Truck traffic on Route 30 is a nuisance and the plant in West Point pollutes the environment. Yes the paper plant employees KW residents, but it still pollutes the air and the river. I should remind the group of what 30k plus fine levied on RockTenn in Sept. by the Water Control Board for their friendly environmental practices. So what I am hearing is if it pollutes legally under the EPA - such as RockTenn - look the other way if it produces enough jobs and tax revenue? Paper mills are the third largest polluters in the country. You still are failing to see the point - OK for pollution in one area - not OK for pollution in another area in KW. That is sulfur dioxide you are smelling in the air - and yes do your research it contributes to acid rain. What about the past fines at the location? You think they came from violations of "nothing is wrong". The discharge in the river - what do you call it? Its regulated pollution. Yes the paper plant employees KW residents, but at what cost to the environment as the industry still pollutes the air and the river.

Rocktenn the "new owner" of the mill.. Its just a matter of time before the new owner formally announces their new plans. Unfortunately, most KW residents will not like what they will be hearing. Unfortunately, the plant's current capacity etc. is not going to be forever - research the paper industry. Also the USW is well on its way to negatively impacting the members it represents

Ha. You still make me laugh. So do you want jobs and development or not? Or are you just endorsing "green" initiatives, i.e., a LIBERAL agenda?????????? Oh my!!! What will your neighbors think??

So I say I am concerned about the environment where I own land - and the welfare of KW - and you take it as a joke?

Perhaps you should try being sincere?
