Good riddance to Johnny-Come-Latelies

Why is it, the Johnny-Come-Latelies, after they get here, all know more about running this county than the natives? Their attitude is, now that I’m here let’s shut the door before any more show up.

My personal thought is, if you don’t like the way things are going here you can get in your SUV and shove it back where you came from. Good riddance!

Grass Valley and Nevada City took a turn downhill after society’s panhandlers, the environmental wackos now known as SYRCL, gave away our water rights on the Yuba River by dragging in some left-wing socialist from San Francisco to put a bill through the Legislature.

One more time, when is SYRCL gong to submit to an audit so we can see where all of that grant money goes? Will disclosure of these expenditures get someone in trouble? Your behavior certainly suggests that all is not well in Glockamorra! Come on, open up your books. Prove you’re on the up and up!

Remember when we did not have to drive around and around to find a parking place and SUVs didn’t park in compact car slots?
