Biggest hypocrisy

By From page A5 | April 22, 2013

EDITOR:

Nevada Water District expects $1 million in gold from the Meadow Vista (Combie reservoir) mercury removal project. This is the bonus that the Nevada Irrigation District will be getting from dredging for mercury. That is the biggest hypocrisy that I have ever seen. Kick the dredgers off the river so that they can recover the gold at a cost of $6 million that the taxpayer is providing while a lot of dredging families are now on welfare and food stamps. It sure doesn’t make any sense unless you are the one that is going to benefit from it.
