Simple fact is they DON'T own the riverfront. They tried throwing money around, but it didn't work. They can bully and bluster all they want, but they have no right to transport any of their toxic materials over, under or through another person's private property. This plant will NEVER be barging out of this location, so hit the road Jack.

How many jobs is this place supposed to bring? I believe I read an article from this paper before that showed it would be minimal. In the same article, the company requested a waiver on their required parking spaces because they were not going to need that many due to the limited employees. If it is minimal jobs, I wonder if they would hire locals or bring in out of towners, as it seems so many others that are supposed to create jobs here actually do. In some of these companies defenses though, they do say it is becasue the people applying can not pass a drug test which is a shame if it is true.

Wheeling doesn't need any new plants. The sheeple are perfectly content selling each other pizzas.

Personally, I'd put a whole lot more stock in the Coast Guard saying something is perfectly safe than in a bunch of wacko alarmists, who criticize everything because they already get their social security checks, and don't have to worry about making a living. Would this plant actually make the "residential" area involved look worse?
