sand bar is back, outer reef is uncovered, the dirt road will not be paved, life is good. The telephone poles acting as barricades could be removed allowing motor homes to be backed up to the water, and Tony's Market has agreed not to send his catering truck filled with munchies. Maybe, just maybe
camping will be allowed. Bldg. 1 thru 6 will have pocelean bowls for your comfort including germ free seat covers.

Before long there will be 400 surfboards in the water at the same time. It is anticipated 25 riders will occupy one wave. The Rangers are at San Onofre Surf Beach to prevent alcohol consumption and ticket parking violators. It is the responsibility of San Onofre club members to clean open latrines
1 thru 6 five times daily. Boogie boards and canvas inflatable surf mats are encouraged at Old Man's while beach is open. Thank you for your cooperation.

Bill Barnars, Hi Ho Silvers, Art Lavagnino, and a host of others. Now she's diminished to cherry-pit spitting contests, horse-shoes, bocci ball tournaments, anything divorcing itself from the sport itself. I wish I'd anticipated this when I spent hard earned money to join. It's too late now. There's no use crying over spilled milk.

Labor Day: How it Came About; What it Means
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
Founder of Labor Day
More than 100 years after the first Labor Day observance, there is still some doubt as to who first proposed the holiday for workers.
Some records show that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor, was first in suggesting a day to honor those "who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold."
But Peter McGuire's place in Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. What is clear is that the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal and appointed a committee to plan a demonstration and picnic.
