On my walk last week I froze in astonishment at the sight of completely cleared acres of sandy ground where a few days before there had been completely undisturbed woods.
Anyway, they're still clearing and I guess the pipe dream of building a huge regional sports complex for youth tournaments and I don't even know what all is going ahead. Adventure Land and a mini golf course and a zip line! And hotels!
I wasn't too worried when I first heard about it because it took almost two years to get a mile of proposed sidewalk put in.
But, I guess it's happening. There's a meeting at the old Woman's Club at one this afternoon about it and so I am attending. This is definitely going to affect us. How and how much, I am not sure but it will. I am torn in my feelings because although I would love for all the woods to stay just as they are, Jefferson County needs revenue badly. And jobs. Even minimum wage jobs. I think the women's prison near Monticello may be the biggest employer in the county as it stands now which is pretty dire.
So. I've had my walk and it's time to get cleaned up to walk down to the meeting.
I'll let you know what's happening in Lloyd as soon as I find out.
