Youall are not the only ones worried about this company's project and it's not the only project,either.Take a look at their project overview map.Two of these lines involve our state,and,the Plains/eastern one will involve a lot more than some woods.It will cross the ENTIRE STATE and come through some of the most productive farm ground in the nation to link up to TVA.What about that? We don't like it either! We make our living off of the land that they are wanting to stick this crap on.The entire state needs to be one voice and tell them to go put their junk up elsewhere because Arkansas won't be their dump ground to make a buck off of anymore.the natural gas people have already been allowed to have their heyday,much to the regret of some landowners who wish now they'd never seen or heard of any of them.

#2 Apr 18, 2013 you want to return to the days of heating with firewood and using oil lamps for lighting?

If you use electricity, that power has to be transmitted from the power plant to your home over power lines. Those lines cross many people's property on its way to your home.

Be thankful we have electricity. Without it, our lives would be much more difficult.

hmmm,do you want to return to the days of trying to hunt and grow your own food? Last time I was in Eureka Springs and all over Arkansas in most areas,matter of fact,rural as well as cities,I didn't notice any kerosene or gas lights and places heated with wood stoves.

This is not about ordinary power lines/utility poles,DUH.

Benton and Carroll counties are a long, long way from Trumann. The proposed power line doesn't affect you in any way.

Why don't you spend your time and energy trying to clean up Trumann's drug problem rather than worrying about a power line hundreds of miles away?
