    Tuesday Feb 2 | The Union Democrat

    A governing body in a small town that covers less than four square miles in rural Northern California wouldn't normally expect to gain the attention of a multi-billion-dollar global corporation based over 2,800 miles away in Buffalo, New York. However, that's what the Sonora City Council did Monday night by scheduling a discussion about sending a letter to National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis opposing the announced changes to names of landmark buildings and facilities in Yosemite National Park.

    The National Park Service has announced - amidst considerable public outcry - that as of March 1, the names of several iconic buildings and historic landmarks inside Yosemite National Park will be changed: the Ahwahnee Hotel - a name it has had since 1927 - will be known as "The Majestic Yosemite Hotel"; "Curry Village" will henceforth be "Half Dome Village"; the "Wawona Hotel" will become "Big Trees Lodge"; "Badger Pass Ski Area" - California's first ski resort - will be renamed the "Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area"; and "Yosemite Lodge at the Falls" will become the "Yosemite Valley Lodge." And why, you may ask? As NPS acknowledges, the changes are a response to a lawsuit filed by Delaware North Corp .
