Rockbridge Can Be Its Own Ark

Sept. 9, 2019 Editor, The News-Gazette:

I saw a sign on Main Street the other day at a church that said “Plan ahead, Noah didn’t build the ark in the rain.” After some thought, I came to the idea that Rockbridge County with its abundant fresh water, rural landscape and low population is a perfect “ark,” in that is a safe haven. Or, rather it could be an excellent example of one, if we take care of our resources. That would be stopping, as much as possible, soil erosion, building new healthy soil and cleaning up our waterways. Only you can prevent the loss of these resources.
