A Right to Quiet

A couple of West Virginia housewives-cum-activists are trying to get a noise ordinance passed in their hometown of Stephens in Wise County. They would like to limit the 20+ hour per day blasting from the mining operation that looms above their town to 15 hours per day, 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on weekdays and on Sundays, the noise couldn’t start until 10:00 a.m. Anti-mountaintop removal activists throughout Southern Appalachian are looking on with interest to see how this plays out. The Roanoke Times has the rest of the story.
