Letter to the Editor: Airport problems
I would like to comment on the Julius Owens-Airport Authority deal.
Two things happened. Greed on Julius Owens' part and stupidity on the Airport Authority's part.
Mr. Owens claimed the land meant so much to him. If that were true, would would have been more than willing to let them cut a tree or two so he could have kept the land. I also think the $12,000 for that sounds inflated.
Everyone in our county should be outraged over this deal.
As for the Airport Authority, every citizen in our state should be outraged.
There are many more worthy things that money could have been used for. Instead, it was flushed down the toilet.
I hope Mr. Owens and the Airport Authority can look at themselves in the mirror at the end of the day and feel they did the right thing because I don't think anyone else feels that way.
