Douglas Bianchi: Forest in a village

The local Hobbits would benefit from spending some time, along with their tea and crumpets, pondering the difference between a village in a forest and a forest in a village. Nevada City over the years has evolved from the former to the latter. Meanwhile, a perch in a tree should provide a front row seat if the city gets around to re-installing its klaxon. I trust the bolt holes are comfortably appointed.
