What we do have in common is a great love for Deep Creek and concern about its future.

We realize that the human impact on the area in the way of trash left is of concern. On that note: I hope the one upmanship of "who does the most" for the springs will result in a contest that will leave DCHS spotless!

I am concerned about the lack of sanitary facilities both at the Bowen Ranch and at Deep Creek. This human waste creates a health hazard that could jeopardize our right to use the area. Some members of the public do not properly dispose of their human waste which pollutes (spell check again) the ground and the creek.

The increased human use and resulting problems is of concern. We realize that not all human beings are caring people and some have a violent nature.

These are the issues that we can agree on.

How we disagree is on how to address these concerns.

There appears to be two points of view:

People who realize that these are "public" lands and therefore the "public" has a right to "reasonable" access.

The consensus (had to spell check again) is that the responsible agencies should be providing some law enforcement presence to discourage the criminal element.

The other side believes that the majority of the public should access through the Bowen Ranch so that Mike Castro can conduct his screening process.

The consensus on this side is that Mike Castro provides vigilante law enforcement to discourage the criminal element.

Katrina believes that violence results in more violence and lawlessness attracts more lawlessness. That this area is known in the community to be a "lawless area". Therefore, criminals may think they could get away with crimes out there because there is no law enforcement presence.

Katrina alleges that actually Mike Castro has committed violent crimes against the public and has escaped justice (so far).

Anyway, at least we do have a common ground in the love for deep creek. Hopefully that common ground will bring us together in the best interest of deep creek.
