To the Editor:

I loved the headlines on the front page of the Rapid City Journal recently. “Details on Uranium mine still unclear.”

That is what most of the interveners have been raising such a fuss about – no clear facts. Not that I am going to call anyone wrong; even Mark Hollenbeck. Like I say to everyone; he’s doing a very good job doing what he is paid to do – sell uranium in situ leach mining to the people of South Dakota.

I do believe it is wrong, however, that one of the high schools in Rapid City had him ‘teach’ his sales pitch to their students, as facts on uranium. I hope the students are smarter than the teacher and do extensive research on it.

I also got a kick out of one of the letters to the editor; entitled “Powertech, DENR on same page,” where Harold Storsve said Mark Hollenbeck whines, so does Powertech’s Richard Clements.

I don’t believe any of the interveners have whined about anything. They usually state the facts of their investigations.

Such as Western Mining Action Network has set up Nov. 13, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Pacific Time, to talk to a lawyer if you need information on legal issues around mining. Please RSVP at Contrary to Powertech’s lawyer Max Main, .org sites usually have very good researched answers and they are legal.
