  1. University Medical Center has merged with Children’s Hospital of San Angelo, Delta Community Hospital, Castle Heights Community Hospital, Marshall Community Hospital, and Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital. CALSTAR (California Shock Trauma Air Rescue) and Stanford Life Flight are the two area medevac services. CALSTAR 10 is based at Lakeview Airport.
  2. Have there been any mergers of hospitals? My guess is that there have been. The University Medical Center has merged with Children's Hospital of San Angelo, Delta Community Hospital, Marshall Community Hospital, Castle Heights Community Hospital, and Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital. Who provides medical helicopter service? My guess is CALSTAR (California Shock Trauma Air Rescue) and Stanford Life Flight.
  3. I like the notion of paddlewheelers near The Wharves from the original book, but we'll extend it to cruises of both rivers run by Golden City Cruises. The Golden City Queen is a sternwheeler and carries the fleet's main kitchen. The Good Ship Lollypop is a sidewheeler. The Golden City Party Liner is a barge pushed by a tug, the Party Liner II.

  5. The Lakeview Airport, a single-runway airport with 120 aircraft tie-downs, mostly serves private plane owners in nearby neighborhoods. Lakeview Aviation, Inc. is the only fixed base operation. The runway, 16/34, is 6,000’ long by 150’ wide. The single helipad is 60’ on each side. Lakeview Road runs past the airport. On one side is a ShortStop, a Black Diamond Inn, a Harris Rent-A-Car, and a Texxon Oil gas station. On the other side is the airport itself. A chain-link fence and buildings separate the parking lot from the runway and ramp area. A card-controlled door permits people to park near a series of tee hangars and Lakeview Aviation, Inc. has an entrance from the parking lot.
  6. Roe Island Lighthouse, on Roe Island on the east end of Suisun Bay, is the closest lighthouse to San Angelo.
  7. We have a couple of people interested in joining the game, but I haven't heard back from them, yet.
  8. From my Junior Justice Foundation campaign, which is set in San Angelo: University of California San Angelo is home to the San Angelo Oceanic Institute which is located between South San Angelo and Brenton. They lease the RV Pacifica and the DSV Sea Bat from the Office of Naval Research. The Pacifica also carries two 17-foot Boston Whaler work/rescue boats, the MV Discovery and the MV Enterprise.
  9. There are several 2-leaf bascule bridges crossing the Del Oro River between South San Angelo and San Angelo International Airport. Since they're on less-important roads, they aren't on the area map. Two or three that are less than a mile apart can be operated from the same remote location with video cameras to monitor river and road traffic.

  11. To me, low-powered is a 300 point base plus 60 more points from complications while standard is a 400 point base plus 75 more points from complications. I think low-powered is best for teen characters. If it's not exact, that's still okay. It just needs to be close.
  12. It was going to be 400 with +75, but 300 with +60 is better for teen characters.
  13. I would say less powerful. The burglar doesn't have Phase's powers.
  14. What about an elusive cat burglar who may be female and uses smoke and flash pellets to dodge pursuers and uses knockout pellets and sleep darts on marks?
  15. No problem. That way, I don't have to create two other schools. Most Sailor Scouts attend Colfax Elementary (K-8) which is near Allderdice. However, Sailor Mars (Rumiko Hino) attends Winchester Thurston, a private school.
  16. I'm giving some thought to having the Sailor Scouts in the game. If so, they might be the focus. Sailor Mercury will, because of her mini-computer and visor, be run by the GM.
  17. Yep, probably the first season only. Other crooks probably would've been added in between show episodes. Of course, the Dark Kingdom might've been controlling or influencing them.

  19. I posted the following to the main San Angelo thread earlier today. I'm now envisioning the Samuel Bracket City Park this way. The southernmost part has The Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, a pool, an outdoor ice rink, a lake, picnic shelters, a disc golf course, soccer fields, tennis courts, an outdoor running track, and a softball diamond. Just north of that is the Riverside Park clone, more athletic fields, a dog park, and places to fish. The northern end has the city zoo and aviary. Restrooms, trash cans, and water fountains are scattered throughout the park. Although there is a vintage car race at Sonoma Raceway, there is some talk of having one, for charity, in the Samuel Bracket City Park. There is also talk of a go-kart race for charity there.

  21. aylor Allderdice High School, which the heroes attend, is close to the Tree of Life Congregation. According to the San Angelo Times, Solomon M. Kaplan is the rabbi, Harry P. Silver is the cantor or chazzan, David Daniels is the executive director, and his wife, Leah, is the educational director. Anyone passing it would occasionally see the custodian, a blonde woman in a blue top and khaki pants, working outside the building. The fourth version of The Mickey Mouse Club is taped in San Angelo. Most of the Mouseketeers attend Allderdice. Attached is a file with some stuff about it. Not all of the people at the school are mentioned in it. TAHS.doc TAHS.doc
  22. While one side of Highland Park runs along the Allegheny River, Schenley Park doesn't touch it. Of course, the Three Rivers Heritage Trail System runs along the rivers and there are a number of parks, including Point State Park, North Shore Riverfront Park, South Shore Riverfront Park, and Allegheny Riverfront Park, all of which are parcels of Three Rivers Park, the city's urban waterfront park along its rivers that provides a continuous green trail link between existing and future riverfront destinations.
  23. That also describes New York City's Riverside Park. It is, admittedly, smaller than the Samuel Bracket City Park, but the concept still works. I can see it containing the Highland Park Zoo, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and the Bob O'Connor Golf Course (both in Schenley Park), and the National Aviary all of which are here in Pittsburgh.
  24. Is it my imagination, or is the Samuel Bracket City Park 10-miles long and 1.5 -miles wide?
