EDITOR: I have been a subscriber to the Mountain Democrat for some 23 years. Today’s March 28 editorial was about the lowest form of reporting by an alleged news person I have read in all that time. The total piece castigated the people with whom the responsibility of enforcing traffic laws exists.
Those of us that reside in El Dorado County and are foolish enough to get out onto Highway 50 during the weekends are all too familiar with the flatlanders blowing our doors off. People that travel the highway prior to entering Placerville from the west and leaving it to the east are advised by traffic speed limit signs that the maximum is 65 mph; the editor would sell out to all those that flaunt the law for the almighty dollar. Maybe the violators will be angry and won’t come back to El Dorado County and spend their monies.
If the number of CHP cars the Democrat reported are correct, then the Placerville CHP Office received some assistance form Rancho Cordova. Keep it up Chips, and here’s a big thumb at the nose of the Mt. Demo.
