Misplaced factory

EDITOR: I know there is a blurred line between religion and big business and money.
However, Tuesday's vote by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors approving the
expansion of a printing press in a plant half the size of a football eld above Salt Point
State Park is sacrilegious (Buddhist printer gets OK to expand, Wednesday).

Supervisor Efren Carrillo turned his back on his constituents who live peacefully along
the hills and ocean views above Highway 1. Is he keeping a low and harmful political
prole? I think so. Thank you, Supervisors Shirlee Zane and Susan Gorin for supporting
our neighbors in coastal Sonoma County.

The huge truck traveling along narrow country roads every day will cause noise and
damage.

Ratna Ling's retreat is one thing, but the printing press needs to return to Berkeley
where it belongs. I believe this 3-2 vote was a horrible mistake by the Board of Supervi-
sors and an affront to our general plan.

TERRY LOUCKS
