Letter about sand mining

To the Editor,

Jim, thank you for your excellent letter to the editor about sand mining. You hit the nail right on the head. A group of people that their only intention is to kill the sand mining industry or any other project does no one any good. Also, I see that the L. S. P. (Land Stewardship Project) is opposing it. Their own agenda is always very narrow and political. Usually they want to zone their neighbors out of business. They to want property rights for themselves; but not their neighbors. We do need zoning regulations, but they need to be reasonable.

Fillmore County needs every job possible. The county has about the lowest per capita income in S.E. Minnesota. We have employment issues and health care issues. Our work force leaves the county for work in nearby counties and there goes our young families. It is apparent in our schools and churches that the county’s young population is going downhill. Lets use our energy towards a positive point of view and everyone will be ahead. The journey is not going to be an easy one anyway.
