So many people have asked me for a copy of our special report: The San Gabriel: A River on the Edge” (originally published Aug. 27, 2000) that I’ve lost count. The problem was, it had sold out and there were no more hard copies to give out.
Now, we have a digitized copy for you all to see. It is on our web site. Or you can click the link and it will open up the PDF. Hint: You need to click “Full Screen” and then the (+) to zoom in on the text in order to read the stories and see the photos best. It is worth the effort!
Also, the articles are still quite relevant. Even more so. The U.S. National Park Service is considering making the San Gabriel River (and the Angeles National Forest and a large swath of the Puente Hills) a National Recreation Area (or NRA). It would come under the U.S. National Park Service. The next meeting on the topic will be 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at Cal Poly Pomona. I’ll see you there.
