Mendota community URGENTLY seeks assistance

Karen Clark, of the MN House of Representatives, District 61A,
Minneapolis, visited the Sacred Spring today and spoke with individuals
at the Mendota Community encampment.

She told those there that she wanted to know more about what was going
on and how she could help.  It is important that she hear from all of us
who are concerned about the Mendota Sacred Sites, and the reroute of
Highway 55.  Phone calls, snail mail letters, and emails.
