As they say, everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, let’s not confuse opinions with facts. Bob Rosborough’s Feb. 20 opinion piece on the desirability of a golf course on the Eastern Shore is long on opinion and short on facts.
Interesting that Mr. Rosborough thinks that just because somebody lives here on the Eastern Shore, they are an expert on what is good for this environment! Furthermore, he contends that a golf course is going to be a panacea for local economic problems without presenting any evidence whatsoever. Meanwhile, we are being sold down the river to an American billionaire in a secret backroom deal. But hey, no problem!
There are local residents who are concerned about preserving our environment and who are interested in the science. As a result, those citizens are advocating to save Owls Head from a deal that never should have been on offer in the first place.
As a local resident, it’s heartbreaking to see the community torn apart by this “get rich quick” scheme that completely ignores the reality of the location.
This is not another Cabot Links. Go ahead and promise people jobs … Pull the wool over their eyes while public coastal land gets sold out from underneath us for a song.
