Ricky Handshoe stands at the head of a creek that runs past his house Wednesday June 27, 2012 in Hueyville. Handshoe has brought people from all over the world to the creek to show how a creek begins, but high toxic readings beginning in January shut down those activities. His property is now surrounded on three sides by mountaintop removal activity and tests by Appalachian Voices show none of the water coming from the mountain supports life.
