Tuesday's ceremony for the Orange County Partnership, at Anthony's Pier 9, was suddenly interrupted by hecklers  One of the hecklers happens to be a well known, award winning actor.

Competitive Power Ventures executive Steve Remillard was about to accept the Golden Shovel Award, presented by the partnership and the Alliance for Balanced Growth, when two hecklers disrupted the event.

The Times Herald says that Pamilla Malick of Minisink and actor James Cromwell of Warwick were escorted out of the venue. Reports indicate that the duo were there to protest CPV's new power plant in Wawayanda. Malick says her home is near a compressor station on the Millennium Pipeline which will feed CPV’s power plant.

Malick defended her actions

The message I wanted people to understand is we can have healthy farms and families, or we can have a 640-megawatt power plant. We can’t have both.

The times herald says that the CPV Valley Energy Center is a $900 million investment expected to employ hundreds of construction workers.

This isn't the first time Cromwell has been part of a protest in the Hudson Valley. In January, Cromwell showed up outside the Sullivan County Courthouse to protest the sentencing of an animal rights activist who was accused of stealing ducks from the Hudson Valley Foie Gras in Liberty.
