Get the Latest Info on Dioxin/Body Burden...

...from one of our most prestigious professors Dr. David Garabrant, with one of the most prestigious medical training facilities in the world, the University of Michigan. Dr. Garabrant will bring us up to date on the study by the team he headed up. Here are meeting details:
  • Horizons Conference Center, 6200 State Street, in Saginaw Michigan
  • Tuesday, June 5, 2007
  • 6:00 pm -8:00 pm

Let's get over there and give him the full support he deserves. At the last public meeting presented by Dow Chemical and MDEQ on Thursday, May 3, the Lonetree Gang's own leader, Terry Miller, struck out at Dr. Garabrant verbally, showing an unexpected mean streak. Such behavior seems to be a recurring event with Lonetree Council and their pack mentality.

I went to a meeting Thursday...

My friends & I call them 'dioxin meetings'. The chemical company and the state government regulatory people are working together to clean up a chemical they couldn't even find in such tiny amounts a century ago when it all started. I don't attend those meetings to make sure they're doing it right. They know what they are doing. I attend because I find it therapeutic! I attend because there's a gang of bullies who want to get something for nothing from the giant company. I attend because those bullies want to drag me and my neighbors along with them by claiming they represent all of us. I attend to represent me and the majority of my neighbors who feel like I do although they prefer Len and I to represent them publicly.

Midland Daily News reporter, Kathie Marchlewski gives an accurate account of the May 3 quarterly meeting presented by Dow & MDEQ in her article - Prep for river cleanup to start. Read it to know all about the meeting.

Here's what I saw at that meeting:
  • a fairly full room, mostly people directly involved in getting the work done,
  • well done presentations - given by competent, well trained professionals,
  • an angry extremist environmental activist who decided to be exceptionally rude that day, and as usual, making sure to monopolize the comments and questions portion of the agenda with his prewritten scripts in hand.
  • the usual delicious cookies.

About the Tittabawassee River: Freeland's Walleye Festival, held annually on the last weekend of April, was once again a success! I'd like to share a couple of articles about fishing on the Tittabawassee from the Midland Daily News:
