It's probably been about five years now that Foster Farms dismantled the dairy plant at Briggsmore and McHenry. I recall reading in the Bee shortly thereafter that Foster Farms planned to plant grass in the vacant lot to keep it from becoming a weed infested vacant lot. Well, we're still waiting for that grass while looking at weed infested vacant lot. And still we wonder why Modesto consistently finishes at the bottom of desirable cities list.
