Vandalism reported in 10 national parks of the West 

Incidents illustrated on social media 

WASHINGTON: The National Park Service is investigating reports of vandalism in at least 10 national parks in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, and Utah.

While we can’t discuss details of a case under investigation, we take the issue of vandalism seriously. National parks exist to preserve and protect our nation’s natural, cultural and historic heritage for both current and future generations. Vandalism is a violation of the law and it also damages and sometimes destroys often irreplaceable treasures that belong to all Americans.

There are forums for artistic expression in national parks because national parks inspire artistic creativity. These images are outside that forum and outside the law.

Background: Vandalism, as described in the Code of Federal Regulations, 36 CFR 2.31(a)(3): Destroying, injuring, defacing, or damaging property or real property.

Parks affected: Yosemite National Park, California; Death Valley National Park, California; Crater Lake National Park, Oregon; Zion National Park and Canyonlands National Park, both in Utah. We are awaiting confirmation in Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona; Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park and Joshua Tree National Park, both in California; Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado; Bryce National Park, Utah.

About the National Park Service. More than 20,000 National Park Service employees care for America's 401 national parks and work with communities across the nation to help preserve local history and create close-to-home recreational opportunities. Visit us at www.nps.gov

Charles Manson - Movies and Rock and Roll Stars

''One of our world problems is movies and rock and roll stars. They will do anything to play act the lives of and then cheat and claim the efforts of others, steal their music, have them locked up in nut wards. My whole life has been played off by actors and such. We tried to bring ATWA into minds play for survival of life but the people sold it out for greed and money systems and destroyed their worlds. They will end up with no soul, no trees, no wildlife, no air or water. It's just a dream and god is the mind or the way we see, hear, taste, and feel. Try to understand all is one and only one can fix earth.'' - Charles Manson

Family Jams | Always is Always Forever

''Later the guys started composing a lot of new songs in the desert. They tripped and came to a lot of thoughts based upon their awareness, their knowIedge, and an old Hopi Indian who didn't even talk -- he just smiled.The songs explain it better than I could. l believe that they had tuned into "Now", the endIess space of what was, what is, and what could be. They read the traiIs.''
