Lights drama

The number of complaints about the lights from the Weaver Auto dealership is getting absolutely ridiculous. When I see statements like “It blocks out the stars” and “The glare is distracting to drivers,” I am not sure whether to laugh or cry. Obviously, these people have way too much time on their hands. I drive by that dealership at night all the time. Never have I been “distracted” by the lights. Never have I noticed a decrease in the amount of stars.

I have come to the conclusion that Grass Valley has an anti-business slant. Any business wanting to expand has to jump through hoops to do so. Utterly ridiculous requirements are placed on them. Weaver has to put in a traffic light! There isn’t a constant flow of cars coming out of the lot, so there is no real impact on that road, even at the busiest time of day.

My advice to Weaver: Move to Auburn where your business will be appreciated. Why anyone would want to open a business in Grass Valley is beyond me.

Can we please focus on things that have some merit … like crime, pollution and road repair and leave the penny-ante stuff to the big cities?
