Fighting The War of _812 With Abandon(ment)

Salute to

Ravaged Red, Mellow Yellow, and Guts[y] Green

Following up on last week's demolition derby in the Barefoot Dirty Girl's Supreme Sovereign Annexation Island of Southwestern Manteca (an independent outpost territory of French Guinea), I sent the following letter to Manteca's city hall:

July 26, 2010

City of Manteca
Attn: Mark Houghton, Public Works
1001 W Center Street
Manteca, CA 95336

Subject: Abandonment of Street Address - 812 Fishback Street, APN 222-11-003

Dear Mr. Houghton,

The mobile home bearing the address 812 Fishback Street has been demolished. The work commenced on Tuesday, July 20, 2010, and was completed over this last weekend.

Picture #1 – The mobile home as it appeared before demolition.
Picture #2 – Demolition in progress. Unpermitted shed still standing.
Picture #3 – The mobile home and shed demolished.

The owners may be preparing to construct a nonresidential accessory building to house their medical marijuana plants, shown growing under the solar panels in Pictures #2 and #3.

Please verify the demolition of 812 Fishback Street and record the abandonment of that address. Please notify the necessary agencies, as indicated on the attached letter, dated January 7, 1987, wherein Engineering first assigned the address to the mobile home. (For the sake of completeness, also attached is the letter of December 30, 1986, regarding the main dwelling.)

Finally, as a public records request, and as support for my lawsuit # 39-2009-00212085-CU-OR-STK in Superior Court, please provide me a copy of the official address abandonment, mailing it to P.O. Box 1761, Lathrop, CA 95330.

Sincerely yours,

Assessors Parcel Map for APN 222-11-003

Letters of January 7, 1987 and December 30, 1986

As part of the 1986 annexation procedure - and without doing any research regarding valid land use permits for the "inherited" temporary structure - it appears that in 1987 Mr. Hulsey (ret.) issued the mobile home a street address with reliance on these facts:
  • Mrs. Mego's word of the mobile home's existence, and
  • her (mistaken) assumption of its legality by reason of its existence, and
  • his (mistaken) assumption that the County of San Joaquin Planning Dept knew what it was doing in tracking mobile home permits.
What he clearly missed was a lawful abatement of the mobile home on or after April 1982 under the terms of Mr. Grubb's lapsed annual permit (last renewal in 1981).

The Grubb's carelessness - the County's carelessness - the Mego's carelessness - Mr. Hulsey's carelesness - all leading up to Mellow Yellow Lynda's carelessness, greed, and deliberate deceit - compounded into a horrific detriment to innocent neighbors during Allen's & Brassey's twenty-three-year reign of noisome terror.

Adding insult to injury is the deliberate carelessness (read: ass-covering) displayed by current employees and elected officials of the City of Manteca, who stridently argued with me and steadfastly refused to remediate the sins of the past in the present.

The fact that this almost prehistoric structure - unholy temple of the BDG's rapacious* avarice** - has finally turned to dust is cause for quiet celebration.
