Two items this morning and then this evening I have the post ready for Shale Point repairs.
First, I have been asked by the SLO community to provide an update on the search for George Carpenter. The search will continue today, weather allowing. Horses are not being used because the brush is to thick. One person has asked about a “locals” search and rescue. A couple of our best locals are on the search team, but no, there is no separate “locals” search, but everyone is keeping an eye out, everywhere they go. Monterey County Search & Rescue is very good. My understanding from the “Find George Carpenter” page on FB is that rescue dogs specifically trained for this type of search are being used, which is why Scooter has not been taken up there, but that may change.
Second, Jo Chapman’s house burned down last night. Bixby Ridge, Trotter built house. Sad to hear. Current owner is reported by KION as John Moon. Video shows the house burned literally to the ground I don’t have any further information this morning.
