Daily breaking news and news the liberal media doesn't want you to know, won't report, or just daily news issues.

Americans for many years have had to rely on left leaning biased news reporting from liberal media such as NBC, ABC, and CBS and the New York Times. As most of these outlets struggle to remain on the air and in print, the new media is flourishing and people are hearing both sides of the issues. This forum will provide people with a place to discuss daily news issues of any kind or discuss articles not printed or aired by the liberal news outlets.

As usual coaldust you fail to see the reality ! Yeah Flint has legally appointed mayor etc , but the republinut governor decided that his way of doing things was better than theirs so he appointed a emergecy overseer who makes all the calls . Nice eh , I'd just tell all the local officals to go home !

NCN as long as we are talking about the most recent Sebring, Ohio event. if you are speaking of Flint, then my points are misdirected and i apologize for the attempted correction. according to multiple outlets, James Bates is referred to as the Water Superintendent.

The lead in the water is coming from the lead pipes in the peoples homes or the feeder lines servicing those homes. The water leaving the plant does not have lead in it but the chemicals added to the water cause the lead to leach out of the pipes.

This is a cluster. But it does show what happens when Bureaucrats look for the easy way out.

NCN....according to CNN, only 3 of the 28 homes still have unacceptable levels of lead after retesting. you may not be aware but even the Superintendents need to have applicable licenses issued by State DNR's. as suspected, grab samples were the culprit and mishandling of the elevated levels of lead. in many cases, older homes are susectable to elevated lead in their water and......since consumers are usually responsible for all indoor plumbing, the removal and replacement can be quite costly. anyhow, he denies fudging the numbers, so it will be interesting to see how it shakes out. but an operator of a plant is is most likely not....especially considering that the town manager has stepped in for the time being...i am certain he lacks certification to treat water.

Metro news is reporting that 66% of WV residents support right to work legislation with 28% opposing. Looks like we are heading the right way

, the Ohio EPA is taking steps to revoke the water treatment operator license of Jim Bates, the current licensed operator, as he is not properly performing his duties in a manner that is protective of public health. The agency also has reason to suspect that the operator falsified reports, so it has opened an investigation and is requesting help from U.S. EPA’s Criminal Investigation Division.

The state Environmental Protection Agency issued an emergency order Monday forbidding James Bates from working at the Sebring village water treatment plant and informing him that the agency intends to revoke his operating license for endangering the public and for submitting "misleading, inaccurate or false reports." Ohio EPA Director Craig Butler said he asked the U.S. EPA to open a criminal investigation of what occurred in Sebring, a village about 60 miles southeast of Cleveland.

The Youngstown Vindicator reported Monday that Bates has been placed on administrative leave. Bates declined to comment when reached at home.

Ohio's environmental protection agency issued a warning on December 3 about lead contamination in the Sebring water supply.

It issued a notice of violation to the village on Thursday after learning officials "had failed to properly notify its customers" and repeatedly failed to "provide timely and accurate information to the department's field office."

"It has become apparent that our field office was too patient in dealing with the village of Sebring's 'cat and mouse' game and should have had closer scrutiny on the water system meeting its deadlines," Ohio EPA Director Craig Butler said.

The agency said in a statement it has "reason to suspect that the operator falsified reports" and has asked the federal Environmental Protection Agency's criminal division for help with the investigation.

The Ohio agency did not specify what kind of reports it was referring to. A spokesperson for it was not immediately available for comment.

NCN...you are correct...reports should never be falsified much like your mis-assignment of blame. our water supplies are essential and great care and oversight should be mandated and vigorously enforced.
