E-M:/ Millenium Egg WON'T Build 2.5 million chicken facility in Orleans Twp

Enviro-Mich message from "Anne Woiwode" <anne.woiwode@sierraclub.org>

The Sentinel Standard newspaper ran a story yesterday:

"Just one year after Midwest Poultry announced it would build the Millennium
Egg complex, a $45 million liquid-egg producing factory housing 2.5 million
chickens, Chief Executive Officer Robert Krouse pulls the plug on the
project here."

full story:

Local citizens worked VERY hard for the last year to oppose this outrageous
facility, and are understandably cautious to accept this as the nail in the
coffin for what has been a nasty, difficult fight.  But for the moment
congratulations are in order, in particular for the leaders of this
effort -- Lucinda Chipman, Jim Patrick and a strong, diverse group of
Orleans residents who fought this fight well!
