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?
