Today there was an election for our local Water Board. The incumbents want to purchase a local golf course, which is obsolete (?why? I have no idea). It is a water drainage area that filters ground runoff and recharges the aquifer, and they want to maintain our source of clean water. The opposition says that there will be big taxes to pay, which is true. So this is a hard choice that reflects the hard choices we will all have to make about natural resources vs. monetary resources, both of which are scarce these days.
