LAST NIGHT'S CASINO MEETING — STANDING ROOM ONLY.

Here is what the media is reporting about last night's big turnout at the Community Meeting sponsored by JAC.  It was a VERY good meeting, and a lot of new information (at least for me) was shared with the standing-room only crowd.  Speakers included JAC Leaders, Glenn Revel and Darla Kasmedo, Pastor Gary Musser (Jamul Community Church), Supervisor Dianne Jacob, Atty. Pat Webb

The meeting lasted just over an hour and was information-packed, so I'll need some extra time to check and make sense of my notes. 

Watch this space.  —KH

LARGE AMOUNT DEBRIS ON LOWER DEERHORN VALLEY RD.

7:15 AM
DEERHORN VALLEY RD just east of HONEY SPRINGS
http://eepurl.com/cfoaO9
Large amount of debris in roadway. Appears to be clay pots. (?!) Stay safe. Be alert. Usually it's deer or dogs or coyotes. Today, clay pots.

Or maybe not... this from an earlier driver:   
"Going down the road this morning someone lost their entire load. It seemed to be a playhouse or a chicken house. It was big and blocking one lane coming up Deerhorn Valley Rd. Looks like it slipped off their trailer coming up the grade. There were a couple of guys turning trailers around and by the “house”. I assume they have it cleaned up by now, but they could have lost all matter of items before they lost the entire load. People underestimate the value of a tie down, and the steepness of that grade J"

THOSE THAT RAN TO HELP...

Remembering those lost and the heroism of those who ran toward the chaos instead of running away…
We will never forget.

LABOR DAY SATURDAY — 3 CRASHES ALREADY

It's noon on Saturday — the first day of the Labor Day Weekend 2016.

Already three Antler Alerts have gone out reporting crashes in our backcountry.

As the weekend goes on, there are likely to be more impaired drivers and those unfamiliar with backcountry roads. A terrible combination.  

And there this is without any casino traffic.  Yet.

PLEASE BE SAFE.
