E-M:/ Humbug - media, Dingell & citizens ready to fight



-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enviro-Mich message from "Blair J. Mc Gowan" <blairj@gatecom.com>

Humbug Island and Humbug Marsh in the news:

Made In Detroit Inc., is  desperately trying to sell Humbug to a new
developer. 
That developer/investor should be forewarned: 

1. There will be no quiet little arrangement; the media is alert.

2. Congressman Dingell is assembling $3.5 Million to buy the property. 
Any developer will have to thwart John Dingell and the region's
determination to create an International Wildlife Refuge.

3. The USACE and a new DEQ's regulatory scrutiny are not going to
evaporate.
More likely, they will grow in vigor.

4. Local, regional, and statewide interests are ready to fight the next
round of development.
