This is pure propaganda from the City. By not cracking down on the illegal camping in front of retail establishments leading up to "Black Friday" the City demonstrated that enforcement of the camping ordinance is selective. The City just destroyed its own argument against the Occupiers.
Sacramento City Code Chapter 12.52.030
It is unlawful and a public nuisance for any person to camp, occupy camp facilities, or use camp paraphernalia in the following areas:
A. Any public property; or
B. Any private property.
1. It is not intended by this section to prohibit overnight camping on private residential property by friends or family of the property owner, so long as the owner consents and the overnight camping is limited to not more than one consecutive night.
2. Nothing in this chapter is intended to prohibit or make unlawful, activities of an owner of private property or other lawful user of private property that are normally associated with and incidental to the lawful and authorized use of private property for residential or other purposes; and provided further, nothing is intended to prohibit or make unlawful, activities of a property owner or other lawful user if such activities are expressly authorized by the city’s comprehensive zoning ordinance or other laws, ordinances and regulations.
3. The city manager may, as provided in Section 12.52.050 of this chapter, issue a temporary permit to allow camping on public or private property in connection with a special event.
A violation of this section is a misdemeanor. In addition to the remedies set forth in Penal Code Section 370, the city attorney may institute civil actions to abate a public nuisance under this chapter. (Prior code § 44.03.007)
One wonders how authentic a feast this will be…
As was customary, Sutter provided food and sometimes shelter for his farm laborers. Efficiency was needed to feed a work force of hundreds, so he fed them in long communal troughs, a practice that reminded Sutter’s overseer, Heinrick Lienhard, of feeding pigs. According to a Nisenan account the Indians ate a mixture of boiled beef and wheat in a device “like a hog’s feeding trough.” This arrangement made eating a competitive affair. Sometimes an Indian would reach over one of his fellows that the trough to get a bone that “dripped and burned” the others’ backs.
The specimen is a California Condor, not a vulture. Among many Native Californians, the Condor is considered an important spiritual being, similar to the Bear and Salmon. And I find it refreshing that a museum is finally attempting to introduce the Condor, and it's importance to traditional Californians, to the general population of contemporary Californians.
