Supervisor Dawn Rowe has
marginalized Newberry's residents. Now she wants glory!
This year, I did not attend the 3rd of July celebration at
Newberry's park. I was nearby, available, but I was too disgusted at the event's
promoters to attend. They are spoilers for many Newberrians.
I side with the Newberry residents living in the northwest
portion of the community. They have taken the brunt of Clearway Energy's
destructive spread of carcinogenic silica dust and sand that has negatively
impacted their health, their children, pets, livestock, property values,
When the value of their health is considered, these people
have collectively lost millions of dollars. Those who could, have wisely moved
elsewhere. But, they have suffered a financial loss.
One would think that the Newberry CSD, the local Chamber,
and even the Senior/Family Center representing respiratory-sensitive seniors,
would have empathy. That they would be up in arms against the predator Clearway
Energy. Instead, the directors of these organizations have embraced
Why? It is simple. For the root of satanic evil... M O N E Y.
Clearway Energy is purchasing cheap respectability.
The Newberry Springs Chamber of Commerce has turned a deaf
ear to the injuries and suffering caused by Clearway Energy upon the residents
of Newberry Springs.
The Chamber has allowed Clearway funds to flow into the
Chamber's treasury. This has greased the way for the Chamber's membership
to vote Clearway into the Chamber as a respected member.
This is an abomination. Clearway Energy has demonstrated that
it doesn't give a damn about Newberry Springs, but for a few well-placed dollars,
it can now substantiate to the federal and state project overseers, that their
project is a good neighbor and welcomed in the Newberry.
Likewise, for a few dollars, our stupid Newberry CSD
Board of Directors has accepted money for a portable park scoreboard. For
the crown, the scoreboard proudly thanks: CLEARWAY.
The small amount of money that CSD director Mike Matson
acquired by belly crawling to Clearway could have been acquired through grants
that would have maintained some degree of CSD dignity.
With all of the added airborne carcinogenic silica dust from
Clearway, the subjection of our children to rigorous playground activities at
the CSD park may be hazardous.
The Senior/Family Center, another Newberry institution, has
shamelessly taken money from Clearway for glaring exterior lighting.
While some single residents will likely have tens
of thousands of dollars in future medical bills from Clearway's carcinogenic
dust, Clearway for only a fraction of that has been given the regulatory optics
of being a responsible corporation.
These Newberry organizations question why they lack followers.
Perhaps it is because they don't represent the interests of many in the community.
