I began this blog in July of 2009 to cover local news. I wrote about a coffee shop, the opening of a new movie, road repairs, and the dedication of a new fire station. Then I turned my focus in a new direction (attempting my first novel) and the blog languished. One story, though, refused to die — Chevron’s proposal to develop the last of their played-out oil fields in West Coyote Hills. After years of contention, public meetings, marches through the streets of downtown Fullerton, negotiations, lawsuits, and finally a petition drive, the city council last night decided to put the matter to a city-wide vote in the 2012 election. I figure that gives me a year to blog the heck out of the issue, ponder all the questions I have in my own mind about it, an maybe clarify a few things for some of you too.
That means that I’ll finally doing what most people thought I meant to do in the first place, blog about the development (or preservation) of West Coyote Hills.
