Union Newspaper, our local gem!

Way back when I first became known in the community for politics I was really a novice about the importance of a newspaper.  I was a busy building contractor and did not pay much attention to the Union.  But when Measure A and B were put on the ballot by newcomers from the big city, all my perceptions changed.  I saw the value of information back in 1978 of a place where the people of the community could voice their opinions.  That became a epiphany of great value to me.

When I got elected in 1984,  I became the target of the Union editor who seemed to have a personal problem with me.  Even though I never new that person.  It was troubling for me and my family and I saw what a determined foe with barrels of ink can do.  But they did not shut me up in their attempts to embarrass this country boy.  I still said my piece and in reality, I knew the paper was important as I never ever thought of shutting it down as some liberals are espousing these days.  So I learned to take my lumps and I knew what the truth was.  I have certainly outlasted the critics.

I have had a subscription for most of my adult life.  I do this even though the paper may be chastising me or the things I believe in (like the hoax of "global warming").  It is important to have the newspaper in the community.  Currently I think they are doing a fine job and remind me of the fine years Jeff Ackerman ran the paper.  Freedom of the press!  Freedom of speech!  I will always be there to do what I can to protect these important freedoms.  The left in our community is always on the ragged edge of negativity.  They have tried to get publishers fired and editors fired.  I never did that and I opposed others attempts to do so.  Hell , Editor John Seelmeyer did his best to wreck my life and I never asked for his dismissal.

I remember when a publisher shed her clothes and jumped into the lake at a early Starry Nights!  She was attractive so all of us guys kept our mouths shut.  She was a important part of the community and we never asked for her removal.

Now the paper has asked many community members to be part of the editorial board.  I think it is great.  We have seen though that when a liberal does not get their way on the Board they do a "take my ball home" and complain and quit.  Poof!  So they have this great venue to get their message out and like little kids they give it up.  Their poor little egos are tainted.  Oh my!

When Jeff Pelline became the Editor of our newspaper there seemed to be a uptick in stories trashing the local community.  I was saddened that the paper seemed to be headed backwards.  How could Jeff Ackerman have hired this person?  Well it did not take to long and Ackerman apparently booted this man from the position.  And the paper was restored to its importance.  Whew!  The community dodged a negative bullet!

Now with the advent of the Internet and other media outlets, we see a concerted effort to disparage and mock the paper.  The mocking is so petty.  A misspelled word or some phrase not meeting the "scrutiny of experts" leads to a apoplectic "former Union editor"!  As well as his loony [posters.  Well at least to the three people that comment consistently on his blog.  He just can't get over being booted and has a real grudge against the paper.  Heck, I was trashed for almost eight years running by a rogue set of editors and never tried what this FUE attempts all the time.

So the lesson to me is this.  Sure we may all be subject to attacks and negatives in print but do we really want to get rid of the medium?  Nope.  We need t protect the valuable things of the community and our Union Newspaper is at the top of that list!

  2. Todd, be assured that the fool you are discussing knows damn well exactly where you live and if you have "gates" on your place or not.He knows this because he has been stalking you for years. He probably goes through your trash when you aren't looking. He only says you have gates because he is not burdened with the truth and thinks he can lessen you in the eyes of his readers. All three of them.

    "Nearly all of them are hard-right, tea-party or State of Jefferson political activists or “all of the above.” Rebane’s blog is used as a tool to whip up the activists. Todd Juvinal’s blog is dominated by anonymous sock puppets — all personal attacks and nasty. On the SOJ discussion on Rebane’s blog, most of the commentary is comprised of personal attacks and nasty comments or outright lies. “Anything goes” with George; he does not moderate. In addition, many of the people hide behind fake names or vague ones such as “Gregory” or “fish.”

    On this blog — posted here and on Facebook — I counted 23 comments, from a broader demographic (yes, a few activists but also school teachers, real-estate agents, artists, successful business people and entrepreneurs like Boga paddle boards, and so on). There was a mix of men and women too......



    Oh jeffy......always making the story about you.

    1. Honestly, the man is unhinged. We all have rent free space in hs noggin. One needs only to read this screed by the FUE to understand why he was booted from the Union Newspaper. He calls us "hard0right" whatever that is. He thinks it is derogatory apparently. If anyone is out of the mainstream it is him. No one cares what he writes but he is fun to make fun of. Such an easy target.

    I am convinced that “fish” (David Larsen of Carmichael) has no life, visiting online with people who are out of his area. He also wrote: “The Voice of the Sierras.” It’s “Sierra,” cretin. Of course, this is what David “writes”: http://www.ncc-1776.org/tle2011/tle603-20110116-02.html


    Your concern is touching....and truth be told you're right....I have no life. I just got rid of my Christmas tree yesterday.

    But seriously jeffy the best part of our interaction is watching you "not get it". You spout "the internet is changing the way we communicate" like a 600 lb. Woody doll with a string in its neck without understanding the notion at all. The Old School Media gatekeepers (that would be you) don't get to dictate who says what anymore. Your day is done. Oh and that I don't live in "Quainty Town" (Thanks Toz) yet still comment....well that's the other part of "the internet is changing the way we communicate" dullard. I never would have happened had I not seen your fat puss in the Bee. You're presence (other than the Obits or Food sections...with an apple jammed in your hole) was only making a shitty paper even shittier.

    Oh and while Sierras may be incorrect but at least I don't Memory Hole my errors.

  7. Fish you nailed it. The Fat Bastard from Clay Street, has proclaimed several hundred times now, "the internet has changed the way we communicate. LOL" Yet he doesn't have a clue as to what his words mean. On the internet, "community" is not defined by geographic boundaries much less some self defined radius from the Lord Of Lard (LOL). The internet is a community unto itself and shat for brains can't comprehend that on the net Carmichael California is the same distance from Nevada City as Carmichael Australia and both are as close as the screen on a lap top in Lefty's.

    After reading the last post from “fish,” I’m certain he needs considerable counseling, along with some anger management training. Between “fish,” Don Bessee, the global warming “deniers” and the rest, there seems to be a disproportionate number of unhinged characters in the local hard-right political blogosphere. Perhaps Donald Trump will find a place for them in his cabinet.


    Perhaps you're right jeffy. Maybe a good talk with somebody would help. Maybe your friend Dr. Phil....we all know how you seem to fixate on the day time TV performers.

    Do you still have his number? ;-)

    But hey......on the positive side at least I'm not eating myself into a swimming pool sized early grave.

  9. The queen of crazy cat ladies and eco nut Heidi Hall is going to regret the day scoopy swung his tonnage in line to support her candidacy. His record of being the kiss of death to campaigns is epic. In the last cycle alone he was for measure S and his prognostications were 180 degrees from the outcome (before he got in a fight with that pot group). Poor little Fran Cole got the endorsement of death from scoopy and she went down in flames exactly like measure S. Then you have Jim , friend of Leland yee, Furths electoral successes and who can forget Terry Lamphiers stellar career after the scoopy touch of death! Go on big boy keep actively supporting your favs it helps keep the County on the Right track. ROFLOL

He is going to give Firth apoplexy. Hell, next the FUE is going to say he is a Reagan republican! Then next year he will say he was for Cruz/Trump all along. Yes siree a memory hole bigger than his pie hole, now that's saying something. ROFLOL.

    This cracks me up! Gregory writes: “I’ve also never lorded my education over anyone;” Lacks self-awareness. I increasingly find that the commentators in the local hard-right blogosphere — all six of them — have nothing to say. Or do.


    Or do. Excellent point! I've been giving a lot of thought to producing a magazine that shows other people doing things.....mountain biking, yoga, snowboarding....things I hate and drawing a hard contrast with the things I love....waxing poetic about an outdoors in which I spend no time and consuming mass quantities of food and drink. At the end I'd planned on just leaving them willy nilly at locations near where I live so people with birds will have them for use as cage liner.

    Let me know if you think this is a viable business strategy!

      BTW, our magazine finished the year with record growth. The Truckee Chamber will be running our content on their website, and we’ll be adding Amador and ElDorado counties to our footprint. This morning we’re all going skiing at Homewood, which has eight inches of news snow. Cheers.

    3. Does Homewood have a tank to drag the most hated unemployed journalist fue's blobish self up a hill? Do they use surfboards for his elephantine feet? The logistics of moving that mountain of man flesh must be daunting. The truth is more likely that other people are going skiing and the FUE will be investigating food porn subjects all day. Can we look forward to an expose of the worst chili cheese frys served by Homewood? Enquiring minds want to know! ROFLOL

  13. Yeah, Seelmeyer was not good for The Union, but look how much worse it got when Ackerman felt sorry for Herb Caen's coffee boy and gave the Fue a job for a year. That was the low point in the 150 year history. Getting rid of the Fue was so needed and now Hemig has been a great step forward. The Fue hates that he was such a failure and so disliked by everyone he worked with.

  14. Paul Emery is now trying to rewrite history and his involvement in defeating a free market affordable housing project I was trying to build 23 years ago in the Glenbrook Basin. These liberals fools need to reread the newspaper. Anyway, he and hid "progressive" hypocrite friends were supporting a incumbent for Supervisor and I was supporting and raisinhg money for Fran Grattan. These Libs decided to use my project to bludgeon Fran into a defeat and it did not work. I was also starting CABPRO and they wanted to smash it. But hey if we did not have hypocrites like Emery we would have to make them up. All crying for the very kind of housing they screech incessantly about.

    We were presenting a project at the time they said they wanted. Yeah right. Anyway I withdrew the project as it became evident they simply wanted to taint Fran. She won. So their silliness and selfishness did not work in the long run. I would suggest they are the responsible parties in the homelessnees in the county.

      He has my name in the SOJ article which means he can't even read my position . I have stated it many times. IU am not in favor of another state. My position is for the SCOTUS to redo Reynolds. So I guess we all can see why his sorry ass was booted from the Union. He is incapable of doing the research necessary for a "journalist" to do. What an idiot. And his hard left positions don't fit with the county population as we in the Conservative branch does.

    3. And so it begins. I think this has been a fun political season so far and I hope we have many more twists and turns. Sanders and Clinton in a dead heat. Cruz on top of Trump. Rubio coming on. Now on to New Hampshire. We get to see a wide variety of views from the unbridled capitalism of Trump to the pseudo communism of Sanders.


      We all get to see the lack of education from our colleges though. The colleges apparently scorn the gifts of capitalism and praise the socialism. What could explain the rabid applause of Bernie Sanders by the students? Since he will tax them into oblivion once they start a career and he will send that money to Zimbabwe. We are allowing the colleges to pollute their minds and ruin the next generation.

    4. If anyone wants to read the nutty leftwing morons just travel over to Pelline's blog. He seems to like these loons and of course we on the right no why. Here is an example of one of his loony posters as the attack the local paper and we who believe "climate change" is a hoax.

      "Joe Koyote says:
      February 2, 2016 at 12:23 pm

      The point some people seem to be missing is that the entire “climate denial” industry (think tanks, web sites, columnists, fox news, fake science) is a hoax, not the other way around. It is the direct result of Exxon and the oil industry’s decades long (since the late 70’s) attempts to cover up their own scientific data supporting the greenhouse gas theory and seed doubt about the science to preserve long term profit and equity. Thus, life and civilization as we know it for the entire human race has been put in a precarious situation so that the wealthy few (62 people have more wealth than the lower half of the planet combined) can continue to play monopoly. The Union should be reporting on that."

      Having never talked to Exxon or been lobbied or paid by them, all I can say is the poster is simply a liberal extremist .oon with a conspiracy complex.

    5. And now the loon Tony Loro is attacking me on the Union's comments regarding my responses to Norm Sauer article on "global warming". This guy is a true loony tune.
