Thanks to Suwannee St. Johns Group of Florida Sierra Club, we have seven new signs in mine territory, bringing awareness to the threat of the proposed phosphate mine.  And thanks to OSFR for manpower and to Tom Germano for welcome help in installation.

Thanks to Doug Bernal for creating the striking, beautiful graphics on the sign, and to Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson for donating the wood.  And to Kristin Rubin, Jane Blais, Tom Germano and yours truly for installation.

Tom Germano was a huge help in both finding locations for signs, and in installing them.

Jane is a trooper when it comes to digging holes.

Incredibly, some citizens of Bradford County have not heard of the mine proposal.
