Re: “Guest Opinion

Desert Rock would be the first coal fired power plant in quite some time. I have always felt that the environmental concerns would be a key sticking point. But I truly believe that the real reason is that it would be the first Indian owned power plant, and it is an economic based biased objection. If anyone would care to review the innovative lease it is one that ensures that the Navajo Tribe will never lose control over the plant or it's ownership. it is unique in that the concerns of the tribe were prioritized over the other region's typical trustee's inadequacies in protecting resources of indian tribes. Navajo Region has excelled in providing guidance and technical expertise in the area of resource protection. I know because this was the final project that I worked with Mr. James Fitting Esq. before I retired. In so far as Peabody. If the Hopi secure competent legal representation, I believe the existing leases can be found to be deficient and re-negotiated. and if the Hopi Tribal Council comes to it's senses and works toward the benefit of the people and not be self-serving as they have consistently acted.
