When I first came to Bokoshe and started to meet the locals I was startled to realize that these folks had been told that fly ash was much like crushed limestone and used to manufacture make-up.
Tim Tanksley, a lifetime Bokoske resident says: "When they had the first meetings about this stuff, they told us it was just dirt, you could put it on your peanut butter and jelly sandwich and it wouldn't hurt you, so nobody thought too much about it."
I don't know about you, but there is no way I'm eating anything that has Mercury, Lead, and Arsenic in it.
