City Trek: The Undeveloped Country

LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Committee) is proposing to strip some areas from Nevada City’s historic watershed sphere of influence. Who’s behind this naked power grab? We may find some answers at the workshop scheduled for this Thursday at the ROOD complex. The fun begins at 9:30 am. Hope to see you there. (Set phasers on stun!)

At The Crossroads

It’s been quite a week for our sleepy village. First, landslides closed Interstate 80, detouring traffic down Highway 20 through Nevada City and Grass Valley to Auburn. Then, the imminent possibility of spillway failure on the Oroville dam sent hundreds of refugees east on Highway 20 to the relative safety of the foothill towns.

All in all, we weathered the storm with grace and charity. The fairgrounds was inundated with much needed supplies to make the unexpected guests as comfortable as possible. People opened their homes to strangers. No one asked for party affiliation, religion or race.

Once again we are reminded why we live in this wonderful neck of the woods.

Fundraiser for Lefty’s

Lefty’s is a great eatery that has been flooded twice this year. Let’s show a little spaghetti solidarity and help them get back on their feet. (Being a “lefty” myself, I can’t help but feel some empathy for my brethren!)
