Area students learn that 'all government is local'
Area students voted down a measure to bring a diamond mine, and potentially $2.5 million in annual revenue, to Grundy County during a special meeting Tuesday at the Grundy County Administration Building.
"The diamond mine would not be a significant benefit due to the problems it would cause," said Catherine Leturno, a home-schooled 8th grader who shared her opinion on the resolution at the forefront of a mock board meeting.
The meeting was part of the Grundy County's University of Illinois Extension's annual Government Day.
