"When the safety of riders is put at risk, we make sure immediate steps are taken to correct any existing hazards," said Christine Baker, Director of the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR). Cal/OSHA, also known as the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) is a division of DIR.

COARSEGOLD  -- The U.S. Department of Interior's Interior Board of Indian Appeals today reaffirmed the leadership of the on-rancheria ruling Tribal Council of the Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians by rejecting an appeal filed by Reggie Lewis, the head of a rogue faction falsely claiming to lead the Chukchansi Tribe.

In rejecting the Lewis appeal—and rejecting a request by Amy Dutschke, the BIA's regional Director for the Pacific region, to make her February 2014 opinion effective immediately—the IBIA dealt yet another blow to Lewis's fading hopes of grabbing control of the Chukchansi Tribe.

EDITORIAL -  Christians around the globe celebrate the hope we have in the Easter message.


Unfortunately, millions of Americans are faintly holding on. They are holding on to the instilled American dream they saw in grandpa or even mom and dad. It's about the attainable dream of living securely with a job, a house, a car and trips to the grocery store. Don't forget a trip to the doctor when necessary. Many Americans can remember people in their family retiring at 55 - 65 years old. Those ages seemed old then but not so old today.
