I would like to know why there are even any negotiations going on. Mr. Tielen, apparently is not going to change how he conducts his business. It upsets me to know that people can do as they please without paying consequences. Oh yeah, that is the way of things today.....almost forgot!!

does anyone know why the ban was lifted in the first place?

environmental LAWS are just like any other laws - they are there for the protection of the environment. obviously he isn't going to change his operation - so it is up to the judicial system to make sure he doesn't break those laws AGAIN - and the only way is to ban him.

Understanding farmers work hard and feed this country, however, there should never be "negotiations" when the further polluting of this State occurs. Indiana has let polluters slide for years...it's time to STOP doing that. If farmers, who by the way, do make substantial money, can not incorporate methods or equipment into their budgets to counter pollution, then they should be fined, stiffly, and forced to cease operation until they meet standards.
This particular farmer, whom has, apparently, been thumbing his nose at those standards and the State, should be made an example of.
Very sad what the "good ole boy" political system in Indiana has allowed to happen here with regard to polluting our land and waterways.

Does the deal include dumping hog waste into nearby rivers??? Probably. If not, they do anyway or flowover does like most hog farms in the US. Yummy yummy yummy, hog feces in the water in my tummy. Adds flavor and vital bacteria that aids digestion and conveniently helps you get sick at no extra cost to you. But I do like bacon. That's pretty good, so I guess its a win-win for all.

Hmmmm! I wonder if some future judge will levy equivalent sanctions against the City of Indianapolis because of its manure spills into White River? No more building permits for Taco Bells? My God, no more breeding in Indianapolis? Will that include Speedway, Lawrence, Beech Grove, and Southport?
At least this farmer runs a profit making industry, unlike the debt producing sinkhole called Indianapolis.
C'mon folks, what about equality under the law?!!

Seems he could sell the manure to fertilizer companies and both would profit. But in reality, if you knew what all was in your food, you'd never eat again. According to FDA, a certian percentage is allowed in canned food for rat hair, bugs, etc.

This guy sounds like some arrogant, narrow minded, uneducated, stubborn hillbilly that doesn't care about anyone but himself. Why the state is playing softball with him is beyond my comprehension. Someone needs to kick Jacobus in the rear and get him to act in a responsible manner or take away his hog operation.

Make yourself feel good in your approved conservative Republican way.

Take a big drink of polluted water!

Take a deep breath of of polluted, poisonous air!

Break whatever laws you feel like breaking just like you were George W. Bush!

Try learning how to spell before inflicting any more of your silliness on people who are still living.

Please stop eating the food they produce for a cuple of years. If you hate farmers so much stop supporting them by buying their food. In fact I think you should fast for 5 years in protest., Personally...I like Bacon.

Without environmental laws, please would intentionally dump into public streams and allow their waste to seep into public groundwater - which, as we have discovered over a course of time, causes diseases that kill.
