It is a very sad and shameful story about Hansen's Truck Stop ("Empire Falters," Dec. 2). To me it is just another part of a vanishing America that we all have come to rely on, which includes a good meal and a fair deal.
I bet if Hansen's was on I-5 or some other modern-day highway, we would have to endure the visual pollution and generic who-knows-what kind of unhealthy food and poor service from the chain restaurants.
If Caltrans treated Charlie Hansen like this,what can we expect from them at Richardson Grove, farther south. Shame on you, Caltrans.
