A visit with the Journal’s frequent letter contributors. Lives in: North Auburn Job: Retired from U.S. Air Force having served in Vietnam; retired from McClellan AFB logistics; currently substitute teaching high school with the court school program Favorite topics: “I?feel that the citizens are not heard, much less listened to by our so-called leaders, especially at the local level. Our board of supervisors is not transparent. The decision of a “big box” store was addressed in the mid-90s and rejected with the EIR. Why is it again on the table? I am a very disgusted writer.” Does for fun: Member and in many cases life-member of several fraternal and service organizations, including Ben-Ali Shrine, Sacramento; Masonic Lodge Nevada City No. 13; Veterans of Foreign Wars and Disabled American Veterans. Fan of all sports, especially Hillmen football; has cat and pygmy goats Hutchy and Bailey. He’s played Santa Claus for years and goes to juvenile hall “each Christmas eve with Mrs. Santa and my favorite elf.” Most recent letter: “Washington gives an F,” May 11.
