    I have seen reports that only 20 people were employed at the plant - therefore at most 60 people would be affected (the others being staff at local restaurants and shops whose jobs result from serving workers and other services directly for them). I believe the population of West is @ 1500 so the economic effect on the town should hopefully be negligible. Short and medium term the repairs and rebuilding might even have a positive economic effect on the town.

    We will work, we will play, we will laugh, we will live. We will not waste one moment, nor sacrifice one bit of our freedom, because of fear.
