17 years ago today most of us woke up optimistic and innocent. That night we went to bed confused, angry, and calling for blood. It was a day that changed the course of history in nearly every way...

Today our nation and the world at large are as divided as most living people can remember them ever being. If we're not racists, we're sexists, and if we're not this color or that nationality or the wrong religion, or the wrong political party; we're to be hated and/or feared for things we either haven't done or wouldn't dream of participating in. Our innocence has been replaced with cynicism and for some of us optimism for the future is hard to imagine.

I call on everyone who reads this TO imagine it though. Imagine the world BEING a better place than it is today. Imagine yourself BEING part of it. We can't go back to yesterday, but we CAN make a difference. How, you ask?

After we remember those we lost, and honor the Heroes their loss inspired, we need to BE THE CHANGE WE WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD.

Thanks for listening.

Thanks Benny. Sounds like I will be getting same plan as your mom Except I have Allstate vs Farmers for theft. I checked Travelers and Farmers and recently AAA and best rate for me is w Allstate

Thanks QuietOne. The notice doesn't have a location map, but says the work is near RS at mile post 37 and 39 wherever that is.

Thank You QuietOne, for ADVANCE notice about the upcoming full closure of Hwy 330! CalTrans rarely provides such a long-range heads-up.

I know my mom has CFP(California Fair Plan) for the fire portion of insurance for her cabin, then Farmers for theft. But it sounds like there's a difference if your on a dirt rd., vs not. I think Traveler's is still covering up here, I know people who do still have them. It's pretty confusing.

I talked with a AAA agent and they off policy through American Securities for $2278 vs my old Foremost policy of $850. I have found much cheaper plans through the use of the Fair Plan coupled with a standard insurance company such as Allstate.

FYI, according to Press Release from CalTrans, Hwy 330 will be fully closed from Sept. 9 through Sept. 23 for rock fall barrier construction. [Click Here]

EvaJ did your parents great a straight policy with AAA or did they also require a Fair plan policy?

We had them for ten years

Foremost is subsidiary of Farmers.

Is that popped that just brought the fish to Simba? Asking because again Simba is being aggressive and saying MINE!

Also, my Mom says Foremost is owned by AAA and the person that wrote their new policy was surprised Foremost was declining coverage up here.

I remember there was some previous discussion about insurance in Big Bear. My parents got a non-renewal notice for their place today from a company named "Foremost". They were able to get a policy with AAA. They said it's more expensive ($1061 versus $1995) but they were happy to find it.
