Good Afternoon Neighbor:I just received emails about a strong onion odor from PSC this week and that there has been unusual traffic at their facility. If you have further information in this regard or are having acute symptoms, please email me so I can forward the information to the authorities. Also, do not hesitate to call 911 if the symptoms become life threatening or your symptoms need to be documented with the authorities and Poison Control. Remember to go to our website for further reporting information at communitytaskforce.org. If anyone is smelling the onion odor now, please do not hesitate to call me so that I can have someone from the EPD go immediately to PSC.Your Neighbor,Connie

Good Evening Neighbor:This has been an extremely busy past two weeks for the Task Force. We have been writing the rebuttal to the State Health Department's Report - or as I call it "their non-report". We plan to formally present the document to the Department of Health at our Town Hall Meeting on July 19, 2007 at Bethany United Methodist Church 7pm - this will mark one year from the day we had our first Town Hall Meeting.As part of our Public Comment, the Health Department asks that you put your comments in writing - please, please do so. It does not matter if you live directly in our community - you can make a difference by insisting in your letter that they continue to follow our community in the coming years. They can begin by using serious monetary resources to actually monitor and treat our community through the use of physical exams. We know that many of us are sick presently and many of us will become sick in the years to come. They must take our exposure to Ethoprop seriously!Please email your Public Comment to me and I will print it for the Task Force Document and then I will send it on to the State Health Department. We are hoping to have several hundred letters, so please do your part and ask your neighbors to do so as well. The letters are to be directed to Mr. Sanchez - given below.Your Neighbor,ConnieFranklin Sanchez, REHSProgram ConsultantChemical Hazards ProgramEnvironmental Health and Injury Prevention BranchGeorgia Division of Public Health2 Peachtree St. NW, 13-456Atlanta, GA 30303-3142

I have been invited to speak about our community tragedy at the
Fayette Democratic Meeting this Saturday the 16th at 10:00am. I
would love to have you there!! The more we can get the word out the
better. I will not only be giving a background of events but sharing
some of what I learned in Chicago as well as comparing our scenario
with the Gulf War syndrome. The meeting will be at the Onyx Rest.
at the merger of 314 and 85 in Fayetteville - in the same area as
Bruester's Ice Cream and Big Lots.
I hope to see you there!!
