    Just because something is adhering to EPA standards doesn't make it safe to learn, live, and work in the proximity of the beast. Per their own advertisement (that they so thoughtfully placed in a low circulation newspaper the day before Thanksgiving) the sheer amount of what they'll be pumping out is astronomical.

    Our streets have no lights or sidewalks. We can gaze at the stars at night without light pollution, until Rockwool comes in with air and light pollution. I did not move here for that.

    I am greatly concerned about the proximity of this factory to my daughter’s school. I have one daughter with asthma. There needs to be strict regulations regarding the pollutants that will be produced while making this product. The City Of Ranson, Jefferson County Commissioners, and ESPECIALLY the Board Of Education have greatly failed the children of these schools by allowing and/or signing off on this project. Our kids are worth more than any job, and especially a measly 150 jobs that aren’t even guaranteed to local people.

    Jefferson County is such a wonderful place to live. I want to make sure that we preserve its beauty and pure air for our children's' sake.

    I'm concerned for my property values (since I will move if this plant is built), and I'm heartbroken for those who will not have that choice.

    Protect our children and those at risk for respiratory illnesses. We either need strict regulations or no factory considering the projected pollution output in close proximity to schools.

    I do not want Rockwool anywhere near my house and I am scared for my children’s health.

    Our elected officials think 150 jobs are worth 310,291,620 pounds of Regulated Air Pollutants released into our air annually? Come on, Jefferson County, we're better than this!

    The lack of serious forethought by our elected officials about the impacts of this plant on the quality of life of Jefferson County citizens is appalling. The county has always prided and marketed itself as a tourist attraction of stunning beauty and historical significance. How does bringing this manufacturing plant jibe with the state's motto, "Wild and Wonderful"?

    I just moved here with my infant twins. Please don't make me raise them amongst this pollution.

    This factory does not belong in Jefferson County. The 150 jobs are not worth the 100's of pounds of air pollution.
