First Weber-Make a Smooth move

Who does Tiffany represent?

To the editor:

Mr. Tiffany, who do you represent? As chairman of the Senate Mining Committee you chose to have the one and only mining bill hearing 200 to 300 miles from the people who elected you and the people who will be impacted the most by this new mining bill.

Secondly, as our senator you should have your finger on the pulse of your district. You should have realized, in this largely snow-free winter, how much having this hearing in northern Wisconsin could have meant to a convention center, gas station, restaurant, hotel, etc.

Mark Pflieger, Harshaw

I would hope that the further away from Madison you get a stronger appreciation for the environment that is a daily part of our lives. Every day when the times are rough we can be thankful for being surrounded by this gift of nature. There might be a profit involved in damaging the earth but it is a given that there's always a cost. We are now in the red. Change the value of our environment to one of appreciation and preservation. Hug a tree and it will give you oxygen. The minority profit from mining but the majority suffer the consequences forever. Think of the earth with each step you take. Preserve the earth for the survival of man and the future of the children. Sixteen tons and what do you get?

Food for thought
