"Never meaning what they say."
Below are two articles from Washington County, Illinois. Where our investment in Prairie State Energy Campus just happens to be. As you read the articles, remember these people were promised that no coal ash would be placed in Washington County. What happened Prairie State?
As Painesville is a part owner in this project, were we aware that this promise was made and then broke? 720 acres.... that will have deposited on it are the remains of "clean coal."
How will this end? Want to bet on another lawsuit? Although you will never get charged for this directly, you can bet AMP-OHIO will include it in their bill sorta like the "power factor". It's included but you will not see it directly.
As you read these articles, you have to wonder what was promised to Painesville, and will they change those conditions?
A lot of comments have been made on the business practices of local businessman Bob Gibbs. I can assure you he never deposited coal ash 250 feet tall to cover 720 acres. Tell me who is showing man's inhumanity to man now?
Get into the game Painesville!
I guess we're all "Gamers" now?

Please attend Washington County Board meeting about coal ash landfill
June 24, 2012
Special meeting of the Washington County Board
Tuesday, June 26th at 7p.m.
Washington Coounty Courthouse in Nashville
After stating on the record in 2005 that there would be No coal ash landfill in Washington County, Prairie State is now asking for a permit from the Washington County Board to dump coal ash onto a 720 acre tract adjacent to the plant just south of the Biddleborn church. This toxic ash pile will eventually be over 250 feet tall with nothing to prevent contaminated dust from blowing onto property and into homes near and far. And, contaminated water leaching into creeks and ground water will always be a threat.
Please attend the meeting on June 26 at 7 p.m. and/or call your county board representative to tell them:
1) You don’t want a toxic waste dump in Washington County.
2) Don’t sell out the residents of Washington County. Oppose the coal ash landfill.
3) Prairie State already has two permitted sites which are NOT near homes.
Please consider going the extra mile and notify your friends and neighbors in Washington County about this important issue.
Thank you so much.
