Reporters Afraid To Get Their Feet Wet !
It seems our esteemed colleagues from the two major presses of our area were asleep during the recent BoS meeting. Instead of reporting on blatant infringements to sunshine laws and the incredulous ramifications of the proposed developments, our writers decided the demise of an abused historic structure and the completion of a township building would be all the sustenance area readers would be able to digest. A new school system which could have cost of over 100MILLION DOLLARS to area residents (not Just those residing in Forks) will be necessary. Forks is already #1 in area growth with a growth rate nearly TWICE that of any other in Lehigh and Northampton counties. It seems that area developers find it a hardship to abide by our current zoning laws. They have quite graciously decided that they will rewrite our laws to fit their agendas. Further, they are willing to do this at no cost. OOOPPS, they forgot to mention that they stand to profit MANY MANY MANY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS and leave residents holding the cost of new schools, new roads and numerous other infrastructure needs. In the South, they used to call this type of scoundrel a CARPETBAGGER. To further clarify,Webster's defines a CARPETBAGGER as a nonresident who MEDDLES in politics. In the South, they used to run these CARPETBAGGERS OUT of town(ship). In Forks ???
