LEE COUNTY, FL - Former Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah says he believes efforts to stop water releases from Lake Okechobee from affecting our area will not work unless a plan to divert and guide the water directly to the Everglades is devised. He believes state politicians missed an opportunity last week to purchase 50 thousand acres of property owned by two major sugar companies. Judah says the land would have created a corridor for Lake O overflow to drain southward to the Everglades without entering our waterways. Judah also says some politicians are pointing fingers of blame instead of helping to solve the problem.
