Menifee in Pictures: What Happened to the Forest?

OK, we need some of you "old-timers" to fill us in again. Why are all these tree stumps sitting in a field along Holland Road just west of Briggs Road? Was someone planning to clear this field but stopped before clearing the stumps? Were some of them simply dumped there? What's the story?

  2. What is a nautical cove? Is that the name of the housing tract?
