How the SWMA fiasco happened courtesy of Stephen Bradley & BARD.
It seems anywhere Bradley goes controversy and corruption are right there with his presence.

The writer hits the nail on the head when he writes how Langford succeeded in distracting more attention from this SWMA issue. Bradley and WRQ are doing the same thing here in Vincent on many levels; DISTRACTING ATTENTION FROM THE REAL STORY & ISSUES.
At the time this happened these members sat on the JeffCo Commission:
President: Larry "Let's do something" Lanford (convicted of multiple corruption charges, IN PRISON) He was "doing something" alright and got caught.
Mary Miller Buckelew: the ring leader for BARD & Bradley (convicted of multiple corruption charges. She should have gone to prison, but got three years probation.)
Gary White: (convicted of multiple corruption charges, UPDATE March 2010: In December, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated White's 2008 convictions on conspiracy and bribery, and returned the case to U.S. District Court in Birmingham for sentencing. No sentencing date has been set.) Mr White is "whining" he cannot afford a lawyer. We have no sympathy for him and hope he winds up as Langford's bunk mate where he belongs.
Sheila Smoot:Other than being a news reporter, there wasn't much else on her resume that qualified her to be a County Commissioner.
Bettye "oh so fine" Collins: she's had enough and is retiring.
3 of the 5 original "players" are convicted crooks.
We would relish deja vu to come around and replace these names with the Vincent and Shelby County officials we strongly suspect of the same type of corruption in this quarry proposal.
POLITICAL CORRUPTION IS A NATIONWIDE ISSUE AFFECTING ALL OF US. ALABAMA RANKS #5 AS THE MOST CORRUPT STATE. *DOJ 2007 stats
Something is very wrong in the Land of Cotton

NO OTHER COMMUNITY, RICH OR POOR, URBAN OR SUBURBAN,BLACK, BROWN,RED, YELLOW OR WHITE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO BECOME AN "ENVIRONMENTAL SACRIFICE ZONE."
