You make is sound like the Ranch was a shanty town. The Grounds were cleaner and built to code just lacked the permits. If it was so terrible and dangerous to the public why did not the Building Inspector close down the Ranch the year when he inspected the property??? I was there when he came and a few others and he said we did a good job just needed to tweak a few things to get our permits. He was so impressed he wanted tickets to the events!!! We were singled out because of the "Criminal" that lived down the street terrorizing our neighbors and blaming the Ranch. After doing some investigating I had no idea that so so many convicted felons live in our area. Since Marianne you seem to be the self appointed Hall Monitor why don't you put your energy into finding out what our officials are doing to monitor these Convicted felons that live among us. I was told by some of my friends with children how bad it was and they were afraid but now after finding out just how bad it is I am afraid for them!
I am friends with one of the neighbours out there, and she is living with a loaded shotgun under her bed in the summer. Her neighbour across the street has a rifle when she walks outside. The young man in question came from one of the all night Raves and told the police just that. Read the police report.
I listened to the terror in my friend's voice and the horrible terror the neighbours experienced , I spoke with the neighbours at length, and they had hoped that mr willow would be kind enough to at least turn the music down at 10 pm and not go until 5 am with loud Raves filled with people . there are other incidents the neighbours told me about, quite a few, of young people coming onto their property.
Im sure Mr Willow can change things. no more raves, no more music after 10 pm, hire some ex cops as security guards, get up to code.
is that so difficult?
Its just a matter of being neighbourly and kind. it doesnt take that much effort to be mindful of your neighbours, does it?

Martha was having a picnic for her children and their friends. On the way home one of the children was abducted by a pedophile. This person was hanging out around the picnic. Now some of the hardworking neighbors want to blame Martha for attracting such scum even though he lived in the same area.
Some people see logic in beating dead horses.
Dweller seems like you like to talk but not listen.Your credible story sounds more incredible each time you tell it. Let it go and stay tuned for the new and improved willow ranch coming to a neighborhood near you.

It makes no difference if that kid was local or not. He came from your place and was obviously using... To try and make this out as if this place is sum Nirvana or 1960's "wanna be" hang out is ludicrous. Stop taking money from our youth and poisoning them and get a REAL job Bum slummo...I can assure you you are being watched by the correct authorities sir so have a nice day, room service will be calling soon :)

The crowds may very well be smaller but it is not just about the music that people come to the willow ranch. It has become a sanctuary for many. What makes it different? Acceptance.

Bim Willow is a living lie. That is not even his real name. He abandoned his children and mentally abuses his family through manipulation. How could you expect a person like that to have any sense of responsibility or seriousness when it comes to others lives only when it is convenient for his self image. Everyone feels like the unstable people that are attracted to these events are the threat. But the thruth is he envites them. Also the incompetent corrupt staff doesn' help. I feel like I could go on,,but real promblem is Bim and as long as he is around he will continue and so will his followers. The last couple of years the only reason nothing. Too serious is because his only daughter has been fighting to get rid of these people and their.drug infestation. Yes she is under constant attack and complete invalidation.. I just wanted the community to know that we tried but he is far beyond that. He may be my biological.grandfather but he is a danger to this community and his family.
