Jeff “Podunk” Pelline is all aflutter that his magazine was called “classy” in, of all places, The Union.
The word was used by Lorraine Jewett in her column, “Lorraine’s Lowdown,” where never is found a discouraging word. Lorraine speaks for herself, not The Union. As the paper continually reminds readers, opinions expressed by columnists are their own and don’t necessarily reflect the viewpoint of management.
But what’s really interesting is that Jewett made the comment in the context of reporting Jeffy’s membership in the Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce, an institution he has regularly trashed on his blog.
Jeffy had it in for Keith Davies when he ran the chamber with his wife, Robin Galvan-Davies. In Pelline’s accounting, Davies was just a front man for the good old boys who run the town and retard progress. Here’s just one example of Podunk’s bile; there are plenty more if you’re interested: https://sierrafoothillsreport.com/2014/06/09/incoming-district-3-supervisor-miller-jumps-in-the-pool-on-election-night-its-a-small-world-after-all/
Davies has since moved onto other ventures, but his wife is still running the chamber. You have to wonder what she thought when Jeffy’s membership application showed up in the mail, and you have to wonder what he thinks he can gain after trashing the outfit all these years.
But business is business, and this is a small town. What a hoot!
