What will you find to rant about once growth has slowed Ms. Ritchie? Oh I'm sure there will always be another target.

I wanted so badly to write that Lake and Sumter counties are going to loose this argument, but I can’t.

So, instead, I am going write that I hope and pray to God, Mother Nature, Buddha, Vishnu, and any other deity that I can think of, that they will loose this battle.

But, they probably won’t.

My main point: If Lake and Sumter counties want more water, then let them pay for it with a desalination plant.

My main hope: The wealthy and well educated residents and business owners living and working on lake and river front property from St. John’s County south through Marion Citrus counties will not let Lake and Sumter counties rape their rivers and lakes; thus, dropping the water levels and damaging their economies.

The new residents and policymakers in Lake and Sumter counties bring with them a sense of entitlement that rivals Tinsel Town! Someone needs to punch them in the mouth, and maybe they have just picked a fight with someone who can! Here’s hoping.

Peeking into the future a bit farther, desalinization of seawater will be a better way to go.
Why not face the facts now and plan for a future that will leave plenty of fresh water that won't be tainted by salt water intrusion by reducing the pressure on the aquifer?

It is difficult to imagine how our elected officials can just go on approving these developments.

I enjoyed your article. Perhaps you stirred some interest and citizens (other than builders) will start to care.
