It all comes down to this.    Hello LEO Suppoyrers. It seems our 3 year local fight to stop the coal ash landfill regulations from clearing the way for Ameren is about to hit a landmark date. THIS FRIDAY MORNING A CIRCUIT JUDGE WILL DECIDE IF THE FRANKLIN COUNTY COMMISSION UTILITY LANDFILL REGULATIONS ARE VALID. […]

This month’s newsletter from the Labadie Environmental Organization (LEO) has some interesting stories regarding Ameren and their impact on your health.  Did you know a recent study states that the Ameren Labadie plant is causing up to 290 premature deaths per year? On a lighter note, your truly is this month’s guest blogger with my […]

A bipartisan group from the Labadie Environmental Organization (LEO) took a trip up to the state capitol this week to lobby our local representatives to support a resolution that would require the groundwater around the Ameren Coal plant to be tested and monitored more effectively.

He’s just beside himself, you see, because an “unnamed representative” (presumably Rep. Scott […]

On Friday evening the owners of 3 Brothers in Labadie provided free appetizers to LEO members as appreciation for all their hard work in the community. I was just settling in to my first Sapphire martini when who should sit down next to me but the curious Don Meyer. Don ran as a Democrat in […]

We got a good look at where Ameren is proposing its coal ash landfill in the Labadie Bottoms flood way. It’s one thing to discuss the landfill in the abstract. It’s quite another to […]
