Mountain Messenger (good news rules) 9/27/17

The Mountain Messenger is the most read newspaper in Sierra County according to a poll conducted by the Western Alliance of Truthiness in 2016/17. Many advertisers were pleased with this news as they rely on newspaper advertising for their business profitability.  The past few weeks have been especially productive with news and events throughout the county and there just might be a slight breath before the Fall stuff begins… not very long though, there is the FEAST, and then OktoberFest and then Liz’s birthday, Miss Jody’s the December 7th San Francisco Opera- Girls of the Golden West starring Juanita or at least she has a couple of acts, lots of Downievillians are attending, so order your ticket and be there and have the opportunity to ask Don Russell for his autograph.
