Commute is worth it

My husband and I are two of the commuters who travel out of Nevada County each day. He works in Sacramento, and I work in Auburn. We’ve explored the possibility of working in the county, but we both realize we make more than twice the salary elsewhere than is paid in Nevada County.

Both of us are heavily involved in our children’s activities, and it is true that we are stretched to the point of exhaustion. We appreciate living in the county, with its exceptional schools, its climate and environment, and its beauty. It is worth it to us to commute.

I feel your editorial was right on the mark. I, too, do not have an answer to this problem, but I appreciate your thought-provoking comments.
