"Toxin-Tainted Community Taking Industrial 'Giant' To Court"

"The neat, modest homes of Cannon's Campground and Bellview Acres conceal tales of frustration and heartbreak."

"As Lisa Nielsen drives through the community she grew up in, she points to the homes of old friends and their families and recites their tales of sickness and death.

Carcinoma, leukemia, kidney tumors — dozens of homes have a story, and very few have happy endings.

'Every time I came to visit my mom and dad, it was, "Oh guess who's sick, guess who has cancer, guess who's dying,"' Nielsen said. "
