TOXIC MINE BECOMING A PARK: SUTTER CREEK - The City of Sutter Creek looks to convert a historic yet toxic site into a park, but residents aren’t opposed to the idea.
From 1855 to 1954 the Central Eureka Gold Mine was in full swing, but in the process of splitting gold from rocks, miners used a toxic substance called arsenic.
Since 2007, The city of Sutter Creek has been doing environmental research on the site.
While residents were not thrilled of the idea to place a park there, they weren’t opposed either.
Park benches would be placed along the Hill, a fence would cover the gold mine, and eventually the city hopes to build a walking trail along a nearby gold stamp mill.
The $400,000 project will be paid for with a toxic substance grant.
If all goes as planned, construction would begin in May and completed in October.
IMMIGRATION DEMONSTRATION IN MODESTO: MODESTO - Thirteen people from various backgrounds, including India and Mexico, gathered inside Rep. Jeff Denham’s office Monday, asking for a chance to live legally in the United States, a country they’ve worked and studied in most their lives.
The move comes as Washington pushes for immigration reform.
One student talked of living in the U.S. since he was 2 years old.
He wasn’t impacted by being illegal until he was in junior high school when he noticed he wasn’t allowed to do things like his peers.
In high school getting a license was impossible and when it came to apply for college things were even worse.
“I couldn’t go because everywhere I went everyone asked for a social security number. All I had was a good GPA and nothing to show for it because I was an illegal immigrant,” said Carlos Jimenez.
