NPR's Scott Simon talks with Mrs. Bula Hern, an 83-year-old widow living in what was the little town of Cheshire, Ohio. The town was recently bought out by the American Electric Power Company, which had seriously polluted the air of Cheshire. Mrs. Hern is one of the few people who refused to sell, leaving her in what has become a ghost town.
