Bill A. Roderick, former Inspector General of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency came to Hiker Town in Neenach last week while hiking a section of the Pacific Crest Trail. Oso Town Council Vice President Gerard Conroy (right) took him to see the Antelope Valley Solar Ranch One facility, and Richard Skaggs snapped this Enterprise on the Road photo of the two of them with their local newspaper.
This week, Oso Town Council President Richard Skaggs and Vice President Gerard Conroy welcomed the Inspector General of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, retired) to Hiker Town. Bill A. Roderick, an avid hiker, spent several days enjoying the Pacific Crest Trail. We are pleased Bill is taking a personal interest in consulting in protecting and maintaining our treasured communities. We look forward to Bill’s next visit. —By Gerard Conroy
