  1. Kate-
    How did you get this info? I haven’t seen an official update from anyone at CalTrans today…This totally messes with PV School’s attempt to have regular school on Fridays. Last Friday was the first time in weeks that the Lucia kids were able to attend school. We were looking forward to having those students attend classes on Fridays, the only day they can get here. This new schedule imposes a much earlier start time and much later end time to the Friday school day, which was already a much longer day than normal. We will have the Lucia kids here from 8am until 5:45pm, unless the parents decide not to send them. That’s almost 10 hours. That’ll be a bit of a challenge for our K – 3rd grade group….

  2. This is an important issue that sheds light on the ongoing discussion of how Big Sur (or as I term it, the currently occupied Big Sur Nation ) looks towards and deals with the future. As we saw with the Pfeiffer Gulch Bridge, issues and solutions have been imposed on the population without their input by a combination of “agencies” in conjunction with certain local landowners exerting undue political influence…
