Genades wash out on June 19 and the ACOE and OEPA will get to it almost a year later? How about a temporary fix and approve permanent plans later?--Pure bureaucratic incompetence.

The Ravenna Arsenal is the biggest environmental disaster in the area. Everywhere you turn on that property you have a problem be it chemicals, unspent ammunition, asbestos, mercury, etc. The EPA should delare it such and begin a complete cleanup immediately, and I don't mean burn everything down so it polutes the environment down wind more.

Bush A$$ won't do anything. He's a military supporter and defense contractor supporter who says they can do no wrong.

Seems like the more prudent thing would be for them to go dig up the remainin' munitions and dispose of them properly.

The screen seems like such a stop gap measure.

They Should have an open call for all those people that scrap old metal. There is TONS out there.

That brass should be worth a fortune.... Then they wouldnt have to steal bleachers and aluminum siding....

Plus it would get rid of a different problem they wouldnt have to have the old shells hauled off.....

Just give them a crash course in disarming them. Hey whats the fun in life without a little risk….. LOL That brass could make them rich….

Old MAY Fong solving problems One at a time.....
