Editor: I believe that those of us who love this Island and are not involved in the corporate potato industry, or have the desire to get elected/re-elected, do not want the moratorium on deep water wells lifted.
We do not want our government to allow the depletion of this natural resource or other attacks on nature for any reason, least of all personal profit.
Plan B was stupid enough, lifting the moratorium on deep water wells is just plain crazy. Given the information we have from community watershed groups, who could disagree with the fact that we need to protect and care for our limited water resources.
Honestly, I get heartsick just thinking about it.
