This HOA has worked diligently to take reasonable action on behalf of all of its homeowners; it is the recall supporters who have fallen far short of honoring reality and reason. Please see the special section on www.sierrafoot.org; its “What else?” page reviews 18 false claims made by recall […]

EID needs new board members

EDITOR: In El Dorado Irrigation District Director Greg Prada’s rejection of EID’s annual audit he committed two violations of reason.
