Planet Ord is an amazing project. Don’t get turned away by the bit of talk of electromagnetic levels. (Seriously, there’s no real ghost talk.) Just enjoy the video of the old Fort Ord buildings. These are exactly what inspired my idea of the Southlands.

Great shot.  There’s something about all those lonesome couches around Fort Ord.

"Costco’s average pay, for example, is $17 an hour, 42 percent higher than its fiercest rival, Sam’s Club. And Costco’s health plan makes those at many other retailers look Scroogish. One analyst, Bill Dreher of Deutsche Bank, complained last year that at Costco “it’s better to be an employee or a customer than a shareholder.” Mr. Sinegal begs to differ. He rejects Wall Street’s assumption that to succeed in discount retailing, companies must pay poorly and skimp on benefits, or must ratchet up prices to meet Wall Street’s profit demands. Good wages and benefits are why Costco has extremely low rates of turnover and theft by employees, he said. And Costco’s customers, who are more affluent than other warehouse store shoppers, stay loyal because they like that low prices do not come at the workers’ expense. “This is not altruistic,” he said. “This is good business.”"

Light and Darkness in the Salinas Valley.

This is part of what’s wonderful about living here, the mountains that surround our valley, the openness of the agricultural land, the fact that it’s such a short drive to the ocean. Instead of dwelling on the crime and rampant gang activity for which our city is known, I need to be more appreciative of this. It’s stunning when seen through the lens of Mr. Wriston.

My family lived in Fort Ord when I was around 5.  It’s weird seeing photos of it abandoned because all my memories are from when I was little and people still lived there.


If you have any pictures of Fort Ord from when you were little or any stories you’d like to share, check out this blog. She’s collecting memories as well as documenting its current state.
