There's an oxymoron to describe this story. It's "old news". This story is at least two weeks old. Only boredom could force me to read about this one more time.

If Big Beth had gone straight to the plant supervisor, this would never have happened.

Man are you full of it. Trying to plead your bogus case to others?
They see your stupid posts like this one and the Sticky AngeIs nonesense on everyday for months.
You start your insane harrassment long before I post here. You think I'm suppose to let you get away with your garbage and say nothing?
Everyone who is a regular on this site knows better.
What's the matter, you can't take some of your own medicine you lying cry baby?
Just stops your cr@p and everything will be fine. You need some serious help from a shrink or a good attitude adjustment(beat down) might wake you up.
You are nothing but a wimp and a coward who only can try and get power from behind your PC.
That also goes for your foul mouthed idiot friend that got tossed off of here and is now in Littleton as well post his garbage.
You stop your Bs and I'll stop.
You are an embarrassment to your parents and to the rest of us who post here.
Knock off the BS. It's that simple! Can't that thick skull of yours understand that!
What a whiny loser!

He's getting desperate as you can see.
Don't listen to this Littleton creep. He thinks he owns this site and can get rid of people who he doesn't agree with. Who gives a chit how long he claim to be posting on here. That's a probably a lie as well. He is a pathelogical liar and his mind is really messed up. His Sticky AngeI posts prove that and he's been at it for months. What does that tell you? Others here just move on and mind their own business. That's because the are normal adults.
You can moniter all this for yourself and see who is the one who should be kicked off of here.
This dude is a fruitcake and a half!
I've never seen anything like it.

i cant beleive i didnt hear anything about the scathing 4 page letter that was sent personnaly to dick kelly from the csb. Write me at wra2001@hotmail.com if you want the rest of the letter.
here is part of it:

Dear Chairman Kelly:
The Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) has completed its investigation of the penstock fire that occurred at the Xcel Cabin Creek hydroelectric plant on October 2, 2007. The CSB intends to publish its final report and safety recommendations on August 25, 2010. A video describing the incident and the CSB’s findings will be released on the same date. The final report will include specific safety recommendations to Xcel, which I urge be implemented in order to prevent similar incidents in the future. While Xcel is one of several recommendation recipients in this case and one of hundreds in the CSB’s history, its actions in the aftermath of the tragedy have been unique in the 13-year experience of the CSB. Specifically, I wish to bring a number of troubling episodes to your attention, and ask you to consider whether these actions truly represent Xcel’s stated corporate values or the interests of its shareholders.
