Re: “Cancer in Paradise

I am 60 yrs old and as a child remember my father talking about Avon lake. My parents decided to build their own home, so my mother set out to find the land. My dad tbought she was looking in Medina and Strongsville, but one night at dinner, she excitedly told him about a new development going up in Avon lake. My father said no to the the Avon lake development because he knew hazardous waste had been buried all over, in farmers fields. This happened in the fiftys and was a secret. The farmers were paid money and now this land was contaminated. I heard this story in the late sixtys. My mother stayed away from Avon lake after that.
