Stop this travesty

Friday, May 9, 2008

To the Editor:

Due to ill-health, I have had to drop out of active participation in the landfill matter. I regret that I cannot join in to protest and stop this awful treatment of this wonderful world that we hold in trust for our children and grandchildren and hopefully many future generations. All because of money and profit and in the name of big business.

Big business has over years brought some good things but the current political climate of greasing the wheels for wealthy individuals to profit personally flies in the face of our God-given responsibility to protect this world. Surely this travesty can be stopped. The Marshall County leaders must come to their senses and not be motivated by petty politics.

Rehwell Farm on Blue Creek Road, Cornersville, has been in my family since the 1930s.

It has been loved and protected, farmed and cared for by my grandfather, my father, my two brothers, and by our friend, Sehon McConnell, our associate through his 97th year, who made the land what it is today.
