According to Greenpeace, Sierra Club and now the US EPA, the surrounding air and water will be much cleaner and cause less lung and cancer problems so is the trade off in cash worth it ????? You can decide... The rest of us contractors and employees are looking for a job in another STATE..

I agree there is no price on life but, if they are right, why do the retired plant and retired construction workers from the plant live to be 80 or so??? They have spent a lifetime and 40 year career wallering around in the raw coal, ash, slag and cinders???? !!! Does the community actually believe they are getting the worst of it from the air and water??? I DON'T..

swilson, I think the quality of life will decline when people begin to starve to death, too.

The big question is why two school districts, two school facilities, are less than four miles apart and still maintain competing systems for tax dollars and resources, more or less because of athletic programs. I know some residents of the valley who lived in the shadow of that power plant; they wouldn't eat what came out of the ground on the down wind side of those stacks--not the beef cattle, certainly not the milk that came from their livestock. I remember the late Harry Breen, in Warwood, W.Va. talking to my dad about that new power plant in Beverly and the proposed addition. Mr. Breen had been a superintendent at one of those pre WWII power plants in the Wheeling area--he could see the hand writing on the wall; they were old and obsolete. Ditto for Philo, the same for that Beverly plant; little was done in the Mid Ohio Valley region to plan for the future. Now that future has arrived.
