Another Arawana Update

Well, I'm getting closer to the first official step in making the Arawana Golf Course a reality when I appear before the Middletown Economic Development Commission on Sept. 14. I'm optimistic that my plan will be approved.

There is one new bump in the process. While meeting with the chief engineer of the Middletown Water and Sewer Department I learned an access road to the Kleen Energy power plant wells will run right through the fourth and sixth holes (click on the photo, red line indicates proposed road). I meet with people from Kleen Energy on the morning of the 14th in the office of the director of the city's planning and development department to see if we can do something about this problem.

    You know, its like that video game, Sim City. Here you have Kleen Energy and their road, popping up out of the middle of nowhere. Soon its going to be a bunch of nuclear power towers, office buildings, everything surrounding the golf course on land that wasn't used for anything for years and years and years and years.

    Why is it that when someone wants to build something as beautiful, natural and respective of nature as a golf course, then all of this stuff comes out of the wood work?!?!?!

    And you guys back east thought California was nuts.....

  2. Dear Doctor:

    First, you are nuts. Second, the power plant was there before my idea. Third, you are nuts.

    Dr. Pioppi,
    Yes, I am nuts. Fruit Kuchen to be precise. Could you please pass me those casabamelons over there, thanks......

    Go Arawana!
