especially at some of the bigger sites, we need somewhere between six to eight volunteers and i've been working on site."

the reno police department released pictures of the suspects. they're described as two black men-- 6'1" to 6'2" with heavy builds. according to police, the suspects broke the lower part of the front door and loaded high end wines and liquor into a ford f-one-50. and police say this is not the first time the suspects robbed a total wine and spirits. "we do have information that in california, arizona and las vegas that similar incidents that happened here on sunday morning have occurred at other total wine businesses." total wine and spirits is calculating the damages, and has yet to release a dollar amount. if you have any information on this robbery call secret witness at 322-4900. for decades, the anaconda mine near yerington produced copper by the ton. but, operators left behind toxic tailings-- containing uranium and heavy metals, and acidic remnants of the mining process. as kolo 8 news now's ed pearce reports,
controversy. 00-:12 :123-:17 :17-1:17 almost since the last operator pulled out, the old mine has worried and divided some of its neighbors. ten years ago, some were already pressing for a clean up. pauley: "we're not for superfund necessarily, but if that's what's needed to make us safe, it's what we'll fight for." the blm closed the site to the public and a lawsuit was filed. atlantic richfield which had operated the mine after anaconda left, assumed responsibility for managing the mine as a superfund site. tailings were covered to keep toxic dust from blowing into the surrounding valley and ponds containing a highly acidic solution were lined, but those ponds are filling with sediment and it's estimated they could overflow into the ground water by 2019. and the company which created this particular problem is long gone. so the epa wants to put it on their national priority list which could mean the feds would pick up 90 percent of the cost. there have always been those
about the impact the superfund designation would have on property values and economic development. the possibility of this new listing has renewed those fears. so the local community and the governor are asking the epa to give them more time to find alternative sources of funding. that was ed pearce reporting. in order to put the site in line for funding before that 2019 deadline, the process would have to start this year. the governor is asking them to hold off until september-- giving them time to look elsewhere for the money.
