Help us Continue the Traditional 4th of July Celebration


By - Keith Davies & Robin Galvan-Davies - Cathy Whittlesey - Julia Jordan
In Nevada County, we are proud to host one of Northern California's finest Fourth of July celebrations. Our parades are second to none, our fairgrounds event provides great family fun and our aerial fireworks are the best in the Sierra foothills.
The Greater Grass Valley and Nevada City Chambers of Commerce along with the Grass Valley Downtown Association sponsor this community tradition. We spend many months each year planning the event.
Our combined annual budget for the Fourth of July increases every year and this year is no exception. Most of the obligated costs and charges we are looking at are associated with the daylong Fourth of July celebration at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.
Cost for the July 4th fairgrounds celebration include fairgrounds rental that is $6,500 and an additional $9,300 for fireworks. We also face higher costs for police and security patrols, entertainment, insurance, trash removal, janitorial services and other necessities. This year the budget adds up to approximately $45,000.
Admission prices barely cover our costs for the celebration and we cannot take on a deficit for the event. This year we are forced to increase ticket prices. Admission will be at $10 in advance for adults and $15 if you wait to purchase your ticket at the gate. It is FREE for children 12 and under. (The fairgrounds charges $5 per car for Parking.)

As has been the case through the years, many of the costs of the Fourth of July celebration are underwritten through the generous donations of local businesses and individual contributors. We are asking that you consider becoming a sponsor and sending a contribution for the 4th of July. You can send it to Nevada City Chamber of Commerce - 132 Main Street - Nevada City, CA 95959. We need your financial contribution to allow us to continue this traditional community celebration.
There are no changes planned for the Fourth of July parades, which rotate annually between Grass Valley and Nevada City and have done so for more than 100 years. This year's parade will be held at 11 a.m. on July 4th in historic downtown Nevada City.
We invite the entire community to come out on the Fourth of July, take in the parade, fairgrounds festivities and fireworks and enjoy a good, old-fashioned, patriotic celebration here in our hometowns of Grass Valley and Nevada City.
Keith Davies & Robin Galvan-Davies are CO-CEO's of the

Greater Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce,
Cathy Whittlesey is Executive Director of the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce and
Julia Jordon is Executive Director of the Grass Valley Downtown Association.

Immigration Reform Still Top Priority

Immigration reform may not dominate the headlines right now, but work goes on quietly behind the scenes on meaningful reform, with the goal of passing a series of bills this year. It remains a top priority for the U.S. Chamber and the business community because it is important to spurring economic growth. Following up on the Republican "Standards for Immigration Reform" the broad business coalition sent a letter to Capitol Hill urging Congress to act that featured 636 signatories (including 246 businesses of all sizes and industries and 390 business groups, notably chambers of commerce). The letter received widespread coverage because it clearly demonstrated how united business is on this issue.

There are still several windows in the congressional schedule this year when a bill could move. Please call or write to your Member of Congress and ask them to move immigration reform to the floor this year.

For more resources to help move the ball forward, check out our Immigration Toolkit featuring sample op-eds, letters to the Hill, and policy statements.

SACRAMENTO - Senator Ted Gaines' (R-Roseville) bill to immediately get rate reductions to insurance consumers (Senate Bill 1173), failed today in the Senate Insurance Committee on a 3-to-8 vote.

"I am extremely disappointed that the Committee failed to pass this important bill," said Senator Gaines. "California auto insurance is the eighth-highest in the country and rate decreases take between four months and a year to get through the bureaucratic process. That's a travesty. Hardworking Californians deserve to benefit from valuable insurance cost savings immediately."

Senate Bill 1173 would have required that the Insurance Commissioner automatically accept any rate decrease application filed with the Department of Insurance. This would save consumers months' worth of higher prices because of rate adjustments they're waiting on the Insurance Commissioner to approve.

In 1988, Proposition 103 established a rate review process to be implemented by an elected Insurance Commissioner and the Department of Insurance (DOI). The process includes a full application to be submitted to the department, public notice and a hearing, if required.

Proposition 103 was aimed at combatting the unchecked insurance rate increases happening at the time, and put tighter regulation and oversight on the industry to prevent abuses and discriminatory practices by insurers.

The regulations set in place also established a formula to cap the profits to the insurers, and restrict the costs that can be passed onto the consumers - specifically political use of premiums and fees paid.

"This bill would have upheld voters' intent to put protections on rate hikes and insurer profits, but also ensured that customers save money when an insurer is able to lower rates," said Senator Gaines. "I will continue to look for opportunities to advocate on behalf of California taxpayers and eliminate unnecessary bureaucratic processes that waste time and money."

Senator Ted Gaines represents the 1st Senate District, which includes all or parts of Alpine, El Dorado, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, Shasta, Sierra and Siskiyou counties.

As part of our ongoing service to Realtor's, we are providing a newsletter consistent with our mission to help Realtor's sell homes.

In the following months, we will provide answers to frequently asked questions regarding issues that homeowners and Realtor's have about carpet.

As we invest in ongoing education, we have taken the odor control class at the University in Sacramento, we can provide the following tips.

This information has been provided as a hard copy in case you need to relay suggestions to your clients.

What is an option your client can initially do if there are indications of urine?

1. If the urine is fresh, blot the urine out as much as possible. Then the client can use a 50/50 water and vinegar mix spraying enough liquid to dilute the spot. Then repeat the blotting.
IF the carpet is heavily saturated, then professional services are needed. 

2. If the urine is in just one area, we can apply a topical agent.

3. If the urine situation is severe and the client is willing to make the investment, the pad can be removed and replaced, then a two step urine treatment can be done on the carpet.

4. Another option is to leave the pad in and then perform the two step urine treatment. This involves a pre-spray, neutralizer and a steam cleaning.

5. The option that most of our clients and Realtor's go for is our outstanding steam cleaning. Although it is not a urine treatment, it does help the situation and is cost effective.

6. In some cases when the carpet is heavy soiled, it is best to replace it.

We always provide discounts to Realtor's and their Clients.

Please call us if you have any questions as we can offer suggestions or come to your clients home free of charge to access the carpets viability.

We wish you and your family the best for 2014.

Proposal to Discourage Frivolous Lawsuits Moves

(April 24, 2014) A California Chamber of Commerce-sponsored job creator bill that will discourage frivolous litigation passed the Assembly Labor and Employment Committee yesterday with bipartisan support.




Public Affairs / Politics
Stone's bill is vehemently opposed by the California Chamber of Commerce, local chambers and more than two dozen trade groups, representing virtually every sector of the business community, ranging from the state apartment association to the retailers association. "We have some of the most complicated wage-and-hour laws in the country that create disputes between our labor agency and the courts," she said. "This would allow employees to determine when they are entitled to wages." Los Angeles Times
Orders for durable goods poured into American factories in March, setting up manufacturing as one of the central drivers of a rebound in economic growth during the second quarter.
