Concerned about all who enjoy our park

Thursday, October 25, 2007

Dear Editor:

Michelle Ozbun knew almost from the day she filed a permit that this location for a confined animal feeding operation (CAFO) was going to be a huge issue that was not going to go away. She chose to proceed rather than to wait for the outcome of the objections to be heard.

I'm sorry Michelle feels we have been unfair in our concerns regarding her CAFO. We have truly made a concerted effort to not make personal remarks. Our only concern is and has been the beauty and cleanliness of air, water and land of our beloved Roaring River State Park.

We are concerned not only for neighbors but for all who enjoy our park, both near and far. Roaring River State Park belongs to ALL of us, a gift from God for all to enjoy.
