As a Newville resident I am STRONGLY OPPOSED to a poultry operation of this size anywhere near Big Spring Creek. I hope the West Pennsboro supervisors make the correct decision which would be to protect the creek, overall environment and the quality of living in Newville.

Has anybody ever bothered to investigate this so called biologist's credentials?

Dan, you don't like farmers? Then quit eating.

ALL of which is NOT to say that I approve of this proposed poultry operation. I don't.

We had a guy who wanted to build several poultry barns that would be very close to Aughwick Creek, and we were able to stop him. But he went across the mountain and built it near Willow Hill.

The Susquehanna River Basin Commission may have an interest in the proposed large scale pollution 100 feet from the stream. It is a matter that SRBC and also local politicans must speak out against.

With the start of trout season imminent, now is the time to get busy and push hard to stop this farmer. You take away quality streams from fishermen, they make lots of noise that gets noticed!

trout fishing in this area has went to hell over the past 10yrs anyway. alot of people use to come to the franklin county area to trout fish. landowners posting their ground, price of liscense, and the fact you could only eat so many fish really put a dapper on things.

You know, it's true that the price of the license has gone up, and it's especially true that there is a limit on the number of fish that can be safely eaten per week. I see the bigger problems being that they don't put nearly as many fish from the stock truck in the streams anymore, and then poachers follow the stock truck around and take all of the fish back out of the streams within hours of them being placed there. It's a shame that they have to stock the streams to begin with, but when there's nothing to catch, people aren't going to pay the inflated cost for a fishing license.

Our community has a fishing derby for the little ones on the first day of trout season. We cook hot dogs and hamburgers down by the creek, and turn it into an early season picnic. I can't help but believe it gives the little ones something to look forward to, and hopefully encourages their interest in fishing.

Without knowing all of the particulars of this specific proposal, I think it would better serve all people who have a stake in Big Spring Creek (or any PA creek) if we took a more comprehensive approach to stream and watershed management. While it may be argued that any single impact can be 'absorbed' by the stream, it is the sum total or cumulative impacts that count... and Big Spring Creek has suffered from adverse cumulative impacts more than most. Please, give this important PA waterway the protection it deserves.

Gene Macri has been instrumental in the restoration/preservation of several important local streams (Falling Spring, Letort, etc) and is a well respected local environmental scientist. There is nothing 'so-called' about either him or his work.

I guarantee the DEP and the Fish & Boat Commission know of his credentials. Didn't you read the article? This man fought them and won! You would think the DEP and Fish & Boat Commission would want to help preserve our streams. They fought him every step to keep that hatchery open, knowing his stream study results were correct. Keep up the good fight Mr. Macri! The folks in charge surely do not!

No development ever, we don't need no stinking jobs, we dont need no stinking food, we dont need no stinking restaurants. We just need more sand for us local mind numbed retards to bury our heads in.
We like living 40 years in the past. Now pass the ham and scalloped potatoes.
