It is Still Wrong

The recent transmogrification of the STRP with yet another finance scheme is still wrong.

It is perfect politics though: appease the greedy as a means to drown out the principled.

To make something that is immensely inequitable just a bit more equitable does not make it … equitable. True progress is eliminating this whole scam altogether.

As Malcolm X stated: “You don't stick a knife in a man's back nine inches and then pull it out six inches and say you are making progress”. Exactly.

Give this author the STRP free of charge and throw in forest of royal palms where the septic tank is to be removed, and I am still against it. Why?

Because what is remiss in all of these versions of the STRP is how seriously our environment will be impacted with the sewage treatment plant. Simply look at the daily spills across this country from these treatment plants and you have the vision of what is coming soon to Marco Island.

And when the treatment plant starts failing, and there is overflow being funneled into the ocean, and when power failures stop the pumping stations, and when the deep injection wells fuel the red tide bloom into a pandemic of upper respiratory ailments in the old and the young, you’ll hear how there is a new plan for the sewage treatment plant to reduce the problems – as opposed to eliminating them altogether. It will be déjà vu and that whole nine inches in six inches out bureaucratic mentality.

The STRP is wrong. It is wrong for the environment. It is inappropriately financed. It is improperly implemented. It is ill begotten.

It is still wrong.

  • The article " it is still wrong" is right on!

    Very few people are aware of the "clean " bubbles floating down the Marco river at Each outgoing tide. The Barnacles on our dock posts are practically black . Fifteen years ago they were white. Example--Travel south of Jolley bridge and observe the barnacles on their docks--I wonder if they're black too. I doubt it-I don't think the outlets from the sewage system goes that far south.
    More than triple that in several years and we will begin having the same headlines as Naples.
    " Something is floating near the beaches and we have to close it for the public's health. It might be animal droppings etc. etc."
    Beware to those on our beautiful gulf beach and those owning the condos and hotels. The headlines from Marco will then be--"Something is floating out there and we must close the beaches to protect the public." It might be some animal contamination.
    What will this do to their investments and hotel portfolios?
