Worth It's Weight In Gold
Just a few years ago, the Kern River flowed through Bakersfield, California adding a wonderful ambiance and an "only 100 degrees out, let's go to the river" attitude for locals. Now, the river mysteriously disappears between Hart Park and Bakersfield; about a six mile distance. Well, it's not so mysterious. The ongoing water wars between water companies have sucked the life out of the river. Water running through the town would make it a lot more attractive.
