Thanks for SYRCL info

I would like to thank The Union for recent articles and opinion pieces by Supervisor Bedwell in opposition to a group called SYRCL [South Yuba River Citizens League].

Reading these pieces, I was led to believe that SYRCL was some nefarious organization bent on the destruction of the most beautiful river I have ever seen. However, after researching the SYRCL web site, I learned that it is actually a group of dedicated local volunteers striving to preserve the river in its natural state for the benefit of future generations.

Apparently, your supervisor finds something unpatriotic in that. It is fortunate that the rest of Nevada County doesn’t agree with Mr. Bedwell on this issue.

I am certain that there are many people like me, who would not spend our tourist dollars in Nevada County were it not for the beautiful South Yuba. So thank you, Supervisor Bedwell, for telling me about SYRCL. I have just made a contribution to them, in hopes that they use my money to obtain public grants so that all of our tax dollars can go to a deserving cause.
