The newspaper article said in part, "Torrey Jakubcin was celebrating his 14th birthday at the Medford library on Friday. But the faithful library patron said he didn't feel much like celebrating. "This is horrible," he said. "I'm not sure what I'll do now. I just finished a term paper on California condors. I wouldn't have been able to do it without the library.""
It's more than just the libraries. No federal funds means they have announced they will no longer prosecute meth crimes. The jail beds have been drastically reduced and will only be for the worst offenders.
Last night, my brother Joe told me they had put their house on the market. They plan to move to Texas. This saddens me so much, in so many ways.
