We walk along the trail at least once a week to make sure it is cleared of trash, shopping carts, graffiti, other debris, and everything is being maintained. The trail is now nearly litter free all the time, the graffiti gone, things maintained in good shape. I always hear about how nice the Oso Creek Trail is and I am glad that People First is playing a part in keeping it that way. Our Chapter also did 2 Community Conversations on chemical exposures for the CDC, submitted coments on several of the Chemical Exposure Community Conversation Work group reports, and did comments on the final National Report on Chemical Exposure. We have also provided comments and feedback on several state environmental initiatives dealing with diesel particulates in air pollution, chemicals in drinking water, and chemicals in commercial refregerants. As a disabled persons organization, People First Orange County gets the connection between the problems of increasing disabilities and birth defects and mothers and fetusis exposure to various chemical pollutants. Best wishes, MichaelE. Bailey.

LAST YEAR AND FINISHED WITH MY CERTIFICATE IN WATERSHED MANAGEMENT. WHILE DOING MY RESEARCH PAPER IN THE CLEVELAND NATIONAL FOREST WITH THE SAN ANTONIO CREEK WATERSHED MANAGER, UPLAND, CALIF. WE NOTICED A LEAD AND BURNED TIRE TOXIC WASTE DUMP ON FEDERAL LAND ABOUT HALF WAY TO OUR WATERSHED 100 FT. BELOW. NOW WE REPORTED THIS WITH MY PICTURES ,NOTES, AND SAMPLES TO THE FOREST RANGER ON DUTY AT THE OLD BALDY , RANGER STATION…THE TOXIC DUMP IS CLEANED UP…POINT MADE, WE NEED MORE WATERSHED SPONSORED FEDERAL COURSES SO DOCTORS LIKE ME CAN BE THE EYES AND EARS TO PROTECT OUR WATERSHED. ALSO, WE NEED MORE RANGERS, ONLY A FEW AT OLD BALDY STATION, TO OBSERVE BAD GUYS THAT THREATEN OUR WATERSHED. DR. KAMANSKY, CAPTAIN, US, ARMY
