Letter: I’m never right if I yell too loudly
Nobody likes to be judged without impartiality. Wednesday’s article, “Silt neighbors irked by planned pot site,” explores the ideas that the neighbors in Antler Orchard have about a cannabis cultivation facility. It is a low-profile business. It is not ground zero. It is safe and regulated. It is High Q, for high quality, in every sense of the word with regards to the business and the ethic of the owners.
As a property owner, I would always prefer open space next door. If faced with development, I would prefer an operation that was green, solar, nontoxic and low impact rather than the potential for an eyesore.
If I had real concerns I would do my homework; ask questions. I would go meet the potential neighbor. I would do a lot of listening, less talking and refrain from discussing what someone else said to whom. I am rarely right when I lose sight of what could be worse. I am never right if I have to yell too loudly.
I would consider the amount of inconvenience the project presented balanced with what the benefits would be. I would form an opinion based on fair and unbiased information. I would know my subject matter before I chose for or against. I would own my subject matter before I projected it on another. But I am of the mindset that one should not judge a situation by what others say and how many others say it.
I work at High Q and I have owned property in this valley for over 20 years. The only way for you to know what High Q is up to is to come in and ask questions. The only way to feel less uneasy with this topic is to meet us and check our credibility. Look at the plan and the site. The only way to know if you might have the best neighbors or the worst is to shake a hand and introduce yourself and ask about the project. You will be welcomed by Renee, Clint and the staff at High Q.
