Residents Say Homes Are Toxic, Golf Cart DUI, Quit Smoking Too Much Pot
From Lake Elsinore-Wildomar Patch:

Some Wildomar residents are not giving up their claims that something is gravely amiss in the city's Autumnwood neighborhood.

A short video clip featuring former Autumnwood residents tells their side of the story (watch attached). In the video, the residents say their homes have made them sick, and they want the state's Department of Toxic Substances Control to continue investigating the claims.

After testing soil, soil gas and groundwater samples from specific locations within the allegedly toxic Autumnwood housing tract, officials with the DTSC announced in December preliminary findings that showed the neighborhood is safe.

Xonia Villanueva, who is featured in the video, disputed those findings, claiming they were "manipulated." She is calling on the public to contact Gov. Jerry Brown, asking him to "clean house at the DTSC."
