I liked going to Limekiln on the Big Sur Coast. And now they're closing Railtown 1897 ? What will become of the restored historic trains and equipment?
Man, this state is so f-ucked up I'm embarrassed to be a resident.
From what I’ve been told by park personal, the parks will still be maintained, just on a more limited basis. This is all political if they are correct. Our skewed media promotes all this. Vote for “them” and parks will stay open, vote for “those” and parks will stay closed. Bull! I work for a public utility; believe me, there is a lot of BS which management pushes that the public will never know about. The waste at the political level AND management level is huge IMO. Sure there are some worthless blue collar workers but it’s the people that work in the field that make things run. I’m not saying there is no spot for management, only that the work force needs to be run by a limited group. Scale down useless positions in the upper tier. There are a gob of them. Its one of California’s major problems.
