STEP-AHOLICS

You know who you are. You can’t deny it. It is obvious to everyone. You are step-aholics. Those who build steps when there is absolutely no reason to do so. Those who will make what could be accessible to everyone inaccessible to those of us who use wheelchairs. It may well be a disease. And you may well need treatment.

El Diablo Closure: What Does It Mean?

CCDC members have been asking what impact this closure has on our lawsuit.  Our lawsuit is moot.  What does that mean?  It means the case is over completely.
