I was born in Nevada County in 1938 and grew up there and in Idaho until I joined the Air Force in 1960. I returned to Nevada County after 20 years in the Air Force retiring as a LtCol in 1980 with my wife and four daughters. We built our dream house and became part of the community, serving on various boards and commissions.
I started blogging in August 2004, after tiring of the fight with The Union to get my conservative Other Voices and Letters to the Editor published. Now after 35 years of being back in Nevada County, we have moved to Placer County, were the economy is booming and building is going on every where, unlike the dying communities in Nevada County.
For now I plan to continue writing the Sierra Foothill Commentary, but from a different perspective, from outside the County rather then inside the County. I hope my dedicated 15 readers find that acceptable. If not, let me hear from you in the comments section.
