GOLIAD – Joe Kozielski, vice president of the Goliad County Groundwater Conservation District, expressed his disapproval of the Advance-Guard’s publishing information from the GCGCD board’s Jan. 7 meeting.

During the GCGCD’s Jan. 21 meeting, Kozielski addressed the Advance-Guard’s editor during open session, claiming a story that appeared in the Jan. 23 edition on how the GCGCD was going to notify residents of high arsenic levels in drinking water in the southern part of the county could prevent him from selling property in the area.

“I can’t sell my property now that you put it in the paper,” Kozielski said in reference to the story.

Sooo many questions...1) Are these people in paid positions? 2) Are they elected positions? 3)When and how can they be replaced? 4) They knew for 6 months the levels are too high? 5) What is the purpose of testing a well if the unsatisfactory results are not acted upon? 6) Is the meaning of "Public Knowledge" and "Open Record" a confusing concept for them?

Good for you Advance Guard reporter !!!! Actual news reporting !!! KUDOS !!!

And that's what newspapers are supposed to do ... tell the public things that the public needs to know. Good for you.
