Letters: Not happy with issues in Shirley

All the years of apprenticeship in Shirley have finally come to fruition.

All the years of apprenticeship in Shirley have finally come to fruition.

The rich people and the Americans have gotten all their ducks in a row.

Now the taxes will go up as things are gotten that were wanted; taxes that are paid by the poor – non-Americans in Shirley; again – the poor subsidizing the rich.

Our muddy, over-chlorinated water is now silver gold; its price going from $400 per year to $1,200 per year in five short years. I feel privileged, “which is to say” – I’m disconnecting the water.

The fire hall volunteers want two fire halls for Shirley, one for Shirley, and the other, so Jordan River doesn’t get one – (a sort of tree hugger, CRD, dilemma, paradox, kind of situation, I guess).

I’m overwhelmed by the talented, competent, intelligent, and self-effacing attitude in Shirley – Gem of the Region.
