Henslows sparrow

Hard to decide what side of the fence Rep Reitz is on...first he's for it, with his ammendments...the he calls the Sierra Club and jumps on the "save the sparrow" bandwagon. Where were the treehuggers when this property was becoming a strip mine? Now all of the sudden its this magical grassland full of exotic birds, give me a break! Southern Illinois needs this project, even with the land swap or in the future the Henslow's sparrow may be what the people of the area are eating for supper!

no we don't. the coal industry is on the upswing. we don't need a bunch of chicagonites moving here and spoiling the wild beauty of little egypt. find another spot for a playground. it is one of the last few places that are still the same.

The link is so old that it no longer works. What town is being referred to as the future Branson? Cairo could sure use a shot in the arm.

The land swap was for part of pyramid state park. This rumors come and go every several years. That's all it ever is .....a rumor. They wanted to " build " near there.
