    How do you "rack" a forest?
    This just goes to show everyone the brilliant scholars known as democrats.
    Maybe the scholars like the above poster should go to their uneducated, minimum wage job and leave the comments to those who passed grammar school? If would be appreciated by the way if you went back to the urinals in the men's "🚻" and erased your phone number from the wall.....again, and please wipe up the dribble from the floor.

    I agree. My retired relatives were some of the first to lose their home on the front ridge when the fire came up the canyon to Paradise. They just had time to get out with the clothes on their backs and pets as embers blew on them and into their eyes. They drove through fire embers and trees on fire.They hit the traffic jams and sheltered with others in a large clear lot of a big box store. I had seen the fire on the news and called them, they were not thinking straight. I told them to head east to the ocean. When I again spoke to them they could not find any motel rooms. So I got them rooms in Jackson. In the next several months I helped them work through what they wanted to do and where to live. I wanted them to stay up here in the foothills, but they realized it was a chance to leave the policies and costs of California behind and start anew easier elsewhere. After several months they bought a motorhome and set off with pets in tow, to see a few states they might like to live. No one wanted to live in the cold so they settled in the South when they found a property and home with a price they could not pass up. Needless to say, their costs are about one third of mine here. They say the air is much cleaner there and are happy.

    To stay in Paradise would constantly be living and breathing the horror that happened there. Paradise was turned to purgatory by fire. Most of those who stayed did so to camp and live for free, receiving the free monetary assistance and FEMA housing. The majority of people who were living in the Camp Fire area that lost homes and jobs left and would never go back. They moved for new jobs to take care of themselves and their families because they are resilient and strong, and mostly have the integrity of working for self-sufficiency. They are the majority who went through the fire and should also be noted, and a view into their new lives should also be shown. Seeing how they are living in another state sure would be educational for us all here, don't you think?

      Correction: West to the ocean (not East) it's just every time I think about it I get distracted with the horror of people burning to death. Elderly should never be living in the forest, or areas where it is hard to evacuate in a timely manner.

        All that destruction, all that death. Complete loss.

        And Cali didn't learn a damn thing.

        There will be another, then another, then another......

          Young having sex with pigs? You're right on with that one. I have a friend who's mom lost her whole house there and he now has rights to that property. I think FEMA finally cleared that and my friend (who is 61) showed me one of these Tiny Homes brochures in order to build a small dwelling for himself on the property and all is legal. He is a retired contractor and can do this and also pass all the codes for hookups etc. so he can live there by himself and be perfectly happy with that. The trees will eventually grow as well as other vegetation and in the future, Paradise will be back to its natural state. And BTW, he gets retirement money so he isn't one of those folks who just like to "mooch" off of the system.

            Thank you, I too have seen those. I've also seen one where they used shipping containers and some he stacked them and made two stories. It was pretty neat. I was surprised how nice they were inside.
            If you've ever had a 5th wheel or a motor home you know your space is limited and the neat way and little tricks they have to use space.
            I can't believe someone thinking that the elderly shouldn't live in the country. M
            Sounds like that person should run for a special needs government job, maybe FEMA could use him or one of our Calif democrats could use a new yes man.

Democrats have run Calif into a stinkhole of a cesspool.

Well I'm headed to the forest, the state part to go rack the forest floor.
The reason I'm not headed to the "federal" forest is because if you look on the map where these devastating fires started did NOT START in the federal parts of our countru, they've started on California's property. They've started on private property where the homeowner did NOT let PG&E on the property. So our governor is belittling our president and yet the fires were not started on federal property.
Thank you Gov Newsom for side stepping YOUR problem like usual and blaming someone else. Just like his blaming the gas companies for California's high gas prices I guess all of those taxes you put on our fuel is because of the gas companies too? Let's not forget our special blend that cost 10 cents a gallon for our cleaner air in California, it sure has worked, we now have the worst air quality in the NATION between our fires and democrats running our state we're headed to a whole new LOW.
We need to find more people to blame for all of our troubles and I'm afraid we need more fingers on our hands to point and blame.

    I love racking pine needles when they are wet, lighting them, watching them smoke not burn, and the smoke drift towards downtown on a crowded saturday afternoon. The tourists love the smell.

This is going to be a hard thing to do but I'd like to get some volunteers together and we can start next week hanging fliers up in places like the Murphys Diggins Mobile Park for anyone over the age of 62 will be evicted.
Since our Hwy 4 is only a two lanes, I think these elderly gimps will tie up traffic with their cautious slow driving instead of our younger drivers who cause most of the accidents all across this Nation of ours.
The sooner we get them out, the better.
I wish the first commentator could be our president of this group and maybe our guy who wants to rack our forest could be his VP and right hand man.
Would someone like to second my proposal?
