Jake Fuller of the Pensacola News Journal hits the nail on the head with his cartoon today Aug. 9, 2020 when he says the impaired river, rather than getting help from the state and its citizens, gets drawn down even more so a private company can make money.
This is inexcusable, and if the permit is given by the district, we will have a new road to follow.
Thanks Jake for permission to republish and thanks to the Sun for running it.
