Praise for “Rocky Mountain” A Documentary on Yacolt Mountain Quarry was offered by several area journalists and filmmakers:
“A lot of hard work has gone into telling the story of the Yacolt Mountain Quarry from multiple perspectives. I recommend watching this professional series to understand the complexities of this controversial issue.”– Ernie Geigenmiller, editor and publisher of Lacamas Magazine
“Jacob Granneman and Clark County Today’s outstanding work on this documentary surrounding the Yacolt Mountain Quarry controversy is extremely insightful and informative. Both sides of the issue are clearly explained and portrayed equally.”– Joanna Yorke, managing editor of Vancouver Business Journal
“In a world full of complex issues that are expected to be solved with immediate reactions, sound bites, and polarizing opinions, it’s refreshing to see a long-form documentary series diving into subjects that affect us all. Exploring all sides of an issue and everyone involved with respect allows me to empathize as a business owner, home owner, and Clark County resident. One is not greater than the other. When we work together as a community, we grow stronger.”– Chris Martin, Chris Martin Studios and Video Production Professor at Clark College
“Jacob Granneman’s ‘Rocky Mountain’ is a visually stunning and highly detailed report on the controversy surrounding mining activity at the Yacolt Mountain Quarry, the largest facility of its kind in Clark County and an operation that neighbors contend causes harm to the environment and disturbs the quality of life in a region that is probably best described as heavenly … The perspectives of each stakeholder are detailed and the feelings of each speaker are captured by way of thoughtful interview segments.”– Dee Anne Finken, former journalist and Journalism program director at Clark College
