A place we can discuss, bloviate and debate issues and topics of interest.
You can't make this stuff up. The FUE is wrong. How Podunk. Will he now delete his post to try and hide it?The FUE hates the Union newspaper and bashes on them non stop. He posted the following on his blog about the new Union newspaper Visitor Guide. The FUE's claim is false fake news.jeffpelline says: July 2, 2017 at 8:49 pm BTW, on this map, Avanguardia’s tasting room in Grass Valley is in the wrong location. It’s on another street, 163 Mill St.No it's not. Avanguardia’s tasting room is at 209 Main Street, not at 163 Mill St as the FUE claims.
Say what? How can he be wrong? LOL!
163 Mill Street was Bent Metal Winery tasting room until it closed. The space is currently empty
That would be a big mistake for the FUE to make.
Wife and I are at the Thursday Night Market right now. We can confirm that Avanguardia’s tasting room is 209 Main and 163 Mill is an empty store front that was Bent Metal winery. We have visited both in the past.
I guess he needs a correction. LOL!
He just emailed me and said you are a troll and a moron and he is right and you aren't. What was the issue?
...and always remember...."He is so petty because the stakes are so small"!Hey....did you guys know that the internet......the what.....internet is changing the way we communicate! True story bro!

We have visited both in the past.”He and wife ought to look in the window of 163 Mill, where there’s a sign that Avanguardia is coming there.You can’t fix stupid!Or bitchy it seems~!
Yes the issue is so important that Trump used it in Poland today. You cannot make the pettiness of some people up.
The only guy that gives a hoot about the address is the contractor that is doing the tenant improvement and pulling the permit.Jeff, if we could fix stupid you would be normal.
"Avanguardia’s tasting room in Grass Valley is in the wrong location. It’s on another street, 163 Mill St." No it's not it's on Main St.
Well Pelline says you and the Union are morons and this issue is so important I have received numerous private emails telling me so. I think it merits a police blotter! The theft of the storefront!
I see it's possible to post here now. Once again, Avanguardia's tasting room is moving from 209 Main St. to 163 Mill St., and there is an Alcohol Beverage Sign in sign in the window that the supposedly eagle-eyed troll and his wife did not notice. The Union's map did not capture the move, so tourists who read The Union's Visitor Guide this summer will be directed to the WRONG location. If The Union had checked with Avanguardia's owner (a common journalistic protocal) it would have been able to make the correction. The trolls here are defending the indefensible. You can't fix stupid!
I thought you were both philosophically and morally opposed to anonymous posting Jeff!?
....and "protocal"? What the hell is "protocal?Well I'm glad you asked!protocalnoun, verb1. a frequent misspelling of protocol.Dictionary.com UnabridgedBased on the Random House Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2017.
fish,Dirt bags like you don't deserve to be treated with respect or dignity.
I see you, Jeff Pelline, deleted my response to the allegations your loony poster wrote on your blog regarding SOJ and your observation about Lowell Robinson. Now I see why. No dissent or corrections on your blog. I am sorry you are so angry at everyone and every thing. That is not good for the digestion. And really, your posters might as well be anonymous as they make up their names.
Todd,Are you a fool? Why should I post your crap when I came over here merely to correct the record from the idiot who made the first post here.You live in a swamp on this blog.
No I am fine. It appears there is a difference of opinion and yours is no more correct than the man on the street reporting it. But hey, you have a swamp with all those liberal loons you allow to post. And you moderate off opposition so you don't upset your lefty echo chamber. Pot meet kettle.
You elites and fine wine fanciers up here crack me up. Foxbrook at $2.50 a bottle beats the hell out of your $20 - to $50 dollar a bottle stuff.If you were blind folded and did a wine test you would not be able to tell the $50 stuff from the $2.50 a bottle stuff.I'll take that bet as you wont be able to tell.
WOW YOU MOTHER LOATHER, the most hated person who is also an unemployed journalist FUe. You just DESTROYED AN ASPIRING BUSINESS! Way to go you self loving, disgusting pos, EGO driven man child. We wish we could say what we really think. But that would be bad for business in your left wing anarchist town. No wonder there are so many empty stores in your Nevada City. Why cant we get cell reception?
Todd,This is a swamp, not a blog. The loons who comment here wouldn't know their behind from a hole in the wall. That is the extend of their "reporting." lol.
FUE makes another mistake LOL!"That is the extend of their "reporting."
Looks like "The Nations Editor" earned his "Medill F" the day!
Oops.....looks like I earned mine too! ....earned his "Medill F" for the day!Boy....is my face red! (I don't have a masters degree though so it's all good!)
No Pelline, this is a much better rag than yours. A swamp is a wetlands and cleans the water. It porovides habitat for the critters. In comparison your rag is a cesspool and nothing grows there and it stinks.
The "extend" of their reporting? You really are a two faced hypocrite Pelline, and no better than the people you constantly criticize. I thought you were leaving and going back to Berkeley? Need some help? Podunk at its best!
SCOOP: The Avanguardia Winery tasting room is at 209 Main St, not at 163 Mill St as the FUE claimed it was.While it might move in the future the FUE was 100% wrong when he tried to slam the Union newspaper for a mistake when he claimed the Avanguardia Winery tasting room is at 163 Mill St. No it's not on Mill St. The wife and I visited the Avanguardia Winery tasting room on Main St last night at the Thursday market, did some tasting and bought some wine there. The FUE is trying to defend his indefensible mistake. You can't fix stupid!
This blog ought to be renamed "twilight zone."The Avanguardia tasting room is in the process of relocating from 209 Main St. to 163 Mill St. and there is a sign in the window indicating that. You and the wife aren't too observant. People who pick up The Union's Visitor Guide this summer will be directed to 209 Mill St., the wrong location. The Union should have contacted the owner.
You and the wife aren't too observant.Yeah when it comes to delicious food and wine Jeff has the eyes of a Swainson's Hawk! You'd do well not to challenge him! People who pick up The Union's Visitor Guide this summer will be directed to 209 Mill St., the wrong location. Er Mah Gerd.....then they'll call or ask for directions to the place! Jeez Jeff.....lighten up!The Union should have contacted the owner.sigh......still mad at the old "girlfriend" eh! You should move on!
Folks if you want to taste and maybe buy some nice Avanguardia wine today you need to go to 209 Main St. Do not go to 163 Mill St as that is an empty store front. The Avanguardia Winery tasting room is at 209 Main St.
...you've done the lords work today Jeff!
Let's get back to the real issue: If you want to find Avanguardia's tasting room this summer or throughout , do not rely on The Union's 2017-18 Visitor Guide.The map will direct you to the wrong address, as the tasting room is being relocated from 209 Main St. to 163 Mill St. Not only does a sign on the window indicate that, the owner will be happy to tell you about the move. This is sloppy journalism being defended by the "good old boys" who pollute this blog.
Go to Save Mart and buy a case of Foxbook wine and quit acting like you live in Newport Beach. Sorry you fools would stick out like a sore thumb down there with your Walmart Hawaiian shirts.
This is sloppy journalism being defended by the "good old boys" who pollute this blog.Nobody is defending anything! We're merely mocking the mock-worthy who obsesses over little errors while committing a .....dare I say.....shocking number himself!
Hat tip to you Jeff! You've managed to mix it up pretty good here this morning without scurrying back to your catbox with a rash of, " ....... and now fish is saying", "......and now Todd is saying"!That's some real personal growth!
FISH you are so good at putting him in his place. Right on!
The real issue is if you want some Avanguardia wine today you need to go to 209 Main St. The Avanguardia Winery tasting room is at 209 Main St. not 163 Mill St.
Fish it's a new show called "The Real Issue is"
I wonder how much business The Union's 2017-18 Visitor Guide will cost this business as it circulates through the next full year, directing customers to the wrong address. I wonder if The Union has errors and omission insurance. I wonder if the trolls who comment here remotely understand the consequences of this blunder
I wonder if the trolls who comment here remotely understand the consequences of this blunderReally not our concern!
"fish,"You just proved my point. Your are not interested in the issue at hand, you are just interested in being a jerk. And you succeed, time after time. To repeat, this is not a blog, it is a swamp.
Yes this issue is on a par with North Korean nukes. Good to see.
Oh it is a bvlog but Sierra Foothills Report is a cesspool. You really should clean up your before trying others.
Nope,not even close to N.K. nukes, just little children shooting bottle rockets from their parents empty bottles of $50.00 wine.
Your are not interested in the issue at hand, you are just interested in being a jerk.True....so true! And you make it so easy what with your constant pearl clutching and boorish snobby behavior!
To repeat, the real issue is Avanguardia Winery tasting room is at 209 Main St. not 163 Mill St.
Really......where is that tasting room again? Hold on.....I want to get this written down........!Hate to go to the wrong spot in a teeming metropolis like Nevada City!
It's in Grass Valley, not Nevada City. LOL!
Oh crap! Yeah....now I get it now....you might have to walk! Makes perfect sense!
"...now I get it now...."Yuck....that's a sentence fragment worthy of a Northwestern grad! My bad!
What a pack of fools!
Why are you still posting anonymously?BLASPHEMER!
Better than a pack of cigarettes or chili cheese fries.
I think he has lost his noggin. I mean no wonder he was fired from the Union. nd my guess is he left the city too as he wore out his welcome. What a moron at that cesspool of a nothing blog.

Where is the outrage from our local journalists? Grand jury finds that our registrar (Greg Diaz), for the third time, fails to adequately train poll workers...shocking.http://nccourt.net/documents/gjreports/1617-COG-PollWorkerTraining.pdf"Too much class time was spent reading the Guide aloud and not enough on the setup and operation of the equipment." Nice.
Pelline missed that eh? Well he is a pal with Diaz and like all good brown noser "journalists" they have favorites. You'll not see anything there is my guess.
Barry Pruett,How come you don't disclose that you lost to Greg Diaz in every precinct when you ran against him? Ouch!
I was referring to our local journalists...The Union and KNCO and KVMR and Yubanet. I was not expecting Jeff to comment as he and Diaz are friends. It is kind of a big story when Diaz after three grand jury reports still can't train election workers correctly. Pretty sure Diaz had some personal stuff going on as well which have not made it in the paper yet either but I am sure that it will become a campaign issue in the next election.
Yes. I lost to Greg Diaz in every precinct when I ran against him. Lol. And your point is what? I'm not on the grand jury.My goal in 2010 wasn't as much to win an election as to make sure the public knew the kind of serious misconduct that Greg Diaz had been engaged in and demonstrate his lack of competency. And I think that is becoming extraordinarily clear now.
Very well said Mr. Pruett. The Rude Center is what it is and the CDC and Building Department are a social club. They haven't enforced the code for years.Just a bunch of bureaucrats feeding from the public sloop trough, totally useless.
Barry,If Greg wants to win re-election to another term as Clerk-Recorder, he can. He has won by sizable margins each and every time. He also is an elected officer of the California Association of Clerks and Election Officials. He is well respected despite the few partisans who try to tear him down.
Serious man-crush on the Clerk-Recorder? I'm sure Dr. Phil wants to know!
Now that's funny!
He may have some problems this time around Jeff. You know as well as I do...maybe better than I do. ;)
OK, Barry, if you say so. ;) (Whatever ";)" means). Small towns are a hoot!
Small or sorta small towns are a pain in the ass as all the good old boys like it that way and I did not move up here to reinvent the wheel as Nevada county still has square wheels and will into the next century.Perhaps they should the Tijuana director of public works to fix the bloody pot holes?
The employees at the elections office say Diaz is never in the office, that he's most always MIA.
This blog is always heresay and innuendo, some of it crossing a line into libel. Prove that he's "never in the office." And prove why.
Revised version. The employees at the elections office say Diaz is almost never in the office, that he's most always MIA.
This is well known, why the debate?
He gets a nice check. I wonder why he would do that?
Because he gets a nice check and reports to nobody as an elected official. You cant say anything bad about a minority or the Nevada city tin foil hat brigade will be attacking you on peeps.
What is heresay? I am familiar with hearsay and heresy, but heresay seems to be a new legal term with which I am quite unfamiliar. Lol.I've seen him quite a few times at the store in the middle of a work day in jeans and a t-shirt...not in the office.
In your mind, "I've seen him quite a few times at the store in the middle of a work day in jeans and a t-shirt...not in the office" somehow equates to "Diaz is never in the office." Same old bull s*** (AKA hearsay) from our gym school owner turned rural legal beagle.
I never equated anything; you did. I just implied that, based upon my personal experience, there is some truth to the above-referenced allegation, hence no libel by anonymous. Also, you really don't know what hearsay is apparently. Hearsay is defined as evidence not proceeding from the knowledge of the witness. The above-referenced allegation by anonymous is hearsay (not heresy or heresay), as he is asserting as truth that which someone told him. On the other hand, I am a percipient witness which puts my statement outside of the hearsay rule. Thus here endeth the lesson. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. RLB. lol
Hearsay is "Diaz is never in the office." Prove it and prove why Diaz has not been in the office, if so. Let's bring in all the "witnesses" and interview them under oath. What would it turn up? Nothing.You're the only lawyer I know who comments on this blog. That is quite an honor. Now may we shine a light on your life the past year? ROFLOL.
God the chili fry fart stink is sickening, don't let that fat fool, the most hated former journalist FUe. You can see the hippo berkenstock prints all over this line of sniveling. Chili frys and boxed chardonnay stat! ROFLOL
"Hearsay is 'Diaz is never in the office.'" That is exactly what I said, and you're welcome for the legal and grammar lesson. My last year? Blessed to have a happy and peaceful family brother.
I love this fight for the last word. Reminds me of me.
Easy brother. Lol. Have a good weekend. Stay cool
Pelline is truly unhinged. His posts are really odd stuff. And he cannot resist namecalling. Three year old apparently.
Pelline you say is unhinged and I believe unhinged is a reference to his state of mind but to have a state of mind unhinged does it require a mind?I rest my case.
Is it time for the "Help the Move/Tar and Feathers" fundraiser yet? A nice little event down at Gateway Park? Just Fat Bastard and a couple thousand neighbors who are anxious to be rid of "him"?
No I think he may start seeing that no one really like him and a return, voluntarily to Marin may be better. Here in the country we cherish freedom and want less of the liberal hegemony. Even many of the libs here are that way.
I have my Ford 1 ton truck, we could forklift him in the back and deliver him.
You will need a much bigger truck and a crane. A fork lift won't do the job. because he does way too much forklifting on his own.
Your are sick people. I can only imagine how the conversation goes when you reach purgatory. lol.
Having been the "butt" of many jokes from the left I can sympathize.
Your are sick people. Oh Jeff......that's just sad!I can only imagine how the conversation goes when you reach purgatory.I imagine it will go something like....."Not too bad here in Limbo.....get to hang with interesting people from history......you guys seen Pelline?" "Yeah he's two floors below in 'Gluttony' "!"Oh....that explains the smell!" Dante’s First Circle of Hell is resided by virtuous non-Christians and unbaptized pagans who are punished with eternity in an inferior form of Heaven. They live in a castle with seven gates which symbolize the seven virtues. Here, Dante sees many prominent people from classical antiquity such as Homer, Socrates, Aristotle, Cicero, Hippocrates and Julius Caesar.First Circle baby!
Hey Failed Union Editor, when are you going to learn how to spell? You are getting worse every day! What you need to really understand is that you are only getting back the hate and scorn that you have spread in the community since you arrived. Your friends are disappearing and your enemies are multiplying rapidly. It is all your doing Podunk.
Dear Moron,When you going to learn to sign your name? I figure it's because you don't know how to spell it. lol.
Pelline has emailed me that he will no longer post my pertinent comments on his blog until I clean up mine to his liking. I told him adios hypocrite. He really is mentally unstable. Besides he has posted just a couple of my comments to straighten him and his loony posters historical remembrances. Honest to goodness, what a relief. But as long as he has his nutcases posting at his cesspool blog, I refuse to even go look anymore. You can't fix liberal stupid.
Pelline is now stalking me online via email. He is truly unhinged. I have asked him to stop. But to no avail.
No posting from Pelline here until he cleans up that cesspool he calls a blog. No one likes the man. Sad.
Pelline has emailed me that he will no longer post my pertinent comments on his blog until I clean up mine to his liking.Lets not forget the most important point about that! He's perfectly happy to host snark, insults and belittlement on his blog as long as he's not the target! The moment he becomes the focus is the moment the whining starts, the moment decorum matters again!

Yes, the Mecklers are unhinged.
No they are fine people. You are unhinged and way too fat.
Real name thank you.
