In an editorial posted on SCVNews.com, Santa Clarita Valley resident Darrly Manzer described his encounter with a California landfill. An "awful" smell woke him in the middle of the night, and he decided to investigate. His conclusion: a smell worse than raw sewage was emanating from the landfill at Chiquita Canyon. In the editorial, Manzer worries that the needs of Val Verde residents, a majority of whom are Latino/Hispanic, are being overlooked by the local Latino Chamber of Commerce.
