February 5, 2012Updates to my web site include some facts out of my upcoming book on Monterey, our history of policy.
It is not coincidence that this preview fits into some of the legal entanglements of my own in the closing of my mother's trust. You can read about that on the home page, in my biography page. It's a devastating thing to have your own mother die, even at a 'ripe old age.'
My propane tank truck driver was from a family of 12 siblings. Was? Well it seems in closing the trust of his father, somehow the papers got lost and the named trustee with a lawyer got all the Real Estate, some 15 parcels both for development and agricultural land.
Without elaborating on how the siblings all fared, individually -- the all were their own earners and continue as a smaller family -- the one guy who gutted their daddy's fortune ended up ill, having to leave his own job, needing to sell off all the properties to pay the legal fees, his failing health, and soon his own home will go because he cannot find work.
New additions under "Monterey -- Unique Views" show some of the value of my research into our Monterey history. Both some personal discoveries about the laws of our land, and about the customs of our frontier history.
After all, Monterey is a frontier town where the east came across the Pacific Rim to hold US to our own shores.
That's kind of unique.
Oh, yeah! My book PAWNS is soon going to be available in paperback.
