The old heave-ho

I read with great interest Valerie Sklarevsky’s Letter to the Editor in which she claimed to have filled her “40-gallon bucket with nutrient rich soil and water” and then poured it on the model. It is apparent that either Ms. Sklarevsky is one of the strongest women to have ever existed (water weighs approximately 9 pounds per gallon for a total claimed lift and toss of around 360 pounds) or she has a very poor grasp of basic units of measurement. I believe that the latter is true which is why I’m unwilling to take her word for anything that might involve basic math or the ability to discern what is a fact.

Her “protest” was a transparent attempt to keep the citizens of this community from having the opportunity to educate themselves about the plans for the Civic Center area so that they could be discussed rationally.
