Poor Welsh will be the only game in town out there. Time to take the slot off Monti and make it a tournament destination.

i guess that also means the water level will start fluctuating, since they won't have to keep it topped off all the time to support the plant.

Don't they say this every year? I bet if it goes cold there will be some donkeys in there

If it does shut down, blow a hole in the dam and merge the lake into Bob Sandlin!

That's a shame. Been hearing this would happen since I started fishing it. Hate it for those currently employed.

As for the fishing, it'll be fine just different.

TXU sells to Private equity firm.

PE firm saddles it with 45 Billion in debt.

Firm can't pay and files bankruptcy.

Vista buys assets, Luminant.

Vista closes plant and lays off workers.

Private Equity mantra, add debt to get money up front, stiff creditors in bankruptcy.

Same old story, different people affected.
