Over the past weeks and days we've had stories leading up to next week's advisory vote about leasing land in the Oneida county town of Lynne for mining.

We've  talked to the vote 'no' group, Protect The Willow.

Monday we had a retired mining engineer talking about the differences between a U.P. mine and the Lynne site.

Later this week we'll talk to the Lac du Flambeau band of Lake Superior Chippewa about their opposition.

Today we hear from Scott Manley, Senior Vice-President of Government Relations for Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, who are asking for a 'yes' vote. Manley says from WMC's view, the vote is about job creation...

Opponents of the mine have a website at protectthewillow.org
