Who's Who and What's What
1. You can blog for the San Bruno Patch. You don’t have to be a great writer or a journalist to blog and there are no rules about how often you blog or what you write about. There are more than 18,000 Local Voices blogging on Patches across the country. This is a great opportunity for us to get the word out about what we are doing and what you are doing in and around our community. If you know others who might be interested, you should contact San Bruno Patch Editor Martin Ricard at email@example.com or please share with them this link: http://sanbruno.patch.com/blog/apply.
2. The San Mateo County Mosquito & Vector Control District has reported that two new West Nile virus positives were confirmed last week and two in Half Moon Bay this week. Remember to dump all standing water and call 877-WNV-Bird to report freshly killed birds or squirrels. A press release is attached. For more information, call 650-344-8592.
3. On Tuesday, neighbors along the 500 and 600 blocks of Seventh Avenue in the Belle Air neighborhood received a letter from PG&E (see attached) telling them that the utility had found a 10-foot section of an underground gas transmission pipeline running just feet east of their rear property lines that had become exposed, apparently because of soil erosion and drainage.
PG&E is in the process of requesting California Fish & Game and U.S. Fish & Wildlife permits to do the repair work, but, because of the endangered California Garter Snake and the Red Legged Frog in the protected area, these permits could take up to seven months—well past the upcoming rainy season when more of the pipe could become exposed. A photo showing the section (between the arrows) and the letter with contact information is attached. Could this become another Crestmoor?
