Reports from the Other Side of the Lake

Well, I got a gander at the ad in the Big Bear Grizzly soliciting funds for Fawn Park. Hmm. What do you think about fund solicitations for a park that is NOT open to the public or locals?

Perhaps there are going to be massive demonstrations with pickets and misty eyed children gazing longingly through the barrier fence into Fawn Park. Just in case I missed the reopening of Fawn Park, I took a specific trip into town to check if it had been opened again on the sly…Nope, still has the “Park Closed for Today” signs up. Those signs and barriers have been up almost six months now.

IMHO (in my humble opinion) I think the Grizzly and Bear Valley News should get some letters to the editor from the groups and persons who have sent in money and are upset by the continued closure of Fawn Park and the failure to deliver on promises made regarding the use of the park to residents and the community.

In Other News
I was pleased to dine at Sweet Basil Bistro today. Yummy! Sally (one of the owners and the chef) came over to visit with us as we were finishing. The place is worth the trip across the lake. Currently they open at 11am six days a week. She is pondering what day to close so share your opinion while you are there…

Speaking of which, I think I mentioned how we hate anticipating a great meal or shopping experience only to find the establishment closed in direct conflict to signs on the door or the outgoing message on the answering machine.

One of my favorite dining places has fallen into the “bad behavior” category for closing on a day they advertise they are open. All of us understand emergencies but now they have lost the business as I go elsewhere rather than risk taking the drive–only to have to turn around and come home–or spend my money elsewhere.

I know there was something else I was going to chat about but I forgot what it was…
