Wildlife study takes time
The Saginaw News, December 26, 2004... Matthew 'Zwiernik, an assistant professor for the Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory at Michigan State University, is leading a $5 million study to determine dioxin's impact on floodplain wildlife.' Gee, how did this one slip by? More studies on effects of dioxin on critters other than the human variety!!! Extrapolate the data and scare the masses... Sorry folks, I don't care who is paying for this study. It's just another diversion. My residence still carries the label 'facility' and as usual, the property taxes have gone up. I think it's time for Governor Granholm to reevaluate either the terminology or my tax base!!
Dredging din grows
The Saginaw News, December 22, 2004... and the Saginaw River commercial shipping problem continues. It's time the environutz got out of the business of putting Michigan out of business!!! It's time for Governor Granholm to listen to the majority. That would be us (the residents). That would be William Webber and his peers - other business people along the Saginaw River. That would be everybody interested in keeping jobs in our area. That would be everybody who cares about the people in our tri-city area! This would, of course, mean listening to the scientists instead of environmental extremist fearmongers.
Hey! I have an idea!!! Dump all that Saginaw River silt along the Tittabawassee River floodplain. My backyard is available. It is, after all, still a 'facility.' It's time for a tax hiatus along the Tittabawassee River, Guv!
