...haven't been able to find a solution to save Mount Manresa as a park," said Barbara Sanchez, the secretary of the Committee to Save Mount Manresa. "Every day, I still hope that something happens and we are able to save Mount Manresa. I'm saddened that something that has had such a long history and has touched so many people is just going to be carelessly destroyed."
"Many of the overall patterns are the same in this map as in previous maps," says Petersen. "There are large uncertainties in seismic hazards in the easterneastern United States.

"It is tragic when we think about how preventable these types of accidents are. A restraint, safety net or even a guardrail can go a long way when it comes to saving the lives of construction workers."
