Hilltopper - Thanks for pointing out the Union influence as well.

However, my point was that these actions often have consequences. There needs to be greater restrictions put on the EPA and their powers must be limited.

Scarecrow: The leather industry in FC was the victim of cheap foreign labor. Mill owners could increase profits by moving operations overseas. If the environment was still unregulated, leather industry workers would be paid a lot less than they were in the heyday. The rest of the world figured out that the leather business isn't rocket science. All it takes is a strong back, willingness to trade your health for a paycheck, and a community that's willing to rape mother nature. Is that what you want for your kids?

Since the nitrogen pollutants are 55% lower and were exageratted by the EPA, I hope they allow chickens in Gloversville and that a chicken ranch is built on the 4-corners, just upwind of the LH editor's office. Then you can get Elmer Fudd down in WV to write an editorial for you about that. Secondly, let's elevate Lois Alt to sainthood for her courage in proving that her (chicken) crap didn't stink.

This is another example of government gone rogue. We should not fear our government and if our best interests as well as our environmental concerns were reasonably represented nobody would mind regulations that would work. Today our government agencies believe that they can mandate anything that they want, even way beyond reasonable and expect us to follow it unquestioned. It is more about overpowering us than helping us in nearly every branch these days as is proven by the recent scandals that are finally coming into the public light!

The EPA is a highly corrupt agency and has become worse under the current rein of terror.

Think back to the 70s when Fulton County flourished with the Leather business. That was before the EPA and OSHA reared their ugly heads killing the industry. The only good thing to come out of all that regulation is the Cayadutta creek is now clean. This is good as it gives all of the unemployed welfare folks a place to fish and swim
