"The success of Everglades restoration"? Mr. Howard would be challenged to specify exactly (or even broadly) what that might be. This proud dissident is happy to observe that this issue has more public traction than I have ever witnessed. I hope it continues and I also suspect that Mr. Howard has a dog in this fight we have yet to identify.

It's interesting how you attack people who have an opposing view from you. You come across as if you hate everything from the Glades region.

Andrew Jones be careful not to get into another ad homing rant you and your superiors at Arthur ex would be embarrassed about. This individual is indebted to Sugar and his opinion reflects it. Very simple since a paid for opinion clearly contradicts the science

Rob Kanter: I have a B.S. & M.S. in Chemical Engineering and my Master's thesis was on biological oxygen demand in water. I have 4 patents, 32 years in 3M Health Care and was responsible for multiple $100 million dollar health care products. What kind of "engineer" are you to go against the UofFlorida, other non political institutions and scientists who all call for returning the flow of Lake O water through the Everglades and into Florida Bay?

Yes, we need to buy land South of Lake O in order to convey Lake O water through the Everglades and then into Florida Bay. Our river and estuaries require nothing short of this.

I hurts to keep reading about how people really feel that buying land South of Lake O is the answer! Those people have been thoroughly fooled by the political stunts!
