Complaint filed over Bellows dump
A group alleges that the Air Force has not listened to concerns 
By Diana Leone

After almost a year of impasse, the two sides of a dispute over what to 
do with a World War II-era dump at Bellows Air Force Station may start 
talking to each other this week.

Jim Andrews, community co-chairman of a Restoration Advisory Board for 
cleanup projects at Bellows, announced yesterday that he is filing 
formal complaints with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and 
Department of Justice regarding what he says were instances of 
discrimination against him by the Air Force.

Andrews said yesterday that the Air Force hasn't listened to him or the 
Waimanalo community he represents since they objected last April to what 
the Air Force wanted to do: cover the one-acre dump with two feet of 
soil and plant grass over it.
