No part in malicious email What became apparent from last week's vote was that the freight service is important to someone as they used the recent decision to malign Mr. Rusak. The personal attack of someone that wasn't running for office was classless and directed by someone who had something to gain. Who was that? I can't figure out why some knucklehead copied me on this email. It could be because I was the only person in town who asked a critical question of a candidate on Candidate's Night. I thought this was the night to ask them real ques- tions. The audience was stand- ing room only, but very few questions were queried. Or, it could be that because we had a campaign to get signatures on our initiative? In any case, I would like to personally apologize to anyone who thought I knew of, or paid for, this tasteless email. Mark Malan Avalon Via El Rancho Escondido Road to reopen this weekend Road has been closed to public since October BY KRISTIN METCALF FOR THE ISLANDER We are pleased to announce that Via E1 Rancho Escondido will be opened this weekend. The road was closed in October to allow crews to evaluate the naturally occurring asbestos that had been found in certain areas within E1 Rancho Escondido. ERE reported the finding of asbestos to the appropriate state agency, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, then prepared and submitted a Mitigation Plan to them, which was approved. Over the last few months, ERE did the required work, and the road is again available for general use. Speed limits are now post- ed, and speed bumps have been placed on the road where it passes through the ranch. We are delighted that this important thoroughfare has re- opened, providing the Catalina community with greater access to the interior of the island.
