Mining dilemma article

I can't thank Stacy Gittleman enough for her article (October/Downtown) on the mining dilemma Michigan is facing. The scope, depth and understanding of her research and resultant article was impressive.

Incredible piece of research detailing all the problems of Senate Bills 429-431. One of the Metamora Land Preservation Alliance board members commented that it was one of the best written summarizing the current state of affairs in Lansing that they have seen. I will keep it and use it to help the MLPA explain the issues to other groups.

I also want to thank you for making me come off better than I actually did. As a new citizen activist, I sometimes have trouble expressing all my concerns for my much beloved community succinctly.
