Dominion Virginia Power's preferred route for a high-voltage power line over the James River has won state regulatory approval over objections it would mar a historic stretch of the James.
Scientists say they have found the first solid archaeological evidence that some of the earliest American colonists survived harsh conditions by resorting to cannibalism.
Kelso and other preservationists have argued for an alternate path across the James or burying the transmission line under the river.
"It really infringes upon what I think is a national treasure," Kelso said Friday of the parkway. "That's a major concern, something that severs the river. It's just so pristine."
