CLEVELAND — Tim Tanksley, a resident of Bokoshe, Oklahoma today added his voice to others around the nation who have invited Cass Sunstein, an administrator with the  U.S. Office of Budget and Management  to view the damage caused by coal ash dumped in his community at a landfill which is named “Making Money Having Fun.”  In his letter Tanksley says “The piles of fly ash and wastewater have seriously contaminated our air and water supplies, and will seriously affect the livelihood of our communities for years to come….To better understand why we need your help, will you come visit us in Bokoshe and see how much ‘fun’ we are having with the Making Money Having Fun toxic landfill?”
