Thanks to the hard work by Carol Mosley, Kate Ellison and Paul Still, there was standing room only at the Sustainable Living Center at Hampton.  Attendees came from as far away as Ona, a three and a half hour drive, and St. Petersburg.

The mine was the topic of discussion, with a history of the HPS  company and its bid for a mine permit among the issues.  Dennis Price gave an interesting rundown on mining methods and the Master Mining Plan, changed and revised several times.   Carol Mosley recounted the questionable protocol by the Bradford County legal staff, and Paul Still spoke on Chemours’ sand mine application which may come before the county commission before the HPS permit; Rachel Curran from Center for Biological Diversity spoke on permitting requirements and Alachua County Commissioner Hutch Hutchinson informed the crowd as to Alachua County’s commitment to assisting in the fight against HPS, which is not inconsiderable.
