    I went to cannelton on the 20th to try and catch some cats and I hadnt much more than got there and some guys came up behind me and said they were there to mark spots for drilling for the power plant project.I told them I hated to see it happen because it was one of the best bank spots to fish but its getting ready to start..What really gets me is I was told that the electric is going to go up north so the local people wont even get to use it!:confused2:I dont know if thats true or not but if it is its throwing salt in the wound!!:angry:I guess on the upside it will create some local jobs but I sure will hate when they close the bank fishing down on the Ky side.

    I talked to one of the boys down there that was drilling and he seem to think it would be a long time before public access was cut off. but he did say that they would more than likely baracade around the few areas they will be working in . but all in all it is comming to a end down there with out a boat before long.
