Not one statement concerning how this affects the YMCA directly across the street from the school which also has plenty of children attending year-round and in summer camp.

what we have is a town without pity- in denial because of greed- what else? "they" the parents seen to be more worried about money than their kids health! we have a task force that is fos, a old lawyer that clained he filed for re assesments of all propertys under the plume.the lawyer "claims he cant get the assesor" or- cant get a answer? someone is not telling the truth - one cannot assess a property under a known toxic plume. the asessment is zero! one would assume! we have a group of new businesses in town that have "not been told about the plume" and why not? greed again ? we also have a town full of parents who are in denial with full knowledge of all, who still send their children to buildings under a toxic plume. i would assume their jobs are more important than their innocent childrens is my opinion all parents shoud be sued by a child advocate or agency for knowingly letting this all go on! who speaks for the children ? it is my opinion that bay shore- brightwaters will go down as a "national disgrace" once all the facts come out! what of all the toxins going into the bay for 100 years? can that be good? where is the outrage -- where are the parents?
oh yes-- all the wothless politicos know all thats happening.pumping air down a hole does nothing- do your homework.shame on most of you, its all our families.

Hey, has anyone ever looked into these so called "activists"? This plant issue has been going on for almost 100 years. Looks like someone wants to get PAID OFF. Seems like there has been testing going on, and if there was any REAL health issues, the DEC would have shut them down ASAP
