After reading the article, I'm concerned that although it presents an accurate depiction of what took place on the Monterey Peninsula during this time period, it fails to mention a very different and more positive environment that many of us experienced during this same era. I was born in Fort Ord in the early '60s and attended Ord Terrace elementary, King Jr. High and Seaside High school. The picture painted in the article was not my experience at all, and I am not alone. This article and the book that Ms. McKibbens wrote for some reason seems to be intent on focusing on the negative experiences and omits many important facts that would shine an entirely different light on this important subject. I am delighted that my home is receiving such attention but it does all Seaside and Monterey Peninsula natives a great disservice if the story that's being told is incomplete.
