      What can you be thinking?
      Only a very few of these will be local jobs! Modern high tech mining provides mostly specialized jobs that local people are not educated for! This will be a shut-out, not an opportunity for us!!!!!! The Community Council voted for the Usibelli Wishbone Project out of ignorance, bless their hearts!!!!
      At the same time that new jobs for us will NOT be created by these mines, real local jobs such as guiding and the many other jobs in our tourism industry, not to speak of subsistence fishing, commercial agriculture, and our own precious freedom to traverse the wilderness, will be very seriously, very NEGATIVELY impacted by toxic, cancer causing, anti-future coal mining. JOBS WILL BE LOST, REAL ALASKAN COMMUNITIES WILL BE LOST, AND WE WILL BE LOST. And for whose benefit? China’s? Korea’s? Mr. and Mrs. Usibelli’s?
