Dear Ryan, and Chairman Smith,

As a newcomer to Rainbow, I have to say that I am surprised that the Pala Tribe, and the Racetrack management, have not done a single thing to try to mitigate the noise pollution coming from the track.

I would think that the Tribe would not be interested in having such a vocal part of the San Diego and Riverside community angered by the actions of your land use partners.  

It’s my understanding that Ryan, you have specifically promised that you would work with the community to effect mitigations.  Promises are legal obligations.   Please tell us, directly, WHAT you are going to do, and WHEN?

Ryan, the community has in good faith kept its promises to you to inform you of the noise problems.   Perhaps your lack of response should put this matter on the shoulders of the Tribe, who do seem to be concerned about their impression as a good neighbor to the Community.  

Chairman Smith, are you going to continue to allow your renter to ignore the problems that his track is creating for the community?  Is the revenue for land use as a raceway that valuable that you are willing to have the deserved reputation of ignoring your neighbors and how you affect them with your businesses?

I think that the residents of Rainbow deserve concrete answers about what you are going to do about this problem, and they have deserved them for many months.  I suggest that we as 3 interested parties convene an Advisory Council, composed of the Tribal government, rainbow residents, and Ryan and his staff, and come up with some workable ways that you can mitigate the way that your activities affect the rest of us.  The residents can have a vote of whom to put on the committee within days.  I would imagine that you could have a Committee up and running in a week.  Since we are getting close to your “busy season” I think that such an effort is timely.

If you continue to ignore this problem, I for one will encourage my neighbors to take a more active role in addressing this problem.

Kindest Regards,

Lisa Wrench



Hello everyone,

About 4 weeks ago, an email was sent out from “Return Our Peace” to communicate a new way to report the ongoing noise from Pala Raceway.  While the noise has been fairly loud over the past few weeks, the communication to Pala and Ryan Ouellette, the raceway owner, has been light. 

We are hoping to bring some action to this situation as it has been a year now with no resolution.  Whenever the noise impacts you, please take a few minutes to email the people responsible (emails below) and copy the community email at palaracewaynoise@gmail.com.  

Please do not copy other individuals in the community as the object is to barrage Pala but not our neighbors.  Each month, our emails will be summarized and a report without names will be distributed back to the community, Feinstein, the county, etc. to raise awareness about this problem.

If you would like to send an email but wish to remain anonymous, please feel free to send your emails to palaracewaynoise@gmail.com with the subject “SEND TO PALA” so that it is not confused with other emails.  We will be happy to remove your email address and send the email along for you.

Thanks very much for your help.

Hope all is well,

TEMECULA: Area environmental groups saluting James Cameron

Groups: Movie's plot parallels the years-long fight against Liberty Quarry project
By AARON CLAVERIE - aclaverie@californian.com | Posted: March 3, 2010 6:53 pm

Local environmentalists who have been inspired by one of the subplots in the movie "Avatar" are giving its director, James Cameron, an award.
The coalition of "green" organizations bestowing the honor includes the Santa Margarita Group of the Sierra Club, the Endangered Habitats League and Save Our Southwest Hills, a group of area residents who have focused their energies of late to opposing Granite Construction's Liberty Quarry project.
If Cameron shows up to collect his prize ---- the inaugural "Temecula Environmental Award for Outstanding Social Responsibility in Media" ---- it will be handed out in September during the annual Temecula Valley International Film & Music Festival.
"The plight of the Na'vi people in (Cameron's) film very closely mirrors the environmental and social struggle the residents of Temecula and surrounding communities are facing, as well as the potential destruction of sacred lands of The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians," said Kathleen Hamilton of SOS Hills on Wednesday, explaining why Cameron was selected for the honor.
In "Avatar," which is up for a "Best Picture" Oscar, a mining company from Earth visits a planet called Pandora in search of a valuable mineral.
To get at a large deposit of the mineral, the company destroys a tree considered sacred by the planet's native inhabitants, setting the stage for an epic battle that pits the natives, the Na'vi, against the company's mercenary soldier force.
The Na'vi end up winning the battle and the company's executives and the soldiers who survived the battle are sent back to Earth.
"We are willing to protect our quality of life, and we are willing to fight for it, as they (the Na'vi) did," Hamilton said.
Granite has been working for years to receive approval to dig a large quarry on county land near Temecula's southwestern border.
The project has been criticized by both the Pechanga tribe and environmentalists who are concerned about how it would affect the migration patterns of animals, the air quality in the area and water quality in the Santa Margarita River watershed.
When Barbara Wilder, another SOS Hills member, saw the movie, she said she immediately thought of the Liberty Quarry controversy.
"It was so obvious that it was about Granite and Pechanga," she said.
Granite Construction spokeswoman Karie Reuther declined an opportunity to comment.
Weighing in on the possibility of Cameron actually showing up to accept the award, Wilder said a SOS Hills member has talked to representatives at 20th Century Fox, the studio that released "Avatar." And she was encouraged.
"He's really interested in helping (environmental) organizations with what needs to be done," she said.
In interviews with multiple media outlets, Cameron has said he purposely stressed the environmental message in "Avatar," despite the concerns of some studio executives who felt there was too much "tree-hugging."
A message left Wednesday with Cameron's assistant at Lightstorm Entertainment Inc., Cameron's production company, was not returned.
Jim Mitchell, chairman of the local Sierra Club group, said it would be a real treat if Cameron's schedule allowed him to attend the city's film festival in September.
"But we would love to have him come out any old time," he said.
Asked if the award would become an annual fixture of the festival, Mitchell said, "I think so. It's something that we feel ---- the giving of an award for recognition for a job well done ---- is an important part of what we should be doing."
