  1. Even a 5-year-old would see that arson is the most likely explanation.

    Oldest residents say there were almost no fires in our Tent City (not to be confused with the old one by the railroad tracks) in the first 6-or-so years. Then, when Tent City started defending itself in OC court, occurrences of fire skyrocketed, frequently under suspicious circumstances. This winter there were no fires between early September and mid-March, when wood-burning stoves are being used the most (and also more liqueur is consumed). Fires often occur just 1-2 days apart…

    Cui bono?

  2. Nothing more needs to be said .we are grateful to all the mayor’s whom have made great progress due to their hard work. The job just needs now to an end NOW. Period!!

  3. When you have a bunch of ppl smoking drugs drinking alcohol in woods it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out who made the”arson” it’s all propaganda that steve and alex are trying to show as if they are victims……everyone use you noodles…..
