Reader: The Ohio EPA is a Serial Killer

I just finished reading this article ["Badlands," August 1]. I grew up in Painesville Township and remember the horrific smell when we would drive down Fairport Nursery Road. The mere fact we, once again, cannot count on a government agency to keep Americans safe is appalling. For the EPA to intentionally ignore hazardous chemicals dumped into the ground and the lake water makes the EPA nothing more than a serial killer. Avon Lake has a plant the EPA has stated is safe. However, there are small children developing the most rare types of brain cancer ["Cancer in Paradise," June 22, 2005]. One child, a five year old, died this summer. Her neighbor, another small child, also has this same disease. Something must be done. Connie Bay Village
