true balance

Kelly (strike a balance) it is understandable that you are concerned for the future of your job just as many others are. However, the truth is sugar and pine companies have been subsidized for over 100 years and have never been fully stand alone. What are you suggesting we balance, business as usual against dwindling resources? HC&S, A&B, ML&P could be growing far less water demanding crops using integrated agroforestry systems that produce multiple layers of food and value-added products but they choose not to and haven't ever taken that challenge seriously (a few acres of coffee or organics doesn't count). If they did, you'd still get to keep your job, we'd be growing more foods for local consumption, and there would be more water for the streams; something essential for nearshore fisheries. You like eat fish, yeah? That's real balance.

go for small farms and agriculture to feed our population. We don't need sutgar or pine hon.
