For most men, getting older is a distant thought; a time when bucket-list items are crossed off the list, financial goals are accomplished, and retirement awaits. But then, one day, we wake up and realize that we're not just getting older - we are older. Workouts in the gym start to cause more aches and pains the next morning. Keeping weight off around the midsection is much harder than it once was. Stretching before an impromptu game of basketball isn't just a good idea - it's necessary for you to perform. And that gets to the crux of what men hate most about aging - the inability to perform as they used to, whether it's in the bedroom or on the basketball court.
Unfortunately, there's no avoiding the inevitable. As men age, their testosterone levels deplete, causing a slew of mid-life maladies like:
- Loss of Energy
- Lack of Interest in Sex
- Low Sex Drive
- Can't Hold an Erection
- Weight Gain
- Muscle Loss
- Hair Loss
- Nagging Injuries
If you're a man in his 30s or 40s, and you feel like you're dragging your feet through life with no upside, don't lose hope. Millions of men just like you are experiencing the same symptoms and feelings that you're suffering through. In fact, almost 75% of men live life with undiagnosed low testosterone.
Unlike those men, however, you don't have to settle for the effects of aging. There are easy, science-backed solutions available to you right now. If you're ready to reclaim the looks and feel of your prime, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may be for you. TRT in Mariposa, CA bridges the gap between your old life with low-T and the new, more virile version of you. That's where Testosterone Optimization Program comes in - to facilitate your transition to a new life with optimal testosterone levels. With TOP by your side, you'll have the guidance and tools to get back on track with personalized TRT plans.
But to understand the life-changing benefits of TOP, you've got to first understand testosterone, the symptoms of low-T, and how TRT works to replenish this much-needed hormone.
Trust the TOP Difference
Did you know that one in five men over the age of 45 exhibit signs of low testosterone? Male testosterone levels begin dropping gradually as soon as age 30. As men age and start to question their sexual health, some of the top symptoms they report are low libido, erectile dysfunction, and delayed ejaculation. When combined, these symptoms can lead men to develop self-image issues, experience poor relationships, and even have a lower quality of life.
But for men living with low-T, a clear path has been paved toward relief. That path starts with the Testosterone Optimization Program. TOP was founded to give men with low-T a new lease on life - one that includes less body fat, fewer performance issues in the bedroom, and more energy. If you're ready to feel and look younger, it's time to consider testosterone replacement therapy from TOP. TRT in Mariposa, CA, is safe, streamlined for convenience, and personalized to your unique needs. That way, you can age on your own terms and love life as you did in your prime.
Patients choose TOP because we take the time to learn about your low-T symptoms and provide personalized, in-office treatment. Other benefits include:
- Blood Tests to Determine Low-T Diagnosis
- Personalized TRT Plans Based on Your Goals
- No Need for Trips to the Pharmacy
- In-Office Intramuscular TRT Injections
- TRT Provided by Licensed Doctors

How the TOP Program Works

Through the treatment plan our low testosterone doctors create specifically for you, they can help alleviate most, if not all, of the symptoms associated with low testosterone.559-354-3537

MOUNTAIN COMMUNITIES–Over the last several days, Northern California has been under siege by a series of hard hitting winter storms. Our communities in Mariposa County and Eastern Madera County have been impacted by these storms in numerous ways including over 12,000 people without power, trees crashing into homes and outbuildings, and roads. Also, Yosemite National Park has been closed and schools won’t be opening this week at all. Sierra News Online has been monitoring and reporting on all of these impacts as much as possible. We will continue to do our best to keep our readers informed but please be patient as many of us are without power and snowed in as well.
Local State of Emergency Proclamation for Madera County
On March 1, 2023 Sheriff Tyson Pogue will be submitting a proclamation of local emergency for Madera County due to the significant impacts of the ongoing extreme weather conditions.
The ongoing storm system has generated hazardous road conditions, power outages, and downed trees due to excessive snow fall throughout the county. With the level of snow and rain projected, there is also potential for debris/mud flow from burn scars.
Madera County Sheriff’s Dispatch saw another day of calls regarding plows, trees down, power lines down and people stuck in homes. Deputies pulled out a handful of family from locations and moved them to alternate sites. The Sheriff’s Snow Cat was in-service until 7pm with pulling people out of homes. The Snow Cat knocked down some snow banks allowing access to the Bass Lake Waist Water Plant, Fire Station and Sierra Ambulance Station.
For Tomorrow, additional Deputies and SAR Volunteers have been detailed to help with this last storm system. One of the Sheriff’s Office tracked equipment was unable to be repaired today by SAR Volunteers. It will need shop service. Sullivans was unable to repair the SAR 4×4 Units today, but they have ordered parts for that repair.
The Madera County Sheriff’s Office has been coordinating with Public Works regarding areas in most need of clearing of snow. The Bass Lake Area (Bass Lake Heights, Pines, Marina View) has accounted for over 80% of the requests for assistance. Per Joseph Wilder: The Red Cross Shelter will be open today and is planning to re-open again Thursday as of now. That will be reassessed as power is restored throughout the area.
Spoiled Food Disposal
SPOILED FOOD DISPOSAL: As the storm clears and roads begin to get opened back up, the Madera County Public Works Department is working with Emadco Disposal to provide locations for residents affected by power outages to dispose of spoiled food.
WE ASK THAT ONLY THOSE AFFECTED BY POWER OUTAGES USE THESE LOCATIONS.
Currently the only location available is at Liberty Dr. in Oakhurst near the Madera County Sheriff’s Office substation. More locations will be made available, including the North Fork Transfer Station, as access to areas is gained. Please be mindful of continued adverse road and weather conditions and plan accordingly.
Group of goats helping with fire prevention efforts in Mariposa County

MARIPOSA COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- From rain to record snow, Central California had an active winter. Cal Fire officials said they are preparing for what may be a late fire season.
"We've offered several academies for firefighters to prepare for the upcoming season. We've also done some vegetation management, prescribed fire burns," said Jaime Williams, CalFire Fire Prevention Specialist.
This past weekend, first responders fought a vegetation fire in Kathy's Valley. We saw crews on Monday afternoon monitoring the area.
Williams said it's essential for your family to be prepared for potential fires.
"We live in a very high fire hazard zone, and so it's really important for people to get their defensible space. You know, last year we had the Oak Fire, and it impacted a lot of families, and it's a small community, so it impacted us all." said Williams.
Meanwhile, there is a group working hard to prevent fires in Mariposa County-- a group of goats.
"Now there's a lot more people here. A lot more small parcels, not as much grazing, so there's a big need to reduce the fuel load, and that's what we use the goats for."
Goats can clear an acre of land in just a day or two. Fouch said using goats is typically cheaper than alternatives, costing anywhere from $200 to $400, depending on the acreage.
"We got booked out all summer. As soon as people started to hear about it, the whole year was booked out, so there's a huge demand." said Fouch.
"Happy Goat" has only been in business for about a year and a half -- and with so much demand for their service, they plan to expand out of Mariposa in the coming years.
Veterinarian Matty Elliot works for the company as a shepherd. After almost losing her house in a wildfire, Elliot said using goats for fire prevention is a great alternative.
"It feels good to do something 'cause you feel pretty helpless with the fires," said Elliot.

Gavin Newsom declares emergency in Madera, Mariposa and other counties hit by snowstorms

Gov. Gavin Newsom proclaimed a state of emergency in Madera, Mariposa and 11 other counties because of the winter storms that have battered mountain communities in California.
The announcement comes the day after authorities said they would ask for help because local resources were strained under more than twice the amount of snow as normal in places like Madera and Mariposa.
The governor’s announcement said he activated the National Guard and the State Operations Center to support Amador, Kern, Los Angeles, Madera, Mariposa, Mono, Nevada, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Sierra, Sonoma and Tulare counties.
The effort also calls on Cal Fire and private companies to access more snow plows, the declaration says.
Highways and major roadways connecting to the San Joaquin Valley like Interstate 5 and Highway 58 were closed much of Wednesday because of snow in higher elevations.
Others like Highway 168 in eastern Fresno County have been closed since Friday and are still days from being cleared, according to local authorities.
China Peak Mountain Resort in Fresno County reported about 12 feet of snow in the past six days while Yosemite National Park officials said they saw areas of 15 feet of snow. Both have been closed to the public because roadways are impassable.
Low elevation snow was falling down to about 1,800 feet on Wednesday, officials said.
“The extreme conditions amidst ongoing storm activity require a high level of immediate attention,” Madera County Sheriff Tyson Pogue said on social media.
The county has seen widespread downed trees, road hazards and power outages amid snowfall, he said.
“We have deployed all available resources to address the needs of the community, and look forward to the additional support this proclamation will provide,” he said.
The weather service said there’s a potential for more storms in the region this coming weekend.
Southern California has also been hit hard, according to officials.
“This well may be the largest single-event snowfall in some parts of Southern California since the 1980s,” UCLA climate scientist Daniel Swain told the Los Angeles Times before the storm hit. “This is a big deal.”
As of Sunday morning, Mountain High Resort in LA County, which has an elevation of 7,000 feet, saw nearly 8 feet of snow, according to the National Weather Service. With an elevation of 8,500 feet, Mount Pinos saw up to 6 feet of snow, while Mt. Wilson, which has an elevation of 5,700 feet, saw about 3 feet of snow.
