The hearing was basically rules and procedures and to determine who was eligible (within approximately 1 mile of Tommy Davis Slick Machines) and thus directly affected by his rock crushing machine as opposed to the general populace. Will do some video in next day or so.  The first part of the audio is the *pre* meeting.

Only takes one person to represent your interest-not strengths in numbers, attorney speaking has no affiliatation with TCEQ, is independent, and acting as administrative law judgte (about 6 minutes into audio). ALJ judge makes recommendation to TCEQ, commission looks at it and votes yes or no. Today only a prelimanary hearing, adopt a schedule and determine who is eligible to be a party to the proceedings and then on to the trial. After that, ALJ judge makes recommendations based on evidence, arguments, etc. Commission takes this up at open meeting and votes to approve or not, issues final order. If had 50-100 people interested.. people would be aligned and appoint someone as represenative for them. Similar interests aligned together, spokesperson represents that group. That would be attorney Mr Lowry for Chalk Mountain Foundation. (gentleman on right in photo above).

The ALJ took questions and asked if there was anyone who was not on the list already as interested parties that wanted to be and thought he or she was eligible.

County Commissioners and candidates.

Tommy Davis Slick Machines

Klauser-naturalist. (sp? might be Clauser)

Yearwood asking question about whether dust has to leave the property or not.

TCEQ representative.

Tommy Davis and his long long ponytail.

Judge Maynard asked if people who don't live in the county can protest, used NRC as example.

Up front to add names to list if want to be party, had to prove that the air quality affects each one.

Steve Allen

Jeannie Lane

R Singleterry

Klauser (not sure if I"m spelling that right)

Yearwood

(I was wondering when I was listening to him why no one has made a complaint yet against his rock crusher. Anyone know?)

Parham-he owns the property that the rock crusher is on.

Once they determined who was eligible to be in the hearing, and then divied up people on who was for or against, some more procedural information was discussed before the hearing ended around noon.

I believe Mr. Yearwood does not have a rock crusher.  If my information is correct, he merely owns mineral rights on land, possibly near the proposed rock crusher to be operated by Tommy Davis DBA Slick Machines.   OR, he could be the person that pulled the temporary permit for Tommy Davis to operate a rock crusher on land owned  by Corky Underwood, directly across the highway from the Parham property.

And as a Somervell County/Chalk Mountain Resident, it's not the rock crushing business that is the problem in this case.  It is the location...  Too close to homes, too close to HWY 67, too close to historical sites, and areas visited by tourists (who play a major role in Somervell counties revenues)...  The air pollution, destruction of Endangered Species habitat, the dynamite blasting so close to all of the above is a major concern.   And the fact that Tommy Davis has a reputation and a history of not following rules or regulations, and there will be virtually no one to police his activity if he is given the permit.
