Screening set for movie about Ohio coal plant

Coal plant

A screening of Cheshire, Ohio — a movie about how an Ohio community grappled with living near a coal plant — will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 8 at Riverbend Nature Center, 3600 North Green Bay Road.

The event is being sponsored by the Clean Power Coalition of Southeast Wisconsin, which is part of the Beyond Coal Campaign the Sierra Club is spearheading.

A number of neighbors living around the We Energies Oak Creek Power Plant have complained about the power plant over the last several years.

“There are a fair number of connections between what happened in Cheshire and what’s happening in Caledonia, so our coalition thought it would be interesting to have a discussion afterward featuring the producer (Eve Morgenstern) as well as local residents from the Caledonia area,” said Miranda Ehrlich, of the Sierra Club.
