Protecting Green Valley

They're coming from the left of us and the right: From the mines they've sent arsenic into our drinking water. Big money cares not one wit about the " old people who are just going to die soon anyway" who live in Green Valley and drink water. We must demand that the state of Arizona protect her citizens there. From the other side of Highway 19 come rumblings of more mining. Raping the Santa Ritas is the mantra of a Canadian mining company, but the geezers who are "all going to die soon anyway" won't mind. Montosa Ranch? Let's use up the land and all of the water to create another Sahuarita ( anyone see that ugly spread recently?). What Green Valley has is open space. When the mountains have been leveled, the water poisoned and the desert floor covered with stucco, there will be nothing to attract new old people. Arizona, you are in the proicess of digging your own grave. This is not the Midwest where water is plentiful and land forgiving. For the future of this state, wake up and smell the coffins.
