JG Sablan fined $400,000

Pacific Magazine is reporting that JG Sablan has been fined $400,000 by the US EPA for illegally dumping used car batteries and used oil drums in Lower Base.

...and some people think that JG Sablan can be trusted to drill in Pagan?

Too late; he has polluted Pagan, too. Just ask Chris Nelson to show you the video they shot of abandoned machineries, oil and diesel drums, etc. The video captured it all, but the smell was something else, from what people have described. To my knowledge, local and fed agencies have done nothing to go after JG Sablan for the pollution on Pagan.

The chances of collecting the 400 are about as good as the chances of him cleaning up the mess. Non existant, sadly.

Cinta, is the video short enough to put on utube and post to your blog?

Not sure how long that was; it was a piece they did of then Gov Babauta's trip up to the Northern Islands, which included a stopover in Pagan.

From what I understand you don't actually drill for pozolan or polozan (how do you spell that). You strip the rock and carve out the earth to mine that stuff like a quarry. Only 400k? Pay up.

Isn't that the same rag that has Libra Mae Sparks? I choose not to read the "McDonald's Paper"

That is Pacific Times. Pacific Magazine is an actual Magazine that they sell at the book store.

Strip the rock and carve out the earth? Isn't that called mining?

On Pagan, I think the term would be "strip mining". I'll be seeing a huge open pit copper mine in a couple of weeks. It will give you something to think about vis a vis Pagan.
I don't know if I would spend a lot of time worrying about Pagan mining. From the lastest report it looks like the Popalazon will erode into the ocean, before anyone on capital hill gets off this particular dime. Slow moving government can be a good thing.
