Well over one hundred attendees filled the Academy Room at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, May 8, for PSR-LA’s conference, “L.A.’s Ten Best Untold News Stories; The Environmental and National Security Stories You Haven’t Heard About.”


Three camera crews, assorted journalists, attorneys, physicians and members of the public were rewarded with well told heretofore unheard news stories.

Rochelle Becker gave vivid accounts of lax security at California’s nuclear power plants.


Greg Palast, the great investigative journalist, revealed the State of Florida will soon strike some 45,000 names

(mostly African-American) from the voting rolls – just as Katherine Harris did during the 2000 Presidential election.


Former Assistant Secretary of Defense Philip Coyle described the soon deployment of new Star Wars missiles here in Southern California.


And Renee Sharp provided a tremendous briefing on how the rocket fuel contaminant, perchlorate, has comes to permeate California’s drinking water.
