Agriculture commissioner Wright retires after 7 years at post

With his newfound freedom, the former Oklahoma fish farm owner of 12 years plans on making regular fishing trips to Calaveras County during the week to beat the weekend rush, spending more time with family and reconnecting with old friends.

During his time with the county, Wright was at the helm of the state’s first Agriculture Commissioner’s department to provide regulatory pesticide oversight for cannabis cultivators, and he oversaw the development of an effective, cost-efficient weights and measures laboratory, according to a proclamation recognizing his work.

On his way out the door, Wright took some time to talk agriculture with the Enterprise.

After his first motion to approve budget adjustments was shot down, District 2 Supervisor Jack Garamendi made a motion to approve adjustments without the reimbursements included.
“I don’t think it’s fair or responsible to make every citizen of this county pay for regulation that the people who are being regulated (have) already paid for,” Garamendi said. “I’m very disappointed that this fight continues, however the business of the county has to go forward.”

Angels Camp shop focuses on vintage items for new décor approach

Horse Feathers Vintage offers items that have not been recycled, rather they’re “upcycled,” according to McAfee. Things like an old post office box door becomes a picture frame; a rusty mattress spring becomes a way to mount artwork on a wall; coffee tins become a means to store jewelry or other items. Along with the vintage home décor are old clothes that harken back to a different time but are still fashionable enough to find a new place in someone’s closet.

There’s a definite difference between items labeled as “vintage” and those labeled as “antique.” Just ask Dena McAfee and Caroline Yu.
