The demonstration is planned for 9-11 a.m. in front of the .

Participants were invited to meet to carpool or caravan at 8 a.m. at the on Rancho California Road at Jefferson Avenue.

"Join us… to say that we will not tolerate the two-faced actions of Supervisor Tavaglione when he 'flip-flopped' to vote with Benoit and Ashley to certify the same flawed, incomplete EIR that was used to deny the quarry project originally," said Jerri Arganda, a member of SOS-Hills, in an emailed announcement.

Opponents of Liberty Quarry were shocked and angered when the voted to certify an EIR, or environmental impact report, that acted as the foundation for the quarry plan.

The board then voted to confirm , but certifying the document all but assures the applicant, Granite Construction, will have its project approved if it reapplies, critics said.

Supervisors voted 3-2 against the quarry plan, but one of those who voted to reject it, John Tavaglione, voted yes to certifying the EIR.

Elsinore Resident is a good example of how a normal person can be driven mad by living close proximity to a noisy quarry. It could be the last straw for some. Supervisors should be aware of those driven past the point of civility. - - - Familiar with John and Ken's Radio show and their heads on a post slant?

Mr Stark, your comment is quite amusing because it was the Clinton administration exerting undue (and possibly illegal) influence on the loan industry which was largely the cause of the housing crisis. If you want a scapegoat, his name is Bill.

It's interesting how so many are sure the supervisor is "on the take". Not one person has offered any tangible proof of this. His actions surely are inconsistent with the best interests of the public, but we don't know what actually motivated him to make the choice he made. I would like to hear what explanation he has to offer. Either way it is clear he should not continue to represent the people of our county.
