A quest for reason and accuracy in letters to the editor, guest editorials and other issues of interest to the citizens of Western Nevada County.

Smart growth, environment lead concerns, writes Olivia Diaz, in a Special Sunday Edition of the Union, October 24, 2004.

Reviewing her vision, I found one significant error, which makes me wonder about the rest of her smart growth vision. See my smart growth update for the Capitol Journal here.
"Nevada County has the highest proportion of residents over 65 in the state of California."
For the Record:

State percentage: 10.6

Nevada County: 17.4

Tuolomne County: 18.5

Lake County: 19.5

Amador County: 18.0

It would appear that Nevada County is bested by at least three Counties, which have higher proportion of over 65 citizens. Nevada County does not "have the highest proportion of residence over 65."

Tell me what you think
