They are requesting help from Colorado’s congressional leaders. Director of the San Luis Valley Ecosystem Council, Christine Canaly says that the location of the drilling would not make sense because, but Bureau of Land Management (BLM) staffers have been looking over these matters for over a year. However, BML officials refuse to discuss potential impacts.

Correction:

In the La Voz edition dated May 16 in our La Vida Latina titled “Landmark feed mill closing” we listed Cameron Mayberry as a consultant for NERA Economic Consulting as an informational source. Mr. Mayberry is not in anyway associated with NERA Economic Consulting and is a CFA (Certified Financial Analyst) for a private company. La Voz regrets the error.
