  1. Dear Editor,

    I read that putting together a weekly news “paper” whether it be true paper pulp or electronic is one tough job. I appreciate your willingness to sacrifice yourself to this mighty endeavor. (Millie gets plaudits for getting that Mess out on practically her own.)

    Yes, this was a great edition. That is not just because you ran a great article on our son, TIm Guffin, and ran the article about the upcoming Downieville Library Community Read (“The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”). You are a true investigative reporter. (You called and emailed TIm for more of the scoop.) You always have great pictures to start us off and your reporting about Sierra County government (which is not shut down) is very readable and astute (I like that word, astute.)

    We appreciate your efforts, my friend. I hope you put out many more editions.
