Munchitude of Legendary Magnitude




By Marc Garman


A team of specialist contractors have been brought in at great expense to The City (so, what else is new?).

Their mission? To control the rampant vegetative insurgency on Mare Island, and terminate with extreme munchiness. They are known as "The Herbivalous Baaaaah-stids"

Ship Breaking Operation Promises Jobs


Image      M.I. Dry Dock Re-use Inches Closer

By Marc Garman


California Dry Dock Solutions and Jay Anast have been hoping to re-open Mare Island Dry Docks 2 and 3 for twelve years now. The need to remediate the decaying Suisun Bay Mothball Fleet would seem to represent an almost endless stream of work.

Tonight's public meeting at the Mare Island Conference Center saw some residents voice concerns over noise and toxic substances, while others shared their enthusiasm over the potential for job creation. Engineer Werner Hoyt assured those present that the modern techniques used in ship breaking today would be far quieter and cleaner than methods employed in the past. Anast made it clear that ship breaking is “heavy industrial” and emphasized his intent to be open and candid regarding the nature of his business.

CDDS will also be instituting a policy of sourcing labor from Vallejo first. They will look outside the area for workers only if they are unable to find them locally. CDDS hopes to be able to employ 100+ workers.
