    I was told they didn't know where those prices came from when I asked but I'd still like to know if that poster was compensated after the offer.

    Patch, the updates getting national coverage. When you type in "imprelis" in google, this is the site with all the information. Have close to 8000 looks, I'm sure the majority aren't LCO's. The latest story being Dupont not mailing checks for offers back in March.

    I do, but waiting to see my offer before I go forward with media story. If I see something positive in their process with me then I won't proceed with national media. I have connections at two of the big four broadcast nets. At this point I feel I must be careful going completely public and will not unless the claims process is junk and I hire a law firm. Then, I'll have to have an attorney with me if I do a story to make sure nothing creates a problem for my case, if it comes to that. Getting all my ducks lined up though.

    I have considered calling our News channel in the Cleveland area. Starbuy would be familiar with Carl Monday from the 19 action news he investigates stories to help get to the bottom of them. I have some contacts with someone who used to be in the news room that I could possibly in turn have Carl Monday come out and do a story on our trees and maybe if Starbuy would be willing to let them interview him also and show his trees, since he is in the area....could possibly rattle some things on Duponts end if it hits the news and could possibly travel beyond Cleveland news?

    I agree Starbuy, it's better to wait and see what the offer is before going to the media. But something to consider for us since we are close to one another to have both our stories heard, power in numbers!!!!!

    Carl is a good investigative reporter. But, I'm also thinking 60 Minutes especially if more people who signed agreements don't actually get compensated in a timely manner and if the EPA's meeting in June comes out with anything interesting. I also think an investigation into the EPA's testing and their allowance for this to go to market to be used on residential properties and not just commercial properties speaks volumes on the EPA. But, they'll probably end up getting millions from fining Dupont even though they permitted this in a limited way. I'll give this some time and give Dupont a little more time for redemption in this matter. But, I've got plenty of HD video documentation on the progress thus far.

    Tree Lover, as Cindy mentioned we think your private message option in your account is not turned on so that you can receive private messages on this site. I would like to PM you something if you don't mind.

    When you're logged in click on your name at the top right corner of site, then look for CP (left side of your account page I believe), then click on Options in the left column. That takes you to a page where you can click a box to allow private messages.

    I apologize, it's looks as though I do not have permission to turn on PM?
    there is not option to turn on or off in my control panel options?
    I may need to contact site to see if I can do so.
    I don't believe I can PM you either to contact you.
    See what I can do in the meantime.
