> "Now, more than 55 years later, she’s winning where it counts — in 
> Washington, D.C. Rom, 67, is the brains and, many say, the heart behind the 
> Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters, a swift and surprisingly effective 
> national campaign that would seal off the BWCA by simply imposing a permanent 
> ban on mining in its watershed. Thanks largely to that effort, the federal 
> government is on the verge of issuing a decision that could put a halt to a 
> $2.8 billion copper mine that has been proposed on the edge of the wilderness 
> area.
> The decision could mark a turning point for Minnesota — a shift in the 
> balance between the state’s long heritage of mining and the vision to protect 
> one of the few purely wild places left in the country...There is more at 
> stake than [Rom's] love for the million-acre wilderness that shaped her own 
> life. She longs to create a community that thrives on preserving the natural 
> wonder around it, rather than exploiting it." -- Star Tribune
