Okay, this story has been up a couple hours. Isn't anyone going to say we could save those forty jobs by allowing industry unfettered right to dump toxic waste on to the local population. Somebody, please, tell us how this is Obama's war on coal and the EPA is his army of environazis determined to drive us into living in caves and wearing hemp clothing. Come on, I insist that someone point out that this is part of the great socialist agenda to destroy the greatness of this country. Do we or do we not have a right, given to us by God, to use every last drop of any possible resource?

brotherkenny, comment troll baiting much?? While I won't take the bait, I will offer that 2020 is plenty of time (maybe too much?) for the local community, ottertail & others to come up with other uses for the train operator that would go out of business if not for the "job creating" coal plant. And possibly plenty of time for ottertail to help sponsor retraining for those 40 plant workers who need to get out of that antiquated line of work?
