The Free Press has run two important pieces of environmental journalism in
the last 2 days.

The company that owns the Riverview plant where a fire killed three workers
Saturday has had other problems with chemical leaks and environmental
accidents at some of its facilities nationwide, but local officials say the
Downriver plant has a good record.

Lawn-care companies get spotty regulation:  Only 16 state inspectors oversee
use of
pesticides.
