“As I drove by many, many days past, I wondered why such a well known and well loved icon was being left to such blight. I wondered why it was left to the vandals to have their moment of “jollies” to break out the glass in every single window – yet nobody saw a thing! To those of us who remember The Confidence Inn I want to say I am ashamed of whoever made the conscious decision to defame it as you did. I pray that someday you make repentance to people who not only owned and operated that business but those of us who enjoyed stopping in once in a while. Today, without any public notice, which possibly it wasn’t required, I drove by to see it being demolished. I only had a moment to reflect back on the days spent having a bite to eat or a libation of sorts and it was sad to see it go. Our community is changing, and quickly I might add! Our trees are gone, our long time restaurants have gone by the wayside. I hope you all have taken pictures so those of us who still love posterity have something to reminisce over.” -Micki Rucker, Sugar Pine resident, local business owner and Mi Wuk Sugar Pine Fire Protection District Board Member.
