In front of the billboard

Members of the Madison County Clean Power Coalition stand in front of a billboard protesting Georgia Renewable Power on Hwy. 72. Pictured (L-R) are Cheryl Adams, Alan Johnson, Gina Ward, Cindi Johnson, Drago Tesanovich, Ruth Ann Tesanovich and Dave Ramsey.

Local citizens angered by Georgia Renewable Power (GRP) in Colbert have taken their fight to the highway — or a billboard to be exact.

The Madison County Clean Power Coalition (MCCPC) has put up a billboard on Hwy. 72 for motorists to see as they enter Colbert. It reads: “Danger zone: GRP is polluting this area…air, water, land, noise, light.”

Great fact-checking, Ms. Jones! While our Madison County journalists work hard to cover our county, this news source needs additional journalists to cover it thoroughly enough, like an investigative reporter. Instead, residents have to fill that job and Ms. Jones along with the Clean Power Coalition has done that exceedingly well.
