FOX 2 TV NEWS INTERVIEW

John Pertzborn from Fox 2 News contacted us and wanted to do a feature on our story.  The program aired on Wednesday, October 3 around 7:15 a.m.  

The video interview with Jack Ginnever is here!   They mispronounced Jack's last name at the beginning (Kevin Steincross was a lot closer).  And they label it as a "Lead Smelter" which is wrong.  That is unless the story has changed in the last few days!!  You may also notice some Rams football footage in the middle of the video.  Now we have something really newsworthy!!  Maybe the Rams are constructing the smelter!!

If more interviews are done we will post them here when they are available.

Here is another segment that Fox 2 TV News did on August 30, 2007.  This was before the big city meeting on September 5 where about 400 people showed up.  You might also notice that they put Jim Duncan's name underneath of the video segment where Tom Kerr is talking.
