Kay Kiker speaks against chemical weapon demilitarization by way of an incinerator during a debate at Jacksonville State University. Kay Kiker, who started the West Alabama Community Action Network, lived in Sumter County near the hazardous waste landfill at Emelle. She cited the negative impact of the toxic waste dump as an example of why the state should refuse the incinerator, which she believed would have a similar impact on the state. This photograph was not published in the newspaper, but the article about the debate, which indicates Ms. Kiker's opinion on the subject, was published in The Anniston Star on February 1, 1994.
