Weekly , Molina admitted: "There's probably gonna be plenty of blame to go around on all of it. For us, we probably didn't have as thorough an EIR as we probably should have had. The county continued to retain Sapphos to handle the repatriation process despite the fact that their flawed EIR created an apparent conflict of interest.
Will You Still Be Working at 90?
A Los Angeles Times editorial called on the county to retain a professional mediator, but the county refused. The county refused to allow Native Americans to visit the excavated burial site to honor their ancestors unless they signed agreements to work for Sapphos. The county refused to allow descendants to visit the remains at the Natural History Museum unless they waived all claims arising from the excavations.
NPS notified the county by email on February 15, , that NPS had just learned about the uncovering of the cemetery and was withholding federal grant funds until the issue was resolved.

The federal process nevertheless has not been a model of democratic engagement based on full and fair information. The process has been confusing, inconsistent, and incomplete. The real consultations, decision making and work takes place with federal staff. The federal staff generally has not consulted with the Native Americans and descendants of the Pobladores themselves.
Thus federal staff worked closely with the county for months, advising the county on section consultations and the NAGPRA. For example, federal staff urged the county to act quickly to prepare an inventory of excavated remains and artifacts, in time for the NAGPRA review committee meeting in November , so the public would know what the county dug up.

The county concluded that the human remains included at least four Native Americans, although which four specifically was hard to tell. The committee nevertheless voted as follows on November 8: "In this instance, as the same treatment and disposition is agreeable to all Native and non Native parties concerned [sic],.
In apparent conflict with earlier staff recommendations for an inventory, and the review committee's decision that it had no jurisdiction, the Department of the Interior sent another NAGPRA letter to the county on January 3, , stating that the county had two years to prepare an inventory, that "repatriation of human remains and associated funerary objects cannot occur until after a Notice of Inventory Completion has been published in the Federal Register, and the notice cannot be published until the inventory has been prepared.

Younger men and women need to know that we do not have a "shelf life," that passing 40 and 50 and 60 is not the end of our lives but an ongoing challenge and opportunity to enjoy the benefits of having access to decades of experience and, hopefully, at least a little wisdom. I began The New 60 almost two years ago, when I was turning I wrote the column, now a book, in order to explore my personal and professional relationship with aging, agism, surviving AIDS, and outliving myself.
It developed into a look at how to live openly and vitally at The New 60 examines struggle, complaint, doubt, and prejudice, external and internalized.
