Hi,
Good article on Jan Vandersloot in LATimes today

OOG is going to Cypress tonight (Monday) map, etc. on http://Orange-County.net/cypress.htm
Cypress' OCSD Director, Piercy, makes faces and gawks when other Directors question the waiver, as caught on OCSD closed circuit TV at the first June meeting.

Stanton tomorrow (Tues.) on http://Orange-County.net/stanton.htm

 

 

Stanton's OCSD Director, Brian Donahue, has stated that he enjoys eating the fish caught over the outfall. (Dr. Geo. Robertson, of OCSD, stated that he enjoys the shrimp caught there.)
Compare this with acutal photos of what a tiny outfall, Goleta, actually looks like--no fish, no live at all except encrusted, cancerous growths around the diffuser pipes (as shown on http://StopTheWaiver.com thanks to HealTheOcean.org and BirdingByBoat.org) Be prepared to answer arguments based on:

1. What is the waiver
2. Cost
3. Name the 11 cities, including nearby Los Alamitos Seal Beach, Buena Park and La Palma, that have already taken a position against the waiver
4. Combat Stan Grant's "science" that the sewage discharges are not the major problem
5. Answer Blake's argument that "cleaning up OCSD will take 11 years" and that it won't clear up all pollution problems.
