  • The recent jailing of the water trapper was absolutely justified. He scoffed at the law for 11 years and is now playing legal games with the "ownership" of his property, even though he still lives there.

  • The recent jailing of the water trapper was absolutely justified. He scoffed at the law for 11 years and is now playing legal games with the "ownership" of his property, even though he still lives there.
    Some argue that he has every right to trap the water that runs across his property. I disagree. Water is a natural resource like deer. Does Mr. Harrington think he owns every deer that wanders on his property? I hope not, because he does not. No one in the state believes that all wildlife that crosses their property should become the possession of the property owner.
    We are required by law to share natural resources, just like logic and decency would dictate. Sorry, Mr. Harrington's dams may hold water, but his argument does not. — Darryl Edington, Medford
