Ah, The Bee on Oct. 1. So much to write about, so little space.
From the bag ban, what a scam. Predicated on a lie (single-use bag) to a windfall for the grocers. “Just” 10 cents a paper bag; it will be 25 cents after Jan. 1! (Whatever happened to save-a-tree)?
On to “Symbiosis” at Woodward Reservoir. The supervisors ignoring the neighbors and homeowners. Not a word about possible damage to fences, outbuildings, crops and livestock. All of this so some people can “immerse themselves ... in social interaction” while creating a “transformational experience.”
