This looks like a wonderful place for children, but is it safe? The original caption on this San Francisco Chronicle photo reads: “The Boys and Girls Club is closed until school starts next week on Treasure Island, Calif., on Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012. The health department alleged a Navy contractor might have inadvertently exposed children to radioactive dust at the Boys and Girls Club and at a child development center on the island.” – Photo: Liz Hafalia, San Francisco Chronicle

Doesn’t the Navy know the Boys and Girls Club left toxic Treasure Island?

July 18, 2014

The Girls and Boys Club departure is sobering for island parents.

Site 12, Treasure Island’s toxic bullets: Someone’s about to get hit!

April 9, 2014

Think of Treasure Island as an iridescent green glowing ghost ship whose prow divides the blue waves as it navigates San Francisco Bay waters gliding northwest under the Golden Gate Bridge. On the tidy front lawn of your market rate or low income Site 12 rental brought to you courtesy of The John Stewart Co., it is as if you are standing at the bow of the radioactive vessel as it carries its toxic contents ever forward into a stunning red-gold sunset.
