Letters to the Editor

All water recycles naturally

To the editor:

Re: Ted Bajer letter to the editor: Watering Lawn Expensive, But Water is Not Lost, Sept. 20 Capital News.

Hooray for a letter from someone who understands the true cycles of nature.

Water does not disappear from the world, it merely recycles itself without any help from mankind.

It may be inconvenient for man when there is too much or too little in any one place. But that is of no interest to Mother Nature who carries on managing her affairs despite the protestations of governments and experts.

Water your lawn and enjoy your garden. Grow some food and some flowers and keep this valley beautiful.
