At the Wednesday night, March 14, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection hearing in Homer City on the proposed scrubbers at the Homer City Power Plant, I was among the small group of community members who, thanks to inflammatory remarks from state Sen. Don White, R-Indiana, had to be escorted to the parking lot by security guards for our own protection.
Before that, I heard speaker after speaker state what I know is true -- that folks in Indiana County are hard-working, skilled people who deserve family-wage jobs. I live in Indiana with my family. I support community growth and organized labor, and I appreciate that nothing builds community like good jobs.
