25. The industry is

used to having government officials jump when they say jump; bark when they say bark; and bite when they say bite. One of my associates says the industry holds a big stick over these officials. I don't feel that stick.

Much of the dumping was illegal. For example, at one location, night-time dumping took place for years after the state ordered it to stop. We documented this -- in fact, I brought one of the truckers who dumped there illegally to DC, to help the federal government prepare their legal case. But, as mentioned, despite solid evidence, the federal judged ruled (twice) in favor of the industry.

Thus, it's a long struggle. I've been involved with it for over 30 years. While I can't really say that I'm just getting warmed up, I am able to say that I'm again picking up the pace. Everything worthwhile is as difficult as it is valuable.
