Paradise Lost

I'm sorry Bob Scheer ("Golden Oldie," July 28) wrote so beautifully and made Nevada City sound like paradise. What he didn't mention was our expensive and inadequate garbage dump, our overburdened sewage system and the fact that your well may run dry.

Nevada City used to be paradise. In my opinion, the damage of extensive housing developments, shopping centers and re-zoning has changed the face of this area already. Though it may look great compared to L.A., readers and visitors should be aware that there are only so many houses available, traffic is already crowded on our highways and Utah has prettier views.
