YOU'VE STARTED SOMETHING NOW THAT YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO FINISH>THE HEAT IS COMING ON SOON!!
To Jessie: I am Maria's sister. My response to you is that your post sounds very much like some sort of threat. My advice to you would be to be very careful about what you say & do. If you or anybody else has a problem with my sister's concerns & actions, you should all be bright about it. Oppose her opinion by writing letters to the paper, or whatever outlet you'd like to use. However, don't ever threaten her or anybody.
To the residents of Whitmire: My sister has been outspoken because nobody else was willing to do so. Her concern is for the whole town of Whitmire, especially the children. It amazes me that people don't want to know what is making their children sick. Educate yourself a little bit. You can't always believe what "the powers that be" tell you. The gallbladder problems may be the tip of the iceberg. Nobody knows what health problems may arise in the years to come. Having lost many family members who lived in Whitmire, to cancer, I always believed that there was some kind of environmental factor that contributed to their illnesses. I may live many miles away, but I stand behind my sister 100%. So until you can prove that there was no wrongdoing on the part of any of the officials, companies, etc., perhaps those of you that oppose her views, should keep your ignorant, threatening remarks to yourself. If you think that my sister is wrong in her belief that the people of Whitmire are being harmed & the people behind it aren't taking responsibility for it, then prove her wrong. If you can't, then leave her alone.
