Coal Terminal: Update on Developments

Joel Connelly has weighed in on the Coal Terminal issue in the Seattle P-I.

John Stark just posted 2 articles on this subject in the Bellingham Herald.
The first relates to SSA's response to its unauthorized clearing on its property at Cherry Point.

The second announces the breakdown of discussions between SSA and a coalition of public interest groups over modifying an agreement initially completed 12 years ago regarding an earlier terminal proposed for Cherry Point.

Both these developments are troubling, since they seem to reflect a consistent arrogance and disdainful attitude on the part of SSA.

Now, a third posting by Stark reveals Whatcom County communications to SSA's contractor regarding clearing at Cherry Point.

And now, Carl Weimer's request for info from County Planning.

Also, I just got a phone survey call from a number in area code 253.
Two questions; Was I aware of the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal, and was I in favor of it or against.
That's it, short and sweet.

Think this thing is heating up?
