I find your coverage of the Madera County Grand Jury report and contents very interesting.

On Tuesday June 4, the Grand Jury foreman made a public comment during the Board of Supervisors meeting about the process and laws surrounding the process of Grand Jury investigations, yet nothing appeared in your newspaper at all.

Then on Wednesday, you printed a letter from a former board member complete with giant headlines, and negative content regarding current county officials.

He suggests that as a former/retired county employee he has special knowledge of county business, which may be true, and that his opinion is right and other past retired county folks are wrong? What makes him right and them wrong? Maybe a current financial arrangement? Could he be protecting his own interests?

I don’t understand the logic in your covering of this story. It appears to be manipulated and slanted one way.
