my letter to arnold

Well Arnold you have done it again. My family camps regularly at an average of 2 weekends per year. Summer is basically every weekend with the remainder of the year 1-2 weekends a year. Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years, Presidents Day, Children birthdays etc. We have three children and more often than not have an additional 1-2 fiends of the children along.Your cost increase in 2006 of annual passes doubling over night was a lot to swallow. We did however maintain two annual passes as we need an extra vehicle to accommodate extra kids who do not have the opportunity to camp with their own families.Now that the State has increased camping fees to such unreasonable rates for parks that are in need of repair, utility issues, bee infestation issues not dealt with, over flowing dump stations due to poor maintenance I as a California resident can tell you to stick your park system up your back side! I for one am done with the whole States ram rod up my backside. You buy my annual passes and camp spots to keep this poorly run State afloat. I will be returning to wilderness areas that don't have some State Employee in a stupid Smokey the Bear hat sitting on their hands!It is my wish that your entire State sees continued decline until the people wake up and tell Government to get the hell out of our wallets. Most of your Park Rangers think they are working some kind of work camp for criminals with attitudes that make the whole experience a jock!Good luck Arnold; you see I am just one family of five that have lots of families that camp together who all feel the same! So get a rock and start sucking something else's blood.Oh and by the way your job as acting Governor has stunk from day one!

Breaking News: Tsunami Advisory Issued for San Onofre

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Federal experts have now issued a tsunami advisory for possible dangerous currents in coastal areas of California and Oregon following a magnitude 8 earthquake in the Pacific Ocean near Samoa. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center said an advisory means that a tsunami capable of producing strong currents or waves dangerous to persons in or very near the water is imminent or expected.

The earthquake had a magnitude of up to 8.3 as it struck between Samoa and American Samoa around dawn Tuesday, sending terrified residents fleeing for higher ground.

It's expected to hit Orange County at 9:16 p.m. tonight. I've got the crane with the light hooked up to the truck. Meet at the usual spot for night surfing.

Supplemental information (5:05 p.m.):
Curt Kaplan of the
National Weather Service says "if I were on the coast, I would move inland."

Big Happenings

Since we lost Murphy on San-O Daze, it's been a bit slow. However, recent events have transpired that give reason to celebrate. The first is the unqualified success of Murphline, the site for surf related content. The second is a huge, and I mean HUGE (think earth shattering) upcoming announcement naming the newest member of San-O Daze. Believe you me, it will be boffo! It will put us over the top and make us a force to be reckoned with.

To mark the occasion, we will run a "Name the Gopher" contest. He's a regular at the Point.

Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon

The State announced today that San Onofre would host the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon World Championships next summer, August 14-15. Pictured below are the winner's from last weekends' 4th annual Helen Woodward Surf Dog Surf-a-thon held in Del Mar. The event raises money for homeless animals at the Helen Woodward Animal Center.

There were about 100 dogs competing in the contest. Heats with four dogs surfed it out in a battle to get the top spot in their heat which took them to the finals.

The final competition was fast and furious as the dogs rushed to get in as many waves as they could in a 20 minute time frame. Dogs were scored on the length of the ride, size of the wave, and other tricks on the board, such as turning around or riding backwards. Buddy, a Jack Russell terrier from Newport Beach rode one of the last waves of the heat.

Next up for the mutts is the Surf City Surf Dog Contest in Huntington Beach on October 11th.
