Pillaging a Riverbank

12 April 2010 at 11:06:55 PM

Over a week ago, I dropped by to visit a friend who lives close to the square in Glen Rose, on the banks of the Paluxy. The sound of a bulldozer across the river, ripping out trees and everything else, permeated the reality of that day. It sounded to me like the crushing of bones, the killing of life, and of course, it is. Precious and rare habitat is now just a memory because some ignorant human wants to change it and has no thought of anything other than his or her own stupid, limited idea of the world. Tonight, over a week later, my friend says the pillaging is still going on.  So we all say, "Well, that's too bad, but there's nothing we can do about it." I say that we are the only ones who can.

Wow, this person sounds like the twin brother to Larry Parham, the owner of the land on Chalk Mtn that is being torn apart.

I think I'll go down and take some photos today or tomorrow of the Paluxy. I haven't actually looked at it since the last time hub and I walked down there, probably last September. Wondering, are they now bulldozing the entire Paluxy, say, all the way up to Hwy 67 on the west side of Barnard? Or planning to? For some reason I thought that the activity was going on east of 144. Yes?

I assumed this activity was taking place on a private, residential property. I really don't know any details.

I did learn one detail tonight: the nest belonging to a pair of red-tailed hawks appears to have been destroyed.
