Below is a list of dates that J was at the Precinct Park field when work was being done at the Edward Furlong property. As many of the pictures that I have enclosed show, the small shed! building took on a new life over the few short months of my observations. while working at the field on our own permitted project.

On September 13, 2008

A work crew was in place and began work before my arrival at 10:30 AM. Pat Haley of

Haley Construction was on site to do some minor excavation for the new storage facility removal of some old light poles, and old fencing. Conerete blocks and frame work for the new storage facility were put in place.

During the hours that I was there I heard hanunering, sawing and construction type tools being used.

On October 4, 2008 This was an advertised community work day. I did not remember hearing any work being done on this day.

On October 18,2008 I arrived for the second weekend of our advertised work weekend. I arrived mid

afternoon, after working the recreation department's flag football games. When I arrived

to begin the barbecue for the volunteers, I was approached by a man from one of the

rental properties; he stated that he would be working for Mr. Furlong through the winter

and inquired about the gravel that I had delivered for the entrance to the ball field. Before his approaching me and after his leaving, I heard hanunering and sawing.

On November 1,2008 I received a call at home, from the volunteer workers at the field, to advise me that the staking and ribbon that we had placed/replaced for the second time had been removed. I arrived mid morning. The police were called, and during the time of waiting for the police to arrive, I heard hammering and sawing.

On the weekend of November 8, 2008 While at the field placing signage for the winter, I took a picture that shows the building near1y completed, with siding and painting. I believe you can see saw horses in the picture as well. The picture shows the back of the building as completed.' where the earlier picture shows the building with no siding and just a new window and ramp for the tractor.

There are three pictures, one shows the opening of the refurbished building with the ramp and the new window and siding.

One picture will show you the final result of the building from the front with new doors, windows, siding and the new paint job.

During my time at the field this day, work was being done to the inside, lights were on and you could see people moving around working. I could hear bammering.

The information that I have provided is what I can remember to the best of my knowledge.

boundary markers that would define this line. While walking this property line I discovered that the USFSComer #7 pin which should have been behind Mr. Furlong's shed was missing. This pin would define the corner of the

USFS parcel and Mr. Furlong's property as well as the starting point of our back property line. At that time I do not recall seeing any bullding construction taking place on the property. However, I do recall the one blazed tree that was approximately 6" in diameter located behind Mr. Furlong's shed. It appeared that the ground all around the

tree had recently been graded and seeded. This Is what first brought the USFSinto the

Sometime in late June or early July I accompanied the USFS In a walk of the back property line. We spent quite a bit of time behind Mr. Furlong's shed.;1 recall that the building was now being repaired. I remember that much of

the post & beam framework was exposed.

On Wednesday August 13, 2008 I was at the field because the USFS had just set the marker for Comer #7. I took a
