U.P. Breaking News Exclusive: Large blaze at Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility
 
01:44
Upper Peninsula Breaking News video/photo exclusive: Large building burns at Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility (Ishpeming, MI) – A blaze in a large building at the Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility on Saturday night was being battled by firefighters from West Marquette County fire departments. A large building in the rear of the facility – located at 700 Sunset Dr. in Ishpeming - was shooting out flames and heavy thick smoke when it was reported about 9 p.m. Saturday. The building was thought to house wood chips and shavings used in the facility’s revolutionary compost operation known as: Class A Exceptional Quality biosolids compost. However the exact nature of the huge building and the how the fire started have not been released. The compost chips and shavings are known to heat up to very high temperatures. Upper Peninsula Breaking News was the only news media on the scene during the blaze. Those battling the fire including the City of Ishpeming Volunteer Fire Department with mutual aid from Ishpeming Township Fire Department. Also assisting at the scene were Ishpeming Police Department officer and paramedics from U.P. Health System – Bell, however no serious injuries were reported. The plant is located on Sunset Dr about a half mile west of Lakeshore Dr. just off U.S. 41 at the railroad overpass. The facility overseers are the Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Board and has been featured in several recent stories in industry magazines and news media feature stories. Officials were inspecting the damage on Sunday however no press releases were issued at press time. Upper Peninsula Breaking News has left messages for Ishpeming Fire Chief Edward Anderson, facility director Deborah Pellow, and the Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility Board of Directors Chairman Fred Benzie. The plant is used by Ishpeming Township, and the cities of Negaunee and Ishpeming, according to a Treatment Plant Operator November 2013 Magazine article by Jim Force as Negaunee was about to join. The facility’s Class A Exceptional Quality biosolids compost is in demand for local landscaping. And its staff loves working at the plant because several process improvements have made operations easier and safer. In part, facility director Debbie Pellow attributes the plant’s success to its administrative structure, consisting of a board that deals only with wastewater. “We supply treatment to the City of Ishpeming and to Ishpeming Township and are governed by the Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Board,” Pellow says. “Our board members must apply for the position. They bring an inherent interest and understanding for wastewater to the job. As a result, our board emphasizes keeping our employees safe.” The plant accepts wastewater from the City of Ishpeming (population 6,470) and Ishpeming Township (population 3,522). The city and township maintain their own collection systems: “We’re responsible for it once it hits the gate,” says Pellow. According to a Wednesday, January 12, 2011 article in Second Wave Media Upper Peninsula titled "Ishpeming Wastewater Treatment Plant leaps to forefront of industry innovation" by Becky Korpi: The municipal waste biosolids plant not only runs on renewable resources but is the first of its kind in Michigan. The plant, located at the Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility, combines municipal solid waste with the wood cuttings or shavings that result from tree cuttings to form a soil amendment that can be used for landscaping and gardening. The finished product has tested as being 99 percent pathogen-free as well as guarded against salmonella and is well below the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's limits for metal traces. According to a Marquette Mining Journal story titled "Area facility sells quality compost" on May 2015: To kill off any smell that would attract insects, it's then kept at least 113 degrees for another 14 nonconsecutive days.

Love Canal Hero Lois Gibbs banned at Marquette Senior High School to stop youth sulfide mine talk
 
03:41
Did Politics Have Anything To Do With Censorship at Northern Michigan High School?: Love Canal environmental warrior Lois Gibbs had an invite to speak at Marquette Senior High School revoked after administrators feared she may mention sulfide mine fight Marquette Senior High school administrators demanded that visiting environmental legend not talk about sulfide mining in the Upper Peninsula during talk with students, so Lois Gibbs refused to speak calling the incident "really sad" because "it puts children in the middle" of adult fighting. The controversy involving Marquette Area Public Schools officials shocked an audience later that day (Oct., 15, 2010) at Northern Michigan University (NMU) when "Mother of the Superfund" Lois Gibbs said the snub was something that she has dealt with in other communities. At issue is the first of many sulfide "acid" mines is being built on state property in North Marquette County near Lake Superior. "I was invited to speak at the high school -- and then when they told me I could not speak about the mine -- I refused to speak at the high school," said Gibbs whose comments were interrupted by applause at NMU. "I do not know all of the details." "I was just really sad that the students weren't able to learn how to play in our democracy -- that part was very sad," Gibbs said. "Hopefully the school will come around but this is a company town." "Even those the company (Kennecott Minerals) isn't sort of all the way here yet -- it is a company town and you have to understand that," Gibbs said. "There was one brave, heroic, courageous teacher who put up a good struggle to try and get me there (at MSHS) and unfortunately it didn't happen," Gibbs said. "It actually has happened to me a lot - people are afraid of me," Gibbs said. "I am opposed to things (that ruin the environment) that people are opposed to." "They make other people outside fearful of speaking - that's how they control us -- and that's what we have to overcome," she said. "I do not know who was in charge of saying I shouldn't talk about the mine at the high school," Gibbs said. "It puts the children in the middle." "So if I did go and talk -- and one of the children did ask me a question about the mine -- How was I to answer that question? 'Sorry I am not allowed to speak' And then it's like the grownups are having a fight. I don't think that's helpful to the students." "I have children to and I do not want my children put in that position at school," Gibbs said. "Because the local group had arranged it -- or the teachers arranged it -- and then somehow" the invitation to speak was rescinded, she said. "Waste management is one of my favorite groups in most schools -- they have lots of their propaganda there - and then when they hear I am coming they convince people that I have a radical speech," Gibbs said. "I am not privy to the conversations (between school officials and industries that pollute) so I don't know what they say." "It's happened at other schools -- this is not unique," she said. "It's unique to you and maybe appalling to you, but your community is similar to other communities -- who have won by the way." "You have a chance to win here," Gibbs continued. "Actually you have a better chance than some other communities because you are not as far along with this mine as some of the other communities -- especially the ones out west." Gibbs compared the future of the Upper Peninsula to Love Canal disaster as both involve lethal chemicals. It appears that officials involved in higher education in Marquette, MI were not thrilled by Gibbs talked that opposed the Kennecott Eagle Minerals nickel and copper and similar mines planned for the Yellow Dog Plains near Lake Superior.

Adventure 2008: WI couple kayaking around Lake Superior
 
10:13
(Marquette, Michigan) - It's a 1,300 mile - two month - odyssey - kayaking around the always beautiful and sometimes treacherous Lake Superior Ashland, Wisconsin residents Alissa Weitz and Brian Castillo are promoting the protection of Lake Superior - the world's largest freshwater lake. The twenty somethings departed Bayfield, Wisconsin on July1 and hope to complete their journey by September. The kayaking duo left Marquette, Michigan on Tuesday afternoon, July 22, 2008 to continue their journey. They arrived in Marquette for Lake Superior Day 2008 - this year that was July 20 2008. Lake Superior Day is sponsored by the Lake Superior Bi-national Forum and is held annually on the third Sunday of July. Alissa and Brian spent Lake Superior Day hiking with friends and swimming including jumping off the tall cliffs at the city's "black rocks." A real Marquette thing to do. A big part of their quest is educating the public about protecting Lake Superior and why the largest of the Great Lakes is so important.. The trek takes them through the Canada and the United States including Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Averaging 25 miles a day - with their longest day was about 40 miles. They encountered water temperatures as low as 38 degrees, fog outside of Marquette, rough waves outside of Houghton, Michigan that prevent them from rounding the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula - and instead cut through the Keweenaw Waterway. Thanks to Down Wind Sports in Marquette, Brian picked up a new kayak because of problems with the one used during the first part of their trek. Weitz is a native of Dubuque, Iowa and Castillo is a native of Madison, Wisconsin. Alissa is 26 years old and Brian is 23 years old. Graduates of the Northland College outdoor education program in Ashland, Wisconsin, the couple were competitors working for different kayak guiding companies when they met two years ago and fell in love.

Manoomin: Michigan teens, American Indians restore wild rice
 
10:00
The Manoomin Project is restoring wild rice to northern Michigan thru the hands of at-risk teenagers with help from American Indian guides. Over 100 teens have planted more than one ton of wild rice seeds during the past four summers thanks to guides from several Native American communities and other volunteers including from Marquette County Juvenile Court. The wild rice project was founded by the Cedar Tree Institute in Marquette, Michigan and the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community to help the teenagers learn respect for themselves, nature and American Indian heritage. The teens can also learn about faith and are taught social issues like racism against Native American. Normally held in September, the fourth annual planting was delayed until November 2007 due to lo water levels in Wisconsin where the seeds are purchased. Manoomin Project volunteer media advisor Greg Peterson has the story.

Buyers ordered to stay away from the press. This past weekend's Estate Sale for Gordon Elson was not advertised -- except for a few posters. However, Upper Peninsula Breaking News discovered the estate sale -- and Gordon Elson was the Coca-Cola King of the Upper Peninsula -- as he ran a successful bottling works that produced a variety of soft drinks. Chances are if you were in the Upper Peninsula in the 50s to the 90s -- you likely drank pop that originated at his bottling plant. Elson owned the Marquette Coca Cola Franchise until 1989 when he sold the family business that was started by his family in the 1800s. Elson served on the board of Directors of the Peninsula Bank for just shy of 3 decades -- including 8 years a board chairman. What appeared to be missing at the estate sale was Gordon Elson's most valuable Coca-Cola memorabilia. In fact, we're told a feature story was in the Mining Journal once described Elson's memorabilia alone to be worth one million dollars ($1,000,000). We'd love to see a copy of that article. So what happened to Elson's most valuable collectable and who got the proceeds? In fact, what happened to Elson's multimillion dollar fortune -- before and after his death? The estate sale was held at 601 Cooper Lake Road in Ishpeming Township. The very first people in line on Saturday morning presumably got the first picking -- and the most expensive item we could see was this old mini-truck that had as price tag of $10,000. That truck sparked a lot views but its unknown if it sold. It was one of the few things in plain view -- another was this golf cart -- and furniture. At 9 a.m. Saturday July 12, 2014 , the doors opened on a garage that appeared to hold memorabilia -- and other items listed on the poster. The buyers of items from the Elson said they were warned not to talk to Upper Peninsula Breaking News: We saw much of the operation seemed to be run by Ed St. Aubin -- who accosted this reporter the day before the sale -- and said he was court-appointed to assist. Upper Peninsula Breaking News has not heard back from Marquette County Probate Court to verify St. Aubin was court appointed. We spotted the executor of the Elson estate -- George Paavo of Negaunee. Another player in this saga was also present -- executor Paavo's attorney - Richard Graybill of Ishpeming. Paavo and Graybill have declined to comment was we try to shed light on what's left of the Elson estate and question whether any of those listed in the Elson will every see a nickle. A records check shows Elson owned an expensive Florida home valued at over 600 thousand dollars -- reportedly purchased after his wife's death. By many accounts, Elson was devastated by the dearth of his wife Catherine in 1989 -- the year he sold the business and franchise. Apparently all of his close relatives have died. That plush home was then sold for half a million dollars in 2009. Upper Peninsula Breaking News is checking into Elson property, vehicles, stocks and bonds, collectibles and any other valuables he obtain. We are also seeking information from the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission, Michigan Attorney Discipline Board, Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission. Upper Peninsula Breaking News intends to file complaints against those involved.

Huge weekend fire damages Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility
 
01:15
Upper Peninsula Breaking News video/photo exclusive: Large building burns at Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility (Ishpeming, MI) – A blaze in a large building at the Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility on Saturday night was being battled by firefighters from West Marquette County fire departments. A large building in the rear of the facility – located at 700 Sunset Dr. in Ishpeming - was shooting out flames and heavy thick smoke when it was reported about 9 p.m. Saturday. The building was thought to house wood chips and shavings used in the facility’s revolutionary compost operation known as: Class A Exceptional Quality biosolids compost. However the exact nature of the huge building and the how the fire started have not been released. The compost chips and shavings are known to heat up to very high temperatures. Upper Peninsula Breaking News was the only news media on the scene during the blaze. Those battling the fire including the City of Ishpeming Volunteer Fire Department with mutual aid from Ishpeming Township Fire Department. Also assisting at the scene were Ishpeming Police Department officer and paramedics from U.P. Health System – Bell, however no serious injuries were reported. The plant is located on Sunset Dr about a half mile west of Lakeshore Dr. just off U.S. 41 at the railroad overpass. The facility overseers are the Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Board and has been featured in several recent stories in industry magazines and news media feature stories. Officials were inspecting the damage on Sunday however no press releases were issued at press time. Upper Peninsula Breaking News has left messages for Ishpeming Fire Chief Edward Anderson, facility director Deborah Pellow, and the Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility Board of Directors Chairman Fred Benzie. The plant is used by Ishpeming Township, and the cities of Negaunee and Ishpeming, according to a Treatment Plant Operator November 2013 Magazine article by Jim Force as Negaunee was about to join. The facility’s Class A Exceptional Quality biosolids compost is in demand for local landscaping. And its staff loves working at the plant because several process improvements have made operations easier and safer. In part, facility director Debbie Pellow attributes the plant’s success to its administrative structure, consisting of a board that deals only with wastewater. “We supply treatment to the City of Ishpeming and to Ishpeming Township and are governed by the Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Board,” Pellow says. “Our board members must apply for the position. They bring an inherent interest and understanding for wastewater to the job. As a result, our board emphasizes keeping our employees safe.” The plant accepts wastewater from the City of Ishpeming (population 6,470) and Ishpeming Township (population 3,522). The city and township maintain their own collection systems: “We’re responsible for it once it hits the gate,” says Pellow. According to a Wednesday, January 12, 2011 article in Second Wave Media Upper Peninsula titled "Ishpeming Wastewater Treatment Plant leaps to forefront of industry innovation" by Becky Korpi: The municipal waste biosolids plant not only runs on renewable resources but is the first of its kind in Michigan. The plant, located at the Ishpeming Area Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility, combines municipal solid waste with the wood cuttings or shavings that result from tree cuttings to form a soil amendment that can be used for landscaping and gardening. The finished product has tested as being 99 percent pathogen-free as well as guarded against salmonella and is well below the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's limits for metal traces. According to a Marquette Mining Journal story titled "Area facility sells quality compost" on May 2015: To kill off any smell that would attract insects, it's then kept at least 113 degrees for another 14 nonconsecutive days.

Ishpeming city council meeting part 1
 
13:43
ISHPEMING — The Ishpeming City Council has voted unanimously to not pay its membership to the Lake Superior Community Partnership for 2011. The decision passed by four votes at Wednesday's regular council meeting with Mayor Pat Scanlon absent. "We're going to have our own chamber of commerce where there's a substantial amount of money being put into it," said Councilman Mike Tall, referring to the Ishpeming Downtown Development Authority's financial assistance in starting up the Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Area Chamber of Commerce in 2010. "I don't have anything against either operation, but you can't do both."

Zaagkii Wings & Seeds Project: Northern Michigan teens, KBIC tribal youth protect pollinators
 
10:58
Marquette, MI - Northern MI teens in are continuing their mission to protect pollinators during 2009 by helping butterflies & restoring native plants to areas of the Upper Peninsula. Billions of these bees are dying across the world in a syndrome called Colony Collapse Disorder & its not clear why - although human impact on the environment are among the suspected causes. A world without bees would mean world without food as was dramatically pointed out in the Jerry Seinfield 2007 comedy Bee movie. Bees go on strike causing plants across the world die - that means no food, no flowers, no trees - the death of civilization. After bees, the next best pollinators are butterflies. Marquette, MI area teens & Native American youth spent the summer of 2008 building butterfly houses - that are longer & slimmer than birdhouses & are lined with bark. Teens participating in the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Summer Youth Program built & painted the houses at the tribes Natural Resource Department along Lake Superior. KBIC Natural Resource Department Director Todd Warner said the Zaagkii Project is a good way for youth to become aware of their connection to natural resources & nature. The butterfly houses offer protection to butterflies that can enter thru tiny slits. Butterfly houses also offer rest to migrating monarchs & can be used for reproduction. Marquette teens have planted or distributed 26,000 native plant including at the Hiawatha National Forest greenhouse in Marquette. In the spring of 2009 some of the plants will be planted at several areas across northern MI including at Sand Point - a beach that the KBIC has been repairing from the effects of copper mining. About 100 years ago, the mine dumped copper processing waste into Lake Superior polluting miles of shoreline. KBIC capped the pollution & the native plants will be used to attract wildlife & restore the ecosystem. The Zaagkii Project was founded by the non- profit Cedar Tree Institute in Marquette that has sponsored numerous environment projects. The Zaagkii Project is sponsored by the CTI, Marquette County Juvenile Court, KBIC & the United States Forest Service. Future videos will include a look at a bee farm in Marquette County that fascinated Zaagkii Project teens who learned about the importance of pollinators.

2008 Odyssey: Wisconsin couple kayaking around Lake Superior
 
10:13
(Marquette, Michigan) - It's a 1,300 mile - two month - odyssey - kayaking around the always beautiful and sometimes treacherous Lake Superior Ashland, Wisconsin residents Alissa Weitz and Brian Castillo are promoting the protection of Lake Superior - the world's largest freshwater lake. The twenty somethings departed Bayfield, Wisconsin on July1 and hope to complete their journey by September. The kayaking duo left Marquette, Michigan on Tuesday afternoon, July 22, 2008 to continue their journey. They arrived in Marquette for Lake Superior Day 2008 - this year that was July 20 2008. Lake Superior Day is sponsored by the Lake Superior Bi-national Forum and is held annually on the third Sunday of July. Alissa and Brian spent Lake Superior Day hiking with friends and swimming including jumping off the tall cliffs at the city's "black rocks." A big part of their quest is educating the public about protecting Lake Superior and why the largest of the Great Lakes is so important.. The trek takes them through the Canada and the United States including Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Averaging 25 miles a day - with their longest day was about 40 miles. They encountered water temperatures as low as 38 degrees, fog outside of Marquette, rough waves outside of Houghton, Michigan that prevent them from rounding the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula - and instead cut through the Keweenaw Waterway. Thanks to Down Wind Sports in Marquette, Brian picked up a new kayak because of problems with the one used during the first part of their trek. Weitz is a native of Dubuque, Iowa and Castillo is a native of Madison, Wisconsin. Alissa is 26 years old and Brian is 23 years old. Graduates of the Northland College outdoor education program in Ashland, Wisconsin, the couple were competitors working for different kayak guiding companies when they met two years ago and fell in love. The Kayaker's (Alissa Weitz, Brian Castillo) "Session on Superior" blog about trip around the lake: http://www.sessiononsuperior.blogspot.com Please check out their blog and our other videos about Brian and Alissa. This video was made in cooperation with the Cedar Tree Institute, the Earth Keeper Initiative, the Earth Healing Initiative and the Turtle Island Project -- all northern Michigan-based non-profits seeking to protect Lake Superior.

Selfie Gone Bad: Detroit native from 'hood' gets prison for snapshot - Problem he's convicted felon
 
02:41
By Greg Peterson News Director, Owner Upper Peninsula Breaking News 906-273-2433 http://upbreakingnews.com/UpperPeninsulaSelfieLandsDetroitManFederalPrison (Marquette, MI) – It may be the costliest selfie ever taken in Michigan's Upper Peninsula – a place where selfies are common thanks to summer tourists visiting the beautiful wilderness and Lake Superior. Convicted felon Montdesze Antonio Johnson, 31, took a “picture on his phone” holding a pistol – and that selfie has put him in federal prison. Johnson got almost 6 years in prison but that's a lot better than the maximum sentence of 10 years. In an effort to possibly elicit leniency from the judge, Johnson's defense attorney immediately tried to set the sympathy bar very low using the “P” card or maybe the “H” card. Poverty stricken and “growing up around drugs” in the Detroit area, Johnson grew up “basically in the hood,” said Assistant U.S. Public Defender Elizabeth A. LaCosse. “He had a lot of issues growing up - he can be rehabilitated.” The gun has not been found and “nobody saw him with the gun,” LaCosse said. The owner “showed off the gun to my client and Ms. Flaska” adding before it disappeared the gun was in a case and stored in a shed. Johnson was was sentenced to nearly six years in federal prison for taking a selfie – the only problem is he was holding a pistol. If you have a felony record – like carjacking – you can't possess a gun – ever – not for any reason. The selfie might not seem like that big of a deal, however prosecutors say Johnson has a long history of getting into trouble – like convictions on two counts of carjacking. Johnson has “quite a record,” Judge Edgar said, adding the reason Johnson must be put in prison for public protection. Johnson grew up around poverty and drugs, LaCosse said, adding he started abusing marijuana and alcohol at age 12. The theft of cars and carjacking are not crimes that can easily be explained away, prosecutors said. “It's not like he stole bags of potato chips or packs of gum – cars are a big deal in America,” said Asst. U.S. Attorney Maarten Vermaat. “This is a big deal.” Before sentencing, Johnson apologized and said he had “no excuses.” “I apologize to the court,” Johnson said. Johnson said he'd “made better decisions” and described himself as “very impulsive.” Last week (June 22, 2016) in Marquette, federal Judge R. Allan Edgar sentenced Johnson to 70 months in federal prison and that equals five years and 10 months. After serving his federal prison sentence, Johnson will be under three years supervised release. Under a plea agreement with prosecutors, Johnson pleaded guilty to count one of the two-count indictment returned on Dec. 15. 2015 by a federal grand jury sitting in Marquette. The judge dismissed count two of the indictment possession of a stolen firearm. Johnson admitted being a "felon in possession of a firearm." The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The gun at issue is the Canik Model TP9SA 9mm semiautomatic Luger pistol - described as a Polymer pistol. The incident happened in Marquette Country between July 27 and Aug. 1, 2015 – and that's the rub – this case is about a selfie. Johnson has been in trouble with the law on previous occasions: Marquette District Court Judge Dennis H. Girard gave a 90-day jail sentence on June 29, 2015 to 30-year-old Montdesze Antonio Johnson of 2019 Longyear Ave in Marquette, MI on a state misdemeanor charge of larceny between $200-1,000 – and was given credit for 14 days serve and ordered to pay nearly $1,222 in costs/fines – that according to a news brief in the Mining Journal on Sept. 29, 2015 that listed June 2015 sentencings in district court. Montdesze Antonio Johnson was booked into the Macomb County, MI jail near Detroit on April 18, 2006, according to MobileMugs.com – that analyzed Public Records from the Michigan Department of Corrections. The felony information associated with this charge alleged that, on October 22, 2005, in Macomb County, MI, Defendant: Johnson entered a guilty plea on March 1, 2006, and sentenced to 4 to 20 years in prison on April 18, 2006. On Valentines Day 2006 a then 20-year-old Montdesze Antonio Johnson was arrested in Lansing, MI on numerous felonies including conspiracy to commit car jacking, car jacking, Third-degree fleeing from a police officer, and attempted car theft “receiving and concealing stolen property,” according to the website MugShotsOnline.com ------- Canik Model TP9SA 9mm semiautomatic pistol: Ct 1: Felon in possession of a firearm July 27-Aug28.2015 Marquette County Ct. 2 Possession of a stolen firearm Aug. 6-Aug. 28, 2015 Marquette County

Urgent: Join tribes, others who are blocking Sacred Eagle Rock from mining giant Kennecott
 
03:11
Levi Tadgerson, an Anishinaabe man who loves and respects the environment, narrates this video that invites everyone to join the encampment at the base of Eagle Rock - the sooner the better because a confrontation between mine owners, the police and those protecting Sacred Eagle Rock could happen at any moment. Tadgerson is a 22-year-old Northern Michigan University senior and member of Bay Mills Indian Community. In the video, you will see the many amazing things happening to protect Sacred Eagle Rock including an appearance by popular American Indian singer/songwriter Elder Bobby "Bullet" St. Germaine of Iron River, MI - an elder of the Lac Du Flambeau tribe. He sings and leads a thank you drum under the shadow of Sacred Eagle Rock. This video was shot on 4/29/2010. Background Eagle Rock has been a sacred place to hold ceremonies since the Ojibwa tribe was created and was seeded to the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) under treaties with the American government. The multi-tribe encampment, that could be raided by mine guards and police at any moment, is blocking the Eagle Mine Project by international mining giant Kennecott Minerals and its parent company Rio Tinto. A rare legally-permitted Eagle has been received to award feathers to those who honor their tribes by protecting sacred Eagle Rock and other honorable actions. Dozens of people from numerous tribes have spent days at the camp - and many others have brought supplies to the remote site on dirt roads about an hour from any city. The state of Michigan has claimed ownership to the land - but the lease with Kennecott only takes effect when the mine has secured all permits. Opponents say the mine must still get a federal EPA groundwater permit - but under a technicality the mine owners say they do not need the permit and recently put up No Trespassing signs. The American Indians rushed to the sight after Kennecott ordered the arrest of longtime mine opponent Cynthia Pryor of Big Bay, MI on April 20, 2010. Pryor was out for her usual walk on the Yellow Dog Plains when she spotted a bulldozer - and refused to leave saying the mine still had an EPA permit pending. Pryor is a member of the Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve. Among the Ojibwa tribes from Michigan and Wisconsin on sight are KBIC, Lac Du Flambeau, and Bay Mills Indian Community. As of April 30th, the mine guards has not confronted the campers - but the day before ordered no still or video cameras are allowed. That has campers worried about why what they do not want videotaped or documented - thus nerves are high. When a reporter arrived a short time later - the campers allowed him on the sight and this story was videotaped.

2011 Showdown on the Yellow Dog Plains Part 3: Truth as only a child could ask, video montage
 
09:03
Opponents of sulfide "acid" mining in Michigan's Upper Peninsula held strategy meetings in mid-February to galvanize their single ideal: There is no place for destructive sulfide mining on the Yellow Dog Plains or anywhere in the Great Lakes. (Marquette, Michigan) - Opponents of Kennecott Minerals and their subsidiaries have teamed with a legend in the battle against those committing environmental crimes. Environmental warrior Lois Gibbs was dubbed the "Mother of the Superfund" after she successfully battled chemical companies in the infamous Love Canal saga. In Part 3, seven-year-old Marquette youth Cody asks a direct question to Gibbs that highlights the bottom-line about the dangers of sulfide mining. As children are prone to do, Cody asked the most important question of the night after the adults had already asked their questions. Save the Wild U.P. and other sulfide mining opponents met with Boston attorney Peter B. Sessa, who represents the nonprofit Gibbs founded and is executive director - The Center for Health, Environment and Justice (CHEJ) in Falls Church, Virginia. For several days in February 2011, Boston attorney Peter Sessa, representing an environmental nonprofit founded by Lois Gibbs, helped sulfide mining opponents galvanize their battle plans Groups opposed to the mine will unseat and defeat all elected officials who support the mine. No Democrat or Republican will be spared as groups seek to expose criminal activities involving Kennecott, its lobbyists and Michigan's greedy elected officials. Gibbs believes the pristine beauty of northern Michigan is worth saving and said the numerous sulfide mines planned will leave huge areas of the U.P. a moonscape. The Anishinaabe nation is sickened that Kennecott Eagle Minerals is planning to dynamite through sacred Eagle Rock in the spring of 2011 - the desecration of a sacred religious, spiritual and ceremonial site for the Ojibwa. Ojibwa singer Bobby Bullett says placing the entrance of the sulfide mine in Eagle Rock shows a sickness of mind in humans and international corporations have reached. In fact, all of mines opened by Kennecott Minerals have turned into environmental disasters - and the company has been accused of murder and human rights violations. Many Ojibwa believe that the desecration of Eagle Rock will lead to death and disaster for all those who enter the mine - that opponents hope to halt in its tracks through ongoing litigation and new tactics that will be unveiled in 2011.

WFXD: Rev. Warren Geier on Dr. Walter Brueggemann U.P. visit
 
01:02
WFXD Radio Interview: Rev. Warren Geier on visit by Biblical scholar/author Walter Brueggemann Noted biblical scholar and author Walter Brueggemann will hold free public talks in the Marquette area this week (Oct. 8 & 9, 2007) on the "connection of Bible and environmental crisis" including Upper Peninsula issues like a proposed sulfide mine. WFXD Radio News Director Walt Lindala interview event organizer Rev. Warren Geier of Bethany Lutheran Church in Negaunee. Interview was aired on Oct. 5, 2007 on WFDX Radion Marquette, MI. Time: 1:00 (Marquette) - Noted biblical scholar and author Walter Brueggemann will hold free public talks in the Marquette area during early October on the "connection of Bible and environmental crisis" including Upper Peninsula issues like a proposed sulfide mine. "My presentation will consider the way in which the Bible empowers and calls us to care about our environment," Dr. Brueggemann said. "The connection of Bible and environmental crisis is an invitation to a new, responsible sanity - after too much economic insanity." Dr. Brueggemann will speak and lead workshops in the Marquette area on October 8 - 9, 2007. All of Brueggemann's appearances will be followed by a chance for public questions and comments. Brueggemann will touch on Upper Peninsula environmental issues like the proposed sulfide mine in Marquette County. "Among those issues are mining that wrecks the land, deforestation and all the temptations to exploit our God-given resources," Brueggemann said. "My work will be to show the biblical texts that matter - those texts draw very close to immediate issues of abuse." Rev. Warren Geier, pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church in Ishpeming, said Brueggemann has the "unique ability to speak to general audiences and to bring out the truth of Biblical texts as they relate to our contemporary religious, cultural, political and economic situation." "Using the Bible he will challenge the assumptions and certainties of both conservatives and liberals - issues like sulfide mining are not just about economics versus care of the environment," said Geier. "For people of faith there is a theological component to environmental issues and Dr. Brueggemann will help all of us to understand it." Brueggemann will hold a free public lecture at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 8 at the University Center at Northern Michigan University on "Theology of Creation and the Environmental Crisis." A preaching workshop for clergy and lay church workers led by Dr. Brueggemann will be held on from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday Oct. 9 at Messiah Lutheran Church in Marquette. The cost is $20 with lunch included and a reservation is required. The discussion will focus on "Biblical Preaching in the Shadow of the Empire." Brueggemann will hold a free public talk at 7 p.m. on Oct. 9 at Bethany Lutheran Church in Ishpeming entitled "Journey to the Common Good: Reading the Bible Towards God's Future" which will address issues concerning how we interpret scripture. The events are co-sponsored by Lutheran Campus Ministry and the departments of Philosophy and English at NMU, the Northern Great Lakes Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and Bethany Lutheran Church in Ishpeming. A world renowned Old Testament scholar and author, Dr. Brueggemann connects Old Testament scholarship to contemporary issues. He has authored more than 58 books, hundreds of articles and several commentaries on books of the Bible. "Walter Brueggemann is recognized as one of the most prominent Old Testament scholars of our time," Geier said. "He sees the Bible as a work of poetic imagination which offers an alternative to what have become the accepted ways of our world." Brueggemann participated in Bill Moyers acclaimed PBS television series on the Book of Genesis. A graduate of Elmhurst College, Professor Brueggemann studied at Eden Theological Seminary, receiving his Doctorate of Divinity from Union theological Seminary, New York, and a Ph.D from Saint Louis University. Brueggemann was professor of Old Testament at Eden before joining the faculty at Columbia Theological Seminary in 1986. He is currently William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia.
