NFC: Whiter River Fish Kill - interesting angle in today's paper
Below is link to article in the business section of the Indianapolis Star
The interesting point is not so much the resignation of the chairman but the
theory that Guide Corp.'s owner might simply allow the company to go bankrupt
to avoid financial responsibility.
Not surprising, I suppose. The denial, while it could be accurate, is not
surprising either. In my many years in the business world, my experiences
have taught me that many business people and consumers alike unflinchingly
will lie about past acts and future intentions.
On a personal note, if this turns out to be true, clearly financial losses
are not sufficient to protect the environment and making people act in
responsible, ethical ways. Perhaps effective, enforced laws that put
executives and owners in jail for sufficient time are in order.

Guide chief says exit not tied to river spill
By Ted Evanoff
December 23, 2000
DETROIT -- A lot of people in Indiana wonder if the White River chemical
spill set in motion Dennis Pawley's resignation as chairman of Anderson auto
parts maker Guide Corp.
The Environmental Protection Agency and the city of Anderson have filed
separate lawsuits linking last December's river disaster to Guide's factories
in Madison County.
