WHY? 	Topics to be discussed include:

radioactive wastes for disposal in unlicensed landfills, and "recycling"
into consumer goods;
-> Precedent for this site to take other nuclear waste once Big Rock's are
-> Precedent for other Michigan waste sites to take radioactive wastes;

other closed nuclear power sites;

WHERE? Maple Forest Township Hall, corner Sherman Road and West Marker,
Maple Forest, Michigan (near Grayling and Frederic)
 - From the south taking I-75 North: 
Take I-75 North to exit 264 (Frederic Exit); 
Turn right on Co. Rd. 612, go approx. 3mi., 
Turn left on Sherman Road (3rd road on the left, blacktop, on the top of a
hill, should see a large gray farmhouse to your right). Take Sherman
approx. 2 mi to West Marker (2nd rd. on the left side). Township hall sets
right on this corner. If you pass a sign that says Maple Forest Horse Farms
on the right, you just passed it.

 - From the north taking I-75 South: 
Take I-75 South to the Waters exit (I think it's 269?); Go right off the
exit, up the hill and around the curves to Sherman Rd. (there is a small
sign that says landfill and an arrow just before. Also a house on the
corner that looks like an old schoolhouse); Turn right on Sherman, go
approx. 5 mi. to West Marker; (You will pass the landfill on the right,
it's 3 mi. past this point.) Township hall is on corner (left hand side,
just past a white-red trim ranch style home).
