  • A couple weeks ago the police arrested Cameron Davis, who had seven outstanding warrants for over 100 mail and credit-card thefts. He spent one day in jail. Gary Harrington will spend several months in jail for dams he has on his property. He was told to remove them and he did comply.

    I am an ex-rancher, so I know something about water. I also know the Crowfoot area where the dams are located. As I understand it, the dams are not blocking any streams and are dry in the summer. When the winter rains hit the ground, the water runs off and ends in the ocean. If you catch the winter rain and hold it in a pond, the water (which would now be in the ocean) will slowly leach into the ground to help our groundwater all year.
    I understand the law is for everyone. Mr. Harrington needs to follow the law and should be punished for his crime. But a known criminal with seven outstanding warrants spent one day in jail while Mr. Harrington is expected to spend several months there. This is wrong. — Don Herzog, Eagle Point
