Don’t build on nature’s doorstep

This proposed development on Highway 49 (Bohemia retail project) will bring jobs, but it will also bring more traffic. With more population you have more problems, a very simple t ...

No room for more big box stores

Another big store is coming to North Auburn. This is a mistake. Highway 49 is already in gridlock. More problems will come. It’s another example of profit over people. Developer ...

Reader: Flood county with discontent

Here we go again. Top county employees get overpaid (Journal, June 23). A couple of them make more than the governor. This is a scam! While laying off average workers, these people ...

Picture Auburn homeless statue

This is an idea for a statue in Auburn: a homeless person. Since we ignore them, this would be a fitting tribute. We need to stop glamorizing entertainment and focus on the people ...

Thoughts on a new year

Why do we celebrate New Year’s Eve? Is it to forget yesterday’s wrath? Or in denial of yesterday, thinking tomorrow will be better because we have an understanding of changin ...

The Black & White Ball is now history. Some are glad to hear this while others may feel deprived at a chance to party. But supposedly this was a benefit for charity, not an excuse ...

Pet ownership is responsibility

Animals fill our void in life. They provide companionship and joy when we are lonely. They offer comfort when there isn?t any. They make us feel good when we need escape from ourse ...

Letter writer wants to be voice for the unheard

Writer, philosopher and humanitarian are all words one could use to describe Auburn resident, Allen Cassidy. Cassidy has been writing letters to the editor to the Journal for the ...

No way to treat a panhandler

Panhandling in Auburn could be resolved the right way. Issuing citations is not the answer but investing in people is. Spending millions on renovation is a mistake. This money cou ...

We fund their paychecks

Yes, I agree with Allen Cassidy (Reader Input, June 26). We, the people, do need to rise up and express ourselves. Maybe someone needs to ask these “Placer County executives” ...

Draining poor to enhance themselves

Several Placer County executives will receive a pay raise (Journal, June 25). Most of them make over $100,000 a year. While reducing county services for the poor, they receive a p ...

Worry about fire, not nudists

Here is something for the city of Auburn to consider. Instead of worrying about the nudists in the American River Canyon, we should be concerned about the fire hazard and the safet ...
