So my encouragement to you is to do some research, check out what's happening with MID and the current issue. Check out this and other articles in the Bee, attend a public meeting of the issue (if there will be any more - I suspect there will) and weigh in on the issue. Water is our valley's most valuable resource. It will matter in the future more than we know. We owe it to our community and our children and grandchildren to GET INFORMED.
As a visiting editor for the Modesto Bee this quarter, I hope to beef up my knowledge on this crucial subject, including hearing from the folks at MID, and write some more on this issue. I welcome your input.
