It’s been a busy month!

Actually, busy with personal stuff. Three weddings so far this summer, and one more to go! Most significantly — my son and new daughter-in-law got married this month! Big public congratulations to Jonathan and Sarah!

But, back to business — it’s being called the “Unknown Oil Spill“, but a pipeline leak this week in Kalamazoo, MI, has already become the biggest oil leak in the history of the midwestern U.S. An estimated 840,000 gallons have spilled since Monday. The oil slick now stretches some 16 miles near Battle Creek, in a river that eventually flows into the great lakes. We’ll keep you posted, and I’d be very surprised if we’re not eventually involved in this.

In OTHER news, I was honored yesterday to be invited to be the keynote speaker for October’s Brownfields Conference, sponsored by the Northwest Environmental Business Council. The meetings are scheduled for October 7 & 8 in Tacoma, Washington. Afterwards, we’ll post the text of my talk on our web site.
