The Capital Sand Company is planning to mine around the Millersville area, but Cape County residents had a chance to attend a meeting Thursday night at Drury Lodge in Cape Girardeau. State Representative Donna Lichtenegger says that 50 to 60 people filled the room and that Capital Sand provided the best presentation that she had ever seen. Lichtenegger says that people do not want planning and zoning, and this is a consequence of that. Lichenegger says that if you have any questions you can call the Department of Natural Resources at 800-361-4827 or Capital Sand Company at 573-634-3020.
