Leave Vertin alone

I am shocked at all the negative and angry letters about David Vertin.

When I moved here in 1974, Mr. Vertin was a schoolteacher at Ready Springs School. He also had his logging business and always stayed busy. Mr. Vertin was the only teacher in all my years of schooling and college who really made a impact on me. It was really fun and exciting to be in his class.

I can’t understand people and their anger and flat-out jealousy. Everyone has the right in life to make a living. As far as I’m concerned, he is a asset to Nevada City and its nostalgic charm. I’m not saying that the chamber should help him and not anyone else, but I do believe that some kind of funding should be available to those in need, especially if they own a pertinent place of business that is important to the charm of Nevada City and keeps tourists coming to visit. Life is more important to live without all the jealousy, anger and hatred. Love one another.
