A tangled web of issues

-A A +A

I was going through copies of all my old editorials, (and there were quite a few) and to my surprise, most of the topics could have been written concerning the same problems Florida faces today!

Environmental issues, conservation of water supplies, population growth, tourism, jobs, education and the big mirage (should I even mention it) the hospital!

Oh, there were others, too many to mention.

We've been through several governors, a lot of local politicians and we still have the same problems, why? Maybe it's because all those issues mentioned are woven into a tangled web of direct conflict.

For example: Water conservation would have conflict with agriculture, tourism, golf courses, tree and cattle farms and the selling of our water to other areas. Environmental issues seem to have problems with all of the above.

Come to think of it, so would population growth.

And so it goes, when each elected official fails to untangle that web, we elect a new political hopeful with their political promises, only to be trapped in that web!

I wish I had submitted this letter earlier, but I am a slow thinker.
