OV invites public to remember 1988 protests

SOUTH OTSELIC – In 1988, the Otselic Valley community was embroiled in a heated battle to keep low level radioactive waste sites out of the area. This Saturday, seniors in Michael Foor-Pessin’s communications class at Otselic Valley Central School are inviting the public to attend an open house and share their memories of the communities efforts.

The communications class, with the help of Foor-Pessin and librarian Sue LeBlanc, has begun work on a year-long project to document the communities efforts in fighting to keep the radioactive waste facilities out of the area and out of the state. By the end of the year, they hope to have compiled enough information to write a research paper and hopefully to produce a documentary on the subject.
