There is $2649. in our bank account. We were reimbursed for Tsunami

Blue Water task Force – Walt, Victoria
All water tests have been good so far this year. Walt & Victoria continue
to do tests at Virgin Creek.

Coastal Commission Grant tsunami debris beach clean-ups:
Diane Duncan will coordinate the next beach clean-up on Sept. 21.  Jackie
will assist. New T-Shirts will be available!

State Parks Ten Mile Haul Road Project:
Various like-minded groups are opposed to this project. Victoria will
contact one of these local groups to determine our best approach.
Suggestions were Westport group or Cleone group- Dave will investigate this further, and email Victoria. Walt will ask the Land Trust what their position is.

Troy Nicolini from NOAA in Eureka presented weather and buoy report
options, including the Hanson Plot forecasting, which shows swell
direction(s) and size. Cool!

Our next meeting is scheduled for Nov. 2, 5:00, at Walt & Jackie’s.

  1. The Ocean Protection Coalition (OPC) will hold a general meeting on November 19 at 7 p.m. in the Fort Bragg Library meeting room.

    The purpose of the meeting is to form a group to keep fracking out of Mendocino County. Both our federal and state governments have failed to protect U.S. citizens from the extremely dirty practice of fracking. We will have to do it ourselves.

    For those who want to learn more about fracking, an informative video will be shown at 5 p.m. It will either be Gasland, Gasland Part II or Split Estate.
