What a wonderful picture on the front page of your May 4 issue...a pair of mallard ducks enjoying the open water. Soon we won't have the pleasure of that scene thanks to SVID.
They are going to put in a pipe and cover over the open canal where pairs of ducks will be busy brooding a clutch of eggs. We enjoy watching them raise their young.
We border the city limits in Grandview. With Rockyford Road at the back of our property, we and all our neighbors love the ducks that roam and feed all around us. It is a terrible shame that SVID has the right to destroy this beautiful scene from us.
