Letter to the Editor: Who is and#8220;somebodyand#8221;?

We have lived in Tahoe Donner full time for 20 years and have seen a lot of changes over that time. Although not even close to being perfect, the condition of most of our properties is better now than then. We have had many neighbors come and go, not dead, just gone, during that time. A common conversation goes something like this: and#8220;That is really a problem, and#8216;somebodyand#8217; should do something about it.and#8221;

When asked if they had issued a complaint the answer was always and#8220;I donand#8217;t want to get involved.and#8221; So, who is this and#8220;somebodyand#8221; person? It is you and me. Nothing happens until and#8220;somebodyand#8221; makes it happen. My original intent was to publish this in the Tahoe Donner News. However, as I am a TD committee member, I am forbidden to have my letter published in the TD Newsletter.

Many thanks to the Sierra Sun for publishing it.

Paul Thomas
