Giving thanks for all the hard work

To the Editor:

I would like to respond to a letter I recently read by Laura Wilson. Your concerns seem to be a bit misplaced. You're troubled by some possible damage to a tree and a 1 to 1 slope in the excavation around a foundation?

Some of you seem to have these same concerns and that's understandable. It's new to all of us, so we're a bit nervous. However, how about the health and welfare of these unselfish men and women working for E-R and CDM who daily put their own health at risk to clean these properties in order to make them safe for you, the homeowner? I give them a big atta-boy. Thanks guys and gals.

Of course you can't please all of the people all the time, but as the EPA reported to you, Ms. Wilson, E-R has a 90 percent approval rating on the properties they've cleaned. Of course that's true. Just look around, a blind man could see it.

These guys seldom do serious damage to anything on the property and in the unlikely event that should happen, they always do their best to make it right. I say you, or anyone else in this community, have little to nothing to whine about but much to be thankful for.

Keep in mind though, the results we desire take a little time. As we all know, what begins as an ugly duckling, often emerges as a beautiful swan.

Once again, to all of you guys and gals doing our dirty work, (or more accurately, W.R. Grace's) thank you and keep up the good work.
