Why I gave to save the farms

As a committed lover of this wonderful island, I have been aware of the challenge we face in preserving the absolutely marvelous vistas at the center of it all. My wife, Rita, and I have tried to respond to the case made by Quentin Anthony and Arthur Milot. Quentin urged me to share our thoughts with others who might be debating their response. In that regard, I ask each and every reader of the Jamestown Press to consider what would be lost by all of us and our children and grandchildren if the beautiful farms which greet us every time we approach and leave this cherished place were lost to development with dozens of buildings replacing them. Lets all do everything we can to save these treasures.
