How the US Navy exposed a Treasure Island mother and daughter to radiation levels higher than humans can tolerate

March 31, 2017

My name is Felita Sample. My mysterious illnesses and my daughter LaKrista’s strange afflictions developed after we moved from San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood to Treasure Island.

Treasure Island whistleblower Mitchell Herrington faced retaliation from power broker consortium

Better job standards for Treasure Island

July 20, 2012

Over the last several months, a conversation has been underway about job standards for maintenance workers at Treasure Island.
