WARNING: Diesel Fuel Spilled In Freshwater Crk.



Last night a diesel fuel truck went off a bridge and into Freshwater creek spilling an unknown but large amount of diesel into the creek. The Humboldt Fire District estimates that 60-100 gallons of fuel went into the creek. Local blogger Heraldo reports that "the creek reeks of diesel" and "There’s oil below Freshwater Park so containment isn’t entirely successful."

The Times-Standard says "County health officials are advising area residents who draw water from Freshwater Creek to find other sources while cleanup continues..."

Thanks to Heraldo for alerting the community.

howdy.

sorry about posting this here, all out of context and whatnot, but i don't knopw/couldn't figure out how to email you...but anyways...

theplazoid.blogspot.com is back! ...and we have a sad victory of sorts to report:

in a post from January 15, 2006, the fraudulent "Mental Health Services Act Community Support and Services Plan" is exposed as being mathematically impossible and fraudulent in its assertion that 80% of homeless people have "mental health issues." (http://theplazoid.blogspot.com/2006/01/another-look-at-mental-health-services.html)

Well, in a Eureka Reporter article form 8/20/2007 "Bureau probes fraud claims" (http://www.eurekareporter.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?ArticleID=27435) it says:

"Utecht said a diagnosis of substance abuse alone would not permit reimbursement for the time clients spent in the county’s psychiatric inpatient facility, Sempervirens.
He claims “hundreds of thousands of dollars billed this way” over a period of four years, dating back to when he was a temporary “rent-a-doc” with the county.
“If it’s a polysubstance diagnosis, the county doesn’t get paid for SV,” Utecht said in an interview. “They need psychiatrists to change it to ‘psychiatric’ to get paid.”

So, it is a "victory" in that tad's article accurately saw through the bullshit and called out a fraud before the whistle-blower came out.
Of course, there hasn't been much publicity or CHANGE, so, i guess it's not so much a "victory" as it is an "i told you so."

be well, keep up the good work

Hey plazoider, thanks for the update. Maybe I'll put the email address back up. I wasn't checking it much and worried that peoples letters would get put into the junk folder and deleted before I found them.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel Saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved. Search engine optimization, Try to Be happy

tornado fuel saver sucks dude. I am engine builder and all of the claims are false we have even showed customers on the engine dyno that the tornado actually decreases horsepower and we had to explain to customers why it decreases fuel mileage. ALL CLAIMS TORNADO MAKES ARE FALSE EXCEPT FOR THE SWIRLING MOTION PRODUCED BY THE TORNADO THAT IT DOES BEFORE THE THROTTLE BODY, CARB, OR TURBO, BUT IT ONLY CAUSES TURBULENCE THAT WONT ALLOW DENSE AIR TO FLOW INTO ENGINE. turbulance makes it harder for air to flow into the engine and decreases HP/TQ and MPG. if you dont believe me your welcome to try it yourself for 65 bucks and learn the hardway
