William (Billy) Haugland Jr. asks this reporter if she’s seen ‘Field of Dreams,’ the 1989 film starring Kevin Costner who transforms an empty cornfield in Iowa into a baseball diamond. (She has.)
Haugland, the co-president of Haugland Group LLC of Melville, Long Island, mentions the film as a framework to talk about the company’s purchase of the former Mirant New York Lovett plant in Tomkins Cove, and how the shuttered power plant – a challenging contaminated site – can be reinvented to support the burgeoning clean energy offshore wind field and bring back jobs to Stony Point.
