Does any one remember that the right to hold private property is still considered a basic right in our society?

To The Editor:
I received an e-mail from the M-ARK Project today inviting me to sign a petition to our governor in favor of the purposed Belleayre Project. I have been against this development for some time now to the extent that I had added my signature to the Save the Mountain petition.
