A Gravel Mine in Lyndon?

 

continued

Enos suspects Eder is right. "If it winds up in court, the state typically looks favorably on extraction operations because that's where God put [the minerals], and they have to get them out. But either way we're going to be sued, and it's going to take some time to work its way through the courts."

That's OK with Eder, who says that 200 or so people already have joined the Friends of Chelsea and Lyndon Township to fight the project: "Our position is to delay as long as possible and apply as much political pressure as we can."

Though the law makes it an uphill fight, Eder believes that sooner or later, they will stop the mine. "We love this area, and I can't imagine that we can't succeed."    (end of article)
