I think at this point they don't want to take the blame because of insurance reasons. Just a few months ago they had a massive sewage leak into the lake....can anybody guess where the E.Cloli came from? I have this feeling that they will continue to deny any wrong doing and eventually never get held accountable. Just think the kids and pregnant mother are suffering right now. I hope the FBI tales a look at the way they do business.
