Chesapeake Bay battle in Shenandoah Valley?

Reporter Bob Stuart with the Waynesboro News Virginian has triple front page articles today concerning the Chesapeake Bay and the Shenandoah Valley ... and the EPA's pollution regulations that threaten to break the financial backs of farmers and communities.

The in-depth look includes an editorial also questioning the Environmental Protection Agency's newest proposed regulations. This is a subject that has been talked about at meetings, at gatherings of farmers, and with politicians as citizens try to understand the latest wave of overreaching government.

The following articles are worth reading for everyone:

- Bay battle brewing: EPA pollution regulations raise cost questions
- Ag industry balks at proposal
- Fishermen lament their losses
- Editorial: Hide! It's the EPA! - p. A4 hard copy (couldn't find online)

Kudos to Mr. Stuart and the News Virginian for looking into an issue that is being talked about by many.
