Stink and Cherry, Quite Contrary


How does Fred Heebe's garden grow? With landfill smells where intrigue swells, and fall guys seem lined up in a row. In this weekend's edition, The Times-Picayune offers diverging portraits of the man who owns the controversial River Birch Landfill in Waggaman. Yesterday, Heebe's St. Charles Ave. gardens were featured in Da Paper's InsideOut section. Today, his role as landfill owner and possible co-conspirator in a deal with a former state official is probed in a lengthy investigative report about the stank in the local waste business after K.  

 

Given that a federal investigation surrounding River Birch has already resulted in a federal indictment, the irony of Heebe's willingness to throw open the gates for a writer and photographer haven't been lost. NoDef favorites Slabbed add a new wrinkle to the story by introducing the mystery of some missing nola.com comments on the investigative piece.
