Before reading the info below, I want to remind everyone that Fresno is at the core of the valley’s water scam. As I have stated all along, secret replacement of the water system is NOT being done legitimately or with permits or inspections. Ongoing discharging of raw sewage, leaving a trail of illness, respiratory, infections, even death ~ all being covered up by the City of Fresno (risk analysts.) Public records are being altered to cover up the evidence of this operation, leaving victims without help or recourse.
If you do a “Google search for, “whooping cough, + sewage” you may be shocked to learn of the connection as well as how contagious it is.

Pertussis, or whooping cough as it is commonly known, is on the rise in Fresno County. Officials say they’ve seen more than four times the number of cases in the first four months of the year than that of last year during the same period. Tonight on KSEE 24 News, we’ll look at ways to keep you and your family clear of an infection.
Being informed of how Pertussis spreads is the key to avoiding it. For help on how to do this, check these links:
Below is a copy of a news article that appeared yesterday. Nuclear power coming to Fresno, CA.
Friends, where do you think all the water will come from, for all of this. Possibly linked to CA’s water shortage scam, headquartered in Fresno?!?

‘Atomic Anne’ pitches nuclear power in Fresno
It hasn’t been the best of times for Anne Lauvergeon, advocate of the nuclear option.
Areva, the international energy company she heads, is behind schedule and over budget on a nuclear reactor in Finland. A South Korean group beat out Areva for a $20 billion contract in the United Arab Emirates. And, just this month, the French prime minister had to step in and save Lauvergeon’s job at the firm, which is 90% owned by France’s government.
But these troubles didn’t stop Lauvergeon from keeping a Fresno appointment to tout nuclear energy last week.
“Atomic Anne” became one of the world’s most powerful women by making tough sales, and now she wants the Holy Grail of nuclear ambition — California.
A decade ago, the idea of a new nuclear power plant in California would’ve been laughed off stage. But the recession, soaring energy costs and efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions have made it safe to debate nuclear energy in polite company again.
A Public Policy Institute of California poll last summer indicated that 46% of adults in the state favor more nuclear plants, with 48% opposed.
In 2001, 59% of Californians believed that no nukes were good nukes. Conclusion: attitudes are changing slowly, but there’s hope for the local cockeyed optimists who want to build two reactors in western Fresno County.
The big obstacle for Lauvergeon and others is California’s 1976 moratorium on new reactors — which is unlikely to end as long as the Democrats control the state Capitol. Lauvergeon’s rose-colored answer: Anything’s possible. Look at what’s happening in Sweden, Italy and elsewhere.
Frightened by the Three Mile Island meltdown, the Swedes voted in 1980 to never build another nuclear plant and to close down the ones they had by the end of this year. Late in 2009, the government there reversed course, deciding to keep 10 plants running and authorizing the purchase of replacement reactors.
Italy — the lone nuclear holdout among major industrialized nations — plans to start building its first one in 2013 and have four completed by 2020. All told, the number of nuclear reactors worldwide is expected to grow from 435 in 31 countries to 568 in 42 countries by 2020.
It was apparent how Lauvergeon has managed to stay atop Areva for 10 years. She’s smart, polished and tough. Nuclear isn’t a panacea, she says, but it is an important part of an energy and global warming solution that includes solar, wind and geothermal. Moreover, she says, today’s third-generation reactors are safer than those built 50 years ago, and advances in fuel recycling are reducing the need for disposal sites.
Judging by the profane signs on trees outside the downtown Exhibit Hall where Lauvergeon spoke, attempts to end Californian’s ban will continue to meet fierce resistance. Despite the new embrace of the technology in Europe, many here believe that relying on nuclear to reduce air pollution is like smoking cigarettes to lose weight.
Meanwhile, China — the world’s second-largest energy consumer — announced Friday that it would complete the construction of 28 nuclear reactors by 2020.
So, is California’s mistrust of nuclear energy well-founded? Or is the rest of the world nuts?

MARCH 15, 2010
The combination is nothing less than a death sentence.
During that time there was a fivefold increase in flu deaths in which the child also had a staph infection, and most of those staph infections were MRSA.
In many cases, flu deaths came quickly. “Influenza was often rapidly fatal with almost half of children dying within 72 hours of the onset of symptoms and 75% dying within seven days; almost half died at home or in the emergency department,” write Finelli and colleagues.
BEWARE CA Central Valley – MRSA is being spread through the raw sewage being discharged as the valley’s secret water diversion continues without permits, inspections or safety precautions.
In ONE year, MRSA increased 300% in Fresno. Officials reacted by increasing medical benefits for themselves while slamming the door on reports pertaining to what was contributing to the nightmare. More than our water is being taken from us. Massive cover-up at the cost of human lives.

Another warning for Fresno, CA: Our city is dubbed, “The Asthma Capital of CA” where 1 in 6 school children carry inhalers. This is blamed on pollution – no mention of SEWAGE pollution behind the secret replacement of the water system by a group not authorized or licensed.
It has been indicated that mandatory swine flu vaccinations will begin with children who have asthma.
Officials are creating massive public health crises as they withhold and even cover up the truth from the public. To date they have allowed hospitals and doctors to be blamed for the increase in CA-MRSA. For the sake of everyone, the truth needs to be addressed before it is too late.
Back in 1938, widening Olive Ave. was front-page news. CLICK: Olive Ave., Fresno’s Tower Dist.
How to get around widening it again, in order to secretly replace the city’s water system, without the public’s knowledge – it would entail altering of every structure – one by one. Impossible? Not when done right under everyone’s noses.
How about a few fires to remove various structures; reconstruction on top of the new water system?
Just a few off the top of my head within a 2-mile stretch:
1. SW corner of Palm + Olive (60s?)
2. The original Lucky Boy Hamburger on south side prior to relocating to north side of Olive (60/70s?)
3. The bar (Lyn’s 7 Sons) on the NW corner of Olive and Fruit (70s?)
4. First home south of Olive, on Adoline (70s?)
5. Traffic School, Olive, near Fruit burned/rebuilt (70s)
6. Turpins Furniture, Fulton off Olive (70/80s)
7. Jackie’s Costumes, north side of Olive burned, prior to relocating to south side of Olive (70/80s)
8. Dead end at San Pablo + Olive (70/80s)
9. Perkos Restaurant, on the north side of Olive, just south of Wishon (80s.)
10. Tire shop on NW corner of Blackstone + Olive burned and re-built (80/90s)
11. The thrift store on the NE corner of Palm + Olive (80/90s?)
12. The 2 homes across the street (NE corner Olive + Ferger); both lots are now parking for the furniture store
13. NW corner of Safford + Olive burned down prior to the martial arts occupying the building (90s?)
14. The Landmark – formerly Carnation restaurant, SW corner of Broadway + Olive (90s)
15. 2 blks east of tire shop, on south side of Olive, upholstery shop (90s)
16. A & M Carpet, Olive, north of Fruit Ave. – (80s?)
17. Tiny’s Olive Branch, Olive, next to Roeding Park (80s?)
18. The old Herb Bauer’s building, Olive, between Tiny’s & Roeding Park (80s?)
Murders by gun within 1 mile:

Gun shop owner
Still think nothing unusual is taking place? It appears that I am the sole survivor after my family and neighbors were targeted for annihilation in order for the City of Fresno and their fake work crew (run by Wilbert G. Swieso) to take our 3 properties and property next door by fraud in order to carry this out.
With years of poisoning, severing ties, suspected homicides and preparations behind this:
With the street lined with people linked to this operation, to serve as “credible witnesses” that none of this took place, the City of Fresno has the audacity to say that Olive Ave. was NOT widened?!? How do they explain the middle lane that miraculously appeared? They don’t. Instead, parcel maps and aerial views were altered to make it appear that things were always this way. They committed perjury to call me a “liar” about all the above – their own sewer layout verifies exactly what I reported. Including the sewer vent in my back yard going from 2′ to 10′ from the fence/property line!
The risk analyst, who was lying about the cause of repeated sewage back spills told me that all the newly-clamped sewer and water lines were from the previous owner. Hello? My family owned these properties for generations. Look at this mess – who the hell would pay to have their property rebuilt on top of rotten, corroded sewer and water lines as shown here. Who authorized this? Where are the building permits and inspections? It was done portion at a time, the majority during the citywide upgrade in front of these properties, when the heavy equipment remained here for days.
As a matter of interest, clamped lines are sometimes deliberately loosened, covered with cement, as mold consumes the structure. Mold climbs the walls and reaches the roof, making it appear to be a roof problem, which no amount of money can repair. This is how various structures are condemned and removed; no one questions anything. Isn’t it ironic that the City of Fresno would repeatedly remind property owners that they are responsible for the sewer and water lines on their property, as they conspire in something as heinous as this -in some cases, having property insurance agents conspire in more fraud so owner loses everything. Coincidence? Mr. Swieso is a long-time insurance agent / estate planner. Forging, altering legal documents, pitting family members against one another, conspiring with various home health personnel; much more – this man has created some gruesome techniques.
Neighbor to the north of me left dead after repeated exposure of raw sewage discharges as sewer lines were being cut, altered and clamped together; neighbor to the east never seen again after the risk analyst lied to him – property also rebuilt on top of secretly replaced water system without permits or inspections. The Polzin murder, to the west, remains “unsolved” because the City of Fresno will not allow the facts to be exposed. There are others, not mentioned here.
Streets widened; property lines changed; relocation of fire hydrants, storm drains, street lights, utility poles, etc.
BONUS: I heard about this operation for 20 yrs from the ringleader, himself, Wilbert G. Swieso. Of course I did not believe him until he and Public Works were caught in action. Mr. Swieso is a former employee of the City of Fresno, who boasts of 50 yrs behind this nightmare – laughing that the public will never figure it out. OUR WATER IS BEING RE-DIRECTED AKA: “WATER SHORTAGE.” The evidence is beneath the reconstruction, new streets and new sidewalks. Yes, our new sidewalks with all the ADA violations, forcing wheel chair users into the street:
How far has this operation taken place? Look at Mr. Swieso’s business card – a map of CA with the area highlighted. In the meantime, look in your own back yard – those clamped lines are not all from “repairs” or “upgrades.” See how far they go, beneath the structure, and then go to City Hall and see for yourself that there are no permits or inspections for the major reconstruction.
Yet ANOTHER article regarding Fresno’s problem with DBCP, a pesticide that was banned in 1977. More money being poured into so-called “research.”
CLICK: Valley cities divert cleanup funds 6/20/09
Fresno is known as the “asthma capital of the valley.” Where 1 in 6 school children now carry inhalers. Where raw sewage is being discharged behind secret replacement of the city water system without permits, inspections, safety precautions. Where the pesticide DBCP continues to escalate. Where money continues being poured into so-called “investigations” as to what could be causing these problems.
First of all, what are the unknown pesticides being used for the eradication of sewer roaches, sewer rats and mosquito infestations? DBCP was banned in 1977. It has a short life span yet continues to escalate in Fresno. I can’t help but suspect that this is what I saw in WGS’s storage facilities ~ gallons upon gallons of chemicals. At the time I did not question him, because I was totally unaware of his “secret sideline.” For now, some information regarding DBCP in Fresno, CA.
RAW SEWAGE IS SEEPING INTO THE GROUNDWATER. OUR TAP WATER HAS BECOME SO FOUL AND NASTY DUE TO NITRATES (HUMAN WASTE AND PESTICIDES) THAT PREGNANT WOMEN, BABIES AND PEOPLE WITH COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEMS ARE ADVISED NOT TO DRINK IT. CLICK BELOW TO LEARN MORE ABOUT FRESNO’S TAP WATER.
SOME OF MY BLOGS RE: POLLUTION, ASTHMA, RESPIRATORY. (First one has several good links.)
REPORTING THIS HAS NOT RESULTED IN ANY HELP OR ANSWERS. MOST OF MY CORRESPONDENCE IS ON ANOTHER COMPUTER ~ HERE ARE EARLIER RESPONSES.
The last one refers to the risk analyst who lied about the cause of sewage back spills prior to the horrors described on my page. CLICK: Marla I am prohibited from discussing ANY of this with ANYONE at the City of Fresno other than the senior risk analyst who committed perjury to call me a “liar” about what I reported. (3 yrs) He has since refused to even acknowledge me as the City is currently issuing death threats and sexual harassment against me for my ongoing attempts to seek help. Violation of human and civil rights? No help with that either.

You may have heard of toxic mold and sick building syndrome. Could your home also make you sick?
“Living in a home that is polluted with mold can cause all sorts of respiratory problems,” Neil Schachter, M.D., tells Ivanhoe. That’s a great concern to homeowner Scott Lerman, who has a 4-year-old child.
“We want to make sure that our house is as healthy as it can be so that my son can be as healthy as he can be,” says Lerman, who agreed to let Dr. Schachter, a lung specialist from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, inspect his home.
During the inspection, Dr. Schachter found water damage was causing mold to grow in Lerman’s shower. He advises the Lermans and anyone with a similar problem to clean moldy showers with chlorinated wipes and avoid spraying any chemicals that might irritate the lungs.
Because dust can also cause respiratory problems like allergies and asthma, Dr. Schachter recommends putting clean area rugs over dusty carpets and getting rid of dust ruffles. He also says not to store items beneath the bed and to be aware that clutter stored in the basement can collect dust. Pollutants can also come from outside, so to keep them out, Dr. Schachter suggests installing a window filter.
“You assume your house is healthy until you get someone to point these things out,” says Lerman, who is now committed to eliminating more than just dust in an effort to keep his family healthy.

You cannot turn a city inside out as done to Fresno, CA without major repercussions. Secretly altering the city’s sewer/water system without permits, inspections, or safety precautions has created massive health problems. SEWAGE POLLUTION is deadly. Asthma, respiratory, illness, infections, amputations, death.
Structures rebuilt without permits or inspections – massive building, environmental, safety and health code violations. Look at the clamped sewer/water lines on each property – no record for it because it is tied into the city’s secret operation. Mold, termites, leaks, illness, ongoing repairs. I urge families with asthma and lung disease to purchase mold-testing kits.
The Natural Resources Defense Council web site states that not only do old pipes break, they can allow bacteria and other contaminants into the water supply, making people sick, they can leach contaminants and breed bacteria in drinking water.
Look what was done to my family’s properties without our knowledge or consent – sewer and water lines not only altered but replaced with corroded trash – can you imagine the bacteria that comes from these nasty pipes. How long will they last before breaking / leaking. This is what Public Works has done to us while reminding unsuspecting property owners that they are responsible to maintain such a nightmare.
A reminder that laws, rules, codes, guidelines pertaining to the altering or sewer lines were put into effect for a reason – the safety of ALL of us. Only licensed, experienced and competent contractors are allowed to handle such a job, following strict rules and regulations. Prior to any work, licenses and permits are required to ensure health and safety regulations are met. Permits are not issued until the applicant has filed a layout plan showing the location of existing service connection, house location and route of sewer service, and said layout has been approved by the Superintendent. Contractors are required to have a bond. Compliance issues must be met. Initial and final inspections are necessary. Public safety is of great concern when altering sewer lines and must follow OSHA guidelines as well as abide by the CA Health and Safety Code. Unfortunately, the City / County of Fresno do not feel they are obligated to follow such rules and guidelines – not even discussing any of this with the property owner! They even have a fake work crew to help carry this out – a group that is not even authorized or licensed for such alterations.
Below is a copy of the sewer layout, which verifies what they did to our properties. After suspected homicide of my family members, poisoning and attempted murder of me in order to pull this off, the City called me a “liar” and filed a Restraining Order against me. My neighbors cannot argue or testify about what took place – some are dead; other/s never seen again after being lied to by the risk analyst – we were all set up. Forged/fraudulent legal documents that follow this barbaric operation are being covered up – reporting that is considered a crime as well.
