Quote from As I See It by Mary Schamehorn
If you haven't yet turned in your ballot on Bandon's Measure 6-148, I am urging you to vote yes and get your ballot into
City Hall before 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
For the life of me I am not sure why anyone would vote against this, or why the Committee to Keep the Lights on in
Bandon and CoosCountyWatchdog.com would spend the money to walk through Bandon neighborhoods and hang information on door knobs urging a no vote on the measure.
It seems to be more of a property rights issue than anything else, and that's sad. They also speak of "protecting your final authority," "preserving human activity" and "preserving our quality of life."
Frankly, I think the quality of everyone's life would be better if we didn't have the neighbor's or the City's lights shining into our
backyards and bedroom windows.
Please vote yes for Measure 6-148 while there is still time to get your ballot in.
55% of the people disagreed.....
The fight for Light is getting heated in Bandon. Please DO NOT forget to Vote NO on Measure 6-148 in the March 12, 2013 Election. The supporters of this law are getting desperate, which is demonstrated in their letters to the editor. Below is a link to the Bandon Western World and my fellow watchdogs should be really upset, because they want to leash us, as if they could. In addition, one writer claims that we all imagined the Bandon Marsh expansion planned by the USFWS. Yeah, the people of Coos County just went through a "Dallas" style Dream Sequence.....Rob T.
Leash The Watchdog---Not bloody likely!..........
