Since moving to the 4th district in 1998 my wife and I have witnessed many big changes in our neighborhood. More big changes loom over us and I will be writing about them here.
I know I'm hard on Grede Liberty foundry pollution, so I'll begin with something new. Have you noticed we have more blue jays this year. So many died from the West Nile disease you know just like the crows did. The cashiers at Pick 'n Save must wonder why I buy large bags of bulk peanuts. They are for the birds of course.
We've been lucky to see a momma deer and her 2 fawns over in the vacant lot next door. You know the one I've written about it before. Yeah you do. It's the vacant lot owned by David Israel. Yes the contaminated Brownfield East of Sentry right next to Walgreens. Yep the one West of where Derse is going to build that 4 story apartment complex. You might not remember it's contaminated with a little Arsenic, and Chlorinated Solvent PCE, TCE, DCE, and VC. About 1500 tons of contaminated soil and ground water.
