Greensburg, IN—A public presentation of information on the Decatur Landfill was held last evening at the Greensburg Community High School. Present were experts with IDEM as well as Dr. Terry West, a geology professor with Purdue University that discussed the land underneath the landfill in respect to the public concern that the water aquifer could possibly be contaminated by landfill runoff and leach into usable water. “Be assured of the fact that the geology of this site is a very good location and is one that many organizations would like this type of material under their landfill, ” according to Dr. West. Dr. West specializes in hazardous waste disposal as well as engineering geology. He discussed not only would the liner used be a safe material to block toxins but also, the area’s glacial till and clay acts as nature’s blocker to break down toxins. Dr. West stated, “Near Bloomington, it is difficult to put in a landfill in the limestone country, because limestone has karst, or leakage problems, but glacial till has the best material to put in landfills in this area of the state.”Several Community members asked questions or expressed concerns during the question-answer portion of the presentation. There are currently only 33 landfills in the state and the current Decatur Hills Landfill has been in use and permitted since January of 1990.

Press Association Although Hughes has been in action at Cheltenham in the past and is due to help out his father Dessie at the meeting, it will be a new experience for O’Brien. “He has been approved to ride in the bumper. He’ll have an Irish National Hunt licence for a year,” said Denis Egan, chief executive of the Irish Turf Club. BHA spokesman Robin Mounsey added: “Hughes was granted his jumps licence on Thursday to ride.” Michael Channon junior, Channon’s son and assistant, said: “As long as Hughesie has got everything through he will be riding.

The son of Henrythenavigator only needed to be pushed out by Pat Smullen to beat Body Beautiful by a ready three and a half lengths. Sailors Swan made a successful seasonal debut when landing the Come Racing On June 14th Maiden at Navan in some style. Weld said of the 11-8 favourite: “He did it well, Pat said the ground was beautiful. “The rain left it really nice, it had changed to good to firm this morning and I was a little bit worried as he likes to get his toe in, but I was happy when I walked the track that it was safe. He was fit and knew his job. “He’ll go for a handicap now and that trip is about right for him, we ran him over seven furlongs as a two-year-old and we thought we’d come back in trip with him.” Christina Simpson enjoyed a moment to remember as she rode her fist ever winner on Above The Law (16-1) in the Navan Family Day Handicap. The 20-year-old, who claims 10lb and is from Tynan in County Armagh, was in front from an early stage on the Andrew Oliver-trained gelding and did really well to keep all at bay as the challengers loomed from two out. Chillie Billie got closest but was still a length and a half down at the line. Oliver said: “That’s great. He’s been a good servant and he likes that sort of ground. We put the blinkers on as he was getting a bit clever. “It’s all about Christina, I’m delighted for her. She’s been with me three or four years, she’s great girl and a great worker. Fair play to her, she gave it a great ride.”
