You all have some idea how much rock is leaving our rock mines as you wait for those long, long, trains mostly at night. Every night! Be aware of what is going on. The rock miners, many of them foreign companies (Cemex), are making a fortune on our rock and leaving great big holes in their place ripe for contamination. Here is picture gallery. KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND YOU!!! This is now happening on the way to the Florida Keys and Lynda Bell has great support from the rock miners down there.

Blasting, creating giant holes that can contaminate our well-field, that is what is going on West of the Florida Turnpike. And where is all that rock going on those trains? Ask yourself that?
Here is a very good paper on the Rock Mining issue from the Geological Society of America.
