Not sure who this is speaking however it sounds like your mind is made up that this project willRead Morenot work. I am sorry to hear this. I had an idea of which I thought would be a good one. I wanted to help bring the community together to come up with a positive solution. As far as being exposed to real agriculture you might want to get to know me a bit more to find out that if I had more time I would be home growing my own vegetables and realize that the growing season is not year round:)

When did the zoning in that area change from residential to commercial?

Very good point!

FIVE years in the works behind the scenes? Maybe someone, such as the Selectman, could have takenRead MoreF IVE minutes to inform the neighbors that a commercial food processing plant would be built next to their homes.

In the City it's called a factory. In East Haddam it's called an Agricultural Barn which happens to Read Morehouse a commercial food processing plant. The cartoon bubble reads ... "Shhh they will never ever figure it out".

Debbie and Lynne posted comments about livestock losses and then deleted them. Hopefully thatRead Moremeans that they did a little reading, got some education and realized that there are no kookars around here.

This is the 3rd time now that I have tried to send a 3rd reply to the above without success. IRead Morehave not deliberately deleted anything. Anyway, what I want to say is that I am grateful to hear that the Balleks and Pachs have not suffered any loss of their cattle. Wild cats such as the cougar have the forests as their natural habit, where they can lurk around and sneak up on their prey. East Haddam woodland is filled with sufficient food (such as foxes, coyotes, wild turkeys, and especially deer) for a cougar to kill. There would no be no reason for them to risk exposure out in a wide open pasture when there are plenty of food sources nearby. It is indeed unfortunate that nobody has managed to take a photo. Somehow, though, I do not think that would be sufficient for a naysayer. If the photo was of poor quality...too shady, too blurry, whatever...then, the retort would be that it was not clear enough to be proof. If the photo was absolutely great, I wouldn't be surprised to hear a naysayer reply that it was a hoax and probably gotten off the internet! I find it unbelievable that there are people in the world that still insist that the Halocaust never existed despite the thousands of grim photos and testimonies of survivors and the soldiers who freed them. Yes, photos would be wonderful but don't expect that they solve anything. Enough said. This is my final comment. Lynne M.

"Halocaust?" Very sad. Oldest trick in the book. If you question me you are the moralRead Moree quivalent of a holocaust denier. But even Al Gore can spell holocaust. Mountain lions were hunted to extinction in the east (outside Florida) for the same reason wolves were. They found it a lot easier to kill livestock species imported from Europe than wild animals that could run away very fast with no fence to stop them. Cougar kills are part of life for ranchers where there are still breeding populations of cougars, and a non-existent problem in East Haddam. Believe what you want to believe, kookar-kook. I'll wait for proof.
