I have read and reread this article about Woodwind Lakes. I have liveed here for 12 plus years. Most of us go to work, care for our families and take care of our homes. Most of us really dont know what is going on. We dont have health problems, our children aren't sick, ourdogs are itchy, our pools went in fine. We have never heard any convincing issue regarding these allegation. Most of us dont want to comment because you enter a potential hazardous condition of being attacked or sued if you say anything questioning this. Is everyone including the government agencies, the oil companies, the MUD district, most of the people who live here, the courts, and on and on, trying to hide from this? It is not just a matter of money, these houses are our homes. Our investment is in our families and our lives we have chosen to live here. Our heads arent in our butts, our hearts are in our mouths at this insanity going on. It is ruining our lives and our investment in our family and life. There are a lot of poeple in this world that tell you that your are suffering because of your own fault, and that they are just doing what they are doing because you need it and you are too stupid to see the light. Maybe these are the people who are the money mongers and they are quite the greedy ones, and they are the anti-social ones who steal your life breath and then tell you it is your fault that they did it. Many people get notoriety, money, and a grand- stand to make themselves fiinally important. there are very few people in this, lots of people affected and being sued over this, these few are all in their own world and the rest of us are in ours. There may be disclosure issues here to learn from, the rest of this needs some explaining and truth. Also, is it unfair to sue and cause people to be sued when it doesnt cost one to do the sueing and another lots of their money to defend themselves, could that not border on extortion. I dont know where this will end or how, but I do know there is a lot of hanky panky, lies, distortions, money hungry, anxiety ridden, fearful people, and lots of antisocial behavior and money hungry greed all over this. Just some thoughts. I am sure there are many more.

I also live in the community and agree with the above comments. Anyone who has an interest in Woodwind Lakes should read the report from the U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Public Health Service Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry Division of Health Assessment and Consultation Atlanta, Georgia 30333 entitled:
FORMER DELROC OIL REFINERY/WOODWIND LAKES SUBDIVISION HOUSTON, HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS EPA FACILITY ID: TXN000606661

I use to live in a subdivision very very close to that area. I lived there for almost 16 years, from 1982 to 1998. I moved into the modest housing with my two children, and I sold my home and moved when my children were in college and I remarried. Throughout that time I NEVER KNEW what had been there before. What I DID KNOW was that our dog died of cancer, our cat died of cancer, 5 of our neighbors had cancer - 3 of them died. Another neighbor's son developed a strange brain tumor. One of my sons had serious bouts of asthma - so we went rushing off to the ER a lot (his asthma mysteriously vanished when he moved away), and the other one developed a pre-cancerous growth in his neck that required surgery. Three women in the area were diagnosed with Lupus...AND since I left the subdivision I have been diagnosed with THREE DIFFERENT TYPES OF CANCER IN THE PAST 10 years! Since the last diagnosis I started looking around to find what might have left my immune system such a mess, as I have gone through genetic testing with no answers. My question is WHY WAS THIS INVESTIGATION ONLY FOCUSED ON THE SUBDIVISION WITH THE EXPENSIVE HOMES? WHAT ABOUT THOSE LOWER, MODEST INCOME HOMES SURROUNDING THE AREA? AND WHAT ABOUT THOSE LIVING ALONG THE WHITE OAK BAYOU, WHERE ALL OF THIS CRAP DRAINS?
