Capistrano, Tustin, Knott's Berry Farm, etc.

The federal government has decided that the Juañenos don't rate recognition as a tribe. I wonder if they would have fared better had the three factions united before approaching the Feds. In any case, I'm sure appeals are already being prepared.
Meanwhile, back at Mission San Juan Capistrano, the Church wants more time to study whether they actually put the new rectory garden on top of an old cemetery. It sounds to me like a mystery that could be solved over a weekend with a jackhammer and a shovel. But I suppose that's why I'm not an archaeologist.

The City of Tustin's preservation efforts and the 1922 bungalow at 245 South A St. will be featured in the next issue of Cottages & Bungalows magazine. Check your local Barnes & Noble or Lowe's to find a copy.

Ken Stack has started a blog called Outside The Berm. It seems to focus on old images and collectable from local theme parks -- especially Knott's Berry Farm and Disneyland. It will be interesting to see how the blog develops. He certainly has some great photos to share.

It's good to see you've given Ken Stack's blog some ink (or pixels in this case). I look forward to every new posting from both of you guys.

I wondered about graves at the San Juan Cap mission. Their handout mentions the number of people buried there, and there's no way they'd all fit in the little area they have designated as a cemetery.
