Re: “'First step to do what's right' for Jordan Lake

Horray for them. Three of the DBoCC seems to have realized that this whole thing is a travisty and perhaps the public outcry will be enough to stop it. It's not over yet though....

Re: “Orange County airport: Flying under the radar

Well Bob,

You seem to have hit the nail on the head. In emotionally charged issues like eminent domain and in the absence of facts that should have been discussed long before, people tend to invent their own. The university and legislature is completely responsible for this mess and it is getting worse because of their continued failures.

Frankly speaking, so far, the facts do seem to point to that in the cold light of day the airport idea just cannot be justified environmentally, economically or socially. AHEC alone is not enough to justify a new airport, and the phony report of jobs and economic benefits have been debunked. 21st century problems are not well solved by 20th century solutions.

I challenge the people behind this airport to come forward and explain the problem they are trying to solve and why an airport is the only solution they are considering. I think the truth is that the airport is a solution in search of a problem.
