Excellent Rhonda, a great take on the issue and I hope the meeting is great
too.  This was a good weekend in Freep.  The Sunday edition featured a great
article on Grand Rapids

A real debt of gratitude is owed to Rhonda Anderson and to Directors Chester
and Parker for getting these critical issues on the table and working to
assure that every Michigan family and community will some day be guaranteed
healthy and thriving communities -- Thank you all!

Two important op ed pieces in today's Free Press focusing on the need to
address environmental injustices. One by MDEQ Director Steve Chester and
Michigan Department of Civil Rights Director Linda Parker. The other by
Sierra Club's Rhonda Anderson who serves on the state's Environmental
Justice Workgroup..
