Asking a personal favor for my community – all I need is a click

Personal note: I need a little help for my community. Since the State of California is morally and fiscally bankrupt, they have pulled the plug on the treasure of our town, the Bidwell Mansion, a true relic of the California Gold Rush and Western Expansion. A local citizen established group project to help save the Mansion from the state has been setup, and the local newspaper, The Chico Enterprise Record, will donate $1000 towards that fund if they get 3100 “likes” on their Facebook page.

They write:

Thanks, everyone. We are very close to our goal of 3,100 Facebook fans. If we reach it by March 31, we’ll double our $500 donation to the Save Bidwell Mansion fund and make it $1,000. Click “like” on this page up top and please tell your friends.

Since the online readership of WUWT far exceeds my local newspaper, this should be an easy task. If you have a Facebook account, please go here and “like” my local newspaper:

Here’s the status now:

We need 486 “likes”. This should be a cakewalk for the WUWT community.

Thanks for your consideration, Anthony

P.S. On the right sidebar you can also “like” WUWT’s Facebook page, but that’s a secondary consideration.

Done! 🙂





Gladly done! My wife and both her sisters are Chico State grads, and my oldest son calls Chico ‘The Best Place on Earth’. California’s version of a New England college town.
You can also selflessly help the greater Chico economy by enjoying some Sierra Nevada brews. (Hey, when beer is involved it’s easy to rationalize anything!)

2674 now, it should reach 10,000 by tonight.


Done !

Done. So the world’s 4th (or so) largest economy, California, has (borrowed) money to burn on “climate change” idiocy but nothing for its heritage. Disturbing.

done 2778


Done! 2777

What if you have some money burning a hole in your pocket ?
You might want to cut to the chase and post the address for donations.
You have more power than you realize.

Thanks for caring about this beautiful home.

2795 here. Beautiful house!

Just make it a sticky until they get there! 🙂 Up to 2778.

Joseph Bastardi

but with the offshore oil reserves you have, alot of things like this could be made easier if your state would wake up to the fact they are sitting on a gold mine. It makes me sick to see who suffers, I am sure its not hurting the people in Pelosi’s district that they tie up a source of revenue and recovery.
Sorry about having to drive home a point I am sure you already know.
If I click twice, will they catch me? Does that make me unethical..lets say the way I am because I dont believe in the global warming scam that is killing your state and our country

Anything is possible

Mine put it up to 2,801.
We can’t afford to lose even more history……

David Ball

Sean…. For the people who live in Chico….. LA is a foreign country( hundreds of miles away)…. And LA can move LA to some South Pacific Island that is rapidly sinking.
No “Love Lost” in Chico for the valley girls…
fur shure, fur shure.
Oh yeah, like done.
