“Joy” will be playing at the Yuba Theatre in Downieville this weekend. The word is it’s a very enjoyable flick. BrewFest 2016 is getting close and there are so many fantastic breweries and food vendors signing up it will be wonderful fun. Check it out http://www.downievillebrewfest.com
Once again I want to thank our local county supervisors Lee Adams, Jim Beard, Peter Heubner, Paul Roen and Scott Schlefstein who work hard, try to represent every viewpoint and reach a consensus amongst themselves working with citizen committees, county staff and yes the state government and the federal government. Although they all represent an individual District, those districts combine into one county and they all represent the whole county, not just you. Anybody who thinks this is an easy job isn’t paying attention. It is easy to get informed and to help put yourself out there as a volunteer for a county committee or even the state and federal has positions any citizen can apply. Instead of a constant stream of negative criticism coming from your mouth or pen step up and do your bit in keeping our country great.
Watching the RNC is a sleeper… I am a fervent Democrat and am so tired of all the idiotic attacks on Hillary Clinton, the other side to the story is the criticism of Melania Trump who actually gave a great speech and made me think of Eva Perone and wondered if maybe this was the true plan for the Trump dynasty, but I digress, Melania used some of the same words said by First Lady Michelle Obama during the 2008 convention, what a compliment to our First Lady Michelle. So let it go, for crying out loud, start focusing on things that really matter – healthcare, education, infrastructure, the refugee crisis and how to help humanity world wide. Calling each other names is getting us no where just tell us what and how you plan to be the leader of the free world and why we should vote for you, let us decide who would be the best representative of Americans. The thing is what I am hearing is through the media, newspapers, television news, online and so the media is focusing on all this crapola, for heavens sakes stop reporting all the name calling and just give us the facts… except maybe there are no facts maybe the candidate does not have enough information about what is important to the citizens of the United States and the world to give us this important information of what we need to know about and how their ways of handling life changing decisions affecting every living thing on this planet will be made, what they think, who they are and how they inform themselves. So far Senator Clinton is much more forthcoming than Mr. Trump. For a start he could release his personal and corporate tax returns. Why is he getting a pass on this?
More good news… Gabby Fringette has returned to her media home here on the Prospect and will be beguiling us with her unusual take on things. And the Fringe DeVita is going to be back writing and making us gnash our teeth with his singular take on local politics and life in general, he is recovering from an illness right now, but his brain is churning out messages to his fingers and soon they will hit the keyboard. So we have Board of Supervisors, Carrie’s Corner, Be Encouraged, Gabby, the Cats, the Others, lots of local news and guest columnists Tom Hastings, Laura Finley, Robert Koehler and Lawrence Wittner. We want you too, is you have an idea or something you want to know or tell just send us an email at email@example.com
