Coco flip-flops at EID

EDITOR: Director Dale Coco said in February that the Faux Farm (Fake Farm) issue had to be cleaned up and reformed because it was unfair to other EID ratepayers. Instead, he flip-flopped and went back on his own promises, yet again. He’s been doing that a lot in his short time at EID (for example, […]

EID water rate misrepresentation

EDITOR: EID’s water rate subsidy to small farmers is much greater than previously represented to the EID board and public by General Manager Jim Abercrombie. On April 25, 2014, and again on June 23, 2014, Abercrombie represented to the EID board and public that small farm rate recipients pay $514 per acre foot of EID […]

EDITOR: Regarding Marian Cias’ comments on painting political messages on the rocks, the last time I checked there are no rules for painting the rocks with whatever message you want to put on them (of course profanity should not be included!).

Rocks on EDH Blvd.

EDITOR: I have lived in El Dorado Hills for 40 years and in that time I have never seen the rocks with such a blatant political statement as the “Impeach Obama” which I saw. Mostly the rocks are decorated for celebrations: birthdays, graduations, school teams, veteran homecomings and, yes, sad occasions too. I certainly hope this […]

EID board votes to support small farms

EDITOR: The EID board voted 3-2 at a contentious board meeting on July 14 to continue to support the small farm water rate with “qualified” livestock added to the mix. The comments by the farming community were interesting: Dr. Robert Shuman: “Farming is the music of life.” My question for Dr. Shuman is: “Do you really […]
