I especially want to thank and recognize all the employees of Logansport Memorial Hospital. People of the medical field too often go unnoticed and not recognized enough for their service.
On Nov. 30, I had to make an unplanned visit to the emergency room, I was having a heart attack. It was literally only seconds that went by before the ER personnel had me stabilized and within minutes on my way to the Heart Center in Carmel.
These people have become my heroes and I thank them from the “bottom of my heart.” Dr. Bryman, Andy Homburg, Cheri Shively, Bryan Dixson and Bob Zimmerman. Thank you for saving my life. I will always be indebted to you. Again thank each and every one, and God bless you all!!
Resident concerned about the proposed power plant
I was sorry to read that the Cass County commissioners tabled ordinances that would have protected us from dangerous emissions from the Pyrolyzer incinerator that the city wants to build. Air pollution from the incinerator will be bad for our county. Besides the odor that we will have to put up with, it will be bad for our health. I went to the lecture by Dr. Kreilein, at Memorial Hospital, where she talked about the health effects of small particles and dioxins from incinerators, especially for newborn babies and people with respiratory or heart conditions. She also talked about how dioxins affect men’s testosterone. Dioxin is what makes Agent Orange so bad.
The Pyrolyzer incinerator will use 3 millions gallons of water a day, but we do not know how clean that water will be when they dispose of it. They can’t put it in the Wabash River — it would kill the fish. They can’t put it into the Teays River as Lafayette and Purdue gets all their drinking water from it. They can’t spray it on the ground as the dioxin in it would contaminate the soil which would put it in the food chain.
The Pyrolyzer company does not have a proven record of a successful plant operating any place in the world. We do not have any proof about pollution from the plant, just whatever the company says. My information for this letter all came from a handout from the consultants, and two lectures I have attended, one at McHale and the other at Memorial.
