EPA warns residents to secure hazardous items in anticipation of Missouri River floods

EPA warns residents to secure hazardous items in anticipation of Missouri River floods

EPA REGION 7 RELEASE — As the risks of new flooding along portions of the Missouri River continue to exist, EPA Region 7 is urging residents of those areas to consider moving potentially hazardous items to safer locations in advance of rising waters. During past flooding events in the Midwest, EPA has partnered with various local, state, and tribal governments to respond under the authority of the federal Oil Pollution Act to recover certain types of items from flood waters to prevent them from entering landfills. Notice of impending flooding allows residents and property owners time to relocate and secure items so that they do not become inundated, pollute water or become hazardous wastes

Debate continues over bullying environment at Anoka-Hennepin School District

Debate continues over bullying environment at Anoka-Hennepin School District

The Anoka-Hennepin School District is defending its policies in light of lawsuits by six district students , unfavorable coverage on the editorial pages of area newspapers and a renewed national spotlight on the accusation of an unsafe environment for LGBT youth in the district’s schools. The district says its policies are not to blame for bullying in the district, but others have charged that the schools’ policy that limits LGBT discussions in schools is harmful to students. Last week, the Star Tribune editorial board called the school district “gutless.” “While polls show that Americans increasingly favor tolerance and equal rights for gays, Anoka-Hennepin is stuck in the past, hiding behind an ambiguous policy in the name of neutrality,” the paper wrote.
