County turns its back

I cannot believe the City of Grass Valley and County of Nevada could so openly turn their backs on the less fortunate (financially, mentally or developmentally). We’re all to blame as we voted these leaders into office (major, City Council and Board of Supervisors).

Where are the articles telling of their moral outrage and plans to help solve, not hide, this local problem? Some of us may lose our jobs, suffer a severe injury, or have a son/daughter that has a mental disorder severe enough to cause a homeless way of life.

A group of caring people organized the Hospitality House without much assistance from the powers-that-should-be. Now those powers are harassing this effort, with but a few short weeks left in the winter program. Why?

Why not get together, the goal being to come up with a solution to benefit the Hair Dressers and the Down and Out? Are we that tired of the cancer of greed enveloping our national leaders that we turn a blind eye to a local problem we can do something about?

Where’s the bridge over troubled water?
