And YES, I agree ONLY 125 good permanent jobs.

Massive construction project though, could bring in 2-5000 temp construction workers.

But when the smoke blows away, none of these massive plants will employ a FRACTION of what a labor-intensive industry like a steel plant employed.

Beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick but only a handful will benefit :(

This area has been industry deprived for so long, this may be the first good opportunity in a very long time for the valley to put its best foot forward when it comes to business. However, we are still still a long way off from this becoming a reality and I'm certainly not holding my breath...

Anyone who thinks they can do better is free to seek public office.

WWU,you're right.the public officials already in office should be working for the taxpayers[working group].we pay their wages,not the non-workers though they seem to benefit more.anybody on here that thinks the politicians are doing a great job hasn't been paying attention.they'll throw the commoners under the bus for a buck.

WWU; All I'm saying is being an armchair QB is easy pickings. Much, much harder to do the heavy lifting. If you(sic) want them to work harder, go to meetings, arrange townhalls, circulate petitions, ask for face-to-face meetings. Not saying you aren't involved in particular, I'm speaking in a general sense. In reality this is how much of public policy is shaped.

promo..none of them will do anything. it's much easier and safer to sit at home and complain. proving even more they are a burden on the rest of us. i mean look who it is..a dude or women who hears voices. a dude or woman who couldn't make it and ran to ca where she isn't doing any better. lol. the hate is funny.

Don't look now, but the company, Appalachian Resins, who's supposed to build this "ethane cracker" is officially labeled as a "start-up" company. They don't have any manufacturing facilities, and we don't think any regular, by-the-hour employees; just a handful of old Getty Oil people with a "plan", of some sort. On the other hand, there are one or two chemical plants in the Valley that could use an Ethane cracker's products. Maybe they'll provide the financing.
