EM and DEQ:

Be aware that today's DEQ Calendar (live online, and e-mailed PDF):

   http://www.michigan.gov/deq/0,1607,7-135-3308_3325-162869--,00.html


...still announces the 12 March 2007 Kennecott hearing:

   MARCH 12, 2007
   1:00 - 4:30
   p.m.and
   6:00 - 9:00 p.m

   NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING BY THE MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF
   ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY (DEQ) REGARDING THE KENNECOTT
   EAGLE PROJECT, SECTIONS 11 AND 12, T50N, R29W,
   MICHIGAMME TOWNSHIP, MARQUETTE COUNTY. The Public
   Hearing will be held at the Lansing Center, 333 E. Michigan Avenue,
   Lansing, Michigan...

   ...A consolidated hearing on the Mining Permit and on a Michigan Air
   Use Permit and a Groundwater Discharge Permit under 1994 P.A. 451 
   will also be held from 1:00-4:30 p.m. and 6:00-9:00 p.m., March 6,
   7, and 8, 2007, at the Don H. Bottum University Center, 1401 Presque
   Isle Avenue, Marquette, Michigan.


Although, as seen on this list last Thursday:

   FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
   March 1, 2007

   DEQ Withdraws Proposed Decision on Kennecott Mining Application

   ...Director Chester also announced that the public hearings, 
   scheduled for March 6-8 in Marquette and March 12 in Lansing, 
   will be postponed and rescheduled at a later date.

I presume this was an oversight on the DEQ Calendar -- but absolute
clarity would be wise given recent concerns about this permit process.

     The best proof for a claim that terrorists are crazy or evil
     would be to acknowledge that the White House is full of them
