New jobs or healthy river

Submitted 06/02/2009 (Opinion)
The Jacksonville Port Authority is attempting to kill another great Florida river, the St. Johns. Dredging a natural river went out of favor in the 1970s after the US Army Corps of Engineers dredged the Kissimmee and the Caloosahatchee, and many other Florida rivers. Our generation and future generations is paying the price to "restore" those rivers, as best possible, and it is bankrupting us. It is not about Jacksonville jobs, there are plenty; it is about the quality of the St. Johns.
