Meeting to focus on stopping lakes shooting by Coast Guard

November 22, 2006 Muskegon, MI – A Spring Lake attorney and physician opposed to the U.S. Coast Guard’s proposal to establish 34 weapons training zones on the Great Lakes has organized a meeting to discuss the controversial plan.

Dr. Elliot Grysen said he scheduled the “brainstorming session,” scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 7 at the Spring Lake Holiday Inn, to give West Michigan residents a chance to discuss “means to ensure environmental protection of our water without compromising security on the Great Lakes.”

Guest speaker will be Mark Fink, an environmental attorney in Duluth, Minn., who has threatened to sue the Coast Guard in a bid to keep the agency from firing up to 430,000 lead-based bullets, amounting to 6,900 pounds of lead, into the Great Lakes each year.
