Pleased to see no-camping vote
       Just learned that the council voted 8-1 to ban public land camping. It was in the works a long time, and I am glad to see it passed. After it passes the next reading and then the third, if needed, there will surely be a legal challenge, but it needed to be done. There are the rights of all of us to consider.
