Cheri Steinmetz, former board member for the High Plains Initiative in Goshen County says during her time on that board she observed practices that left her uncomfortable and turned her into a strong advocate for local control of land use decisions.

This weekend, the Parkway Plaza in Casper is the venue for an event featuring the author of the book "Behind the Green Mask; U.N Agenda 21". Author, Rosa Koire, will talk about how smart growth and sustainability have become blackened terms for those concerned with property rights.

"Wyoming does need to hear what Rosa Koire has to say, because without being aware of these things, they're slipping in underneath the radar and we don't recognize them, because the words sound so benign and innocuous."

The event happens at 6:30 pm, Saturday, October 27th at the Parkway Plaza. It's free, but Steinmetz says reservations are recommended.

The Parkway Plaza Hotel and Convention Center, is located at 123 West E Street in Casper (From I-25 take EXIT 188A)
