Getting It Right
I got a phone call today from Tim Shook, who took issue with what Gossips reported in "Déjà Vu All Over Again?" His problem was not so much with Gossips as with the Register-Star, whose article, he said, misrepresented the position of Hudson Valley Common Sense. The Register-Star reported--and Gossips repeated--that Shook is "especially interested in Congressman Chris Gibson’s support for locating nuclear power plants north and south of Albany and lauds this as a viable industry for Columbia County." Shook denies that Hudson Valley Common Sense supports nuclear power plants. According to him, his organization's position is expressed by this question: "What's best for the Hudson Valley--green technology or nuclear power plants?" When asked which alternative HVCS favored, Shook said, "We're going to go with what the community wants."
