MY MY MY, Fresh PHOTOs have arrived. This is the third time MANAGEMENT, that I know of OSHA stateing the use of ---- SHORING ----- to protect the workers. I do not have to spell it out to you for you have the same copies I have on the PROPER USE FOR SHORING given to you by OSHA.
Common Sense! You need that in your job! This time OSHA should bring the hammer down... HARD! Will you be wearing your hard hats when they do? You may pass out all the "GOOD JOB, BROWNEY AWARDS" you want. Take off your Rose Colored Glasses and get with it.
I can see it now, Do to a Fatality on our part, SCSD is now hireing. Must be a Chance Taker! Great Insurance Benifits! Must be unable to follow the rules, a plus!

So were are you posting these pictures at for all the Community to see or are these headed the same way as the last set; in secret and delivered by Director Barrett at a Board Meeting?

If you've got them show them, people would like to see what you've captured on film.

They do not belong to me. BUT, I did advise the person who took them where to send them. OSHA, was at the top of the list. My My, OSHA will have a field day with this one.
For who knows when they will show up? I just hope the employees will be shown the Regulations that SCSD Management received by OSHA and,
If Management has a problem with them REFUSEING, the Employees Union should be told, for they are within their rights!

Once again I find myself posting to correct another distortion of the facts by Imari Love (Love is actually an acronym for "Left Out Verifiable Essentials".

I as a citizen (and co-editor of )was anonymously sent a set of photos and a cover letter of some not to OSHA standards excavations by the district.

I as a Director, as well as the other Directors, were sent a copy of the same cover letter but without the photos.

At the next Board meeting I asked the GM why the the Directors hadn't received the photos that the cover letter stated were attached. Especially when the letter was addressed to the Directors.

The GM said he didn't know who it was that made the decision not to give the Directors a complete copy of the mail that was sent to the Directors.

SSDD another example of censorship by the SCSD!

I would have posted the pictures on but they are photocopies and they don't show up very good after I scanned them. If I had access to the actual color photo or it's digital equivalent I certainly would put it online

I would like all to know that it was not Director Barrett that posted the packet. I posted them for a reason. SCSD has been warned time and time again of the situation by OSHA. They believe they are above following the Regulations for Safety.
All it takes is one FATALITY, before they wake up. I sent out packets to at least agencies to correct this matter and according to the new pictures I have seen, they are still not enforcing the Regulations. What will it take?
I did send a packet to Mr. Barrett, knowing how the SCSDistrict is at covering up important matters to hide there inefficiency. It was a good thing I did, for only the letter was given to the Board Members.
Now, who is CORRUPT? Mr. Barrett was asked by me too bring up the matter for I did not see it up for discussion on the agenda. As stated before, it costs the SCSDistrict more of our Tax Dollars covering things up then to ADMIT wrong -doing. So lets pass out some FAILURE AWARDS! I know who would get the most for not doing their job correctly, do you?

For the convenience of the readers, here is a timeline of events. My knowledge of the chain of events comes from several sources; the delivery of the actual letter (and photos) that were sent to the SCSD and to OSHA and several other government agencies and to me, as well as the letter (letter only) that was "filtered" through SCSD Management and also from a response letter that OSHA sent to the SCSD:

1. An anonymous letter with attached photos was sent to OSHA, Imperial County, as well as to the SCSD's field workers union.

2. 2 weeks later the same anonymous letter and photos were sent to the SCSD Board of Directors.

3. 8 or 9 days past before SCSD Management gave a copy of the letter (letter only) to the Directors.

4. 2 days later I received the letter AND photos from an anonymous source by way of my personal family

5. A short time later the district received a letter from OSHA.

6. I received a copy of the OSHA letter about a week later only after I asked the GM to show me anything that OSHA had sent the district on the subject.

8. During the next board meeting I asked the GM why only the letter was given to the directors and not the photos also. His response was that he didn't know who was responsible for that.(And I have always been led to believe that the buck stoppped at his door...)

I received the letter and photos after a copy of the letter (letter only) was given to the directors by management. At that moment in time the letter had been sent to OSHA and the district so there was no need for me to do anything except to just sit back and watch the Monkeys fall out of the trees....and boy did they...)

the SCSD has for the convenience of those who are displaced by the SoCal Fires offered free WIFI access so you can get your emails, update your information, and see how the area is doing.

bring your laptop wifi enabled, park in the parking lot, and your good to go.

Also, the Salton City Library has Internet Computers and will be open this Friday. They are in the same building the SCSD office is.

Thanks Imari for passing on the WIFI information that I had posted at the district office. It's good to see that the highspeed satellite service that I secured for the district is helping the public.

Ah yes, the all power wizard of oz speaks... I'm sure you still hiding behind that curtain on that box. You probably still have a back door access to the SCSD's Computers.

Do I have a back door access do the SCSD computers?...Sure don't, the district lost it's free tech support when they tried to EXHORT copyrighted material from the wife and a cost of $12,000 to the taxpayers...Guess it's my fault for standing up to a government that tries to steal property from its' citizens...
