Failing Economy Posted On: 1/19/2011 11:27:10 AM
I know that the economy is a mess nationwide but this city was struggling long before the economic downturn. When I arrived ten years ago, the downtown district was wonderful - busy, beautiful, bustling - a destination. Downtown, especially K Street, is nearly vacant except for the homeless. State workers once filled the streets, shops and eateries. With the state budget cuts and furloughs, most of those places went out of business. It is sad, really, to watch the gradual creation of another California ghost town.
