Save Trestles…AGAIN!

Thanks for all your help. However, UC Irvine’s Bren Center did NOT play host to the Commerce Department’s public hearing on the 241 Toll Road on July 25th. They feared that the turnout from supporters of San Onofre State Beach and Trestles would overwhelm the facilities at UCI, estimating that over 10,000 of you would show up. So the meeting has been moved. More on that in a bit.  For now…

The Feds Need to Hear from YOU!
Federal public comment is open right now, and will be open until Oct 2.

The Surfrider Foundation has an action alert asking the Secretary of Commerce to uphold the Coastal Commission decision here: http://actionnetwork.org/campaign/tollroadappeal0408. If you have already completed this, their system will catch it.

And now for the moved meeting:


WHO: Surfrider Foundation activists, surfers, hikers and everyone who opposes the extension of the 241 Toll Road. It is critical that toll road opponents register to speak and attend the hearing to show their strong support for San Onofre State Beach.

WHAT: The U.S. Secretary of Commerce rescheduled public hearing regarding the controversial 241 Toll road extension.

WHEN: Monday, September 22, 2008 10:30 AM – 8:30 PM

WHERE: O’Brien Hall at the Del Mar Fairgrounds 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd. Del Mar, CA 92014

Even Eddie Vedder thinks it’s a good idea.


Save Trestles!

I’ve worn Mexican wrestling masks for you. I’ve made crazy moustache pictures for you. I risked my life getting a picture of creepybugthing for you. I’ve even braved shark infested waters for you (albiet unbeknownst to me until I was landing right on them and granted that the sharks were only 2-3 feet long).

So, now I have a favor to ask of you. Consider writing to US Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez to help save Trestles and San Onofre State Beach from the construction of the 241 Toll Roads. I love surfing there. You may to. You may love that I love to surf there. Click here to email Secretary Gutierrez.

It’s been a long battle so far, and so far so good. But the powers that be keep appealing to higher authorities every time they’ve been defeated. (And they’ve been defeated every time!) Click here to learn more.
