Readers’ Corner: March 17, 2010

Question the candidates:

You probably read in Saturday’s The Union about a candidate forum set for 6 p.m. Thursday, April 1, at the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building. It’s being co-sponsored by The Union, KNCO Radio and the Nevada County Tea Party Patriots.

You have a chance to suggest ideas for questions by sending them to City Editor Trina Kleist (she’ll be on the media panel) at or call her at (530) 477-4230; be sure to leave a message if you get her voice-mail.

During the forum, candidates will be called to the stage in 11 groups for each of the elected posts to answer questions. A panel from the two media outlets will ask the questions during the forum – none will be taken from the audience.

So staff from the newspaper and radio station are working on the questions that will be asked of the candidates in each race – and are eager to hear from you!

We’re hoping for a big turn-out at this important opportunity to get educated about what our candidates offer.

The Vets Building is at 255 S. Auburn St., Grass Valley – lots of parking in the back.

Class of – yes, that’s right – 1945:

On a warm June evening in 1945, 83 seniors walked across the stage of the gymnasium at Grass Valley High School and received their diplomas.

Today, members of that class are planning a 65th reunion to be held at the Alta sierra Country Club on Saturday, Sept. 11.

Festivities will begin with a social gathering at 11:30 a.m., followed by a luncheon and program. Notices have been sent to classmates whose whereabouts are known.

Anyone wishing to attend who has not been notified can contact Carol Painter at (530) 273-2641; Matt DePauli at (530) 272-5112; or Ken Sahl, (916) 783-7487.

Pizza delivered in (fire-safe) style:

Through March 21, all residents of Beale Air Force Base who order a Domino’s pizza will get a big surprise at the front door when their pizza arrives aboard a fire engine. If all the smoke detectors in the home are working, the pizza is free.

“Fire safety is vitally important,” said Dan McAllister, owner of Domino’s Pizza in Marysville. He wants folks to remember daylight saving time is a good time to check the batteries in your smoke detectors.
