Trustee Klein speaks to Republican committee

Sierra College Trustee Aaron Klein, who played a central role in the recent departure of college President Kevin Ramirez, will speak to the Nevada County Republican Central Committee on Wednesday.

Klein, elected to the Board of Trustees last year and representing part of Nevada County, will be the featured guest at the party’s monthly meeting, which begins at 7 p.m.

The event, held at the Rood Administrative Center, is free.

Klein blasted Ramirez in a December memo that accused the president of misusing school funds and donations to the school’s nonprofit foundation.

Ramirez and other school officials have denied the allegations, but the complaint sparked a series of closed-door meetings that culminated in Ramirez’s retirement.

Manzanita Diggins, Sugarloaf plans on hold

Discussions about Sugarloaf and Manzanita Diggins are temporarily on hold, Nevada City City Manager Mark Miller said Monday. The Mull family, which owns the hilltop property, called off a Jan. 24 meeting but is continuing to communicate with the city, Miller said.

The city is working with the family to acquire Sugarloaf, the hill north of Nevada City, to use as public parkland. The family also owns 100 acres adjacent to Sugarloaf, which it hopes to develop.
