Just like Jethro Bodine, Minebuster has been doing some ciphering.
And sometimes my mind works in mysterious ways.
For instance when I look at the map of the 2,300, 200 foot below the water table open pit limestone mine as proposed by the Baupost Group aka Highland Companies I noticed something.
Take a looky see if you notice it too.
What is missing on their proposed map, besides every living creature, tree, bird, house and human being is the municipally owned 3rd line and 4th line of Melancthon between sideroads 15 and 20.
I would like to say the nerve of these idiots just thinking they could buy a muicipally owned asset (meaning WE the taxpayers own it, not council) and then blast if off the face of the earth but clearly they have no limits.
So if even for one moment Council dared risking the revolt that would follow should they sell these roads to anyone, here is some food for thought.
Underneath those municipally owned roads is limestone, worth about $18 million an acre.
Do the math and you will see that there is about 28 acres of municipally owned road in question here.
And at $18 million an acre, that would mean the purchase price would be about $500 millon bucks.
You are welcome.
