Video Village With Ask Chris: Thank You Will Rogers

I wrote about the tough times California State Parks are currently facing in the July issue of Los Angeles magazine. Dozens of parks are threatened with closure and it’s been a tough road for all 278 mountains, beaches and forests that the state operates. I recently spent a fun afternoon at Will Rogers State Park in Pacific Palisades and was grateful that the family of the plain-talking cowboy donated the land that we still enjoy so many years after his death. The star has been gone since 1935, but his house, polo field, barns and even his car are still just as he left them. His last performance was at the recently restored California Theater in San Bernardino. Here’s a tour.
