Our private property rights are the essence of liberty. You don't want to miss this.

Many of us have expressed concern that intrusion by the federal government into state and local affairs is something that is not being addressed or even recognized. That intrusion will be framed in very personal terms at a presentation in early February in Westmoreland County about an ongoing struggle between a fellow Pennsylvanian and the EPA.

Mr. Robert Brace (Waterford, PA, Erie County), a farmer and an official in the Pennsylvania Land Owners' Association, will share his personal story about his family's ongoing struggle with the EPA. This federal bureaucracy designated portions of his farm a wetland. He was offered no compensation for this "taking." He can't farm it, but he still has to pay taxes on it.

If you're interested in hearing his story, in assessing the state of our property rights or in learning more about the Pennsylvania Land Owners Association (, then consider attending this presentation. Please call ahead and register at the number below to help the organizers with headcount.
