Last week, Governor Allen intervened to keep the E-P-A from listing the Radford Army Ammunition Plant as a Superfund site.
That designation would have put the arsenal on the national priority list for environmental cleanup.
But plant officials say cleaning up hazardous sites is already a priority. Tracy Altizer reports.

A Review Board concluded this month that Rick Neaton misappropriated 5-thousand dollars from Soering, lied to him about lining up witnesses, and falsified documents.
His Michigan law license was suspended for four years.
Neaton unsuccessfully defended the German-born U-V-a honor student as an accomplice in the murder of Derek and Nancy Haysom in the mid-80's.

One member of the Michigan hearing panel argued Neaton's license should be REVOKED, not just suspended.
Either way, Soering believes he deserves a new trial.
Neaton told the Charlottesville "Daily Progress:"
"Jens is in prison, because he made a conscious decision to help Elizabeth Haysom. I was his lawyer," Neaton said, "not his magician,"
