Placer County Board of Supervisors? Petition? Can we recall the Board of Supervisors? Any lawyers know if we could file suit? Any ideas for how we can start protecting our community, please let me know.
The article in the link below: "Supervisor Kirk Uhler says Placer County officials will not be enforcing Governor Gavin Newsom's new regional based stay-at-home order as COVID-19 numbers surge across the state. Uhler is longtime critic of the Democratic governor. In fact, Uhler's proposing the county set aside more federal CARE's Act funding to cover the cost any fines levied by the state on small businesses under the new order. That proposal has the support of fellow Supervisor Bonnie Gore. Gore says Uhler's proposal is something she'd be "happy" to talk with the board about. Gore says the proposal is about supporting the county's local businesses, even though they could be fined for simply "trying to make a living and a livelihood.""
I want to go on the Big Trees Trail tomorrow but unsure if trail is open/accessible right now.
My wife and I are hoping to join you all in the Roseville area soon. We're looking at houses, and one we really like is right on the border of Roseville city limits and unincorporated Placer county, on the Placer side (close to the corner of Vineyard Rd. and Foothills Blvd.).
We're curious: is there any significant difference between owning a home on one side vs. the other? For example, any property tax implications? Different utilities?
Thanks for guiding us!
