St. Louis wins 10-9 in 11 innings with a homer. We’re going to Game Seven.
We received the Nevada City Chamber ballot in the mail yesterday. I was pleased to see it’s all business — no petty politics. In recent years, the Chamber had been caught up in a wicked political ebroglio that put “big fish in small town” egos — some of them from outside Nevada City — ahead of the chamber’s nonpartisan mission. In fact, a coup was in the works, but it fizzled.
This year’s ballot confirms a “back to business” approach. One example: Chuck Shea’s and Gary Tintle’s collaborative efforts to draw the military here. We are happy to donate a weekend at our cabin to the annual chamber fundraiser — as we did last year. Thanks to Cathy and her staff for all you do.
