Celebrate Cornish Christmas in Grass Valley

GRASS VALLEY… it is all about Cornish Christmas over a few select nights. There are still some to go for 2017, which is a good year to make your first visit to the festival, given that it is the historic happening’s big 50th anniversary. You can visit on Friday, Dec. 8, Friday, Dec. 15, or Friday, Dec. 22, knowing that there will a host of places to buy food during the 6 to 9 p.m. affair and a host of places to shop. Chestnuts roasting? That’s a thing in the northern Gold Country town’s most merry of large-scale parties. Choirs revisiting the carols we know every last lyric to? Yep, they’ll be there.

Cyber Security Forum in Grass Valley on Oct. 25th

More than one in three Americans were hacked in the past year and a quarter of these incidents cost victims over $1,000, according to data from Zogby Analytics. Incidents included viruses, unwanted software, and cyber extortion, with many victims having to pay to unlock fraudulently encrypted data.

That’s why the Greater Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce, joined by Grass Valley Mayor Howard Levine and District 3 Supervisor Dan Miller will host a Cyber Security Forum on Wednesday, October 25th. The informative meeting will take place from 7 :00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Grass Valley City Council Chambers and will equip citizens to protect themselves from being a victim.

Community gathers to support Dan Miller’s re-election

Dan and Roxanne wish to express their sincere thanks to everyone who came out to attend the recent fundraiser. There was a power outage the night of the gathering, but in true Grass Valley style, the fundraiser went on with illumination provided by candle light. The evening was fun and elegant providing a good time and a good cause for all who were able to join.

Dan Miller: Nevada County does support Hospitality House

In a recent response by Brad Peceimer (Other Voices) to my opinion piece regarding the local cannabis industry pitching in, he stated “Nevada County provides zero income to Hospitality House operational programs.”

I’m not sure what he means by operational programs, but I do know what funds the county has designated specifically for Hospitality House.

For the record, the county has designated this year exactly $244,811 for operational costs and programs for Hospitality House. This includes a direct contract with Hospitality House, a staff therapist provided by the county, funding for Turning Point and the CalFresh program. Not to mention that county staff works very hard on maintaining a positive working relationship with the Hospitality House leadership team.

It is regrettable that the public is being provided with false information. The true facts are available in the counties recently passed budget and can be accessed on the county website.

Again, let me state, we should be in this together. We need to work as a community to solve and resolve issues and problems facing us.
