More signs went up today, two double-sided ones on US. Hwy 301 and a busy lead-in road on the property of Lloyd Crawford, friend of many and well-known in the area. Mr. Crawford understands the threat of the mine to our water, our river, and the well-being of his city. That is why he opposes it with emotion.
A passerby walking her dog commented on the mine, saying she opposed it but it was going in anyway. She got quite an education in a short while, and a strong invitation to attend one of the monthly commission meetings, with specific details on location and times.
We want ONE THOUSAND people to clog the commission chambers on the night of the vote Bradford County. The people with the power to stop the mine must know that the people do not want their county ripped up nor the New River polluted, nor the aquifer drawn down even more than it is now.
If you know anyone in Bradford County, please call them to let them know what is happening in their county. Ask them to contact their commissioner and ask him to stop it.
