While I am grateful that your reporter Mack Reed felt the worthiness of doing a Nov. 10 article on the Rocketdyne Cleanup Coalition, I feel that some clarification is needed. First, I feel that a stronger correlation must be made between what our detractors call our highly critical stance and the fact that even during the cleanup process Rocketdyne has incurred hefty fines for violations regarding contamination. Therefore, we feel that to be vigilant to assure an honest, efficient cleanup, we are most justified in constantly voicing criticisms.

Iam writing to express my disappointment and anger over your coverage of the Rocketdyne Cleanup Coalition news conference. It appears as if you are trying to discredit the coalition and are part of the corporate stranglehold that Rockwell has on us. Specifically: "A convoy of cars then rolled through Santa Susana's gates carrying more than a dozen reporters and photographers, as well as some protesters who tagged along." Pat Coulter was very gracious about including us even though I asked if we could join them--obviously, your corporate ear missed that.

A controversial report on the health of Rocketdyne workers due out next month has been postponed until April so UCLA scientists can do more research, an environmental activist group said Thursday. The Rocketdyne Cleanup Coalition has been pressing for UCLA to release the final draft of the long-awaited report by the original Dec. 6 deadline, said Daniel Hirsch, the group's chief spokesman. But the California Department of Health Services, which is overseeing the report, last week granted the researchers permission to spend more time studying the effects of radiation research on the rate of cancer cases of 5,000 past and present Rocketdyne employees, Hirsch said.

The Times coverage of the Rocketdyne Cleanup Coalition press conference plus subsequent Rocketdyne tour and demonstration of the contaminated building No. 24 failed to present much of the message the coalition tried to convey: Not decommissioning the entire Santa Susana Field Lab facility at this time means that our children or our children's children will have to do it. There will never be a time in the foreseeable future when it will be acceptable to...

Under pressure from environmental activists, federal inspectors have agreed to oversee cleanup of radiation at Rocketdyne's controversial Santa Susana Field Laboratory. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has agreed to pleas from the Rocketdyne Cleanup Coalition, a group of lab neighbors and activists who demanded the EPA double-check cleanup and testing by Rocketdyne and the Department of Energy.

Opponents of nuclear projects at Rockwell International's Santa Susana Field Laboratory on Thursday night implored federal officials to deny the aerospace firm's request for renewal of its radioactive materials license and called on Rockwell "to clean up and clear out" the nuclear part of its business.

Anxious to launch a health study of neighborhoods surrounding Rocketdyne's Santa Susana field lab, activists have called a community meeting Wednesday night for residents to tell their concerns to state legislators and local officials. The Rocketdyne Cleanup Coalition hopes to press the state Legislature for action and money to study whether decades of nuclear and rocket research at the 2,668-acre open-air field lab caused cancer or property damage in the Simi and San Fernando valleys.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Ed Edelman on Thursday named Don Wallace, an environmentalist who ran against Supervisor Mike Antonovich in 1988, as field deputy for the west San Fernando Valley. Edelman acquired the West Valley from Antonovich's 5th District as part of a court-ordered redistricting plan. Wallace, 50, a resident of Calabasas, will quit his job as a captain with the Los Angeles City Fire Department, where he has worked for 26 years.
