Nice to see Granite is so committed to "working" with the community. Total rejection and they state they will appeal the decision. How is that for true colors?

How many times do we need to revisit this issue? Liberty Quarry, are you hoping if you throw enough s_ _ _ on the wall eventually one will stick? I don't want to hear your b.s. about how this will not affect our air quality. Yeh, just like how all the people who were involved in the twin tower clean up were told the air was safe and now they're dying of cancer. Color us stupid . . . . .I don't think so!!!! You're talking to a respiratory therapist!

Let us hope the Riverside County Board of Supervisors does the same to the Granite Construction Incorporated proposed quarry project near Temecula as the Riverside County Planning Commission did, to reject the proposed quarry for its overall lack of merit and its danger to the community. GCI could rely only on the economic argument to make this proposed project fly, but instead it failed and crashed. Maybe GCI will get the message, and take a hike.
