The pace of the burn took firefighters by surprise: The fires charred 20,000 acres in about 12 hours, which Cox called “a phenomenal rate of growth.” He said firefighters had “zero percent” containment and warned that, while winds had weakened slightly over the course of the day, “because of heat and low humidity, fire growth is still likely.” -- Kerr et al, Washington Post, Oct. 9, 2017

 ....but rushing in to the county to guide the Sisters is one of the state Capitol's leading political geniuses, Will "If you print my name I'll have to kill you" Skaarup, formerly the Democrats' go to registration ace. Skaarup, like the Sisters, has BIG plans for Merced, including a warehouse for overnighting big Humboldt Bud loads bound for LA. Wouldn't it fit in nicely with the Gateway Project at Mission and 99?

 Cotton Subsidies in the United States totaled $35.8 billion from 1995-2014. 2Cotton Subsidies in California totaled $3.2 billion during the same period.2..  Cotton Subsidies in Merced County, California totaled $175 million from 1995-2014.3.

Evidently, this was far from enough to satisfy American cotton growers, so they are trying to raid the coming crop-insurance based Farm Bill.
