Barry Pruett and his family have been attacked almost weekly by a local liberal blogger who is a new comer to our community. He came with an attitude about how things should be rather then what they really are. This is a real problem for liberals, they view the community as they wish it to be, rather then what it really is. Barry has written an excellent rely on his blog Nevada County Introspective about integrating into a new community. A lesson our local lefty newcomer should take into consideration.
Full Disclosure: I was born in Nevada City a long time ago, attended school here, although I did not graduate from high school in Nevada County. After a 20 year Air Force career I brought my family back to Nevada County in 1980. We determined of all the place we had lived in the US, this was the best place to continue raising our family. We worked hard to integrate ourselves back into the community, serving on boards, commissions and site councils, including Ellen serving on the Grand Jury and I did two tours on the Transportation Commission. I was also a long time ERC volunteer and part time newspaper columnist. I have been blogging about community issues now for ten years, starting in August if 2004.
