None of the newspapers in San Mateo County seem to take an interest in this.
To me, it is of the utmost importance yet somehow I am suspect when Congress gets involved with this particular area......and how many people know of POST....Peninsula Open Space Trust.
It is far too hidden and not in the open when a broken traffic signal will make headlines.
What is going on really?
Update the readers of the past of the GGNRA which sounds professional and important for San Francisco. Are there other organizations like this dealing with preservation, park service and why not bother to write a more comprehensive story of what it all means.
In these economic times, I would love to know who the position and involvement of Nina Nowak.Is she from the Bay Area, and where does she live in the Peninsula.
This deserves a bit more space than this story from Bay City News Service.
Only ONE comment other than mine for something rather significant amount of money for Congress to "set aside" during these times.
