Why Are These Turtles Dying?

This is the second turtle I’ve found dead just up a hill from a drainage pond located on the south side of a parking lot at the intersection of Route 57 & 9 in the Little River Area of S.C. — less than 500 yards away from a cell phone tower.

Yet seaside communities will go to great trouble to protect turtle nests with fencing, cages, and no artificial lights.

Consider the danger of mast antennas to  not only amphibious life but man as well.

The antennas must come down so the turtles can live and man can be free of radiological disturbances that are causing confusion, violence, and deaths.

These turtles were looking for higher ground, a place to sun and dry from the recent hard rains — and found death.

There were no chemicals present on the guttering and no bodily injury visible.


No Bi-lo Milk, Route 9 turns?, Litter, Plane’s spray

Do not buy Bi-lo milk! It has growth hormones in it, which in my case, made my throat sore after I drank it. And the ice cream also had a terrible taste to it, which is probably from the same milk.

Route 9

Dangerous turns! I guess it was the state who reformed the the intersections at several locations, like Log Cabin Road and others, so that a person now is driving against oncoming traffic when needing to make a turn! Doesn’t make a bit of sense: delays travel, dangerous u-turn needed, and unneeded costs.


Horry county has so much garbage along its roads! Muck of it has fallen out of trailers that were on the way to the recycle centers. The solution: have people burn their garbage at home.

Plane spraying poisons in the county somehow get exempt from low altitude flying requirements, in this case, a pilot flew underneath the power lines off Route 45 last year spraying the fields. That’s right, underneath the power lines! County says it’s a FAA problem. But it won’t be if the pilot crashes on ground.

Horry Electric Cooperative Magazine

Horry Electric Cooperative would make you think that its resistant electricity is the greatest energy in the world with a monthly magazine that depicts all the positives.

But they don’t tell you all the negatives: the radio frequencies emanating through the smart meters and causing confusion and fear to people, people getting sick from strong electromagnetic fields around their homes, or dirty electricity finding its way through uninsulated ground wires or even copper water pipes!

So I canceled their unwanted magazine they mail every month.

Horry Electric Coop. doesn’t care about the consumer getting sick from forced smart meter installation, overhead transmission lines, radio frequency antenna and substations next to roadways.

If they did, there would be news articles on how to be healthy around these dangerous emanations, and they would allow the customer to get private service meters.

And just how has Horry Electric Coop. shielded its service lines from wireless interference for neurological health?

There has been no news of it, and as usual, the private citizen suffers physically and emotionally.

No, let’s keep it quiet. We make money doing this, and the public would be in a uproar if they knew!

Fortunately, God’s knows the truth.


Golf Course Pollution in the Intra-Coastal Waterway?

There was a lot of talk the other day about how the spot (fish) haven’t come inshore for recreational fishing. Some of the reasons were that the ocean temperature isn’t right, there aren’t many spot left to begin with, and last, the water is too dirty.

Which makes a lot of sense to me considering the big brown blobs I’ve seen floating down the incoming tide on a high mission to find land and the marsh for cleansing.

But no one never mentions the amount of pesticides flowing off the fairways from golf courses into the local tributaries and the Intra-coastal Waterway.

This may be a crucible subject here for the economy but the people’s health has some priority here. Never mind the fisherman’s and poor boater’s health.

There used to be a lot of birds around those weed marshes. Now there’s hardly none. And the ponds! There’s few birds, and there’s not many turtles that don’t have a load of algae on their shells.

One course’s ponds were so polluted a few years back that the algae looked like a green carpet laid from edge to edge.

Well, are there any organic golf courses? Or is the competition so great for playable turf and pristine greens that natural weed and fungus inhibitors escapes a management plan?

South Carolina Flooding Wetlands

It’s time for the state to abandon projects such as Interstate 73 after seeing all the damage from the recent hurricane: there’s been a lot of trees that fell and a lot of flooding.

What makes the state believe that flooding of urban areas is not being caused by the filling of wetlands, heightened new roads, and putting more concrete pilings in drainage basin areas?

Before building any more roads, an environmental impact study should include what hindrances there will be to water drainage — when all those waterways are filled with dirt, concrete piers, and steel rebar.

Water from higher ground has to go somewhere and eventually make its way to the Atlantic Ocean or be absorbed. Otherwise it will back up like it did all the way over Route 9 and several other major thoroughfares.

And thinking about the Atlantic Ocean; now there’s been some statement about the ocean rising. Has someone gone out in the middle and measured the depth from top to bottom?

Anyone considered that all the concrete slabs on the perimeter lands are pressuring the ocean to rise? Like throwing boulders on wet sand.
Well, sure the water rises from displacement.

And the chemicals the military continue to spray aren’t helping matters (before and during the storm) because the spray not only fuels the storm’s tenacity but blocks the sun’s rays from drying up the water on the ground — stifling crop and forestry production to absorb water — and makes everyone sick.

Something needs to change, and if the state Department of Health isn’t going to help by protesting air pollution, seismic testing, I-73, and unneeded road construction, then we need a local environmental protection group to form and mandate impact studies before anymore damage to the land, sea, air, and local waterways occurs. This doesn’t even mention the light, electrical, and emf pollution traveling the land. It’s no wonder the turtles and fish find somewhere else to lay eggs and feed – the Strand looks like a meteor shower parked on the beach to ward off predators.

Citizens, wildlife, and even the land are suffering.
