WOW, Best of Best at the Nevada City Classic

Grabbed the Union this morn and saw headline "Here Comes Lance!" Yes, Golden Boy Lance Armstrong, 7 time Tour de France winner & cancer survivor, Levi Leipheimer (best finish at Nevada City, 1998 champ) and Chris Horner of Astana Cycling Team will be joining the field this Sunday at the 49th Nevada City Classic. Their chartered plane will be possibly landing at GV airport. Leipheimer wrote, "I'm excited to see Nevada City agin, it's been 11 years since I've done it, in the beautiful Sierra Mountains." This should be GREAT news for shopkeepers, restraunts and race watchers. The big boys race starts at 5PM. I'm thinking of bouncing back and forth from Commercial St. (uphill) to Broad St (speeds of 50mph) to see this pretty historic race.
Tree removal will start June 22nd of Pasquale Rd. as 1st step towards improving the shoulder and installing some guardrails on this infamous winter route. Work will be done from 6:30 am - 4pm, Mon - Thr through July 9th, with 30min to 1 hr delay's. FINALLY. I know Supv. Nate Beason had alot to do with this being scheduled, so drop him a note is you have a sec. It's long overdue. Avoid delays by taking the big hill . . . . . .
Dixie just told me she had by blog added to NCVOICES.US. Wow, I'm regional! This is a grouping of local bloggers. Check it out. Thanks Dix. I'll have to be more diligent.

Is this the coolest June ever?

I've been here 10 years, and honestly, I can't remember such a cool and cloudy June. Just saw on the news that it will rain and thunder in the foothills Tues and Wed. However, it should warm up by the weekend. Is is great weather for yardwork. But once you gather up all the fallen wood and prune trees, what do you do with it? Ah, check the webpage for the 2 chipping companies that will come to your yard for a nominal fee. Kent Rees has outlined your options. He spent much time negotiating with Michael's Personalized Tree Service and Trees Unlimited for special rates for shores residents/CSHA members. From Home Page click on links, then on 2009 shipping program for full info.
The CS Womens Club is planning 3 friday night movies in July at the Firehouse, just like last summer. This is great fun, reminicient of the drive-in's of old. Except you walk in. Bring an easy chair (and footstool), your favorite blankey, and a beverage. Popcorn will be served. Movies are family friendly. They use the side of the building and sheet for a screen, and the picture and sound are surprizingly good!
