Megan Quinn with sportsturf.com recently posted and article that told us the following: “In North America, about 98% of artificial turf fields use shredded recycled tire rubber, or crumb rubber. The granules occupy the space amid the synthetic grass to provide cushioning, assist in drainage, and help limit injuries. Some people have concerns about whether crumb rubber is safe. There are more than 70 studies reviews from health departments, higher education, and others worldwide. None of the results indicate this is a health or environmental problem. Some environmental factions worry about chemicals in tire rubber causing cancer or other health issues thus are asking schools, cities, and such to ban crumb rubber usage. Many organizations have looked into crumb rubber’s possible health and environmental concerns. Some research has considered if crumb rubber releases chemicals into the air. The studies have found evidence to not be present.

A 2013 study by Rutgers RW Johnson Medical School in NJ checked for exposure to trace metals, semi-volatile organic compounds, and hydrocarbons from crumb rubber and the turf fibers. Researchers measured this against factors in virtual body fluids representing digestive fluids, lung fluids, and perspiration. They found that PAHs were routinely below detection limits, and SVOCs were too low to quantify. Some metals were detected, but researchers said the concentrations were low and likely wouldn’t cause health issues.

In 2013, ChemRisk led a review for the Rubber Manufacturers Association to gauge the health & eco-concerns associated with the use of recycled scrap rubber on playgrounds & sports fields. While some of the ingredients used in tire manufacturing are considered to be possibly hazardous to human health, the potential for an athlete or childs exposure is very low. After reviewing studies from both supporters and opponents of crumb rubber, ChemRisk concludes that no adverse human health are likely to result from reusing tire material.

Al Garver, president of the Synthetic Turf Council, says STC encourages the calls for more technical studies and testing. Auto recyclers & rubber manufacturers thin science is on their side. Over 70 independent studies conducted over the have offered clear evidence. Recently in Edmonds, WA, they put an 18-month hold on installation of new fields made with the rubber infill from scrap tires. Residents protested the local school district’s plans to take out the old grass field at a school and put in synthetic turf. Patrick Doherty, of the city’s economic development & community services, says new field construction was underway when people learned the new field would have this rubber infill, so laborers completed the project prior to the protests to stop the installation. Due to community concern, other such projects were halted. Communities and organizers have a right to weight their options whether to use crumb rubber or something else on their fields. People should read the studies to make the decisions instead of listening to public perception.” The full article is available here.

Apparently the US government is playing “watchdog” on the auto lending industry lately. In the July 11, 2016 edition of the WSJ, Andrew Ackerman posted a story titled ‘U.S. Regulator Flags Auto-Lending Risks’ with the following details: “A U.S. banking representative warned about growing credit risk in the automobile-lending sector, raising the possibility of fresh regulatory pressure in the area. The Office of the Comptroller, which oversees large national banks which includes many of the biggest banking firms in the U.S., highlighted the risks in its bi-annual report.

The OCC said auto-lending risk is heightening “because of notable & unprecedented growth across all types of lenders. As banks have fought for market share, some banks have gone with less stringent underwriting standards, the report said. The report indicated the role of indirect auto lending, in which banks offer cash to auto dealerships, who in turn lend to consumers. The report said indirect lending reflects “an area of significant fair lending risk” amid fast growth. Comptroller of the Currency, Mr. Thomas Curry had raised the red flag once before about auto lending, making an analogy between it and the mortgage crisis.

Automotive lending has spiked in recent years with historically lower interest rates, inexpensive gas and stronger consumer demand. Auto loans even performed pretty well during the financial crisis, which market observers have viewed as a sign that the loans are safe because even low income households must pay for transportation. Auto lenders also have an easier time obtaining collateral on a past due auto loan—by repossessing the vehicle—than they do foreclosing on a house covered by a failing mortgage.” The complete article is available at this link.

The March 16, 2016 edition of wsaz.com had an article posted by Andrew Colegrove titled ‘Huntington PD to target abandoned, junked vehicles’ with the following highlights: “Officials in Huntington say they’ll be making an extra effort now to tow away abandoned & junked vehicles. Jason Paynter is tired of cars on his street along Piedmont Rd that have been parked for years. Paynter says it’s bad for rodents, insects and looks. Complaints like his are leading the community to take action. Mayor Steve Williams says residents have pointed out cars that have been sitting for extended periods of time. Williams fells that the city is pretty for this. On May 1, officials will sweep through each neighborhood & tow away abandoned or junk vehicles parked on a public or private property. Police say if an abandoned or junk car is on private property, the property owner has 30 days to move or restore it.

Paynter says he’s looking forward to vehicles with no hope of restoration disappearing, saying he doesn’t know why people would want to just leave a car sitting around. Police say once a vehicle is identified, a notification card will be placed on the vehicle, and the owner will have 48 hours to move it. Capt. Hank Dial wants owners to remove the vehicles and requests that citizens provide information about such vehicles. Dial says we will continue towing abandoned & junked vehicles leading up to May 1, so we don’t want the public to perceive the next 6 weeks as an amnesty period. If you’d like to report an abandoned or junked vehicle, you can call 304-696-5980 or email to traffic@hpdwv.com.” The full article and video are available at this link.

We won’t make any West Virginia “hillbilly” type jokes in this forum! In all seriousness, I am perplexed why anyone would want to leave a damaged car, wrecked vehicle or other clunker sitting around in plain sight. We commend the leaders of Huntington for taking this decisive action on removing these unwanted cars, trucks and vans from the region.
