it’s June in Eugene, Oregon, but you wouldn’t know it by the sky, the dribbling rain, the thunder and lightning storms in the middle of the night, hot but no SUNSHINE. NO SUNSHINE, until the end of the day – – when it’s too late!??
how the hell do you raise any agricultural FOOD in this rotten weather? The answer is; you don’t. You need a greenhouse and grow lights in Eugene, Oregon, and Lane County, to grow any food here anymore. This used to be a wonderful place to garden, grow your own fruit, grow your own vegetable garden. They’re even used to be lots of orchards around, you’d go there, grab a bucket, and go pick your own fruit, and then pay for it..
I guess you’re used to this kind of “senior complaining and bitching” that the world, and even your local world, has gotten a lot worse. Unfortunately, that is TRUE here. This County and this town had gone to the fucking dogs. I promise! If I had to bet you a lot of money about it, I would win. Right now, downtown they are tearing out lots of businesses fronts,of small business owners, who have no place to go now, and even biting into the side of the park, screwing it up.
We drove down the whole lane, which is about a 4 Lane Hwy., always busy and stuffed, a major artery for cars, and now it’s going to have the huge massive piece of shit called EMX bus line; single-handedly dictated by our Mayor Kitty cat, which they refused to let us vote on, (dictatorship of the deep South, live here in Eugene) and, I am not sure that that huge monster bus, and the lanes of cars beside it, are actually going to work in reality.
“Caroline, how is this going to work?” I said to her as we tried to drive down the highway, They were wrecking; “that huge monster bus is going to dominate all the lines of cars, there won’t be enough room. You suppose they can put it back the way it used to be, if it doesn’t fit?” She looked at me drearily. She shook her head, and kept her hands tight on the steering wheel.
“these lanes already get huge amounts of cars, deadlocked in traffic, during all the rush hours. Is everybody going to get out of their cars, and take the stupid EMX bus line, Instead?is that what’s going to happen? Otherwise, you are going to have more deadlocked, traffic blocked, unmoving rush-hour lines of cars here that don’t MOVE IN REALITY ANYMORE! They’re taking all the cars off the highway!”
“one thing good about this,” said Carolyn, trying to navigate the tight traffic, and get us off of the lane onto River Road;” everybody will be so pissed off, who takes this route, they will start refusing to go anywhere downtown to Eugene, and all of business will go outside Eugene to all the malls. Well, I guess it already is.” Caroline was in favor of malls. They were safer to walk in, you didn’t get hit up for change or attacked by meth addicts like downtown. Nor did your car get hijacked, or you get robbed at an ATM machine, like you did in Eugene proper..
“I already found out, a lot of these small businesses on this busy lane can’t afford to go anywhere else, they’re going to go out of business.” I ventured, as I had found that out. “Do you suppose they have a good multiple lawsuit against the city and the county for putting them out of business?” We were finally getting off of this very busy lane onto River Road, which was a relief.
Caroline gave me that nasty little small smile, which means she’s thinking up to no good, which is really not bad. “You bet,” she answered, “that is a wonderful civil suit, where you can milk the county and city for millions of bucks for putting you out of business!” She paused; “get a good attorney from California.”I answered, “I hope they have the moxie and the anger to get out there and do that.”“or,” she continued, “they could just wait a year or so, and then bomb the whole line, out of existence some very overcast night, and let the city and County handle that in their tourism guide website. THAT sounds better to me, as revenge is even better than money.””yes, I love revenge myself,” I replied, ” but that is not going to help the businesses that are all getting made extinct by this major, illlegal criminal masterpiece. “
later that evening, I telephoned my sister in California, and told her how bad the mess was on those highways. She just chuckled.” Boy, Eugene sure hasn’t changed, hasn’t it?” She said. “They used to do the same shit years ago, when I lived there. Still screwing and fucking up the entire local government, bunch of crooks running the town still! Nothing sure changes in Oregon, does it?” “I guess not,” I replied, “except that it’s gotten 1 million times worse. If that were possible.” “hard to believe that the people who run that town could get any worse,” she chuckled in return.
but for the weather, there was plenty of change practically overnight. Suddenly we had 80 and 90° heat, there was a big heat wave, and all rains stopped.. The summer swept in, like a rampaging bull at a rural rodeo in Lane County, plenty of heat and plenty of sun. The overcast days were over as fast as the thunder and lightning storms we had gotten at night.
If there were any way to change the local hard rule in Eugene and this county, I didn’t know what it was. It was the same crooked tiresome criminal local government, as when my mom and dad were alive and we were kids. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised; people don’t change and little dictator rural towns don’t change either, unless something harder and more powerful forces them out.
Even with all the Californians coming here, we still had plenty of bribery , ripe in the mayor’s office, it was just that this time it wasn’t the grass seed burning farmers bribing them, it was the new housing developers doing it. So maybe our local leaders and rulers had come up in the world.BIG TIME BRIBERY here was hoisting them up in the world.
And now we had major demolition and destruction of main arteries of traffic downtown, which would probably finish off any newcomers deciding to move here.they would take one look at the huge bumper-to-bumper gridlock traffic, the accidents between the EMX bus jammed into small traffic lanes versus the harried car drivers, and decide that this town was already too screwed up to move to, despite all the wonderful publicity of the local Chamber of Commerce.
Come to think of it, how are all the businesses going to keep going, with that decidedly messed up transportation snafu? They already had too many traffic accidents on the freeways, because they were planned and built so badly. Maybe Mayor Kitty was doing us a favor, completely blocking all freeway and road systems, gridlocked and keeping anymore newcomers from outside from moving here!
Could that be her plan all along? She too no longer wanted tons of Californians and people from back East, all moving here en masse and turning us literally into the most horrible city in California? So she was deliberately screwing up all the freeway systems, and all the major traffic lanes, creating havoc during rush hours? Could that be her subtle little plan all along? “OREGON FOR OREGONIANS!” The new litany from Mayor Meow?
