Let's get the arboretum land deal settled. Everyone's making a big fuss over nothing. If you look back years ago that end of town had fuel tanks in the ground all over. Also they weren't regulated like they are nowadays. Saying nothing would grow there is far from the truth. As we all know, that end of town surely has fuel contamination all beneath it. So stop singling out the issue and get it over with. Look at the old Texaco lot across from the jail, the old Gulf station lot, and the old Agway, grass and trees are growing fine.

Unless I missed something in my 10th grade environmental science class, I'm pretty sure that grass cover is not a very accurate measure of subterranean toxins. Perhaps Dr. 2:47 could elaborate on his analysis? Maybe I'm wrong. "Out of sight, out of mind" is not a very responsible approach to community stewardship or the legacy we are leaving our children and grandchildren.

I thought there was a water conservation / restriction practice in effect due to the lack of rain .. Why is the boy in the picture watering the lawn? Just like filling a pool or washing a car.

What really burns my butt about all of this is that I actually contacted the person who taped the meeting attended by Uni-Tec and the rep. from DEP. The government man stood up in front of everyone and stated he as been working with DEP for 20 some years. Prior to that he was the Project Manager for the Operations Bldg. being constructed by Adelphia. He told explained that LaBella Engineers were contracted to deal with the contamination found at the time. He also stated that Rigas cleaned up everything in and around the area and how many truck loads of contaminated soil was removed from the premises. He also confirmed that some 13 test wells were drilled and monitored. Now, as an employee of DEP he is stated that 2 of the wells still "may be contaminated. Tell me Mr. DEP man, as Project Manager for the Operations Building, YOU would have had access to Labella's findings. Why did you let the project continue? It almost seems like you are talking out of both sides of your mouth. Don't blame a "possible" snafu on LaBella or the Rigas' - blame yourself! I smell something funny here. And to think, the same people were in attendance who threatened the neighboring property owners and just sat there with a smug look on their faces.
