What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

Sewage in your drinking water?

A reader from North Carolina, concerned the local paper there won't cover it, since the reporters are all covering mostly car wrecks and fires, writes:

"Due to the public health risks, it is currently illegal in North Carolina to inject treated sewage into our groundwater. However, this week the state legislature is likely to begin committee hearings and could vote on a measure to unravel this public health protection.

"House Bill 643 would allow incompletely-treated wastewater (also known as “reclaimed water”) to be injected into North Carolina’s groundwater aquifers. This legislation would overturn a longstanding law that protects vital drinking-water sources and could potentially pose a significant health risk to millions of North Carolinians who depend on clean groundwater for use in their homes and businesses.

"House Bill 643 was introduced just last week and is expected to be up for debate in the House Committee on Water Resources and Infrastructure as early as tomorrow! Take action right now: Tell your state representative that you don’t want treated sewage in your drinking water."
