More letters to the Arcadian June 14, 2018

Side note to Debbie Taylor re your comment about how important phosphate is to get clothes clean.  Phosphates were banned from use back in the early 1970s due to extreme environmental damage from water runoff into our water system.  And yet, our clothes still get clean.

Letter to Arcadian – Be Accountable!

May we all stand and be accountable

Topic of the day … is phosphate [stripand- rape] mining good or bad for DeSoto County? Will the citizens be heard, or will their pleas fall on deaf ears dull of hearing? Will it be profit over people, again?

I wanted to make a public announcement that I pray for this county and all that goes on here. Nothing is done or said without God knowing. May we all stand and be accountable for ourselves now and for the future of DeSoto County and the surrounding county, especially those who get their drinking water from the low river/ Horse Creek through the Peace River/ Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority. Just how many wells, wetlands, flag ponds, sloughs, named and unnamed stream tributaries to the Peace River and Horse Creek, are within the proposed mining boundary in DeSoto County?

There is a scheduled planning/zoning board meeting in Arcadia on June 5-6. Please attend, thank you.
