Parker Naylor, on his property on I-70 Drive N.E., in Columbia, Mo., Wednesday, June 4, 2008, talks about the tires that have been illegal dumped there. A day after a rainy day, he is about mosquitoes, that could possibly carry West Nile virus, that may breed around the tires. He has owned the land since 1990 and the tires have been there more than 30 years. He is waiting for the Department of Natural Resources to send people to his property to get rid of the tires. He had expected the cleaning up work to be done last summer, but now he’s not sure if it will even get done this year.
