Letter to the Editor

A better option of EID

EDITOR: Mark Twain popularized the saying “There are three kinds of lies: Lies, damned lies, and statistics.” It meshes well with many claims about the El Dorado Irrigation District by current EID directors Greg Prada and Alan Day. One of the best resources for sampling and checking their advocacy is to review the litany of claims […]

Thanks, DSA

EDITOR: With all the craziness involving police officers going on in the U.S., I would like to bring something positive to the conversation.

Jefferson movement and the Brits

EDITOR: It didn’t take long for many of us to recognize the parallels between the Brit’s win for independence from the European Union and the efforts to separate from the state of California, by residents in 21 northern, rural counties.
