Residents Say Their Town is Toxic
“We had greens, turnip, mustard, but now we're just cut loose from all of it. So now I just quit growing the garden.”
Residents in Port St Joe are complaining that their homes are sinking into the ground, because their neighborhood was built on top of what used to be a dumping site. via WMBB-TV Panama City

I can sympathize with the people of North St. Joe having myself lived in the now infamous two mile corridor of the Fenholloway River ( Florida's most polluted river). Our local hospital reports our number discharge diagnosis is C.O.P.D. and Lung cancer given in testimony via Public Hearing September 2005 in Taylor County. We have a very long history of government supporting industry to the detriment of the public. Unlike St. Joe's mill which has closed it's doors our offender continues to pollute. As our local newspaper editorialized Industry has used the Fenholloway River as a "open sewer ditch for years under state approval." So what happens to those of us most affected?
