Cement plant battle hits Page One

The Sunday, June 2nd edition of The Albany-Times includes a four-page spread on the St. Lawrence Cement "Greenport project," starting on the front page. Just a few of the headlines from the special report, many of them quoting directly from the company's own application:

"Levels of 7 pollutants would rise" (p. A10)

Plume: "In winter, it could be up to six miles long" (p. A9)

"The proposed cement plant plant would be a highly dominant visual element." (p. A9)

"Development of the proposed project would increase traffic in the surrounding area" (p. A10)

"In total, there is no net new spending in the regional economy in the future" (p. A11)
