After digesting the recent announcement on “mortgage payments relief,” I’m wondering why the governor and/or county supervisors aren’t touting relief on property taxes.
I’ve seen a lot of information in the paper regarding the schools, but what I don’t see is a plan for the district to move quickly towards online learning that actually counts.
Today as a human race we are facing some uncertainty. A virus is running uncontrolled amongst mankind with no end in sight -- it truly puts things into perspective.
I have not seen any information posted that details how many people have been tested in Sutter and Yuba counties. It would be helpful if Dr. Luu could provide this info to the Appeal-Democrat to publish so we know where we stand in the community.

Sutter County Sheriff’s Department was down here at the homeless camp harassing homeless people and taking their vehicles that we live in without probable cause or justification. Their justification for this actually was ... “because they can.”
During the 2016 presidential campaign I gradually realized that Trump was becoming the spokesman for our crackpot fringe; and once he was elected I knew that the crackpot fringe was now establishment. Yet, even then I continued to think that the worst he would do was shoot his mouth off ever…
