This is coal country. In Cheshire, Ohio, that went one step further when American Electric Power did a 20 million-dollar deal to buy the town after their coal plant begins emitting a blue-plume. But not all their residents were ready to move. A gun toting 83-year old for one. Now only a few residents remain and they continue their fight for their health, the environment and their home.
