Letter about lies in Houston County...


Mon, Mar 23rd, 2015
Posted in Rushford Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

Have you heard the 3 biggest lies in Houston County?

1. Lie number one; we can’t ban frac sand mining because we will get sued. The truth is both the County Attorney and County’s consulting land use attorney said the opposite. Both said you can ban frac sand mining as long as you had a good reason supported by finding of facts. All this is on video tape. The County Attorney has provided the finding of facts. The truth is the County is about equally likely to be sued whatever their decision and there is no guarantee of winning or losing either way.

2. Lie number two; we want strict regulation, not a ban. The truth is any kind of regulation has a prerequisite of monitoring, enforcing, and compliance. The truth is that has never happened in Houston County. It is an oxymoron to think that regulation would be enforced here.

3. Lie number three; if we ban a certain type of mining it would constitute a taking from people. The truth is that it is just weird that you would be so concerned about taking the right to a certain kind of mining from one property owner and have no concern about taking the rights to property value, peace and quiet, beauty, clean air, clean water, and quality of life from several neighboring property owners.

Now that we have exposed these lies would certain commissioners please quit using them as an excuse for not doing the will of the people?
