EID has been cutting expenses and employees

EDITOR: EID’s financial metrics in the past decade show a history of rising revenues and rising costs during the tenure of Ane Deister as general manager, which ended on Dec.31, 2007. Following that the history is of dropping revenues and major cost cutting, first by Interim GM Tom Gallier, then on a more comprehensive scope […]

Unbelievable inhumanity

EDITOR: I am appalled by the idea that any living being can willfully kill another living being. I am referring to Cubby the beaver in El Dorado Hills. The thought of Cubby not realizing when he took his last breath, when it actually would be his last breath, then to be inhumanely drowned, is unconscionable. […]

EID not really concerned about water conservation

EDITOR: Is the EID REALLY concerned with water conservation? NOPE. There is something very, very wrong over at the EID … and it’s easily fixed, but what is their motivation to fix it? Well, there’s none! Like many of you, I have been hearing the rants of water bill increases over the last four years. […]

Beaver debate getting too personal

EDITOR: Regarding the recent Village Life article “Neighbors battle over beaver:” I would like to take exception to the writer’s characterization of Scott Jefferson, the Four Seasons general manager, as “intransigent” in his insistance that the decision on the beaver’s fate is sealed. This would imply that Scott refuses to compromise on that decision, assuming […]

Check fixeid.org’s facts

Reporter Mike Roberts of El Dorado Hills Village Life characterized the fixeid.org web authors as watchdogs. The analogy is apt: They’re vicious and dangerous to both EID and its customers. I’ve begun a new section on www.sierrafoot.org titled “What’s wrong with FIXEID.” The main part in terms of size of content is a reference section, slightly over […]
