Supervisor Dianne Jacob provided stop-gap funding that will allow the Volcan Mountain Wilderness Preserve and Santa Ysabel Preserve East to remain open throughout the week. Santa Ysabel Preserve West will still remain open Thursday through Sunday only. Although unexpected, it came as no surprise considering the economic downturn, when midweek closures were proposed for the preserves that would have taken effect on July 1st. Budget cutbacks were proposed for 14 county parks and preserves, largely in the area of staff hours. VMPF immediately went into action to seek alternatives. Board members, Kathleen Beck and Howard Levenson, gave oral testimony and submitted a proposal to the Board of Supervisors at their June 15th meeting. VMPF was one of only two organizations that stepped forward to keep their respective parks open. As an alternative to the midweek closures, VMPF proposed to assist in recruiting sufficient volunteers to augment the county's existing volunteer park patrol program and assist with the coordination for training and scheduling. The proposal was enthusiastically welcomed and a meeting followed the next week between VMPF and key county staff prior to the final decision by the board. With an understanding in place to move forward right away with the alternative plan, county staff was able to go back to the supervisors and see what they could do about the timing and implementation since the closures were less than a week away. With only two days to spare, it was learned that out of the $400,000 reducticn that had been proposed, Supervisor Jacob put $360,000 back in the parks operating budget which will allow the preserves to remain open on their current schedules. The decision was made, in part, because a plan was already in place to start working now to address what continued on page 12 The Grand Pacific Band always a crowd favorite. Groceries. Fresh Produce.

Fortunately, some clever researchers have found a way to collect all that garbage without trashing the planet at the same time. Compacting garbage trucks have used diesel fuel since they were first introduced in the 1940s. Now, waste companies are looking to the latest technologies to cut down on costs, conserve energy and reduce emissions. Alternatives to diesel to power the fleet include compressed or liquefied natural gas or biodiesel, which can be made from trash itself. Garbage disposed into land- fills can also be used as a clean, renewable source of energy, by capturing methane gas, a natural by-product of landfills, and turn- ing it into fuel. More than 50 U.S. cities already have garbage trucks running on alternative fuels. In addition, garbage truck man- ufacturers are major investors in hybrid technology, similar to the technology powering many new cars. Hybrid engines are particu- larly promising for trash trucks due to the stop-and-go nature of. their routes; frequent braking gen- erates the hybrid power. To make trash collection even more efficient, collection compa- nies are using onboard technolo- gies, such as routing software and GPS systems, and doing simple things like regularly checking tire pressure and keep- ing trucks well maintained. Garbage fuels garbage trucks-- imagine that! Little things such as those can add up to big savings when done nationwide. This not only lowers costs, it significantly reduces pollution and improves air quality. "The garbage industry has changed remarkably in the last 20 years," said Bruce J. Parker, president of the National Solid Wastes Management Associa- tion. "We don't just haul trash away--we use science to solve pressing environmental chal- lenges." You can be part of the pollu- tion solution, too. Here are hints on how: • Buy durable products. • Repair/restore used items before replacing them. • Buy items you can reuse or recycle. • Avoid excess packaging. Buy products in bulk if you can.
