GOOD NEWS – Effective immediately- Wells Fargo Bank in Downieville has changed its’ noon closing to 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. due to customer concerns about the previous entire noon hour closure.
BAD NEWS: Effective July 8th Wells Fargo Bank in Downieville are changing their hours open to 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
It’s not clear if this means the employees will have no lunch break and may be losing working hours resulting in less income… you know corporate thinking is just unfathomable. We like Cici and Suzanne, and we really really miss Mindy. Maybe Downieville should just secede from Sierra County and establish our own bank and reopen the gas station. I guess that’s extreme but it’s really difficult for residents when businesses who don’t have owners and management living and working in the county make decisions with no concern of negative impacts on the community.

Register to vote, don’t give away your ability to help government make the right decisions. I encourage you to get involved in the political process. There is nothing special or extraordinary about those people in Congress, they are you and me, people who just stepped up and volunteered to do the job. Start right away, get involved locally, learn what needs to be done, volunteer in a campaign, find out what the political parties stand for, think about what might make our planet a better place for us humans. Stay open to ideas, understand working together is important, compromise is a good thing, stubbornness is not. “There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why… I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?” — Robert Kennedy
