Oppose SB 2 & SB 50

EDITOR: I would like to encourage all residents of El Dorado County to oppose two bills moving through the state Legislature, SB 2 and SB 50. Both bills relate to the recording of property deeds and other public documents. Both bills would require more money from local taxpayers, only to be wasted by bloated and […]

Water down the drain

EDITOR: I live in Serrano and there are underground broken water lines under my street (Arenzano Way). This water has been flowing down the street since July 30 when I first contacted the El Dorado Irrigation District. They emailed me that repairs would be done within two to four weeks. So EID must have an unlimited supply […]

The emperor has no clothes

EDITOR: When I read in this paper that “most companies pay 39 percent income tax” my first thought was whether Donald Trump pays that much?

I believe in our Constitution; I believe in freedom of organized religion under the Establishment Clause, which prohibits the United States from favoring any one religion. I believe as long as there are not attempts to infringe upon the rights of others, any […]

Thank you, President Trump

EDITOR: President Trump has completed a highly successful Middle Eastern trip. After receiving a Gold Medal, Saudi Arabia’s highest civilian honor, his exhortation to drive out the Islamic radicals was well received by the heads of states from 50 Muslim nations. He then went to Israel, where Netanyahu said he was never as hopeful as […]

Messy trees

EDITOR: As a homeowner in Serrano, I applaud the overall planning and development of this community. However, there seems to be one major flaw in the choice of a particular tree that was planted, which is a very messy type of oak tree. (I believe it is the Pin oak.) The leaves of these trees […]
