Do you have photos of the mess that mining makes? The Mineral Policy Center, a group working to reform hardrock mining laws, is holding a photo contest to get the picture out that mining is desecrating the Western landscape. Photos must be submitted by May 15; awards will be given in two categories: protection and devastation. For more details, call Francine Madden at 202/887-1872 or visit the Web site at www.mineralpolicy.org.
