Bodie Ghost Town Supporters Say “No” to Gold in Them Thar Hills!

Excerpts:

A new Gold Rush may soon take place in the Bodie Mountains, home of California's authentic Wild West ghost town. The Mono County Board of Supervisors tomorrow is to consider a resolution to open up Bodie Hills to gold mining and other development. However, environmentalists are quick to point out that it was the gold rush bust that eventually turned Bodie into a ghost town.

Sally Miller, senior conservation representative with The Wilderness Society, says that if the supervisors support the resolution they'll be handing mining companies a "gift on a golden platter."
