The number of people in Missouri speaking out against the management of the Missouri River by the Army Corps of Engineers is growing.
Click to hear KMZU’s Chris Clift talk with Ben Gibson:
After watching a TV news report showing what Gibson thought were low levels behind Gavin’s Point Dam on the South Dakota/Nebraska border, he found an article saying conditions on Lewis and Clark Lake are “unaffected” by the flooding. The article says campsite business is good, and so is the fishing.
That article from the Sioux City Journal can be found at http://siouxcityjournal.com/news/local/article_2da6b07b-39ae-5f9e-a7ff-bb6611df806b.html
Gibson is encouraging residents to attend meetings being held Friday by staffers from Rep. Sam Graves’ office.
Those meetings will be held at 8:30 a.m. at the Carroll County Courthouse in Carrollton, at the Bethany Public Library at 10 a.m., at the Chariton County Courthouse in Keytesville at 10:30 a.m., at the Howard County Courthouse in Fayette at 12:30 p.m. and at the Cooper County Courthouse in Boonville at 2 p.m.
