Friends of Historic Hangtown do not represent me

EDITOR: For months and years Sue Taylor and the other Friends of Historic Hangtown claim they represent Placerville. Not only do they not represent me, they don’t represent the entire town of Placerville — we each speak for ourselves. Make no mistake, there’s nothing “friendly” about these people. They are flat earth thinkers who have […]

Lenzmen are a hit in Hangtown

“Hallelujah Hangtown” Editor’s note: this is Part 4 of a four-part series on the life and music of Val Pease. Placerville had a lively local music scene in the 1960s and 1970s.

Hangtown editorial in Bee

EDITOR: I just read the “hit” piece on our town written by the elitist editorial board of the Sacramento Bee.
