I Heart Bako

Several people have written letters to The Californian lately to voice their opinions about the development of the bluffs near Hart Park. From the looks of it no body likes the idea. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that it’s a bad idea.

I thought one woman’s letter in particular stood out. She grew up here and used to walk along the bluffs and go to Hart Park. She later moved to the Bay area and lived there until she retired. This is the unusual part, and then she says. “I couldn’t wait to get back to Bakersfield.”

See! Some people DO like living here!
