On August 27, 20i8 I wrote an article titled “Marshall Can’t”. In the article I listed items that Marshall continually failed to accomplish. Today I add another item to the list of things that Marshall just can’t seem to do – HIRE A CITY MANAGER.

Of course, this problem is entirely the responsibility of the current City Commission. The City Commission’s work on this task has been done in the dark and to my knowledge the City Commission has not provided periodic updates to the public on their progress. I think I know why. There has been very little progress.

A Drive Along California Highway 1 – Gallery 2

State Route 1 (SR 1) is a major north–south state highway that runs along most of the Pacific coastline of the U.S. state of California. At a total of just over 659 miles (1,061 km), it is the longest state route in California.

The highway is designated as an All-American Road. In addition to providing a scenic route to numerous attractions along the coast, the route also serves as a major thoroughfare in the Greater Los Angeles Area, the San Francisco Bay Area, and several other coastal urban areas.

SR 1 was built piecemeal in various stages, with the first section opening in the Big Sur region in the 1930s. However, portions of the route had several names and numbers over the years as more segments opened. It was not until the 1964 state highway renumbering that the entire route was officially designated as SR 1. Although SR 1 is a popular route for its scenic beauty, frequent landslides and erosion along the coast have caused several segments to be either closed for lengthy periods for repairs, or re-routed inland.
