Letter to the editor logo 2021

Remember “I Love Lucy?” when Lucy was questioned by husband, Desi, about the many projects she got involved with?

“…’splain to me, Lucy. ...”

Desi always got a comical, ridiculous answer.

I’m asking the same of our local government: “…’splain to me. ...” why those of us who live far and away from water now must pay $58-plus a year to clear up polluted waters caused mostly by fertilizer runoff. These are the same waters that our water-area residents have put on their property to keep it green and beautiful and to keep up with their neighbors.

But the rest of us — maybe not wanting to be near water — must help pay.

“…’splain it to me ...” county government.
