CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Any company with the words "Certifably cracked" on its boxes has got to be nuts ... or at least full of personality. And Chappaqua-based bobbysue's nuts!, with its exclamation point at the end of its name and the tagline ...

What Sue Dolsen says is absolutely true. Sad that an agency such as FERC eats up so much of our tax dollars as a "regulatory agency" and acts as no more than a rubber stamp for the energy industry. Wonder why congress is not interested in cutting their funding? Look at their list of political campaign contributors.
Thank goodness the adults are in charge.
Your count of 1,000 workers is interesting. Do you have some verification of this number? Certainly the plant does not hire 1,000 people on a regular basis. They have been steadily reducing the work force as the corporation continues to fall on hard times with increased competition from the market place.You may recall that Entergy fired quite a few people a few months ago because they had to retrench.
The tone of the your article and that of most of the business community is all about numbers and profits. That is understandable since you cannot continue to run a business without a profit. However, with Indian Point there are a lot of items left off of the balance sheet. One of the biggest is the human cost of mining for the fuel that powers the reactors - uranium.
It is hard for me to believe that decent people would just scoff and dismiss this issue if they actually knew what was happening out West to Native Americans and their allies who suffer from the effects of mining for uranium and the enormous piles of radioactive rocks that are left from processing.
Perhaps you don't believe me or think that I am exaggerating. Well, here is an opportunity meet people who actually live in communities affected by uranium. Leona Morgan, Klee Benally and Jennifer Thurston will be telling the real story of what it is like in communities impacted by uranium.
It is an open public meeting and you are welcome to come, listen to them and ask them questions. It will be held this Sunday, March 8, 3:00 PM at the Peekskill Presbyterian Church, 705 South Street.
One question I would pose to your readers is this. Is it fair for our community to keep Indian Point running when part of the fuel cycle creates so much misery for others. Is it moral to just look away or does this need to be part of the balance sheet when we reckon up the costs of running the plant?
