The Grizzly is reporting that the local KMart is up for auction in January. Whatever the winner opts to do, is up to them. It could remain a KMart, or not.

Down to the wire!
Sears Holdings Corp. is preparing to potentially wind down the iconic retailer after Chairman Eddie Lampert’s bid to buy several hundred stores out of bankruptcy fell short of bankers’ qualifications. While Lampert’s ESL Investments has failed to convince the bankers of the viability of its bid, it could still make last-minute improvements before a status hearing on Tuesday. Lampert also has outlined a back-up plan in which ESL would pursue the purchase of some of Sears’s parts, including real estate and intellectual property, such as its brand.

Looks like Kmart will now Liquidate....
There were 3 places that I shopped while I lived in Big Bear.... Butchers Block, Stater Bros & Kmart.
I remember when I first moved there in 1999..... Kmart had a nice selection of plants / yard decor. They had 1/2 oak barrels for 1/2 the cost of anybody and their plants were really inexpensive.
I really liked the BB Kmart !!
I hope somehow the doors will stay open with another "discount" retailer.... And hopefully they will include a very good selection of food.
In Huntington Beach, I remember when they built the Kmart.... and it was my go to store for all my childhood (that and whitefront and fedco). That Kmart was demolished and a Home Depot is now there.
R-I-P Kmart

is the sky the limit ?

Sears Holdings will ask a bankruptcy judge today if it can proceed with liquidation after it could not reach an agreement on chairman Edward Lampert's $4.4 billion takeover bid, people familiar with the matter said, potentially spelling the end for the 126-year-old U.S. department store chain.

Once again, I hope the K-Mart could become a Target.

bluemeadow, the Blackhawk is not here yet. The shoot is at the top of the mountain, but I believe it will be landing in our parking lot at Bear Mtn. I think he arrives tomorrow or Wednesday, shooting through the end of the week.

There are also OHV Volunteers for the USFS. These fine people patrol our forest service roads often finding an destroying illegal fire pits, putting out deserted campfires, educating campers about illegal campfires and seeing that they are put out.

Thanks Forest, good to know.

There is a large volunteer presence, Big Bear Valley Citizens on Patrol. They are recruiting now. They can be hampered sometimes by their controllers but for the most part these guys/gals rule.

Do we know what film shoot at Bear Mountain, I can hear the helicopter, but did not see it though.

Aug 19 : 12:15pm
I personally don't see the same police presence as I did even a few years ago. Is there a volunteer service in place? I know volunteers can't do much, but eye's and ears are invaluable. Without the bodies needed to respond, guess it wouldn't work.

(Paranoid-conspiracy-theory Sidenote:
Like our Sheriff dept. if we had very low crime rate for one year, why would they increase their budget? Possibly, a quota of instances must be met. It's a thin line game the big cheese's are playing w/our safety.)
Soap box 📦 done!

I didn't know campfires were allowed at all out here. On the Eastern side of the country, they are allowed. People even burn debris in large piles in their backyards in Tennessee. Here, it lacks the humidity where a fire can easily get out of hand.

If it is due to budget cuts for their man hours, one would think a 2nd shift or overtime for rangers is much more cost effective than the resources it takes to fight a wildfire.

Aug 19 : 09:12am
Went Yellow Post Camping Saturday... Ranger drove around and stopped at each spot explaining as of Tuesday no more camp fires.... So, kind of a boring evening sitting around with no fire... However every other visible spot had a raging camp fire... No Ranger to be seen from dusk til dawn... Would it not make more sense to be patrolling in the evening...

FYI, there's a film shoot going on at Bear Mountain this week that will include a real Blackhawk helicopter. You may see it buzzing around the Valley & Moonridge.

Packrats probably..

The rabbits 🐇 around here don't know what to make of carrots, go figure, the muskrats (?) eat them all up.

That's terrible, Hit n run non injury Lake Arrowhead.

Hey that giant tame gopher snake resident I have will tremble it's tail tip if startled. I laugh, wanna-be!
