The article focuses on $140,000 in proposed fines on Titan Tire Corp. for alleged safety violations at its Bryan, Ohio-based off-the-road tire plant, in addition to fines of $24,500, a federal agency imposed a few days earlier. Titan chief executive officer (CEO) Morry Taylor, said that the fines were levied unfairly and based on personal vendetta of an Occupational Safety and Health Administration inspector against the company.
