Jerry Reynolds writes…Seen this? This from Kristin Monday who started the petition “stop Jet Fuel Dumping! Save the Sedona Sanctuary”
It has been a long hard year, with many more jet fuel dumps and jet fuel dispersion over my roof and others’ homes in Sedona.
Good news: After calling the FAA in Los Angeles in June, they sent the FBI to my home that same day. I spent 2.5 hours talking to the FBI about the airport, 36 hours later the Sedona airport manager left his position. The airport manager had a contract worth $500,000 that was renewed in January, 2012 for five more years.
Photos taken by pilots of EPA violations were also turned in to me, showing the old pavement saturated with oil and gas was used as landfill instead of being disposed of according to EPA regulations. This is a separate issue for the EPA to deal with.
I have retained the services of Howard Shanker to file suit against the county and airport for noise nuisance, jet fuel and lead poisoning. This suit is open for all in Sedona to sign up under, whether it is for noise only or noise and health issues, including lead poisoning. A national legal team is assembling to file a suit on behalf of everyone being affected.
Common symptoms of jet fuel exposure are high blood pressure, racing heart/elevated pulse, stroke, heart attacks, liver pain, liver spasms, liver pain, aching joints, muscle spasms, cancer, motor coordination problems, Fibromyalgia, etc.. These problems subside when exposure lessens or ceases, such as a vacation away from Sedona and during low air traffic periods.
You can view a copy of my blood test on the front page of www.closetheairport.com This is in comparison to those who have occupational exposure.
Local pilots are working to discredit me, claiming I talk about chemtrails which is untrue and unrelated to our localized problem here. They also claim, “that I am lying about noise and pollution and that my website is extremist.” They always make sure to never mention the extremely high levels of jet fuel in my blood, as blood tests do not lie. It is unfortunate for the airport supporters that I knew enough to get a test for jet fuel, and where to go get this test and had the money to afford said tests.
Before the Sedona Airport was expanded there were full page ads taken out in the Sedona Red Rock Newspaper, warning that people would get poisoned by benzene and other jet fuel petro chemicals if the runway was expanded and jets could land here. Those ads and the petition were ignored, the Sedona Community Master Plan was thwarted and now people have died. Life is not sustainable with that level of jet fuel in one’s blood. The liver and biliary tract system take the hit as they attempt to remove the jet fuel, the jet fuel is filtered into by the liver and goes through the biliary tract. The high level of toxins becomes progressive and accumulative until the organ systems fail and DNA is damaged and cancer sets in.
The Sedona Airport is in violation of the federal Clean Air Act. The Sedona Airport operates off the backs of everyone who lives here, costing us lost health, medical bills and death. Who is paying for the disease and suffering of those living here? A jet fuel test costs $750 dollars. I have paid for two so far. Lead tests are hundreds of dollars each, treatment is thousands of dollars and limited. Lead poisoning causes permanent brain damage, children suffer the most. My neighbors boys are both being chelated at age 4 and 8, so am I and other neighbors. I did not have lead poisoning for three years when I moved into my home.
The County should pay for all of us to be tested and treated. People on both ends of the runway are reporting smelling jet fuel in their yards when jets fly over head to land at the Sedona Airport. This is in addition to the noise violations for a redundant airport that serves no valid use expect as recreation. A dozen people flying in to Sedona to eat a $9.00 breakfast at 6 am on Saturday morning destroys the life of those underneath them trying to sleep! Decibel levels in our homes are as high as 200 from a single airplane and then we have days that the planes fly by every few minutes all day long! Sedona has 4 million visitors and a fractional of a percent use the airport to get here and they do not stay at the airport lodge.
Sedona is an amazing town but it is being destroyed by one user group; this has to end! Everyone had a right to breath clean safe air, have peaceful enjoyment of their home and a quiet forest to walk in. Hang gliders are banned from flying over Wilderness but not helicopters and airplanes in Sedona Wilderness!
Any Sedonan who dislikes hearing aircraft or helicopter noise athome, in the national forest or in Wilderness, or any Sedonan who has lead poisoning or has had jet fuel symptoms, or smells fuel or exhaust on their property can be included in the lawsuit at no cost.
The number to call to add your name to the lawsuit is 928-202-3612.
