IN THIS REPORT I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL AND AN EMAIL ABOUT A TRAILER PARK IN THE VILLAGE OF KING.  I WAS ASKED TO COME OUT AND RECORD  THE PROBLEM THERE , THEIR SEEMS TO BE SOME PROBLEM WITH SEWER JUST LEAKING OUT OF THE GROUND.  BELOW IS THE VIDEO I SHOT AND THE LETTER FROM THE RESIDENT OF THIS AREA.  IF ANYONE HAS ANY ADVICE FOR THESE PEOPLE PLEASE FEEL FREE TO PLACE THEM IN THE COMMENT AREA AND THE BOTTOM OF THIS ARTICLE

———————————————————

I grew up beside this stream. I played in this stream as a child. I fished in this stream and ate the fish I caught when I got older. I became concerned with the quality of the water when I noticed the fish started to disappear and any wildlife associated with the stream.

I noticed what I thought was sewage along the banks of the stream. I reported this to DEP in the 70’s. As far as I am aware no action was taken.

A few years went by and I reported the issue again in the 80’s. The condition of the stream steadily worsened.

I made another report in the 90’s. Once again the condition of the stream was worsening.

I made a report in 2009 to DEP. Heather Agosta of the Altoona office of DEP came and took water samples. Her investigation showed that the stream was void of life. She said she would be in touch with me in seven days to give me a detailed report. She called me within the seven day period and said the results of the test would not be revealed to me. I asked her for a copy of the results and she refused stating the report was confidential and the case was closed.

I decided to go public with this issue because it appears I am getting no results from any government agency. I would like to see the results of this test due to medical concerns I have been experiencing. I am also concerned for my children and the other families that this may affect.

    It would be very interesting what Heather Agosta knew and didn’t want to reveal, heck yes it was contaminated, and there was probably living parasites in that sewage or even the water. There is no doubt in my mind Barbara and her son was sick, especially with a gas pipe running right under their home. The people in charge have covered up just as much as the landlord, because there should have been a inspection done before the mobile home was ever placed on the property to make sure the sewage and gas lines weren’t running under anyones home. And they more than likely didn’t do that. If the landlord was told to remove the trailer, then something must have been found for that decision to be made. There is a reason why the landlord has never been charged in this case, somebody didn’t do their job on the local level, and their being protected by possibly a higher up, because the higher up has the pull to make sure of it, all of these jerks have thought all along Barbara would go away, its a big run around that will never end, I just hope one day they slip up and thing fall apart and Barbara does get justice on everyone of them that has messed her around. They collect money for dead people who probably still have voting rights, and the enforcement will be passed on for generations to come. I mean were are 36 years into the problem now, and there isn’t much going to be done the longer it is dragged on. Keep up in the good work Barbara in telling your story, and Cameraman, thanks for helping her getting it out.

    Since 911 there has been an extreme shift in the priorities of the American society. Greed and control are the goals. Sickness and wrong go ignored and it is truly a shame that the suffering of many humans is the cost. You have done a lot of work Barbara and yet ignored. I believe compiling it into one presentation and making a large list of various contacts and sending them daily may help. Persistence used to pay off.

  3. HELP THIS MOTHER & CHILD says:

    The story of Barb Long and her son need to go viral. Help is needed here ASAP!

  4. Just me says:

    Is anyone Enforcing the laws here in the County? Barb Long and her son are suffering do something now people are in danger!

  5. Just me says:

    Please help Barb Tipton long and her son

  6. JoAnn says:

    do you think someone at the Altoona DEP could fix this problem? hmmm

    Don’t Expect Protection

  7. Barbara Long says:

    The PIPE is not capped like DEP said I went there did video on March 7 2013 and the smell there was very volatile, also March 10 2013 took picture of the pipe and it’s still flowing into Boiling Spring Run and this is on the bedford/blair county line and is draining into another township and a source of drinking water not far downstream from here. Wheres DEP been in all this polluting and the dangers to the children still living in this environment ?

  8. Julie McLaughlin says:

    Great work, Barb! This should be reported on NATIONAL NEWS. All of the residents who were sickened by the sewage, and those who suffered financial losses, deserve to be well-compensated by the persons who caused this….and they continue to be NEGLIGENT!! God bless you for everything you have endured. I will pray for justice.

  9. Liz R. says:

    Hello Barbara,
    Saw this DEP press release and thought of your fight for clean water. Good luck!

    WHEN I GAVE THIS INTERVIEW FOR THE CAMERAMAN I MADE A COMMENT ABOUT THE TOWNSHIP SUPERVISORS DOING THE BEST THEY CAN TO HELP,THEY ARE NOT HELPING ME OR THE OTHERS, I DID NOT REALIZE THAT THEY KNEW ABOUT THE SEWAGE MALFUNCTIONS SINCE 1978, GAS TANKS STILL NEVER PUMPED OUT UNTIL 1/11/12 AND OTHER ISSUES WHEN THEY GAVE ME A PERMIT TO MOVE MY MOBILE HOME INTO THE LAMBORN TRAILER COURT AND ARE NOT HONORING THE OATH OR THE Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code ALSO THE SECRETARY OF THE TOWNSHIP WAS THE SAME SECRETARY THE HANDLED MY SONS HOMEBOUND PROGRAM AT HIS SCHOOL, SO THE TOWNSHIP KNEW THAT MY SON WAS SICK AND FROM THE LANDLORD BRAKING A SEWAGE PIPE RIGHT OUTSIDE MY BEDROOM WINDOW, I THOUGHT THE TOWNSHIP WAS THE ONES TO GO FOR HELP

  11. crazy lady says:

    in clearville, pa we suffer with methane poisoning and NO ONE
    addresses the problem; DEP;don’t expect protection, Doctors tell us we are liars, Doctors state they won’t testify to health test results in court, Doctors DON’T HAVE A CLUE WHAT TO LOOK FOR AND WHAT TESTS TO TAKE ON A PATIENT WITH METHANE IN THE BLOOD STREAM, 3 times in a fifteen day period. DOCUMENTED!!!!! in an ER in Bedford County.

    ALERT to ALL BEDFORD COUNTY PROPERTY OWNERS – my ATTY in 1976 after 50 years of research in the BC Counthouse certified that
    there was only one original lease plus one addendum BUT————–there were in fact THREE CHANGES to the original and I
    receive payments of $2.00 YES that’s $2.00 per acre for the
    painful, unhealthy pleasure of methane poisoning in 2010.

    The Natural Gas Drillers are the ADULT BULLIES that BC Landowners have to deal with on a daily basis. They are the riches, influential, politically connected BULLIE-Vultures that WE HAVE ALLOWED TO INVADE BEDFORD COUNTY.

    We are making it an important issue recently to TEACH our CHILDREN HOW TO LIVE AND/OR SURVIVE IN THIS WORLD WITH THE BULLIES, HOW DO WE AS ADULTS LIVE AND/OR SURVIVE WITH THE BULLIES?

    Also want to make note of the fact that recently in asking a politician for information that would help me get answers to my health problems, I was directly told I could NOT HAVE THIS INFORMATION BECAUSE IT MAY FALL INTO THE HANDS OF TERRORISTS!
    I am highly insulted by the insinuation and more than ANGRY that it was made to me because this POLITICIAN KNOWS MY PROBLEMS ARE VERY SERIOUS AND GO FAR BEYOND BC BORDERS.

    MY STORY HAS BEEN MADE PUBLIC ‘FODDER’ FOR THREE YEARS NOW AND I STILL MEET PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO CLUE AS TO THE WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION THAT THE NATURAL GAS DRILLERS HAVE BROUGHT TO BEDFORD COUNTY AND THE PLANET AS WE KNOW IT.

    WAKE UP AMERICA AND GET YOU HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS.

    THE MONEY THEY GRUDGELING GIVE YOU WILL ONLY INSULATE THE PINE BOX YOU WILL BE BURIED IN WHEN YOU MEET YOUR MAKER.

  12. someone who knows says:

    it is about time somebody got the info about the water results posted for all to see. now everyone knows exactly how much shit they been drinkin for the last 30 yrs maybe the proper agency will do the right thing for a change.

  13. http://www.facebook.com/events/326669127357040/ http://www.facebook.com/events/326669127357040/ Enough is enough!!!! We are going to Washington, DC to ask the EPA for help regarding this raw sewage contamination of this county!! Are you crazy to allow people to live on a contaminated site!!!! How much money are you making for violating the Clean Water Act involving sewage discharges??? We will share this all over the Internet, for all that are breaking the law!!! You took and contaminated someone’s Home, Heath and Dreams! We will never go away!!!

  14. Barb Long says:

    Also, why is the township geting funding for a play ground and when there residents are living on this contaminated ground ? I also have been checking into grant and funding programs which is available even here on the internet all you have to do is learn how and where to go to find the information. Google is a start.

  15. Barb Long says:

    It’s been 16 months and 6 days since I realized that my landlord had broken a sewage pipe beside my mobile home which caused the seepage of sewage and pollutants causing gases to enter our home. I have been waiting for charges to be filed by the ones that it is there responsiblity to enforce these violations. It is against the law and many violations.
    The landlord dug a hole broke a sewage pipe and did not inform me. Then he dug the yard up and ran a pvc sewage pipe to the stream and the results for fecal coliforms are posted. 80000/100ml is a bit much and that was what was draining under my home from the broken sewage pipe. There are other results and tests that have been done and I will give it to the Cameraman to post. I had a Attorney ask for the results that BCTBSC had done and they denied him. I have been doing my own research and found the Right To Know Laws and I filed a Right to Know request to the Kimmel township and to BCTBSC and both were denied and that the test results were not public knowledge. I filed a appeal on the denial to BCTBSC and they decied to release the results.
    I went to the Kimmel Township meeting back in May 2011 to see what they were going to do about this and they told me that they were in the mist of a investigation and that they still didn’t know who the owner of the mobile home park was. What does that have to do with the landlord braking a sewage pipe beside my home causing harm to me and my son ? and running 80000/100 of fecal into the stream ???
    Also at the meeting in May I didn’t realize until then that the township secretary also was the secretary that was handling my sons home bound program at his school so they knew that my son was sick from this and she is also the Right to Know Officer to the township.
    I read the MPC Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Codes and I went to a meeting again and I gave the definition of a Landowner which is the legal or beneficial owner or owners of land including the holder of an option or contract to
    purchase whether or not such option or contract is subject to any condition, a lessee if he is authorized under
    the lease to exercise the rights of the landowner or other person having a proprietary interest in land and this can be found in there MPC.
    I met with their Solicitor and gave him information to help the township with their investigation and I really wanted to help them and them help me so that my son and I could have some kind of justice. He hasn’t called me back and I think they are just waiting for me to go away.
    In the last 16 months I have contacted many depts. agencies, and have found that there is more here then just a broken sewage pipe. The health violations, civil rights and environmental laws, fraud, consumer protects apparently do not apply to Lamborn Mobile Home Park and Kimmel Township. And this makes you wonder why doesn’t it ?
    I believe that I have found many answers.
    DEP in Harrisburg has been helpful I will admit with information.
    Its is the townships responsibility for the safety of their citizens.
    The man from DEP said it took him almost a year to find the funds to have the gas tanks pumped out and that was on 1/11/2012 from the Lamborns Sunoco.
    The residents have come and gone and there have been many that were treated very unfair like when the landlords came and took the pump that had to be used to pump the nasty fluid that drains fron the tank that was buried under the ground and then the garage was built and was used to pump this nasty fluid from their yards which is very unhealthy. Another elderly residents they piled a lot of junk in front of their front door and were unable to get out the door. Threw a young boys bike onto the road and were cursing and this while there were children there. Another resident they shut their water off. I could go on but maybe some of these residents will come and post there story of this place. I went to the township and told them of this and my concerns for the others still there at the mobile home park.
    I will make another post tomorrow on a more indepth post I have to make sure that it is legal before information is posted.
    This could have been avioded if the Kimmel township would not have gave me a permit to have my mobile home moved to Lamborns Mobile Home Park.

  16. Barbie says:

    THE SEWAGE PIPE THAT THE LANDLORD BROKE IS STILL BROKEN RIGHT BESIDE MY MOBILE HOME
    ALSO WHY DID THEY MOVE ME ON A LEACH BED TO BEGIN WITH ???
    AND ISN’T THAT AGAINST THE LAW ???

  17. Barbie says:

    The Kimmel Townships Solicitor has not called me yet and I went to the meeting in May and told them I wanted to work with them so that something could be done and there Solicitor said he would be calling me but has not made no attempt.Also I was told from my Senators office that he was the one to contact in helping with this mess also by a attorney and old friend of mine, I believe that there Solicitor does not have the townships best interest, I still do believe that the Supervisors are good people but are being mislead by others. Who and what are they trying to protect ? Not me and not the others that are still living there. Not those that are living down stream from here.
    I did file a RTK to get the water test results and they were denied then I filed a appeal then the water test were released. And the results were very high. It’s a shame it took almost a year to get the results and it may have helped with treating us.
    Maybe Dean Shuller isn’t the bad guy that DEP and others seemed to want to make him out to be, the emails seemed to want to put the blame on Dean wanting to filter info but theres a bigger picture here of all the players in this.
    Who are you trying to protect ? The landlord told the investigator in Harrisburg who he was making payments to to purchase the property, so we know who the property owner is and why does Glenn have so much control and influence over this ???????????????????????????????????????????????

  18. Barbie says:

    I have the water test results from Bedford County Sanitary Corporation will give the results to the Cameraman and he can post them if he wants. IT’S PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE Now to get past test done

  19. laura says:

    I watched the videos and read the other comments and such and i think someone should be held responsible if the land and water is bad enough to make people sick! But i don’t think fingers should really be pointed and stuff, i think that whoever is gonna collect rent or whoever the land owner is or whatever should work with the tenants to fix the issues or the tenants should be compensated for having to move their mobile homes or whatever the case may be cuz not everyone that live out there has Which is in my opinion the landlord or the property owner/managers problem being that the tenants pay someone rent! Also it is in my opinion that the water fillin up the yard may be due to the cap put on the pipe to keep the yucky,stinky water from runnin into the stream,therefore makin the water back up into that paticular yard. If that yucky water is what is makin people sick, the couple families that live in the direct yard are more than likely being affected by the water being there. I know personally that the water there backing up in the yard stinks and is gross and it can’t be good for adults and there are children that reside in atleast 2 of the mobile homes directly in the spot where the water is backing up in! Don’t point fingers b’cuz the true owners seem to be deceased according to some of the paperwork or the videos,so if they could maybe make it easier for the tenants and the landlord or property manager or whoever to maybe work together and figure out the best solution instead of nit picking and finger pointing cuz a lot of the tenants don’t want to or can’t afford to move and start over some place else!

  20. Brian Prickett says:

    Selective enforcement of the Law is standard procedure for local townships. You will find that most town power players, families, and police control the real estate in the town. Frame ups, forgery and false witness are standard practice to quiet the dissenters. County courts and judges are all part of the real estate power family. Never underestimate what a politician will do to maintain his money and power for his family, false imprisonment, and murder are all within their grasp. Look at my link above, I have stopped for now due to repeated death threats, and attacks on my family

  21. Jonathan Lee Gallup says:

    This is starting to get play around the net and Harrisburg. Please, stay on it. Whens the next follow up ?

  22. Julie Edgar says:

    i am speechless; what a convoluted situation and tangled web of irresponsibility, dead ends, loose threads, and deceit~ my <3 goes out to her and her son. can they move their trailer to somewhere else to keep from dying from this? i don't see this sad and messed up situation becoming transparent anytime soon.. :***( kudos for coming forward and to cameraman for documenting; our regulatory agencies are *clearly* not here to help us. live and learn=older, wiser, and sadder in this case.

  23. Laura Serrano says:

    The lies,corruption and cover-ups.It amaze me! Do they know that shit is hard to cover-up.From experience they tell you too your face,there nothing here.They are blind ,deaf and have no sense of smell.Barbara keep talking in till you have no voice. Show them you will not go away. You keep telling the truth and one day you will prevail!

  24. Michelle Finnegan says:

    Maybe it’s time to get the MEDIA Involved in this!!!! Then see what happens.

  25. Michelle Finnegan says:

    I would just like to say ,1,to the woman who says about the Landlord and what their going though?!! Please..Yeah they have Jobs etc,,But Dam,,, this shit is SERIOUS!!! This should be their 1st Priority to get this Matter taken Care Of. I know Barb and I have been to her home,I have seen her son and her and how SICK they are!!! They need to Step up to the Plate and Get THINGS DONE!!! Barb Is NOT doing this for Drama or what ever you all think,,Hell she can’t live in her OWN HOME because of this! Either fix the problem,Or You can pay to have her Home moved some where else that her Family can Live in Safely! What is WRONG with you People? Maybe they should find another Landlord then that will take over and do SOMETHING about this,,SINCE they are to BUSY with their Own Lives. I’ve seen Barb and her son,and let me tell you,,I cried!! Her son is sooo sick,,Come on Get off your lazy ass and do something for the People in this Trailer Park. If NoT I’m sure you will eventually get a HUGE Law Suit!
    Js,,

  26. I did a you tube called Toxic Philadelphia. Like Barbara I have lost my home and been very ill for years due to digging up a contaminated site next to the house with no safety measures, not following proper protocol and constant denial of civil rights by Philadelphia politicians. Failures of EPA and DEPA. After awhile I understood the political corruption of Philadelphia but I thought someone would help. Like Barbara I did a lot of detective work, but it didn’t matter. The city and their developer friends wanted to harm me and hide their crimes. I have not had a home for years and I get weaker every day. Everyday I think about dying. These toxic chemicals are really dangerous and it it wrong to not jump at it as a haz mat emergency and be transparent so people can get the help they need. I know it hurts Barbara the most the see her son ill. One of my cats died rapidly of cancer and the other one still has lung issues as I do. Toxic exposures make you feel ill all the time. This is an environmental Justice problem, public health and civil rights.
    http://youtu.be/G_CmV8iC_Ak

  27. This is criminal. People are sick and dying from toxic stuff caused by the wrongs of others. The politicians and business leaders of Philadelphia have also intentionally harmed me. I’ve been very ill and it’s all political people who cover up and have intentional harmed me, even the police. I have not been able to live n my house for years and terribly frightened. Thank you.

  28. freshair says:

    Ya know I was wondering I get so many excuses blah blah blah We all know who is responsible for braking the dam sewage pipe right outside my bedroom window ok WHY HASN’T THE LANDLORD BEEN CHARGED YET HE ALMOST KILLED MY SON AND I,
    SO IF I GO DIG A HOLE OUTSIDE SOMEONES BEDROOM DON’T YOU THINK I WOULD GET CHARGED ??? WHATS THE PROBLEM OR MORE LIKE IT WHAT YOU ALL WORRIED ABOUT, ARE YOU WAITING FOR US TO DIE OR WHAT ?
    OH THATS RIGHT SOMEONE ALMOST DID OTHER THEN US

  29. STAN says:

    i just seen these storys for the first time,here is another story that was negelicted.down at camp pleasant behind the dollor general i seen an indivigual take a pick that you use to dig a ditch with and punch holes in to a 500gal home heating oil tank so it would empty out to be removed.there was at least 300 gal of heating oil that just ran into the ground,right beside the river ,behind a house which is no farther then 20ft from the water.i called the proper people and told them exactly what happened and that i wittness this action,and that the tanks were moved when they were empty and where the tanks were taken ,and i was told i was ling,and there was no damage that they could see from the top of the ground..daaaaa,the heating oil was down in the ground not laying ontop of the ground.but it was dropped and forgot about.got to wander how many homes have water problems now.but probly none, because of the flooding that occures there all the time and believe me not one person who lives their now knows this story.but i know exactly which house this happened at and there are people living there now…sorry for their health problems…

  30. freshair says:

    I woke up this morning I took a deep breath in, I exhaled,I moved my fingers, i moved my toes and I took a big stretch and thought i appreciate every bit if it, most of all I could think, No headache,no numbness, no tingling,no fuzziness or ringing in my head, no gasping for air…

    You all left me and my son there to die

  31. freshair says:

    I asked Dean for the water results that Jeff took from the pipe in August and he said it was not public knowledge and that releasing the results would interfere with there investigation. He also said that they have filed charges on who did the illegal repairs and discharge of sewage into the streams of the commonwealth and I wonder if thats true ? Can you find out and see if anyone has been charged ?

  32. angelswatch@live.com says:

    I can answer almost all the questions Cameraman, and I as well as others are wondering why has this mobile home park sewage issues have not been adressed since 9/13/1978 when the sewage system problems were first discovered ?
    Why did the owner not dispose of the gas tanks properly ?
    Brick bat to fill in a wetland ?
    Meth Lab 5 years ago when Donna Lamborn long and Gary Long were the managers and where did the waste go from this lab ?
    This is almost unbelievable for this to happen in our country or county you would think but there are others places that go unnoticed in this country…
    I have a question that is almost as unbelievable as the issues here, Are they or those that have lived here some kind of experiment or what ?
    Makes You Wonder Why ?

  33. coverup16655 says:

    I hear that there are still gas tanks in the ground and that some of the product is still in one of the tanks i thought that when gas stations closed down that they were to removed the tanks (well empty them first) or have them filled in and if this is true why hasn’t this been done ?

    DEP STRONG ARMS RANDY RITCHEY

    Some time during the week of August 13th, two white vans containing numerous DEP officials, including head DEP legal counsel Charnie Regenstein, DEP’s geologist, DEP Watershed Management Manager Rita Coleman, and several other DEP “personnel” descended on Randy Ritchey’s home on Gravity Hill Road. They were accompanied by Somerset Soil Conservation District Officer, Keith Largent. Mr. Ritchey was advised by the many DEP officials, in no uncertain terms, that Gamesa’s destruction of the top of Shaffer Mountain would not affect his water and would have no effect on his trout farm. At the time, Mr. Ritchey was represented by legal counsel.

    Soon after DEP left, Mr. Ritchey contacted his legal counsel and advised him that he no longer wished to participate in the lawsuit against DEP and Gamesa.

    Tony Soprano would be proud.

    Such intimidation tactics are unconscionable and illegal. Yet, this is the level to which DEP has degenerated since becoming a business partner with Gamesa.

  35. stopabuse says:

    Donna Lamborn Long and Gary Long were the landlord/managers before Burley took over ? Do they own the park?

  36. freshair says:

    Who’s Randy Ritchey ?

  37. freshair says:

    Thats a good question What does make this mobile home park different from Lamborn mobile Home Park thats a question that DEP should answer and theres more violations there then what that park has !!!

  38. FREE PRESS says:

    TO D.E.P.,

    WHAT MAKES THIS TRAILER PARK ANY DIFFERENT THEN LANBOURNE’S ??

    http://www.wjactv.com/video/25556669/index.html

  39. random thoughts says:

    it seems to me that if nobody owns the property to file a complaint nobody shuld have to pay rent or anything else if nobody owns it anybody can live there and not have to pay rent and as for the crooked guys that say they are landlords if they cannot get the problem fixed the place does need condemmed and nobody able to live there till it is fixed and they have to clean up the whole mess but if they want to b landlords they should get the charges filed against them if they cannot make enough in the rent to fix the problems there they are not verry good landlords or manangers so i think them clowns are the landlords and the COVERUP CREW so how much do you get paid to cover up things people? is it worth it? to live in a shithole think about it

  40. chrissy says:

    i have read the articles and viewed the videos, there is no question that there is sewage running into the water along with god only knows what else. my question is how can u stand to continue living thee knowing that the water u cook with and drink with is that nasty. i heard of trying to save on the water bill, but come on now. dont u care what u may be putting into the mouths of ur children everytime they eat or drink something. in the real world if u fed ur kids that many chemicals it would be considered child abuse and u would all say how foul that parent or parents were. are u not doing just tat to ur children by trying to just let it be. i would at least want to know the facts and have somethin done, but thats just my opinion. i will pray for u all.

  41. FREE PRESS " CAMERAMAN " says:

    THIS IS PATHETIC,

    your comment was nothing more then a personal attack, the documents speak for themselves, your comment was rejected

  42. this is pathetic says:
  43. freshair says:

    Some of what you posted Lisa Stern I do agree with and some I don’t, but I guess you have to experience what others have gone through to understand. I wouldn’t want to trade places with the landlords and I am sure they wouldn’t want to trade places with me either.
    As for the risks I will tell you this, its not worth taking that risk, at least not on my lot…
    As for the rumors i am upset with that also, just idiots taking advantage of any chance they can to cause trouble and drama.

    And I see why Dean and Jeff are not returning my calls.
    They know that I want to know what the water results are from the last water test they took from the pipe ?
    PLUS they also know that I want to know what all chemicals I have been exposed to from the dirt I have been living on ???
    I can honestly say that One of the kimmel township supervizer did return my call and he told me that they wouldn’t even tell him what all the chemicals were there. And I wasn’t the only one that heard that …
    I do know that there is already a lot of dirt spread around, but I just want them to tell everyone the truth and thats the right thing to do.
    There are honest people in this world and even if you have done wrong in the past it’s never too late to do the right thing.

    As for Claysburg water my parents felt the same way you did, but now a few years later they are happy they connected to the water, they understand, at least greenfield township is doing the right things to make there community a safe environment for all.

  44. FREE PRESS " CAMERAMAN " says:

    WELL AINT THESE EMAILS MOST INTERESTING?

    IT SEEMS DEAN SHULLER IS ASKING IF HE NEEDS TO FILTER INFORMATION SENT TO MIKE SHOEMAKER CONCERNING THIS TRAILER PARK

    AFTER READING THESE EMAILS CAN ANYONE SPELL OUT

    C.O.V.E.R. U.P.

    DOES THE PEOPLE AT THE TRAILER PARK WANT TO STILL MAKE THE PUBLIC THINK ” WE GOT NO PROBLEM HERE ” ?

    I just read all the comments and watched the videos. I also read and re-read the paperwork from Bedford Sanitation dept.
    I can see there have been almost 30 years of sewage problems with the park. I can only imagine what the landlords are going through. Do you think they are dragging their feet not to do anything? I know your landlords and they are very good people. They have been through alot in a short time. Now they have to put up with rumors of meth labs, a fire which destroyed items that will never be replaced, and now all of this. Just because they are the landlords dont mean they dont feel the effects and strain this has to be causing them. They are people just like yourselves and I am sure they are trying to make things right out there. Like one person wrote, they have alot on their plates too with other rentals and full time jobs. If I had to move today I would ask your landlord if there was room for me in your park. Ok, there might be a sewage problem, I understand the risk, but do we really know the safety levels of ANY water we are drinking? Have you ever smelled or tasted Claysburg’s water? I had to unhook from my naturally fed well to hook onto their water and I have not had a glass of water from my sink in years. Just being an outsider looking in and knowing the parties involved, I am upset that people are forgetting they can only do so much. Would you trade places with them? Would you want this hanging over your head and working on your nerves? Why dont you try working WITH them to help make your mobile home park a happy place to live. I plan on digging up as much as I can find out about this, to try to help. Yelling and drama arent working. Thats clear.
    Sincerely,
    Lisa Stern

  48. freshair says:

    I don’t understand why the others in the park are treating me so badly I never did nothing to yous All I did was let the cameraman come and do this reporting on something that should have been taken care of so many years ago, so it is healthy for all. MY son and I are the ones who where living on all your shit. We are the ones that have every right to be mad. There is so many lies and rumors being said that I am sick of it. I never wanted to cause no one trouble but the treatment that I have been receiving is just unhuman. I have received papers from various agencies that I have not filled out because I did not want to cause any more trouble but as I see it I might as well do what was asked of me because what difference would it make ? I am being accused of causing trouble. And for me to get this treatment You think that there would be a little compassion to me and my son we are the ones that have been treated wrong.

  54. Heidi says:

    Reading what some of you goofs have to say disgusts me. You have no facts or anything, just want to run your mouth and try to look big. If you don’t have anything useful to say about the problem then shut up. All you are doing is making yourself look stupid.

    No one wants to put 13 families out on the street, but if the place is unfit to live in then it needs to be done, for their safety!

    Those of you who do nothing but try to attack cameraman like a bunch of high school kids need to grow up. Unfortunately you are just proof of the immature people of this county. No one wants to admit the truth about anything in this county.

  55. FREE PRESS " CAMERAMAN " says:

    what i find amazing is everyone of you clowns in that park are ignoring the letter from dean shuller from the sanitary dept, were he states their are and have been problems in that trailer park going back to 1978

    is the problem that you people are to drunk to read that letter, it CLEARLY states that park got major problems,

    if your follow up comments are not about this letter and you intend to keep attacking me

    then dont bother posting your follow up comment for it wont get posted

    i want someone to step and and explain this letter, all other comments will not be posted until this letter is addressed

    and for the record barbie long is not the person who contacted me originaly about this story

    their is still another person in the picture here that i see you dont know about!

    for that person is the one who made the call, and that person is the one who wrote the article at the top of this page

    i do not know barbie long, i only met her when i showed up to do this story
