Lawmaker stalls land-swap deal

There are 2 comments on the Lincoln-Way Sun story from Jun 10, 2007, titled Lawmaker stalls land-swap deal. In it, Lincoln-Way Sun reports that:

“I don't think trading state land is a good idea. We see this (measure) more as an option in case the developers can't find other private land”

A legislative effort to authorize a Southern Illinois land swap that would clear the way for a resort rivaling Missouri's Branson has been put on hold so environmentalists can study the plan. via Lincoln-Way Sun

I think in an area where jobs are being lost on a regular basis, that a resort would be just the thing to get us back on our feet. It would bring jobs to the area not only in the resort, but to motels, gas stations, and other local businesses. What is more important to mankind, human life or a sparrow? This is an important issue we must look at with an open mind, not just what the down side would be, but also what it can do for the PEOPLE.

I agree 100%. They need to focus on developing a bigger business comunity and quit going along with the old timers that do not want change. Lets move on to the future and quit trying to keep Pinckneyville in the dark ages.
