    Natural Perspectives: Land Trust's composting plan is no good
    Editor's note: This removes the paragraph regarding the water tanks, which will be above ground, not in pits that were to be no larger than 8 feet deep. Vic and I learned early this week that the California Department of Fish and Game has extended the...
  • Mailbag: Plan is cause for concern

    I must say that Lou Murray was right on about the proposed construction on the Bolsa Chica Mesa ("More like a 'heart attack for the mesa,'" Natural Perspectives, Feb. 10). Not enough scrutiny has gone into the project as of yet. It involves too many...
