Jennifer O'Neil and Jamie Taylor cuddle near the conclusion of a Rascal Flatts concert - the final event ever at the 5,500-seat Konocti Harbor amphitheater. After 50 years as Kelseyville's premier resort and blue-collar playground, Konocti Harbor closed its doors in November 2009 because a buyer could not be found, ending an era in Lake County entertainment and leaving an estimated 1,000 locals out of work in a region that already suffered from 15% unemployment. Taylor, who worked at the resort for five years, said, "We're really gonna miss this place. I've lived here for 28 years and have been coming here as long as I can remember."
