Leake Oil co is closed, maybe some phone calls could uncover something, starting there?

Food producers...

Some interesting companies are in the following list:

Valley Seed Growers
Oakland Bean Cleaning & Storag (meat also)
Tarke Warehouse
Cal-Bean & Grain Cooperative
Adobe Milling Co

If society fell apart, we - the people would build a new one. Most people are good at their core, and when we see things that are wrong we work to fix them together. Make friends with your neighbors, get involved with your community - because we will rebuild our lives, our communities, from horrible circumstances we always will.

Video shows sparks and flames well before Ohio train derailment

Stunning video is raising questions for people in East Palestine.

The video, which captured the train rolling 20 miles before the site where it derailed, is raising questions about when the crew knew there was a problem. 

The video, obtained by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, was taken by a security camera at an equipment plant in Salem, Ohio. What appears to be sparks and flames can be seen on the video underneath one of the train cars as it passes the plant. The National Transportation Safety Board referenced the video at a news conference earlier this week.

Full List of Toxic Chemicals Released From Ohio Train Derailment

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a full list of toxic chemicals that were released when a cargo train derailed near the border between Ohio and Pennsylvania on February 3...

...The derailment caused a huge fire and, fearing a massive explosion that would release noxious gases and shrapnel into the surrounding area, emergency responders intentionally breached five cars to let out the chemicals inside.

The chemicals were diverted into a trench and burnt off. Officials warned, however, that it would send toxic gases phosgene—used during World War I—and hydrogen chloride into the atmosphere...

Greater Cincinnati Water Works monitoring water quality after East Palestine train derailment

Cincinnati city manager Sheryl Long says Greater Cincinnati Water Works is monitoring the water quality in the Cincinnati area after the train derailment and release of toxic chemicals in East Palestine.

Crews released toxic chemicals into the air from five derailed tanker cars that were in danger of exploding Monday and began burning them after warning residents near the Ohio-Pennsylvania state line to leave immediately or face the possibility of death.

Low levels of dangerous chemicals from the ones released in the derailment were detected in the Ohio River downstream of the incident.

Long says right now, the chemicals detected are far upstream of Cincinnati...

...Long said if the compound is detected near Cincinnati, Greater Cincinnati Water Works can shut the river intakes for a period of time to avoid the compound altogether.

The Granular Activated Carbon used in GCWW's water treatment plant and other steps in the treatment process will remove the compound so no impact to the drinking water quality is expected.

A previous spillage of vinyl chloride after a train derailment occured in Paulsboro, New Jersey, in 2012. That state’s Department of Health compiled a fact sheet on the potential effects of exposure to humans that year which said stated: “It is not known whether short-term exposure to vinyl chloride can cause long-term health effects.”

Seems like it. But the first step in solving any problem is recognizing that it exists. The problems have been there, just hidden from us for far too long. Now, at least, we are beginning to see them. And yes, some days it seems like a flood of doom. But remember this: we are not a sorry lot of people. We all have strengths and skills and talents. By coming together and bringing whatever we have to the table, we can begin to fix these issues. Never underestimate your ability to make things better. Maybe you can't clean up the Ohio River (and neither can I!) but by spreading the information, we can reach those who DO have the ability to do something about it. And at the very least, you can offer encouragement to those who need it most right now. 

We can do this! Heartflowers (and that, my friend, is good news!)
