Opposes confinement

To the editor:

I would like to address this letter to the federal and state legislatures, the DNR, the Iowa Select hog business and Richard Stark, owner of the First American Bank and many acres of farm ground.

The people of Duncombe do not want your hog operations within 1 mile of our town. We don’t want the odor, we don’t want the manure leaching into our water, we don’t want devaluation of our property, and we don’t want it to be leaching into Brushy Creek.

This Master Matrix they sent in is a joke. All the questions should be answered, not just less than half that makes it look OK. Hog confinements should not be allowed close to any town or water source.
