     COASTAL BEND SIERRA CLUB MEETING MINUTES  November 2013

 

On Tuesday, November 5, the Coastal Bend Sierra Club (CBSC) met from 11:30 am until 1:05 pm in the Retama Room of the Corpus Christi Public Library at 805 Comanche St.  Chairperson Lois Huff opened the meeting and reminded members that the October minutes are posted on the CBSC website. Lois then asked secretary Venice Scheurich to read the treasurer’s report, which was received by e-mail from Treasurer Teresa Carrillo.  The report indicated that the current checking account balance is $937.50.  October expenses for the USPS indicia and postcard printing totaled $295.29, and the three CD’s have a current value of $8,231.44.  Lois mentioned that the recent postcard mail-out to all members resulted in several additional members supplying their e-mail addresses for CBSC records.

 

Lois then asked members for reports/comments on the following subjects:  uranium, fracking, water, desalination, turtles, sustainability, industry/long term health, port, outings/walks, and media.  Several members who regularly follow some of these topics were not present to report, but members present did discuss concerns and developments in water, hydraulic fracturing (fracking), and desalination.  Jack Pope mentioned that the Port of Corpus Christi had recently hosted a conference on fracking.   Several members of CBSC plan to attend a meeting in San Antonio on Sunday, November 10, where efforts are being made to form a statewide coalition of ranchers, environmentalists, industrial workers, and other concerned citizens who are interested in working toward responsible and efficient use of water in oil/gas production.

 

Hal Suter, Chairperson of the Lone Star Sierra Chapter, reported that the Lone Star Executive Committee (ExCom) will meet in Austin on Saturday, November 9, and that the Lone Star Chapter’s Legislative Awards Celebration will be on Thursday, November 7, in Austin. 

 

In additional matters, Lois Huff announced that CBSC has always given some financial support to the Coastal Bend Bays Foundation’s annual awards celebration and the Earth Days/Bay Days event in April each year.  She is asking members to make suggestions for fundraisers which will enable us to continue to support these events and to pay for postal costs of regularly communicating with members.  Also, Lois asked Jack Pope to head the nominations committee.  Election of officers is slated for December.
