Subject: Perrier takes another site

To all Perrier fighters:

  Perrier has selected as its next target - Twin
Creek Springs near
Evart, Michigan. We knew they were working in MI
three months ago and
knew of a site to the south near Manistee National
Forest where Perrier
had permission to drill, but, didn't have a lot of

  We all know this does not mean they are leaving
Wisconsin. It just
confirms our beliefs they trying to locate in as
many states as possible.

  I received a call from a woman who saw the Time
Magazine article and
called an acquaintance in Omro, WI and eventually
Waterkeepers of
Wisconsin was tracked down.

  On Monday, October 2, 2000 Perrier officials
will meet with residents
in a town meeting. Sound familiar? We have all
been through this. Please
contact this lady and maybe we can give them our
support, advice,
encouragement and ways to fight if the people
choose to fight Perrier.

  Folks in Big Sandy, Texas area - I hope you
communicate with this lady,
also, since you are early on in your fight. Also,
the fighters that have
been at it longer hopefully can give these folks

  Twin Creek is located 100 miles south of
Mackinaw Bridge (not sure of
the spelling...sorry), largest city nearby is
Cadillac, Michigan. Twin
Creek is near the Chippewa State Forest.

  Evart, MI is 85 miles north of Grand Rapids, MI,
where we heard Perrier
had asked permission of landowners to drill on
their properties (near
Manistee National Forest.)

  Mary Ann Borden, a truck driver, of Evart, MI
can be reached at
231-734-3829. Her daughter has e-mail:
  Rhonda Huff at dhuff@netonecom.net

  Mary Ann said she has been calling around for
folks to attend Monday's
meeting where they are to hear from "Mr. Perrier,"
she said.

  Rhonda and Mary Ann - have a sign up sheet when
folks come to the
meeting. Have a spot that asks for people's e-mail
addresses. This is an
important tool to get information around quickly.
Many folks don't have
computers, but, you will be surprised to find
others do have them.

  Those of you around the country - please drop
Mary Ann a note through
her daughter. I do have Mary Ann's mailing address
if anyone needs to
send her something. I will send our sample mailing
in case they want to
start their own mailings and a few bumper

 Thanks everyone!
