Tomorrow Declared As A National Holiday And Day Of Mourning 

President Trump has declared tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 5 as a national holiday and day of mourning in recognition of the passing of President George H.W. Bush. Our 41st President’s funeral will also take place tomorrow. This means all federal buildings will be closed, including post offices. In Amador, most county buildings will be closed; however, public safety will follow their normal routine scheduling for the holidays. The city of Ione, Jackson, and Plymouth announced that their city office buildings will be open and running in normal hours for tomorrow’s federal holiday. The city of Sutter Creek is still discussing about whether to close or keep city office buildings open at this time and will have a discussion this afternoon. The Amador School Board is also still considering whether schools will be open or closed for tomorrow’s federal holiday. The U.S. financial markets traditionally close during a Presidential funeral and will do so again. The last time this happened was for the funeral of President Gerald Ford in January 2007. The markets also closed in June 2004 for President Ronald Reagan and in April 1994 for President Richard Nixon.
