    Thank you for that information.

    Similar places around New England normally open around 7; the early Dunkin Donuts by the highway says it opens at 5:30 but you don't want to count on it until about 5:45. We frequently leave very early for hiking, and most of the time we get coffee an hour or two down the road because there just isn't anything open. So knowing that people are up and around at that hour alters my perspective on the situation.

    The Local (Malibu media publication, cited on this thread previously) reported yesterday that a 'road rage incident at Malibu Creek State Park' shut down Malibu Canyon for about 30 minutes yesterday. LASD said the incident had be 'resolved.'

    Not sure of any other details.

    “It appears as though that’s a new location for body dumps. It happens quite a bit in the Angeles National Forest, but for some reason it appears as though (this gang) has changed locations as far a dumping ground,” Shonka said. “We don’t know if (their deaths) are related.”

    Shonka rejected the notion that the dumping of the two bodies might be connected to the killing of Tristan Beaudette while he slept with his two young daughters in a tent at Malibu Creek State Park in June.

    “Absolutely not,” the detective said.

    Malibu Canyon bodies are gang-related, sheriff says

    A column this week from the Chico (CA) Enterprise-Record:

    Recent shooting puts spotlight on safety in state parks

    Stopping short of actually admitting it has a safety problem, the Parks Department now says a budget increase it just received will allow expansion of its force to more than 600 peace officer rangers by the end of the fiscal year next summer.

    There's also some interesting discussion of the role of volunteer camp hosts and their limitations.

    Nice to see the Reporter is on this. That publication does very good investigative journalism.

    However, the article doesn't go into the current state of affairs surrounding the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department. Granted, this is a very large LE agency with a mind-boggling sprawl of jurisdiction, but even so, recent events have only added to the pileup of scandals that have put the current sheriff, Jim McDonnell, in danger of losing the upcoming election.

    McDonnell failed to win outright re-election in the spring election, necessitating a run-off with the second-placed candidate, who's Latino and running as a reform candidate. At this point in time, it's easy to see how the current sheriff would be trying to keep a tight lid on any further scandals or failures.

    Here's just a few of the most recent LA Sheriffs in Trouble stories:

    Veteran LA Deputy Sheriff pleads guilty to federal drug conspiracy charge

    Read how an LA sheriff's deputy was caught using taco sauce as fake blood in an assault case

    This LA sheriff's deputy was a pariah in federal court. But his secrets were safe with the state.

    LA county sheriff announces inquiry into secret societies of deputies and their matching tattoos

    This is all just within the last month and typical of this agency.

    This week, the LA deputies union endorsed the challenger candidate rather than the incumbent sheriff McDonnell.

    Obviously this is a serious case of LE in disarray and it's hard to believe that under McDonnell's regime, there's not going to be a push for Good Publicity Only until November.

    At the Malibu/Lost Hills station, violent crime is up significantly over last year and in the first six months of 2018, there were four homicides v zero homicides in 2017. But even so, my visits to the LASD station and to Malibu Creek State Park made it clear that the various LE agencies aren't communicating especially well and you wonder how many incidents haven't made it into the database.

    I'm just picking up on this statement from the article linked above about Mitrice Richardson now.
