I commend Jim Russell on his letter "Tour-Ed Mine" (Dec. 31).

As a resident of Fawn, I also find the appearance and condition of Tour-Ed Mine sad. Tour-Ed is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. In addition to the site's overall appearance, the mine's head trustee, Michael Husarik, leases a portion of the property to family and close friends for hunting. The individuals to whom Mr. Husarik leases — with his support — have angrily confronted children and families seen hiking, bike-riding or quad-riding on or near the property.

I would love to donate funds in order to assist in the "revival" of Tour-Ed Mine. However, I fear where the money would go. Mr. Husarik and the board of trustees have already demonstrated their lack of interest in maintaining the site for the community.

I hope more people speak out as Mr. Russell has. The Tour-Ed Mine board should clean up the site for the community to enjoy and not just its families and close friends.
