Hi Spark Friends, I went to my first and probably last City Council meeting. Shortly after being seated, the city Attorney comes over. Seems I am in trouble again, because I am to email him. What did I do this time? I did speak for 6 full minutes regarding the environmental effects of putting a tire plant in the middle of our tow. I tried to be fair. I am for the plant if we avoid pollution. Yet the owner told folks they do not know me. Then when I came out - since there request to build and move in is pending and not approved - was my fault. I was costing them lots of $ every day. Well ? Trouble seems to be my middle name - yet I strive to remain calm

    Hi Spark Friends, since that meeting I have been getting nasty threatening calls/texts plus breathing hang ups. Waited 1 hour now to talk to police and written Mayor

    I can feel for you, but as a farm wife I can tell you our look on a lot of these big industries. In our small town we have had a small chemical place in town, it has been there for as many years as there has been chemicals, but about 3 years ago instead of building on to there existing building they said it was unsafe to have it in town. So they build a new facility a mile from us, without even thinking of us. And there is families that live right across the street. They don't care if it blows up and kills a few farmer, after all we are few, it really makes you feel appreciated. They also build there big grain bins out here, over 4 millions bushels of corn, and we get all the extra traffic and the like. All these town all want the businesses but lets put them out in the country, casue we don't want, the smell, or the traffic, or the this or that, and us being in the country we can't even vote on what the city does they city votes to do it and they go out a buy a plot of ground and they build and we can't do a darn thing. So that is my take on some of these big businesses, you can't fight them they are bigger and are use to getting there way.

    That makes no sense. I would let them do all the talking to find out what is going on. Don't offer anything until they say what they want. You do not have to talk with them.

    Be strong in your commitments, don't be bullied. Let them here what you think and feel.

    Unknown am I over sensitive and reacting or? Why do I have to start talking with City Attorney first thing?
