SST LTRNovember 22, 2017 - A fervent ‘THANK YOU” to Supervisor Rosemarie Smallcombe for the great work being performed by the AmeriCorps all over town and hopefully also county wide.  Rosemarie you are just what this County needs:  a Supervisor who wants to take pride in the Community, the People, the appearance of its County Seat, and who wants to offer to the ever important visitor to our humble home, a clean, well maintained, attractive premises.

But the work is not yet done.  We must clean up the eyesores of empty lots overgrown with scrub (one of them is right next door to our prettiest Motor Inn, The Mariposa Lodge), street edgings un-mowed and un-cleaned for years, make certain that all uninhabited lots are fireproof, and above all, finally invest in A Community Center that has been in the General Plan for a Century (if not more).  A center we can all be proud of, featuring among other activities, the Performing Arts for which Mariposa has already made a name for itself. 

I ask, why are we spending huge sums of money to an organization ostensibly “promoting” Mariposa when we have little or nothing to offer?  Mariposa is NOT a dusty little mining town in close proximity to a major National Park.  Mariposa has a history going back 200 years, and if we do it real justice, several thousand years of Native American habitat, all of which deserve their rightful place.  If you check the records held at the History Center, Mariposa once boasted no less than five (5) cultural buildings devoted to arts and performances. 

So let us all give Mrs. Smallcombe our thanks, she is a breath of fresh air to our County.
