So it appears that all of the controversy was much ado about nothing now.

From the way I see it those folks that moaned and planted signs opposing the thing should be very happy now. So, what did this do to the local economy. Instead of breaking ground in Mecklenburg County in January Osage will be breaking ground in South Carolina. Instead of spending 150 million in construction in the Chase City area they will spend that money hundreds of miles from Chase City. Instead of buying gas, food, supplies, groceries, renting ore buying homes here they will do that elsewhere. Instead of putting and industrial waterline here they won't. Instead of buying $100,000.00 of Chase City "brown water" the town can now continue in the red. Break out the fireworks all of you antis, you have reason to celebrate. Anyone want to watch as the ship, Chase City, slowly sinks. And this time we can't blame the officials of CC. They tried like the devil to get this here.
