Subject: Update

Things have gone a bit downhill in my attempts to get something done about all the oil in my yard from the scrapyard. The Ohio EPA will not come out and look at it. They will not test any soil or run off samples. I have rainwater that looks and smells like the inside of a tailpipe from and old car in my back yard three inches deep after a hard rain. In my front yard I have oil coating my yard three feet wide across my whole lot. No county or state agency or elected official will so much as come look at it or have it tested. Out of about thirty people, agencies, TV stations, news papers, etc. I've contacted, one has shown interest. He came out to film a news article about it and nearly got into a fight with the scrapyard owner. What aired was very little about my problem and a lot about the confrontation where the owner threatened my life. So, I doubt that will get me any help needed to solve the problem.
I would like to thank Don Hammond from WKEF Channel 22 in Dayton, Ohio for even trying to do something. I'd also like to thank Pete Cadmus from this message board for showing interest and attempting to help. It has been a very long frustrating six months with no end in sight.
I added more pictures here:

The news footage is here, for how long I don't know.
