Remco Abex is who was responsible for a great amount of the contamination and dumping in and around Willits of which he was a director! Most kids who attended Baechtel Grove will remember cutting across the contaminated REMCO PROPERTY to go to Lunas Market,( recently tore down due to contamination), they let the kids on that poisoned land and let them walk in the water of the poisoned ditch right next to REMCO seperating Remco from the School. Kids had extreme cases of allergic reactions on their faces from the air, and local doctors would prescribe pills and creams explaining it was only acne, later during the summer or when at the High School their complexions would clear right up. http://188.8.131.52/search?q =cache:J1k8zYS-jv4J:www.willit snews.com/howardfoundation/ci_ 5242432+MARGIE+HANDLEY&hl= en&ct=clnk&cd=6&gl =us AND THIS WOMAN HAD THE NERVE TO ACCEPT THE $4,000,000 settlement CHECK! WILL THE CONTAMINATION ON BAECHTEL ROAD BE CLEANED UP BEFORE ANY NEW DEVELOPMENT?
City gives $4 million to hospital fund The City of Willits presented a check for $4 million to the Frank R. Howard Hospital Building Fund at Wednesday night’s city council meeting. The check was the result of a process that began in 2005, when Willits physicians persuaded the city’s legal staff that since securing the $4 million in funds for medical monitoring and environmental repair promised in the consent decree seemed to be impossible, a $4 million payment to the Howard Hospital Foundation would benefit Willits in a tangible way. City staff then approached PepsiAmerica with the idea, and PepsiAmerica agreed. On June 14, the Willits City Council voted unanimously to approve the deal. In December 2006, Judge Susan Illston, who oversees the consent decree between the City of Willits and PepsiAmerica, also ratified the agreement. At the presentation ceremony, former city councilmen Bruce Burton and Denny McEntire were asked by Willits Mayor Tami Jorgensen to present the check to businesswoman Margie Handley, president of the Howard Foundation and daughter of Robert Harrah, a founder and former owner of Remco.“This gives me a huge sense of pride to see what is taking place here tonight,” McEntire said.“The hospital will bring to Willits the biggest economic opportunity this community has seen in a hundred years.” Burton told the council and the public that in his view the $4 million was, in a sense, a gift.“They really didn’t have to do this,” Burton said.“I guess you could say they had a social obligation and they stepped up to the plate. But legally–as someone who has been watching and studying the legal aspect of this whole thing–I am not so sure we had a good case and I don’t think we would have seen those funds in our lifetimes. This is a substantial gift to the City of Willits.”Handley said words could not express her happiness.“Because of this money we will be able to break ground on this project this summer.” Councilwoman Holly Madrigal said she was looking forward to beginning the healing process, while Councilwoman Karen Oslund publicly thanked Dr. Mills Matheson, a leading player in the Willits medical community who took a leading role in advocating acceptance the agreement between the city and PepsiAmerica.“I personally want to thank Dr. Mills Matheson,” Oslund said.“During all the years that I’ve been here, of all the people I know Dr. Matheson is the most qualified to advise us and is the best-informed on the health effects of chromium,” Oslund said.“This community owes him a great debt, as well as to all our former council people who were with us through all those dark days and those terrible, long meetings.”

Are you upset that we have exposed the fact that margies Hot Rocks stands to make LOTS AND LOTS of money whether the Hospital is built or not,(they already cashed in on the sight work)????
Are you upset Remy was able to put together a conclusive test PROVING that Margie Handleys fathers company REMCO poisoned our entire community???

interesting enough he hit all the streets named after the daughters of Willits' most infamous POLLUTER!-Robert Harrah After creating the destructive subdivisions of Pine Mountain and Brooktrails Harrah focused his energy on building yet another subdivision "Harrah Manor" While polluting Willits School Children with chromium and other toxic materials, Bob Harrah (who brought the Infamous Masonic Harrahs' Arch from Reno to Willits where he crowned the success of his pollution in front of Remco/Safeway) began naming streets in his infamous urban sprawl South of Willits after his own family members, ie Margie Lane is named ater Bob Harrahs daughter Margie Handley, YES the same Margie Handley who accepted the $4,000,000 check to build her Privately Owned Hospital ( see she is the chair of her daddies "Howard Foundation")- the Howard Foundation was founded by the polluter himself.
I wonder if maybe he knew he was poisoning the local citizens and knew one day his family would profit from the polluted peoples health ailments.--- Why else would he invest so much cash in to starting thios foundation- guilt??? Maybe! Greed??? Maybe!
Anyways heres the Polluter poisoners daughter and here "foundation"
Can any one say "CORRUPTION!"
