Sierra County Prospect was founded in 2008 by Laurenc DeVita and Liz Fisher. In June of 2012 Fisher took over the main helm and DeVita got to relax and become a Fringe Editor. The site became sierracountyprospect.org which still continues to confuse people but they eventually figure it out.
DeVita, the Fringe Editor, still at large, Dedicated to the hopeless cause of the sovereign individual. In January 2016 DeVita established a new site http://www.resilientsierra.com/home.html and chooses to be an occasional contributor to SCP.
Fisher, the current Honcho Editor, does all the work, occasionally writes, takes stands on issues and knows more than DeVita cause she’s older. Dedicated to equality and fairness. Life can be fair if we all work together. firstname.lastname@example.org
Both have a history of working for the Mountain Messenger during the early 90’s.
This newspaper tells the truth as clearly as we see it.
Thomas Jefferson, the architect of our modern concept of liberty, insisted on a free press, but hated newspapers. He once said, ironically, “The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.”
However, Jefferson also said, “The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure.”
In the spirit of Jefferson, we’ll hope to provide enough agitation to keep the waters pure.
