Re: “Bridgeville

This REPORTER?? needs to take a class in journalism. Reporters are suppose to report the facts, not innuendo, not hearsay, and not out right lies. Linda Stansberry did not interview any member of the Lapple family, the present owners, or any of the residents of the town. She did a one-sided interview with someone at the Community Center (that is not a resident and have their own agenda). Many of the FACTS in this article show that no research was done. In this article she quotes an article from a 1978 Connecticut newspaper, REALLY, like a newspaper that far away is going to be reporting the facts on a little town in California with any insight. You have slandered and maligned the Lapple family, the town (which is not just the 25 or so people on Kneeland Rd. by the way, as your Photoshop picture indicates) and the residents. Oh, and by the way, the cemetery is in no where near the river and certainly not in danger of sliding into the river! NOW, let me give you some FACTS, 3 of the 8 houses in Bridgeville were brought back up by the present owners. With the help of licensed plumbers, electricians, family members, residents, and friends, the 3 houses were brought back up with permits and passed all inspections. Now to your ASSUMPTION that the two remaining houses that have not been brought back up. As per the licensed County Inspector, both houses CAN be brought back. So, my question to you, "When did you become a licensed County Inspector? I totally agree with Mr Lapple, I also love a good fiction, but this article is pure garbage lacking facts in many areas. There is a misconception that the owners are making money on Bridgeville. BIG SURPRISE, By the time they pay the property taxes ($10,611.44), water rights, fire protection and constant repairs, the family is in the red each month. They have to pull from their own savings just to pay the bills. They have deleted their savings and have now hit their retirement accounts. Yes, they are trying to sell before it completely drains every penny they have.
