Hank broke his column up into several stories this week. In the first he chides the county Department of Health for covering up for the Baywood Golf & Country Club over the virus outbreak even when the Club was perfectly candid and forthcoming. The County argued that it basically only has to provide the public with information on what it deems to be a need-to-know basis.
And the ad hoc rail/trail cleanup is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 10:00, but there may be a snag. Bracut owner Rick Hess actually owns part of the line. As there hasn’t been a train over the tracks for years, his attorneys believe that the easement has reverted back to him. He’s all for trails, but he’d like to discuss the matter with the trail people before they show up. Hopefully they contacted him.
And Steve Harris, rep for Operating Engineers Local No. 3, will not be entering the Second District race for supervisor as previously speculated. He’s been transferred to San Jose. He endorses Estelle whom he believes will do well by labor.
Lastly, Hank elaborates a bit on the Vagina Monologues/Arkley Center issue. The Arkley Center representatives say that it’s not the subject matter which was objectionable, but what they say amounted to the negotiation antics of the play’s director, Helena Class. The controversy has been the subject of a long and contentious thread over at Heraldo’s.
Meanwhile elsewhere in this week’s NCJ some whippersnapper named William S. Kowinski wrote a positive review for the new Dr. Who series. But Dr. Who hasn’t been good since…., well…., since Saturday Night Live was good.
When did I become such a curmudgeon?
