Environmentalists are expected to pack a public hearing in Ladysmith today, opposing legislation to repeal a moratorium on mining in Wisconsin. Mining supporters say it can be done safely and will be a boon to the state economy. They point to the closed Flambeau mine as a success story. Opponents claim mining will harm the environment and they too point to Flambeau to make their case. Media Trackers has learned that two prominent opponents have extremist backgrounds. One such opponent is Al Gedicks.
