Below is link to full newspaper article and first lines. I will post updates
as they appear.

On a personal note, I have mixed emotions. I am glad for what penalties are
there and it appears a real improvement over other events in Indiana. On the
other hand, I see no mention of jail time for the violators, which I think
would be _the_ serious deterrent.

Guide to pay $14.2 million for fish kill

Anderson company agrees to plead guilty to violating Clean Water Act in
connection with White River disaster.

June 18, 2001

Guide Corp. will pay $14.2 million and plead guilty to seven counts of
violating the Clean Water Act to settle criminal charges and state and
federal lawsuits in connection with a massive fish kill on the White River.

The terms of the plea agreement, if accepted by a federal judge, would result
in a $1.96 million fine, the largest ever imposed for an environmental crime
in the Southern District of Indiana, U.S. Attorney Timothy Morrison said.

Guide also would forfeit $1.96 million in one of the first cases ever in the
nation to include the use of forfeited assets to fight environmental crime,
Morrison said
