Losing lifestyle thanks to ‘newbies’

-A +A
I have lived in Granite Bay almost 37 years. The newbies in our community say they moved here for the rural atmosphere. They tried to get control burns totally banned. What they did get, which is almost as good as a ban, is that burning is only allowed from the first to the 15th day of the month and only between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The newbies are not content with these very restrictive rules. They call in reports of smoke in some areas. The fire department is dispatched. These bogus calls take firemen and equipment away from their stations and could cause delay in a real emergency call. I am just a regular person living here before there was a grocery store. I had to drive to town to shop. My address has had three different zip codes and two town names. The oldies are losing our country lifestyles more and more each day. This is very sad. Pamela Yuers, Granite Bay
