FILE - In this June 17, 2009 file photo, an eagle sign welcomes visitors at the entrance to downtown Libby, Mont. Asbestos-plagued Libby, Mont., has reached a significant milestone in its decade-long cleanup as the federal government completes the makeover of a former vermiculite processing plant into a town park. Following a 12-year cleanup, officials say a wedding in the newly-constructed Riverfront Park is lined up for the summer and a blues festival is scheduled for early August. It's a dose of normalcy that marks a major milestone for Libby, a mining town of about 3,000 people near the Canadian border that has become synonymous with lung disease and death after an estimated 400 people to date have been killed by asbestos exposure.
