From WPTV: …Lake Point is a rock mining business near Lake Okeechobee first approved as a subdivision in 2008.  A few years later, Hurchalla began sending emails to commissioners expressing concerns over wetlands.

…Hurchalla’s attorney says her client was a private citizen, with no control over what the commission would do.

“Maggy Hurchalla has no authority to make the county commission or individual commissioners do anything,” said Virginia Sherlock.

The trial is expected to last into next week.
