Again, the Mountain Democrat has failed to provide important information to its readers and the residents of the Georgetown Divide. Yesterday (Sunday, June 1) the Auburn Journal published two articles with important information for the Divide residents. The first article is about the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office establishing a substation in Georgetown and the second item, on page A7, reports that the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office is asking residents to register for emergency notifications through its office of Emergency Services alert system.
Both of these articles are very important to the safety of all El Dorado County, but specifically to the Divide; why has this information not been reported in the Democrat? Why is it that the Democrat continually seems to forget that the Georgetown Divide is part of El Dorado County? Yes, you have published a few other articles recently, but why so few when you seem to cover everything that happens in El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park and Shingle Springs and a few other locations?
Additionally, the Mountain Democrat doesn’t usually do a good job of reporting accident information, you must have a police scanner in your office or assigned to one of your reporters?
Please don’t tell me that you rely on the Georgetown Gazette to cover everything that happens on the Divide; the Gazette usually does a good job covering local news, but doesn’t always get to the bigger issues.
