A Long Time Coming!
Monday, January 31, 2011 – KUSI's Michael Turko has been pushing for the cleanup of an abandoned Air Force base on Mount Laguna in the Cleveland National Forest. Turko says it was once the site of a cold war radar station watching for Soviet missiles, and no one was willing to clean up the toxic mess the Air Force left behind.
When I exposed this problem two and a half years ago, they said the cleanup would never happen. Even congressmen said it was too expensive and not worth the effort. But finally, after a quarter century of rot and disgrace, the demolition crews are moving full speed ahead… and it's been a long time coming!
