Why is this website allowed to operate, with a basically one-sided oppinion (by several entities, who are obviously one-in-the-same person) and there is no way to respond by other opinions??
Why cannot someone with a question for further knowledge on a subject stated ask a question?
Why cannot someone wanting further knowledge of the violations stated ask for more information!?
This is clearly a one-sided oppinion, and people need to have an opportunity for discussion and questions.
If possible, and if you are willing to take the "heat" you need to make this availabilty!
By stating the 'opinions' posted on this website, you are basically giving a one-sided view. If you are accurate and correct you will be willing to answer questions from people reading this website and wanting to know how you KNOW.
You will be willing to answer curious concerned people who want more information.
Stating that the President of the Board of Directors said """" is your interpretation. You need to allow for the possibilty for questions as to why he said that and what the situation was.
You are just 'blowing in the wind' if you don't allow the general public to question your 'in the know' oppinion and do not allow for further question!
You need to open your website to other oppinions. Not just that of you, or your 'person who told you.'

If is the website that your referring to, here are the facts:

1.EVERYTHING on the website, facts figures and statements, are verified either by audio recording or actual printed government documents. "If it ain't recorded, it ain't reported"

2. The website has a reader comment feedback form and an email address that can be used by anyone to ask questions about articles that are on the website. In fact a lot of readers use it regularly to ask questions and to request additional documents and files. We here at Salton Sea West believe in full disclosure of government activity and therefore we answer ALL questions that are asked about articles we have posted. If an additional government document is requested we use several means, including "Requests for Public Information" to obtain what the reader required, all for free. "Sand, Sun, and Sea...Plus Information for Free"

Residents, Business Persons, People from other States, Canada, England, Australia, and even a Bank in Latvia (Geothermal funding), as well as several Law Firms have asked questions this way. And we responded to them ALL.

3. On the issue of opening the website to the general publics opinions; Salton Sea West is not a BLOG it is an e-News publication that disseminates FACTS and limited editorial content from several writers. As this is a private, personally funded website we decided long ago that the ranting, raving, and bad mouthing that happens on BLOGS belongs on BLOGS. There are plenty of opportunities for the public to discuss SCSD issues on BLOGS such as Topix and elsewhere.

There is also the possibility of other private citizens starting their own websites about the area. Be aware though that it takes hours of research to back up ALL of the articles with documented facts as Salton Sea West always has. Constant updating and fact checking is also very time consuming, as well as promoting the website.

We welcome competition (as if TRUTH can compete with itself), the more writers there is on a subject the more information is disseminated.

Thank you “Not Listening To Hear-Say” for starting this thread, the more visitors to the better!
