Railtown 1897 State Historic Park is on a list of California State Parks proposing to close.

The ground of the baseball diamond began to sink as children played on the field. Park caretakers were notified and it was soon discovered that a 7 foot by 6 foot hole covered by a large boulder had opened up. The hole is thought to be a mine shaft 200 feet deep with a false bottom 14 feet down.

You thought I was against taxpayer subsidies to companies like BrightSource and NextEra because I have a principled objection to energy subsidies in general?

No, no, no: I don't like subsidies to BrightSource and NextEra because they're hurting the environment. The in-fighting between local and national environmentalists, between those whose priority is protecting a desert close to home and those whose priority is fostering solar development across the country, is instructive. The local environmentalists tell us all we need to know about major environmentalist groups.

It's the president's present answer to high gas prices: End tax breaks for oil companies! He didn't always sing the same tune, though.

As a U.S. senator in 2005, the president voted for an energy bill that included more than $2 billion in tax breaks for oil companies. Fox News' Ed Henry called the president on this hypocrisy today by posing a question to poor Jay Carney, who had no explanation.
