Stop the Rosemont Copper Project

by Dave Baker Thursday, June 11th 2009

Arizona congressional representatives Gabrielle Giffords and Raul Grijalva have turned up the heat on the Forest Service in an effort to stop the disastrous Rosemont Copper mining project south of Tucson in the Santa Rita Mountains.

Read about their recent efforts in an article in The Green Valley News.

I am not yet aware of a news feed devoted to the Rosemont Copper Project. I have been using "Google Alerts", a feature available to anyone who has signed up for a Google Account, which scans the web and automatically emails links based upon a search term you provide. The search term phrase I've been using, "rosemont mine", seems to be effective.

My biggest challenge is sometimes finding the balance between career, family, and fun but it’s working out so far!
