Kellogg Bloggin’: Is Kellogg Better Off Today?

Full post here

In the comments section of Huckleberries Online a conflict flared up that involved Kellogg. It’s an old conflict and I doubt it will ever be settled. On the one hand, Kellogg is a contaminated town. The years of mining and smelting didn’t end when the Bunker Hill mine and the Lead Smelter and the Zinc Plant closed. The toxic particulates that fell to the ground and the waste that befouled the river and the toxins that invaded houses and other physical structures remain. … So, on the one side of the conflict are those who don’t see the EPA’s efforts as sufficient and who cite studies demonstrating that Kellogg is not clean. … On the other side of the conflict are those who see the recovering environment, the cleaner Cd’A River, the trees greening Kellogg’s hillsides, the gardens thriving in yards, the clean air, and are proud of the progress Kellogg has made toward becoming a place of beauty — Raymond Pert/Kellogg Bloggin’.
