Occasionally, I will mention my job, my public service activities, and other aspects of my life to offer my readers a better perspective on where I'm coming from. But to be clear:
"The views that I express represent my own opinions, based on my own education and experience, not the opinions of any other entity, party, or group to which I belong. I give these opinions in my individual capacity, as a private citizen, and as someone who gives a good gosh darn about his community, his country, and the truth."
In other words: my blog, my words, my point of view. Enjoy!
Hyperion Air Pollution Permit Hearing Starts Tuesday in Pierre
Don't forget: the South Dakota Board of Minerals and Environment holds four days of hearings this week, starting Tuesday, to determine whether to grant Hyperion permission to pollute the air around Elk Point with a new oil refinery. The hearings start at 10 a.m. Tuesday (with some smaller issues up first), then 9 a.m. Wed–Fri. Let's hope the BME will put environment over minerals on this one.
