Update from Linda Brown (05/12/99)
Dear Friends, sorry I have been off the air for so long. We are feverishly working on our own report to summit to the Minnesota Historic Preservation Office. It should be ready to summit soon. The bill in the House of Representatives may be heard tommorrow and we will try to get our amendment attached to it. I hear that MNDOT has their own team over at the legislatures trying to counteract our lobbying efforts. I understand that all our websites are being monitored by officials, we knew this was a risk when we decided to tell the world about what is happening here. So, If my updates aren't as open or as frequent as they once were, please forgive me. We still desparately need your support and prayers. please don't hesitate to call me if you need more detailed info. We will not quit. The 8th court of appeals heard oral arguments today for the Park and River Alliance lawsuit. We are anxiously waiting their decision, this may take up to 4-6 weeks before we hear. We are still waiting for the Hennepin courts hearing on why Minnehaha Park land should not be transfered to MNDOT for this road. Our supporters here are still working on ways to stop this road. We continue to ask for your support and prayers.
Pidamiya, Love Linda
