Area youths seek answers on Davis-Besse

CLEVELAND - Four Sylvania boys curious about what’s been happening at Davis-Besse took time away from their schooling yesterday to come here and get their questions answered.

Kevin Davis, a seventh-grader at McCord Junior High School, who attended a congressional field briefing on the nuclear power plant held at Cleveland City Hall, asked for an explanation of why FirstEnergy Corp. didn’t pick up on evidence of leaking boric acid sooner.

The boys are part of a nine-member robotic engineering research team called Circuit Breakers, which earlier this year won a national competition.

Kevin was joined by Brian Finch, also 12 and in seventh grade at McCord Junior High School, as well as Sam Arnold, 13, and Ian Shaw, 12, home-school students in the eighth and sixth grades, respectively.

"That’s what makes our Democracy great - that 11, 12, and 13-year-old kids can stand up and ask questions," Lori Shaw, a parent chaperone, said.

Kevin, according to Ms. Shaw, got a puzzling response from one of the McCord teachers upon notifying her that he was taking the day off to attend a congressional field briefing.

"No, really," the teacher responded. "Where’re you going?"
