Dear Editor,

I am writing in response to Tyson Foods and a real estate firm. They are trying to shove chicken barns down peoples' throats.

I live at 3289 Sims Road. There are 10 chicken barns within a half-mile already and they want to build 10 more about a quarter-mile from me.

All my neighbors do not want the barns. Why are they building so many barns in western Bedford County? It is because of the natural gas and city water.

I would like to remind our politicians that we need help to stop this or come election time, it might be a different vote.

Henry Pierce
