  1. This is so sad, even more so coming just days after the senseless death on Christmas day of Ronil Singh in Newman. It seems like both Ms. Corona and Mr. Singh were such promising young people motivated by community service.

  2. I think it is illustrative of their sense of community that in 37 comments on the Sierra Dragon’s Breath[e] blog about Ronil Singh almost all of them are attacks on you Jeff rather than a memorial to Mr. Singh.

    1. It’ is labeled “Right Wing II” on the Nevada County Voices aggregate website — a generous assessment. Ha!
