Go Larry! CNN Profiles OVEC Board Member for Defending the Planet

Congratulations to OVEC board member and Keeper of the Mountains founder Larry Gibson. In August, CNN ran a profile on Larry. "CNN Heroes: Larry Gibson Defending the Planet" chronicles Larrys effort to preserve Kayford Mountain, located near Cabin Creek, WV.

The segment premiered on "Anderson Cooper 360" on August 14 and was repeatedly run on both CNN and CNN Headline News for a couple of days.

CNNs website includes the on-air segment and extra features. Go to: edition.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2007/cnn.heroes/ and click on Larrys profile.

OVECs co-director Janet Keating told Heath Harrison of the Huntington Herald-Dispatch that Gibson has been involved with OVEC since our first public forum on mountaintop removal in 1997. She said Larry, like others who live in the shadow of mountaintop removal, is an ideal spokesman for the issue.

"The true experts are the ones who live with the problem," Keating said.
