Leak pollutes fine old waterway

More than anything, I want to believe Paul Newton when he says his company will fix the damage it has done to the Dan River. Newton, Duke Energy's president for utility operations in North Carolina, has apologized for the company's ash pond leak in Eden that has polluted the river for many miles. “You have our complete, 100 percent commitment to do it right,” Newton reportedly said. “We are accountable and we will make it right.”
