blahblah, they didn't have their fate thrust upon them, they CHOSE to go on the trestle instead of staying on the bluffs where the view is very nearly identical.

The dumb thing is they could've gotten the same photos/view by standing on the cliffs to the east of the trestle. There'd have been no danger even when the train passed. There is plenty of space there to cross the tracks and look at the view. There's even the same view without even crossing the tracks at all.

It's so disappointing the tribe feels the need to put up a 12 story building. There's nothing remotely close to that in the Valley. Is there even anything that tall in SB County?
It'll also bring increases in crime, DUI, accidents, traffic, etc.
I'd expect property values will decrease for those who live nearby.
But I guess it's ok because Armenta says they do their best to work with the community (yeah right!). Thanks for nothing.

I'm curious if crusher-destemmers could be made to use the technology available on table saws whereby the blade stops instantly if it hits something soft. They won't even damage a raw hot dog. I know the winery machines don't have a blade like a saw but the technology might work?

loony goes off on a tangent about Bundy and we're no longer talking about the Adventure Pass. . .
On Adventure Pass Foes Claim Victory

The adventure pass was put in place to fund improvements in the forecast. Initially it was run by FS employees.
With outside concessionaires running it and taking their profit, how can it possibly be making any money to fund anything? I want to see the balance sheet on the program, complete with how much the outside vendor is taking, what it has funded in the forest, and so on.
The concessionaires have a racket going and they aren't going to give it up. It's complete and utter BS.
If I drive to the Upper Oso area, park on the public road before the campground, and travel into the back country, I am NOT going to be buying a pass.

Uhh, you miss the point.
You said, "the weather didn't cause the drought, it was usage."
This makes no sense. Usage does not affect how much it rains. Drought it caused by lack of rain, which we have had for the last several winters, including this one when it has scarcely rained at all until last week.
Usage could/does affect how much humans have in storage for our own uses, but it does not cause drought.

The usage caused the drought?
Sooooo, more people using water causes it to not rain?
Interesting theory. May want to put the bong down now.

EB - there may be larger issues involved, but for me the real stink of the Adventure Pass is that it has never done what it was put in place for.
It was started as a pilot program to fund improvements. It was initially run by FS staff, with outside vendors in town selling the pass as well. There have been no improvements that I've seen, or that are listed publicly where we could all see what a benefit this has been (yeah, right). Now it is run by an outside for-profit concessionaire, so how much of the income is even going to the FS for these nonexistent improvements?
p.s. thanks for the suggestion about ignoring the kiosk. I tried to do that once and maybe it was just a bad day to be there, but I had the woman who was there yell at us and stand in front of the car when we tried to go past (this is several years back). I'll have to try it again.
