Submission Text
A retired Oregon physician, I am grateful I have more time to hike in the beautiful Columbia gorge. Recently I took a Petroglyph Tour of Tsagaglalal ("She Who Watches"). The coal trains run by this archeological site. There I saw evidence of coal that flies off the coal trains that are currently permitted. There was further evidence of coal mounds that were removed. I cannot imagine how much coal will spoil our air and water quality should the Millennium Bulk Terminals-Longview be approved. The health of Oregonians should not be compromised by approval of this project. Nor should this archeological site be compromised. Please reject this proposal.
