July 3rd, 2008, one year ago today, the MCSO issued its infamous memo.
All our representative’s offices were closed for the long week-end. I am convinced to this day that the timing was purposeful. Can’t call Dave Potter’s office, can’t call Sam Farr’s office. Who can I connect to change this newly created “police state” in Big Sur. LA Times & San Fran Chronicle both come to mind. So, I call them. I provided the same story, but the LA Times was the most interested. Then, Ross Curtis got arrested.
(To be continued tomorrow.)
One thought on “July 3, 2008”
The 2008 fires seemed to have brought together the Big Sur community in a way previously unseen. The residents’ action in attempting to be a part of the solution of firefighting, and now, fire prevention awareness, educates the rest of us residents along the coast. Here in San G., us residents are trying to raise our vigilance after too many years of ease. Your fires, Santa Barbara’s fires serve as tragic reminder to be prepared.
Thanks for having created this blog, beyond other communities being able to get more information, personally, it just helps us all feel more connected, yes?
