Re: “Drakes Bay Oyster Company Turns to Koch Brothers-Linked Group

it's ironic that persons who post here are subjected to "terms of use" which include the following: "You agree not to submit any content that *** is defamatory, *** misleading, or contains factual assertions that could be defamatory *** or includes personal attacks." i guess these terms don't apply to the author himself for his smear of the lunnys. it's one thing to disagree with having an oyster farm in a national park, an oyster farm that has been in existence since the 1930s before pt reyes ever became a national park, but quite another to smear a fine family that is engaged in sustainable agriculture and that is providing healthy food for thousands of eager citizens. the author can do better and should hold himself to higher standards of professional journalism.

Re: “Drakes Bay Oyster Company Turns to Koch Brothers-Linked Group

here are some things to consider: when pt reyes national seashore was created, were agricultural uses exempted from the "wilderness" designation? did the author of the legislation that created pt reyes national seashore intend that oyster operations remain in perpetuity? when california regulated the area before it became part of the national park system, did it retain the rights to permit and license oyster farming in the estero? when the lunnys bought the operation in 2004, was the prior owner not as dedicated to sustainable agriculture or environmental compliance as the lunnys? when the natl park service attempted to issue a draft use permit to the lunnys, did the natl park service attempt to usurp the authority of california when it came to regulating oyster operations? are the lunny environmental stewards of the estero? the answers are all yes.

M. O'Brian, read the complaint that was filed in this matter. the complaint alleges a 40% share so it's up to you to prove the complaint wrong. Bill Hays, the lunnys did not contact cause of action, he was approached by them. are you suggesting mr. hays that the lunnys should turn down free legal advice? or are you saying that the extremist right-wing nut jobs you refer to should prevail over a local, sustainable aquaculture small family business? and mr. o'brian, when you suggest the park service's decision had "nothing to do with the lease" you betray your ignorance because, in fact, the nps' decision had everything to do with the lease, i.e., the lease was not renewed. people who are ignorant of the facts like mr. o'brian should not be allowed to comment on this site.
