Marquette, MI – The inaugural show of IntheRightMind.net aired on Sunny 101.9 Saturday February 18, 2012 with host Dan Adamini. Two issues were discussed which include NMU picketing regarding healthcare with-holdings and the proposed new County Road 595 in west Marquette County.
See the In the Right Mind Show Page on WKQSFM.com for previous shows and audio archives.
10 Callers participated.
Caller #1 commented that he and his wife recommend cutting the extra expenses out your personal budget so you can afford extra healthcare with-holding.
Caller #2 said the the Marquette County master plan did not include a road on the west end of Marquette County. It’s clearly a Kennecott Mine road. There are more than just environmental groups opposed to it.
Caller #3 was in favor of the road, but proposed doing an official poll.
Caller #4 thought this was the Shopping Show and requested Trenary Old Country Rye Bread.
Caller #5 was very opposed to the new road, saying they may not find the proper ore base they are looking for, the disturbance may prove to be fruitless and we may not see any tax from the Kennecott Mine either.
Caller #6 was opposed to the road saying it affects homes, cottages, and camps with noise pollution with loud trucks, land disturbances.
Caller #7 say it’s going to happen we might as well get used to it.. the mine is here, with a new road property values will increase.
Caller #8 indicated that loggers have used the roads out there as is with heavy loads, we should just fix what we have.. straighten corners, add passing lane to create less disturbance but better roads.
Caller #9 a Marquette Caller said parody song on Long and winding road was extremely offensive, violent, arrogant, insensitive with paving a road with protesters. Her comments were shared with the show host and he agreed, saying he is considering toning down the “paving with protesters part down” although it is parody, which goes past reality.
Caller #10 called back and said even though he isn’t in favor of the road he very much enjoyed both songs including the second song about the road. He realized it was a parody song which goes over the top in a fun way, stretching the issues so we can chuckle even if we are opposed to it. He also noted this new show is fantastic for Marquette County. The is no show like it and he fully supports the effort even if he disagrees with some of the issues.
