Sludge, Tractors & Other Bad Behavior

So to say that I am over heavy equipment operations around these parts is an understatement.

It makes me a bit grumpy to have to listen to it all day long and then look at the crap they push over onto property belong to someone else–or to the MWD because it is also shoreline.

IMO the Fawnskin shoreline or property adjacent to it is not a dumping ground.

Doug..oh Doug (he is code enforcement)–where are you?

It seems that NS Tavern is going to be paving or something.

All the rocks and debris have been left in a barrier type of wall in a spot where the rain usually runs off into Grout Bay.

Nice, plus isn’t it a lovely view? Pics to follow but I am going to see if they clean it first.

There is a nice pile of old fencing dumped down there too.

At least the big dumping ground I discovered with my neighbor last year has been removed.

Because we have a lot of real estate and construction business in the area it seems as if that is one of the reasons poor behavior is allowed.

Hmm, now that I think of it, did I mention the contractors over on Chickasaw?

When the weather started getting nice–for a whole two days, some new guys were out working with their truck radios blaring.

Personally, I don’t like hired help making a disturbance in the neighborhood and am wondering why it is tolerated.

Same thing with their pets on the premises–but mainly running loose through town causing mayhem and madness.

So perhaps that is why I like winter–at least they work indoors and I don’t have to listen to it.

Unless of course it is echoing through the empty home and out around the Fawnskin amphitheater.


Then there is the sludge story–did you hear about it?

Big Bear made the Victorville Daily Press

Apple Valley shut the illegal operation down April 15, after receiving an anonymous tip that the Big Bear Area Regional Wastewater Agency was trucking its sludge to a desolate property on Central Road, north of Johnson Road.

The illegal sewage operation was shut down but not before about 300 tons of partially treated human waste was trucked down from Big Bear without permits, safeguards or odor controls in place.


All these issues boil down to destroying the environment when we are supposed to give a darn about it.

I wrote about the Fawnskin Chamber visit to BBARWA back in 2005 in case you are interested.

So, I guess I should try and end on a positive note?

Tomorrow is the Fawnskin town clean up (one of many) and drop by the Moose Lodge 2085 at 10am if you want to help and then at Noon head over to Amangela’s to party on the deck.

And finally, what a lot of people are talking about is the Community Bike Rides scheduled to take place the first three Saturday’s in May (May 1, 8 & 15).

Bike clinics will be held from 9:00am- 10:00am and basic bike rides will take place between 10:00am- 11:00am.

If you have not heard about this contact the Big Bear Chamber at (909) 866-4607.
