Just another bunch of baloney, in my book. Don't our officials have better issues to discuss, than this? As I said before, we should be addressing the issues of keeping the roads and lands open so we can continue to visit all of our favorite ghost towns!

How about more educational programs that helps kids learn more about California's past and its historic places? How about a program that will help educate people about why we need to protect our historic places and structures rather then vandalize them? Or how about a program that will help protect the unprotected ghost towns that are still standing? Or a program staffed by volunteers that routinely checks the status of a ghost towns/historic places and reports vandalism, cleans the site of visitors trash and/or creates an educational 'plaque' or brochure so people can learn about the site and also so those 'bad people' know that the place is being watched. Why not? Instead our money goes to people in Sacramento so they can spend the day arguing what is California's official ghost town...

The biggest problem to me is that Bodie gets crowded enough on the weekends without having more people drawn to it.
