Any of you wondering about how nice it will be with the dam down and no more Mirror Pond, take a look at Bend’s new Mirage Pond.

What a travesty to waste taxpayers’ money with studies and meetings with secret agendas. Dredge it!

I was in a hunting club for 25 years where we occasionally dredged the river on our property. So what? Spend the money and do it. The way this city, county and state spends money, this would be chump change. Maybe you want more nesting grounds for the geese, campgrounds for vagrants and breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Let your voice be heard.
