Those photos are not new; I've been looking at the place for a year. Nothing has really changed; it just slowly decays....I see more and more blobs to cover graffiti, boards to cover over broken-out doors and windows, and just general decay. At this point I would love to see them demolish the buildings and build a new Scientology monolith, but that's not going to happen. I think they'll be lucky to sell the mess to some developer. What I'm truly afraid of is that they will demolish the buildings and then abandon the property....I've noticed more and more demolitions of that type in the La Mesa/College area; the Red Oak Steakhouse building in the Crossroads Mall ended up a fenced yard of pebbly rubble, while some houses on Montezuma have just been steps leading to a fenced-off lot for years. The Great Recession has just been brutal to La Mesa.
So the buildings are in terrible disrepair. The OT committee looked thru some projections of mission-style buildings, and copy pasted them into some kind of "campus" where none matched and it was clear someone just loaded some clipart, kinda like Homer's website.
Now, I reckon that's a moot point, because they can't afford the property taxes etc. (incidentally, San Diego anons went thru the surrounding neighborhood 2 years in a row, handing out information and being forced to fill our pockets with chocolate.
That is a very chocolate neighborhood. The people were very grateful that we took the time to inform them. A cop was called, and he said we had to leave cuz we were "scaring the neighborhood." On Halloween.
I said 'DOES THIS LOOK LIKE THEY WERE SCARED TO YOU?" and dug out a handful of candy the residents had forced me to take. I couldn't show him the hugs, but we got a bunch of those as well.
Aweshum posts Barb! ( ) Give yer rat a big hug from us northerners too!
Yup, Cult of LRon, eckshpanding like crazy! Derp!
'Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.'

BTW, was the chimneysweep living in the trailer a short man, wearing glasses, dark hair, Caucasian? Or is the guy I saw a new caretaker?
Same price paid for it in 2008.
