The officials who control Cleveland Public Power this week will decide whether to tie the utility to the coal industry for the next 50 years. Cleveland isn't alone in this decision. About 70 other municipal utilities across the state, including Oberlin, are considering joining the same project--a proposed 960-megawatt coal-fired plant in Southern Ohio to be built by American Municipal Power-Ohio (AMP-Ohio). Backers say it will be the cleanest coal plant built. Critics are calling for more attention to alternatives to coal. Monday morning at 9, we'll let you make up your mind.
