From The Chronicle-Telegram, Elyria:
Residents of the Crystal Springs Campground on Bagley Road near North Ridgeville have been told they have to get out by midnight tonight (April) 5 under terms of a letter dated Monday from Redwood Management, a Beachwood company that owns the campground property and plans to expand an adjacent luxury apartment complex onto the site.
The letter said any tenant who was still in the campground after today’s deadline would be considered to be trespassing.
Tenants originally believed they would have six months’ notice before having to move out.
Mayor David Gillock confirmed the pending expansion of Ridgecrest Luxury Apartments, a development on the east side of a pond that separates the apartments from the campground.
Redwood Management recently purchased the campground from Buckeye Bank, which had acquired it in a receivership case, according to the mayor.
A number of lots where mobile homes or trailers had been parked were already vacant.
Asked about the letter to tenants from Redwood Management, Gillock said. “Redwood bought it and they have the right to do with the property as they will. We’re not involved with that.”
From the Ravalli Republic, Hamilton:
The gates to one of the Bitterroot National Forest’s favorite campgrounds swung open Thursday (April 4) for the first time in a year.
Even better for campers hoping to get a jump on this year’s season, Lake Como’s Three Frogs Campground sites will be available for free through at the least the first of May.
“We’re excited about having it open early,” said Bitterroot National Forest recreation technician Erica Strayer. “It has been closed so long that we wanted people to be able to enjoy it a little earlier than normal after we finished getting it all cleaned up.”
The campground’s 20-sites were off-limits last year as loggers performed a thinning project designed to remove hazard trees and slow the spread of mountain pine beetle through the popular recreation site.
From KRQE-TV, Albuquerque:
A bomb blew up a porta potty at Conchas Lake State Park on Monday (April 1). Thursday, a bomb was found in the water at Blue Hole in Santa Rosa.
New Mexico State Police are looking into a connection.
From The Leaf-Chronicle, Clarksville:
Around 40 eclectic bands will play for three days during the Wild Wild Fest, planned for April 12 to 14 at the Red River Campgrounds in nearby Adams.
The music event is being organized by The Coup, a Clarksville nightclub and cafe.
The Coup owners are Stacy Gazenski and Zach Lerman.
Gazenski said there would be a Ghost Town stage as the main performance area and a smaller Dreamcatcher stage by the river. The event will have yoga, hula-hooping and fire-spinning, she added.
One of their partners, Radiant Yoga, will conduct a yoga session at 10 a.m., Saturday, April 13. Another partner, Blackhorse Brewery, will be the main beer seller.
The music? Lerman described as “all types of underground music. Basically every band and performer is going to be different from the last.”
Among the genres will be hardcore, hop hop, indie, dance music, punk and something called, simply, “noise. ”
