The purpose of an advisory vote

EDITOR: In the July 22 Village Life Todd White’s letter misses the point of the advisory vote on the former El Dorado Hills Executive Golf Course. There are two separate issues: First, to preserve the property as open space by encouraging the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors to not change the current open space-recreation zoning. […]

Old golf course should stay open space

EDITOR: When many of us moved to El Dorado Hills it was “distant” and “different from congested Sacramento County and we liked it. If we entered El Dorado Hills Boulevard via Highway 50, an expansive green open area that was the golf course greeted us.

Sour grapes grand jury

EDITOR: The recent grand jury report critical of El Dorado County Auditor Joe Harn and District 1 Supervisor Ron Mikulako, in my opinion, was a personal attack on two public servants who look out for taxpayer money and strongly represent the people who elected them.
