Two Japanese businessmen, Mickey Mihara and Tatsunosuke Fukui, recently purchased the two trucks for $125,000 each from Seth and Meridith Doulton, owners of Golden State Promotions in Santa Barbara.

We in Orange County are quite fortunate in having the numerous beautiful parks. O'Neill and Featherly have always been a pleasure to visit, until recently. In the past couple of years, the rules and regulations and fees have increased dramatically. My parents live in a travel trailer and travel the United States. They came to Orange County for the holidays and used the regional parks. The camping fee is $5. My parents are senior citizens, so they pay $2.50. That includes both of them and their 32-foot recreational vehicle.
