It has been covered by media both here in Porterville and from Fresno, about 75 miles away. In many ways we have been in the fight since the City Council became the ONLY 1 in the State to pass a "Resolution" in support of Prop H8.

I knew I'd see a comment from you!

I have a history in Porterville. My parents owned a cabin above Springville, up on the Balch Park Road, and I spent many a weekend or longer, in that area. I got to know Porterville quite well, but it's been a LONG time since I have been up there.

I hope those hillbillies are not affecting you guys!

I must have missed it.

The locals could have gotten help from some of the bigger communities to make a REAL ruckus at the time.
