NOTICE: Cascades Oil Field Drilling Scheduled to Start

The oil field and the company that supports the contributions to the Patriot Oil Community Benefit Trust Fund which we administer, have as part of their outreach to our community, announced that they are finally starting drilling operations after 5-years of public hearings, and after securing lengthy City of Los Angeles’ approvals including an extensive update of the conditions of previous permits.

DCOR LLC will start drilling Friday, October 24, 2014 in the area north of Sesnon Boulevard, and south of the Sunshine Canyon Landfill’s berm. For those of you who might have concerns for fracking, or for drilling under the landfill, rest easy as neither occurs here. Only one (1) well will be drilled, and the drilling will last approximately 30-days.

Although all precautions have been taken, if you experience any problems (light, noise etc) please contact them at the special number that they have set up for the project at: (805) 622-7969.

    Patriot Oil Community Benefit Trust Fund (Administered by the North Valley Coalition) Update

Patriot Oil Community Benefit Trust Fund (Administered by the North Valley Coalition) Update

We continue to support the good work of the GHNNC by co-sponsoring CERT classes, co-sponsoring the Valley Disaster Preparedness 7th Annual Fair in our efforts toward helping to enrich the lives of our community and to prepare the community from a potential earthquake disaster in what we all know will probably happen one day. As our president, Wayde Hunter is fond of saying:“If we only save one life it will be worth it”.

To that end which have just partnered with the Red Cross to provide a “CPR Anytime” program to train a total of 1000 students and their families in CPR this year at the Van Gogh Charter Elementary School, Robert Frost Middle School , John F. Kennedy High School, and Granada Hills Charter High School.

On a less serious note we have completed the final portion of the revamping of the Bee Canyon Park playground with the addition of a canopy (see below), and have started work on the restoration of the trailhead of the Nature Trail in O’Melveny Park among other projects.

The Scandinavian country has become so good at managing waste, they have to import garbage from the UK, Italy, Norway and Ireland to feed the country’s 32 waste-to-energy (WTE) plants, a practice that has been in place for years.

“Waste today is a commodity in a different way than it has been. It’s not only waste, it’s a business,” explained Swedish Waste Management communications director Anna-Carin Gripwell in a statement. (more…)
