Yeah, I've heard them announcing that on KTLA for awhile, bummer for those who have direct, I love KTLA! Someone, somewhere mentioned Charter was also going to stop carry Channel 6, anybody heard anything on that?

Heard that this morning also. They are advising those with Direct to change providers or get an antenna and pick KTLA off the air

I knew about it and even called Directv the other day. They really don't care what their customers think.

I was bummed when I turn on the TV this morning and my news wasn't on. I'm pissed off and thinking about going to another provider.

usualy they settle these at the last minute We don't get KTLA down here in our local pack but I wish we could. I'm still happier with direct then others I see.
Is Ch 5 available on the internet?

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

I miss my KTLA. But it's all business which means its all about money. We can't get cable and I know TOO many folks unhappy with Dish so I guess we're stuck ....or do what we do more often these days and pull it off the net! :-)

It all turned out well. Only that one beautiful house lost. Fires generate a sense of community like nothing else. Benny will get that back up in good time. He and Craig have other things to do besides trying to keep all of us happy.

BG that camera's been around for years. I'm working on it, but it may need to go out for service and/or be replaced... I'll keep you posted!

Glad to see the fire almost over. But the site has turned into a ghost town lately. It looks like the San G cam may be dying. But it certainly served it's time. over the last few weeks. Still one of my favorite views in Big Bear

Everyone seemed to respect the USFS but CDF was almost the enemy. Most of the local men back then were volunteer fire fighters. My grandfather and Dad were. They both also worked for the FS. My dad spent the war at CALSHIP as a firefighter then was one of the first "professional" fire fighters in Big Bear. He was forced to retire on the job. There was little money for injured firemen back then. The thing that he had to fight for was his medical coverage which he needed badly.

That was every morning. A few turned it into careers. Another friend joined the BBLFD as a paid call fireman as a second job. This was tough because you were expected to be able to leave your "real" job when needed. He turned that into a carreer. I think his firs forest fire was the bear fire and was on the artic circle when the fire jumped the highway over them and they had to scramble under their truck. That was a tough fire. We were up at Butlar when the fire was in Bear creek. in the afternoon. It crested the peak just a couple hours later. It was the first major fire I saw happen. It was also unusual because it started in November I think?. I saw a picture I took the other day dated 69.
There always seemed to be no love lost between local firemen and CDF. I never understood that but this will probably make it worse.

Hi RRH

Several of my classmates went to work for the FS out of high school. They were there to be fire fighters but were also given other duties. I don't think they made much money and the training was brutal. Running up Bertha peak carrying a length of rolled hose , and I think an axe.

It has taken a very long time for the Forest Service to realize they have real firefighters working for them

I loved the FS I started in 1968 as a dalton hotshot
