A crowd estimated at 800 packed the fifth and final public hearing on a proposed coal export terminal at Longview, Wash., and once again red-shirted opponents outnumbered supporters.

The News Tribune estimated that only about 100 of those in the Tacoma crowd on Thursday night supported the plan to build a $643 million Millennium Bulk Terminals facility that would export to Asia coal arriving by train from Montana and Wyoming.
