There is a story in the Bible in the book of Genesis, that tells of twin brothers, Esau and Jacob. Esau was the elder and had the birth right of an eldest son. This was no small matter back at that time. One day Esau was hungry after working all day in the fields and he gave Jacob his birth right in exchange for a bowl of pottage made of lentils. How foolish we say as we read this story! This story reminds me of the choice we have right now here in Preston. Do we wish to give up our birth right to clean air, water, food and land, and our good health in exchange for a few uncertain dollars? How foolish! Mercury tends to come down in the area in which it is spewed into the atmosphere. Too much mercury can harm brain cells and is especially harmful to children and women who are pregnant. Mercury builds up in the body. Is this what we want to pass on to our children? On a rainy or snowy day, the other very dangerous pollutants that will come out of the smoke stack of Heartland, will not bother to pass on to our neighbors in Lanesboro, Harmony, Whalan, etc., but will be brought down right into our fair city. What are you willing in give in exchange for a few uncertain dollars? Im not willing to risk my health! Vote for Doc Sauer at the special January election! He is a decent, honorable, and thoughtful person. He will have better ideas of how to improve our fair city. He will give us an opportunity to discuss these ideas, choose what is best and go forward in a healthy manner. Vote for good health for all of us and our neighbors. Nothing is more valuable than our health! Ask anyone who is sick.
