Junki Yoshida has been in the US for about 40 years and is a US citizen.  His company HQ is in the same county in Oregon as Troutdale.

And Subby, if you're disturbed by the idea of developing on land that was once used for distasteful purposes, never visit NYC, Boston, Annapolis, Chicago, London, Rome, Paris...

The best example of that is the United Nations. Built on top of former stockyards where millions of livestock were slaughtered and butchered over the course of decades if not centuries. You be the judge of how much slaughtering and butchering the UN has been effective at preventing, given that it is totally haunted by the millions and millions of animal ghosts, and no doubt some human ones as well that it is built over.

I think you may have missed this part of the article;

"
Eastwind's first priority is to rid the property of all those sheep carcasses, which accumulated while a sheep "pullery" operated on the site from a period of roughly the 1920s until as recently as the 1960s, Wand said. His own grandfather worked for a short time at the company, where wool was salvaged from dead sheep that were unfit to sell as meat. The carcasses were buried on location. Wand put the number in the many thousands.

The company dug a test pit and found that after a half century or more underground, the animal remains have formed a gelatinous goo under a thick layer of dirt, Wand said.

The material isn't toxic, Wand said. But he added: "You don't want to build over jiggly stuff that might not support a parking lot or building foundation.""

gravy chugging cretin Oh, I read that part. I don't know if the gooey sheep remains are haunted. Or if it could have use as pink slime meat extender or petroleum byproducts. But yes I read it.🌞
