    Well, the sirens were soon removed and phones installed, I hear. Complaining people are why we serve & improve, it seems. Otherwise we would be a 3rd world province of complacent & powerless natives.

    NIMBY describes people who want to move into an area where active activity, whether it be mining, an airport, railroad, other industry, etc. has been ongoing for many years. Suddenly, to accomodate the NIMBYs of the world, the "offensive" activity is supposed to change. If you don't like what's there why did you move there? Or, for that matter, weren't you astute or aware enough to look around your prospective area before you bought there?

    I was president of a large fire department that used sirens to call in volunteers in the days before cell phones. One highly indignant citizen showed up at a meeting one night to complain that he had been woken up by a loud siren in the middle of the night and wanted the sirens removed. Of course, he had just recently moved in. And, yes, the sirens went off... to alert first responders to the address of the call - where a 4-year had stopped breathing. Luckily we had been able to get oxygen to her and saved her life. I wasn't too PC when I told the indignant individual where he could put his complaint - an early NIMBY.

    I made an error on the last post. I meant to type Has NOT been evaluated for carcinogenic, or nutangenic potential or for impairment of fertility. Please correct this. I left out the word not.

    I agree with you, Lolly. It is rare now days. Mark Greer,I thought they were mining for copper. What may be causing some of the neurological disorders are a combination of many things. Clean up needs to done on all the Uranium mining they have done. The other problem is that there are many agencies working on Weather Modification, which they finally admit. North American Weather Modification is located in Sandy, Utah. They spray so much in Layton, I know that is why we have such a high brain tumor rate. The other thing that is causing cancer, neurological diseases, and autoimmune diseases are the vaccinations. I have done so much research on vaccinations. I wish I could put all of my research on here. They are listed as biological blood products, and they are mixing the blood of monkeys and other animals, insect, tumors they are growing these viruses in, and then the toxic ingredients are causing so much of the illness we see today. I wish everyone would the vaccine inserts, 13.1 - 13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility
    This vaccine has been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential or for impairment of fertility.

    It'd be great to take the mining out of the valley so children could grow up with fewer neurological disorders. Likely best to bow to the fact that too many people live here now, and it is not a good place to mine any more. The big hole is 2/3rd full of unusable dirt and rubble. Likely it is not feasible to try n' continue business "as usual". The gracious giving that RioTinto was doing for the U and the naming stadiums might be done. Since clean air matters much more to me than the $$$ RioTinto pumps into the economy, I'll await our prayers being answered for "really" clean air. Not just manipulated statistics, that I'm supposed to choke down in the name of jobs & donations....

    What an incredible company to always put safety over financial gain.
