Former Magazine Distributors, Inc. employee Liam Neville shows some of the photographs he received under a Freedom of Information request regarding his old workplace in Hicksville: workers in Haz-Mat suits, unearthed tanks full of radioactive sludge and unidentified glowing blue-green fluids coming from the soil, among others. Neville and many others who worked at the site have developed rare cancers. Unknown to them was that nuclear fuel rods were fabricated and processed there in the 1950s and 1960s. County, state and federal regulators never told them, nor did MDI's owners or GTE and Verizon, its current owners.
