All four of them! It ain't easy being green. Our beautiful San Gabriel Mountain Foothills is not a "plant". The plants have all been scraped off.

The hike to Fish Canyon Falls is beautiful. I enjoyed it very much. I would not have been able to negotiate that goat trail. The Vulcan employees were polite and helpful. I am not anti-mining, I just don't think we need to destroy our beautiful mountains to get common rock. There are pits all around and mountains that do not make up the face of a city. Mountains that do not have thousands of families living in extreme proximity.

You don't want to give those four Vulcan employees a weekend off once in a while?
They only get, at most five or six a year.

There is a recorded and deeded public easement to access fish canyon any day of the year. Vulcan sought to quietly close this problematic public access by gating off the old trail. Vulcan publicly announced that the recorded easement was closed by prescription because the trail had not been used for 20 years. How ever they over looked the fact that they allowed the public to use that easement at least once a year for those 20 years.

I had the pleasure of informing Vulcan that our public easement is not closed be prescription.

All in Public Records.

Azusa Rock created the public easement and recorded and deeded it to Duarte before Vulcan bought the property. It clearly states that if Vulcan for some reason closes the easement they must create a new easement that is better than and more accessible then the old one.

Where are Duarte Officials. It is high time this public access to Fish Canyon Falls is restored for the Citizens to enjoy.

Rich people (like Vulcan) stepping on regular folks. Thing is, non-wealthy republicans will side with big companies who wouldn't give them the time of day. Are Goldman-Sachs and RJ Reynolds your best friends? If not, why support them with your corporate welfare tax dollars?

Could you get that information to the Duarte office please? Just get it to Karen, she'll know what to do with it.
Thanks "Done Deal".
