The Battle of Athens II - Pigs vs. Parks This is a group of citizens in North East Missouri where Cargill and Terry Daw, are planning to build a 5,000 head hog factory 1.5 miles from Battle of Athens State Park. "It simply does not make sense that the people of Missouri have invested millions of dollars in creating and protecting our parks, and the same DNR that is charged with protecting them freely gives permits to large corporations to damage our parks. You have a voice that can help tip the scale in the direction of protecting our parks and our way of life. We can rise to the occasion and design our futures from the inside out, and not let the state government, unelected bureaucrats, and large companies design it for us from the outside in. We must join together to make our own BIG STINK." Betty Halberstadt
