From the <a href="http://cactusjungle.com/archives/blog/exit.php?url_id=1810&amp;entry_id=1629" title="http://www.bakersfield.com/102/story/343145.html" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.bakersfield.com/102/story/343145.html’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Bakersfield Californian</a>:<br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;">The Canyons, perhaps the single most controversial development in Bakersfield today…. would put about 1,300 homes on 890 acres atop the bluffs overlooking the Kern River in northeast Bakersfield….<br />
<br />
