ATTENTION CALHOUN COUNTY RESIDENTS: Please sign this petition to voice your concerns and tell the powers that be that you are against these HUGE hog confinements. Not only will they impact the people living in the area; they will also affect anyone that drives down old 20. They plan on spreading the manure all over, and it's going to stink! The people wanting to build these are not Calhoun County residents, and once built they will be here to stay! Time is of the essence!
