Reduction in rhetoric welcome

I want to thank The Union and give a kudo to the new redneck publisher of The Union.

Over the years, it’s always surprised me how a local newspaper could be so out of touch with the population. Nevada County has always been a haven for conservatives and reborn again hippies. The newspaper has been steeped with liberal rhetoric like most of the big-city newspapers and you could never trust the reporters or editors to print an article on you or your position on anything as it would be a work of distortion.

The factual articles are refreshing. The lack of political rhetoric makes reading the paper enjoyable. The bemusing slant that Ackerman toys with in his column is fun.

When I first came to Nevada County in 1978, I had a subscription to the newspaper for less than three months, as I quickly realized I was being subjected to the same trash in news influence that I had hoped to get away from by moving here. I just began taking the newspaper about the time Jeff Ackerman was coming aboard and I like what I read.

A short note, for all you political hitmen practicing the art of personal destruction with Sutherland and Bedwell. Go back where you came from. Hopefully, you moved to Nevada County to enjoy its harmony. Time to bury the hatred and baggage that drove you from wherever it is you came from.
