Letter: Cargill water could bring golf to Bayfront Park

I have listened to the ranting and raving of the radical element of environmentalists. I have listened to the proponents of the project. I have walked my Pomeranian hundreds of times around Pacific Shores. I have contributed hundreds of yards of waste to the Marsh Road dumpsite, now known as Bedwell Bayfront Park. It is ironic that Save the Bay chose this site for their press conference.

From what I know now, I am 100 percent behind the Cargill project.

Water is not an issue. There are copious amounts of recycled water available to the north and south of the project. Enough, in fact, to turn Bayfront Park into a year-round Emerald Isle with an environmentally friendly golf course. Some of the economic "green" that would produce wouldn't hurt our local economy. With a scarcity of golf courses, golfers now travel out of the area. And, using the trapped methane for on-site power generation is another positive.

Cargill, do you hear me?
