Living next to a drug house

Nevada County judges need to attend a town hall meeting. It has to start at the top this time.

We call Narcotics Task Force.

We leave tips on the line.

We invite narcotics officers to sit at our table and watch the drug traffic next door. (I even offer to feed them as they watch, and I’m a pretty good cook)

Nothing – nothing – is resolved.

When they quit paying rent (and not until then) do landlords try to evict them.

They go to court, and these druggies tell the judge, “I have nowhere to go.”

The judge says they can stay a bit longer. (After all, they don’t live next door to them!)

An open invitation. . . .

– Experience life next to a drug house.

– See crazy people!

– Witness fights in the street.

– View the parade of autos that limp up the road.

– Watch as they attempt to wrench on those autos so they make it back down the road.

– Admire the landscape of broken-down cars, tin sheds and more c— than one could imagine.

– Try to ignore them as you walk by to get your mail.

– Don’t look into their eyes, ’cause you won’t find a soul.

– See faces of their children exposed to such a lifestyle.

– Witness their sick and hungry dogs c— in my yard.

– Smell the bags upon bags of trash.

Come experience …. For reservations, call 1-888 WE DO METH.

Laura Grout lives in Grass Valley and is totally frustrated. (And if you’re wondering why she doesn’t sell, try finding a buyer).

Alvin Blake: Strengthen our power grid


We must do more to strengthen our power grid against an electromagnetic pulse event. Such an event can result from an attack by terrorists or by another country (China may already have the capability) or…
