A visit with the Journal’s frequent letter contributors. Lives in: Auburn. “Came here in 1988 to be normal folk again.” Job: “White-haired, silver-tongued retiree. Graduated UCLA, worked seven years in Australia and 25 here in environmental issues and water rights. I was former deputy executive director of the State Water Resources Control Board.” Favorite topics: “My first letter was about a senior center we needed. I’ve written that the fee structure of the Placer County Water Agency doesn’t give any incentive for conservation. ... It means more with opinion if you put your name on it. People spend their lives driveling on the Web.” Most recent letter: “A business lesson in evolve or perish,” April 3
