Eighteen coal facilities in Ohio are operating with expired pollution-discharge permits issued by the Ohio EPA, an agency where allegations of coal-industry influence arose during a personnel flap last year.
Last night's game between host Dallas and the Columbus Blue Jackets was postponed in the first period after Stars forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench following a "cardiac event". Play was halted 6:23 into the game and Peverley was taken to a hospital. Doctor Gil Salazar worked on him.
Peverley missed the start of the season because of a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat that was diagnosed during a physical exam given during training camp.The game has yet to be rescheduled.
