EDITOR: Paul Hobbs (“Vineyard conversion cleanup begins,” Monday) was quoted as saying, “Some people who oppose this, there’s nothing that we can do to make them happy.” I’m sure that he can find someone he cannot please, but I’m certain that many folks would be pleased if he kept his word and didn’t break the few laws that are protecting the environment near his land. The majority of parents and neighbors who I have spoken with would be happy if he used organic farming practices. It appears that it’s not that there is nothing he can do to make people happy. It’s that he’d rather pay small fines than make the larger financial investment in organic farming.
