Last letter I ran out of time,
and like to keep them short. But I do not think this sale is
going to do us any good. Is this sale including the pulp mill
dam? Just how much money would it take to build it new? I bet
more than 9 million. what a great asset we have there. Is this
sale going to cut us out from using it? What is the plan? Just
to get this on the tax roles? If the businesses want this
water let them buy it from us by the gallon. If we let the
dam go we will be buying water from the business for are sludge
plant and all other businesses that may be formed there.
Look what happened on the south end to get water. You give your
assets away - you lose. There are the things that make money
for your government that should be utilized to its fullest. I
alone have thought how many things that could be done with this
I like what Harry Martin has done for are schools but if the only way we can keep him here is to give him 1% raise every year - be happy with what your're getting or be gone.
Why is our school budget so high? Because we keep giving raises. There has to be a line drawn when you decide to become a teacher. You know what they get paid. It's your choice. You don't have to go on strike at the mercy of the kids. Well now... I slipped over the edge and the teachers are going to hate me.
I better get back to the mill.
O.K. I made my points and lost track better just close on this
note... Don Hoff I thought you were just using your Indian name.
Consolidating is good we only have to fight one government instead
of two. If you were loyal to your people you would be here teaching
your history to your people. You seem to know a lot. Thought
you were coming back this summer?
