        Syria was able to resume launching air strikes from the base but the advance warning we gave the Russians, so they could get their personnel out of the way, also allowed the Syrians to shield some of their aircraft, reducing the damage that was done.

  • Be safe out there

        National Safe Boating Week is May 20-26.

  • Sharp to seek re-election to District 4 seat on Board of Supervisors

        John Sharp was first elected to the District 4 Board of Supervisor’s seat in 2005 when he defeated the incumbent, Robert Bashore, in a Republican primary.
        This year, Sharp is being challenged for the Republican  nomination in a June 13 primary.

The winner of this year’s Republican primary will also probably be the winner of the November general election.
