Letters to the editor I To the Editor: Dick and I attended the meeting set up at the Memorial Bldg. in Clinton on Tuesday evening, Jan. 14th 2003 in regards to the proposal of a large hog farm to be built by the Lismore Hutterite Colony west and south of Clinton and just a stones throw away from Big Stone Lake.

Outstanding payments due from Hagen's Ortonville Auto of $16,621.76 will be written off as the business has declared bankruptcy. Vicki Oakes brought to the atten- tion of EDA members that the project to include all city ordinances on the web site is near completion. She also asked for recommendations for addi- tions to the site, and asked that the various committees would provide schedules and updates so that the site would remain accurate. The URL is www.ortonville.net. In addition, the EDA Board dis- cussed actions they could take to attract an additional dentist to the area, hogs for so few family's isn't the way to go and still keep Big Stone Lake alive and thriving. Many were concerned about the value of the land and lakeshore lots, many of the lakeshore lots are now being built on with many nice homes going up in the area. Do we want these people to build and then find out they no longer want to be in the area close to a large hog farm? The Colony already has several barns of turkeys on the farm, and the neighbors can smell them during the summer, so do we need approximately 8 to 10 thousand hogs to smell too. Dick and I are in complete opposition to this proposed project,watch for future meetings, write letters to our legislators and congressmen, write or call any of your friends that have homes on the lake, express your concern and let them know what is going on. I wouldn't want them to come here in the future and find that this was all cut and dried and they knew nothing about what was going on until it was to late. We all must be stewards of the land and save our lake for our children and future generations to come and enjoy. Please join us in opposition to giving a permit to this proposed large hog farm. Respectfully Alice and Dick Stielow Hearing (Continued from Page One) eliminate the smells associated with spreading manure on top of the soil. We plan to inject after harvest where corn will be planted the following year," explained Hofer. According to Sveen, most of the problems with odor are from open storage facilities, which this one will not be. Hofer assured the audience that the Colony does not intend to expand in the future, and that if granted this per- mit, there will not be additions later on. Dave Chrysler of the Minnesota Pork Producers Association out of Marshall provided odor emission esti- mates indicating that the technology being proposed would exceed ag- zoned standards. Following the description of the facility, the Planning Commission asked for public comments, first from those supporting the proposal and after- wards from those against the proposal. A large number of people includ- ing adjacent property owners were concerned about damage to Big Stone Lake, ground water, and primarily the impact of odor on property values and quality of life along Big Stone Lake. Accordiago Darren Wilke, Envi- ronmental Officer for Big Stone County, no decision will be made quickly. The process for application for the permit must be completed by Lismore, after which several studies will be made including impact on the watershed district, ground water, soil testing and environmental studies as part of the Environmental Assessment Worksheet (LAW). Once the LAW is completed, and evaluations by state agencies, if there are any questions, further investigation and studies in the form of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be made and submitted with the application for the permit. These EIS tests will go into more detail and must include the actu- al specifications and construction blueprints. There will also be at least one more public hearing. After the Lismore proposal has made their final and complete propos- al, the Planning Commission will make a recommendation to the Coun- ty Board, and may approve with addi- tional conditions attached, or recom- mend not to approve. The County Board of Commis- sioners will then make the final deci- sion. According to Vicki Oakes, mem- ber of the County Planning Commis- sion, "there will be lots of research and study on this issue. Some of this proposal involves new technology, and we'lL be looking at existing com- parables to insure that the right deci- sion gets made, and that if recom- mended, appropriate restrictions and controls are in place. Property owners, and other concerned with this propos- al will have opportunities to present evidence and discuss the issue." i Letters to the editor I II To the Editor: This letter is to inform you and your readers of the possible scums that could be taking place in our area. The most recent seam that the Big Stone County Sheriff's Office has been notified of is involving the sale of personal property through the internet classified ads. It has been reported to this office that an individual was selling property through the internet classified ads. This individual received a response to their ad and they seemed very interested in purchasing the item. The individual wanting to purchase the item wanted to know if the item was still for sale, what the conditions 'of the item were, and how much the seller was asking for the item. The seller gave the individual the information they requested and a deal was made. The purchaser then advised the seller that they would be sending a check for "X" amount dollars which is larger then the seller was asking. The purchaser advised the seller that they wanted the seller to cash the check and wire the excess money from the cashed check to another individual for transportation costs. After further review of the Check and the information the seller received, it was found that the check was a fake. This is the second similar case we have found involving these seam methods and would we request that you be very careful when doing anything over the internet.

The seller gave the individual the information they requested and a deal was made. The purchaser then advised the seller that they would be sending a check for "X" amount dollars which is larger then the seller was asking. The purchaser advised the seller that they wanted the seller to cash the check and wire the excess money from the cashed check to another individual for transportation costs. After further review of the Check and the information the seller received, it was found that the check was a fake. This is the second similar case we have found involving these seam methods and would we request that you be very careful when doing anything over the internet.
