The demolition team stayed busy Friday the 7th turning the County Annex lot the county finished up its work at into grounds fit to found a hospital on. The Kearny Mesa square, all the public buildings destroyed, once and for all, saw the end of its old glory days serving as a civic center, and, became a construction range the workers cleaned up to prepare the footing for future construction work.
