[fosc] re Report of illegal dumping into Sausal Creek channel -- Big OOPS. I got the address of the dumper WRONG

   My apologies  -- I was looking at the wrong notes on the same page when I
wrote up the report of dumping into Sausal Creek :(
   To be clear: The resident at 4000 Canon Ave is NOT dumping into the
creek. I know her and have apologized for mistakenly labeling her as the
offender. Karen is actually a VERY active community volunteer who would
never harm the creek watershed environment. Big, BIG mistake on my part.

   Now that I'm looking at the right notes, the address where a tenant is
dumping litter directly into the creek is the apartment building at 3922
Canon Ave.

   Again, my apologies for mistakenly giving the impression that one of our
neighborhood's hardworking volunteers was a litterbug. Nothing could be
further from the truth. She's right, I should be more careful before hitting
the 'send button'. I'm just grateful Karen's not the lawsuit type :)

Edward, I live at 4000 Canon and I have never, ever thrown thrash into
Sausal Creek. Please do be careful when you note an address. Karen
