TONIGHT AT 7 ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WE'LL CONTINUE WITH THE PLUM CREEK DEVELOPMENT STORY IN THE THIRD INSTALLMENT. WE'LL MOVE TO A DISCUSSION OF THE UNINTENDED AND NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES THAT NEIGHBORS TO THE AMBITIOUS PROJECT WILL FACE AND HOW THEIR LIVES CAN LITERALLY BE TORN ABOUT. THE DISCUSSION YOU WILL HEAR IS A PART OF GEORGE SIBLEY'S EXCELLENT AUDIO PODCAST CREATED IN PART BY SUPPORT FROM THE SIERRA CLUB. AND I MUST ADMIT THAT THIS HUMBLE HOST IS INCLUDED AS ONE OF THE PARTICIPANTS SINCE i ALSO LIVE CLOSE BY THE WHERE THE ACTION WILL BE.
THE MAIN POINT BEING MADE IS THAT THE ENTIRE PROJECT IS OVERKILL, TRYING TO FORCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CITY IN LOW, OFTEN FLOODED LAND WITH NO INFRASTRUCTURE. AND SINCE PLUM CREEK HAS MADE IT CLEAR THAT THEY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO ACTUALLY DEVELOP IT THEMSELVES, THE LOCAL TAXPAYERS, INCLUDING THOSE OF US DIRECTLY IMPACTED, WILL PAY THE PRICE BOTH IN TAXES AND LOSS OF QUALITY OF LIFE. DOES THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT CARE? ONLY TIME WILL TELL AND THAT WILL COME IN NEXT WEEK'S MASSIVE PUBLIC HEARINGS.
WE HOPE YOU'LL TUNE IN FOR WHEREVER YOU LIVE, DEVELOPMENTS OF THIS TYPE ARE BEING PLANNED THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES. I GUESS PEOPLE WILL FINALLY WAKE UP WHEN THE TREES ARE GONE, THE SPRAWL HAS LEFT BEHIND BOARDED UP COMMUNITIES AND WE'LL WONDER WHAT HAPPENED. SO PAY ATTENTION, YOU MIGHT LEARN A THING OR TWO THAT YOU CAN DO AS WELL.
ALACHUA COUNTY, FL COMMISSIONERS WILL SOON DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT THEY WILL GRANT PLUM CREEK TIMBER APPROVAL TO BUILD A "CITY IN THE SWAMP" ON ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE LAND. THE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST HAS CONDUCTED A MASTERFUL CAMPAIGN TO PIT GROUPS OF PEOPLE IN THE COUNTY AGAINST ONE ANOTHER BY PROMISING THE "WORLD" TO SOME AND IGNORING THE CONCERNS OF OTHERS.
THIS SHOW WILL BEGIN THE AIRING BY NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE OF FIVE INSTALLMENTS WHICH WILL PROVIDE, AS THE GREAT PAUL HARVEY SAID, THE REST OF THE STORY. THEY WERE PRODUCED FOR THE SIERRA CLUB BY GEORGE SIBLEY, A TALENTED PRESENTER WHO INTERVIEWED A NUMBER OF CITIZENS WHO HAVE HUGE CONCERNS ABOUT THIS ACTION. NOW I DON'T AGREE WITH MANY OF THE ACTIONS THAT THE SIERRA CLUB SUPPORTS, ON THIS ONE THEY ARE "SPOT ON". THIS BROADCASTER IS PLEASED TO HAVE BEEN ASKED TO PARTICIPATE AND WAS INCLUDED IN THE INTERVIEWS.
JOIN US FOR THE FIRST OF FIVE PRESENTATIONS AS WE DISCUSS HOW FLORIDA COULD BE LOSING ITS VERY LIFEBLOOD, THE PRECIOUS AQUIFER AND THE UNQUE SURROUNDINGS THAT MADE FLORIDA SUCH A SPECIAL PLACE. OH, DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH IS NATURAL AND CAN BE VERY GOOD, BUT UNBRIDLED GROWTH WITHOUT CONCERN FOR THE CONSEQUENCES IS VERY DANGEROUS, BOTH HERE IN FLORIDA AND THROUGHOUT THIS GREAT LAND. THE SHOW WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND FOLLOWING THE LIVE BROADCAST ON WEDNESDAY. WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.
NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL PRESENT PART TWO OF PLUM CREEK TIMBER: THE REST OF THE STORY, FEATURING GEORGE SIBLEY'S PRODUCTION FOR THE SIERRA CLUB OF PLUM PUDDING ON FRIDAY. IT WILL CONTINUE THE EFFORTS TO QUESTION A MAJOR DEVELOPMENT BY A LARGE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST IN FRAGILE, WET AND RURAL NORTH FLORIDA. CITIZENS BECOME AWARE OF THE ISSUE AND BEGIN TO ORGANIZE TO IMPACT WHAT IS UNFOLDING. WILL THEY BE SUCCESSFUL IN ULTIMATELY ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING POSITIVE FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS OF THE AREA OR WILL THEIR EFFORTS BE TO NO AVAIL? WELL, WE'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT TO SEE HOW IT ENDS UP.
THIS IS NOT AN INDICTMENT OF DEVELOPMENT, FOR WE ALL KNOW THAT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND JOB GROWTH IS NECESSARY FOR AN ECONOMY TO FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY, BUT THERE IS A CATCH WITH THE APPROACH IF IT ISN'T TEMPERED TO A DEGREE. WHEN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICALLY DESTROYS THE NEARBY NEIGHBORS, IT'S NOT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AT ALL. IT'S ECONOMIC DISASTER.
THE SHOW WILL RUN AT 6 PM (ET) FRIDAY AND THEN BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND 24/7. WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.

This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show airs from western Montana. We’re at Triple Creek Ranch, just outside of Darby, about 20 miles from the Idaho border. Elk, horses, deer, moose, bald eagles, hawks, turkey, and ospreys make their home within Triple Creek Ranch’s 26,700 acres.
How’s this for rugged? It’s right around here that the Lewis and Clark expedition was finally successful in crossing the Bitterroot Mountains, part of the larger Rocky Mountain range. The pioneers battled frostbite, malnutrition, and dehydration while crossing this particularly unforgiving 200-mile stretch of mountain terrain during their 11 harrowing days on the Lolo Trail. But it’s now where you’ll find the ulra-luxe Triple Creek Ranch.
You’ll find all of this and more when Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from the Triple Creek Ranch.
