In May I wrote “Is The Union freelancer Lorraine Jewett gearing up to run for clerk recorder”? “I keep wondering whether the ongoing rumors are true that Lorraine is gearing up to run for Nevada County Clerk-Recorder,” the post continued. “If true, she’s being given a good platform for her return to local politics to ‘build a base.’”
I was reminded of this when I read what was more of an advertisement than a news article that Lorraine wrote about the Grass Valley Chamber this week. “Greater Grass Valley Chamber: Not your grandpa’s Chamber” (despite a Norman Rockwell reference). Missing were details about trends in membership, public funding, or thorough reporting. It was a “one source story,” except for a single quote from a Grass Valley merchant.
Who edited this article? Now it’s time for The Union management, including publisher Don Rogers and editor Brian Hamilton, to ask Lorraine about her plans.
