I rode my bike up Old Fort Road Sunday, a nice hill work out, and paused to take a few photos of our local superfund site. A couple of local investors built a housing development here (one of whom was a friend of mine and is now deceased) that turned into a huge debacle when it was discovered that the site was terribly contaminated with dangerous asbestos. Several families' dream homes now sit empty awaiting the bulldozers. All the residents had to be permanently relocated. It is a bad situation for everybody involved.
