Behind it was Little Blue Run Lake. It was a man made lake built in 1975. When I was little I remember my parents telling me it was once a town called Little Blue and the rubble was all that remained of it. Later, in 2003, my dad took us on a ride to show us this beautiful blue lake. What was unusual was that all the trees in it and around it were dead.
It was the largest coal ash impound in the United States. What is a Coal Ash Impound? Coal ash is the residual combustion in power plants that are captured by pollution control technology, such as scrubbers. It consists of fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag, flue gas desulfurization gypsum, and other byproducts and contains low concentrations of arsenic, selenium, lead, and mercury. After collection at a power plant, coal ash is often impounded in a surface storage pond or in a landfill. What are scrubbers? Scrubbers are an apparatus that cleans the gases passing through the smokestack of a coal-burning power plant. Due to Clean Air Act regulations, most scrubbers in U.S. coal plants are used to remove sulfur emissions from coal and lessen the formation of acid rain. There was (and perhaps still is) 20 billion gallons of coal ash and smokestack scrubber waste in the lake.

New this year with us was Cindy Burkett Willoughby, our crew psychic. She did readings for people and did two group readings during the event. As always, she was impressive. An illness with a family member too her away early, but we loved having her Thursday and Friday/
Cindy with us proved to be of great help. As she stood in front of the former Central School, she felt the presence of many souls, perhaps even a vortex. I was intrigued! We also investigated the former site of Smith Auto Parts Store. We had some good results there, too. We will be going back in the future to do some more work there.
