Unaimous Opposition to Marine Expansion

On May 25, 2011, the OHMVR Commission voted unanimously to OPPOSE all expansion by the 29 Palms Marine Base.

Anyone wanting play by play comments on what happened at the OHMVR Commission meeting with the Marines, follow Helen Baker. It was amazing. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1063153087

A battle is won, but the war goes on.

Okey dokey, when I click on it I get the profile page but I can scroll down and read all my comments. Hmmmmmmm

Anyhow, it was interesting posting up the comments made at the meeting by the Marines, the Commisioners and the public, wish you could read them.

The bottom line is that the Marines DID NOT present a compelling argument to the Off Highway Commission and the public speakers DID!

The Marines argument was so bad that the commissioners didn't even believe that they needed to expand at all, let alone into Johnson Valley. This was definately not what the Marines were expecting to happen.

Again, we have not won the war, but we did win an important battle as this is the first state government commission to come out on our side.

"Helen only shares some profile information with everyone. If you know Helen, add her as a friend or send her a message."

Either way, good to hear the news.

I've changed my facebook profile so everybody and anybody can read, write, whatever, so I hope that works and I don't get major spammers. Of course, I think that you have to be on facebook. If this doesn't work for you I'll try to cut and paste the meeting notes.

Call me naive, or maybe I'm just plain stubborn, BUT, I do not accept that premise.

I will keep working to save Johnson Valley until they scrape the last grain of sand out from under my fingernails.

What are the real consequences of this vote? What's this commission and how much power do they have?

no need for name calling, without your dedication, we would be no where near where we are today.

tell yourself whatever you need to to keep up the good work... we all appreciate it.

Thanks for the kind words, we all do what we can. I didn't realise I was name calling myself. LOL
