Our Readers' Opinions

(Continued)

Andy rightly applauds the state Department of Transportation for deciding to stop spraying along Route 80. The issues at hand are not just public health, but also the long term toxic effects of chemical break-down products on aquatic flora and fauna. It’s time for the two golf courses around the lake seriously to consider banning herbicides and pesticides as well. If the organic Vineyard Golf Club on Martha’s Vineyard is good enough for the president of the United States to play on, an organic golf course in Cooperstown could be a success as well. No doubt maintaining the quality of a golf course without herbicides and pesticides would be a real challenge, but as the state Department of Transportation has recognized, it’s a challenge that’s becoming harder and harder to avoid.
