I would like to know why people like (Chris) Rainwater ("Fertilizer fears," Thursday's Clarion), who has lived in Homer all his life, do not support the extraction of natural gas from their back yard. I was born in Soldotna and raised in North Kenai. The industries have been at my back door all my life and I have benefited from them so have the people in Homer, but they seem to have the attitude "not in my back yard."
It goes like the old saying that they want their cake and to eat it, too.
I think it is time people in Homer start giving to the peninsula, instead of just taking. I am really tired of the whining.
