Lowes has just announced a number of closures, about 4 - 5 in California.

K-Mart is quite bad off, financially worse than Sears. The Big Bear store appears quite busy and well-stocked but they are actually selling off existing inventory from other store closures. Nothing being added or reordered.

Serious questions arising about warranty support for Kenmore/Die Hard items already sold or to be sold.

Thanks Del. I did hear on the news that they were going to support all Sears warranty commitments regardless of how things go for the company. I just had sears up to fix my snowblower... No wonder its not snowing

Yes, but the K
-Mart portion may get sacrificed to save Sears.

If Sears/Kmart closes, rest assured another discount super store will end in its place, most likely a Walmart. Big Bear Kmart is one of the best performers in company. The Kenmore brand is likely going to be sold off along craftman and other highlights of Sears Brand.
Honestly, the last time I purchased something over $100 from either Sears or Kmart was 10 years ago.

But Lowes isn’t surprising, as hardware store they lack the edge of providing to professionals the way Home Depot or other lines can. Go to Home Depot in morning and see how many contractors are there, then head over Lowes. Also has my wife points out, Lowes has horrible customer service.
Sears had the infrastructure back in the early days of the internet and the name it could have been the Amazon of today. But they made bad business decisions.

Our basic BBV problem is lack of a full time population. Big stores want a large daily market. Our sole advantage is that the store would have no competition. Target???
I see that Staters is physically expanding.

Oh really? Did they gobble up a couple units adjoining them to the north? I rarely go in there so I dunno.... Just remember that it took forever to check out.

Yes, the north side is being expanded to allow bulk items.

OUR luck up here they would take that bldg and make it into a Dollar General, Big Lots, or some other subprime store.

Summer will be here soon!

The second wave of painted lady butterflies has hatched and a fresh litter of bunnies have emerged. It always amazes me how animals are great at sharing the earth yet the large brained ones can't even share the road.

A.R.....even though Grout Creek and a few other lake feeders are still flowing, volume is such that we`re looking at a few more inches max...
The good news is that you don`t have to extend the gangway/dock out nearly as far to get to proper depth this year!

Hey Lake People. As it is so nice to see blue at the east end once again, what are the chances we will get another couple of feet in the next month or so. Would so love to put new owners dock out for the first time in 6 years???????

NSA, from another former scouter, Kudos on so many years of service and you are still going strong. Just goes to show that it just a couple of morons followed by and idiot or two to really fowl it up for the good ones and for the kids. An experience I would never want to forgo.

Was a scout leader for my two boys (both earned eagle rank) and the rest of the troop of about 70 boys. Was the cooking merit badge counselor, led 12 summer camps (one to Crater Lake, OR another to Philmont Scout Ranch NM), had a group of 11 Tiger Cubs (1st graders) of which 7 earned eagle. Also won 7 adult Golden Spoon camp cooking awards! Our troop (Fullerton 1201) was formed 1919.

The Boy Scout hullabaloo is a lawyer trying to make a name for themselves. So the BOA had a list of suspected child predators? So does AYSO and any other organization that puts adults in contact with children (except maybe the Catholic Church). They didn't let them have anything to do with kids. Should they have published the names without a trial? NO.
