   This conversarion It happened this morning between residents of Lake of the Ozarks, their valiant US Senator McCaskill and the same ole FERC crew.   It’s an hour long but you will see parallels and get a sense of where we (you) are headed. In some areas we are ahead of this curve, in others we’re behind here at SML

    I called Senator McCaskill's legislative aid and explained that if she were to replace "AmerenUE" with "Appalachian Power" and substitute "Smith Mountain Lake" for "Lake of the Ozarks" in this broadcast, the story fits us like a glove. Heavy handed power company threatening those who cannot afford to defend themselves, the same fight over easement deeds, the same FERC saying it's the other guy's problem, the same unsupported additional burdensome and costly regulation with no benefit, the same shifting of the cost burden to property owners by the power company. There is no coincidence here -- this is a orchestrated plan to empower licensees to Steal My (Your) Property rights.

    I think we need to call and encourage our members of Congress to hold oversight hearings and ask to testify at those hearings ... under the bright lights of the Capitol hearing room, I sincerely hope these abuses cannot survive.
