CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY.... "Father slid to a stop at the end of the 

shortcut road and the intersection of State Route 257...."

Father quick-looked left and right then spun gravel as he turned to the left

onto State Route 257 heading north. 

Today there is a small building immediately to the right and left of the lane

where children wait for the school bus. Not far and also to the right is a Russian

Baptist Church, a building, maybe vacant now, that was once a veterinarian's

office, and to the right at about a 1/4 mile distance and down the lane of about

California will decide on November 8 to pass or not to pass Proposition 64 for 

recreational use.


Northern California's Emerald Triangle's farmers who produce marijuana

fear that the passage of Proposition 64 will run them out of business with 

taxes, regulations and big farms will surely take over.

Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.
