I certainly agree that the rider wasn't "buried". It became an issue because the original language mandated a 10 year renewal until New Mexico Senator Jeff Binghaman took issue with the mandate. It was debated, modified, and then passed. The final form frankly doesn't change anything, as the Interior Dept always had it in its power to renew the lease. The rider just emphasizes that it's within the discretion of the Interior Dept to decide this.

The worst part of Amy Trainer's hatchet job on the oyster farm was the squandered moment when all eyes were on her. She managed to rake her cat claws across the face of the community, even while the community tries to heal itself from the wrongdoing of her organization and others of its ilk.
My message to Trainer is "Leadership, not lap dogs".
Show some leadership quality, for goodness sakes.
On the other hand, kudos to Mr Creque for his eloquence. Pity that Trainer didn't fashion her comments using similar high standards.

The Drakes bay oyster farm is not sustainable on the local community clinics, and other County/state/Federal services due to its Employees being 99.9% illegal aliens.

Just stating the facts.

Wouldn't that imply they have at least 1,000 employees?

I am so tired of all the narrow minded nonsense that our "leadership" spews out without ever getting the big picture.

This oyster farm is well run, is a vital part of our shoreline and since so much of the south-eastern oyster beds have been ruined by the big oil business...we might expect some intelligent individual to see how important this oyster farm is to American. But since our leaders are practically giving away America I guess we can let the Chinese have the oyster production project as well.

WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!

The oyster industry is very big in Washington State, much bigger than anything Ca. can produce, don't fret it being taken over by the chinese.

Don't take our oysters. Lunny's oysters are the best.
