Questions suggest a few answers

The article "Choice of land prompts questions about growth" (Aug. 16) does bring questions to mind. Perhaps the situation has been given more thought than has been publicized.

What civic-minded, economy-oriented group of politicians would want the gateway to Augusta surrounded by a water treatment facility?

Could the takeover of land owned by a prominent Augusta-area family involve political aspirations - keeping in mind the area around the airport is, for the most part, "industrial"?

Daniel Field could be converted to a major airport without too much effort. Never mind the cost; most of the land surrounding Daniel Field is owned by the city already. And remember, Delta's big jets can land and take off there without any renovation.

Oh, I almost forgot! The amount of traffic at Bush Field is at an all-time low at the present time. Wouldn't it make an ideal practice strip for the Navy?

How about that, Burke County?
