Voice: Detractors must realize canal cables there to save lives

March 16, 2001

Walter Tylenda's letter to the Imperial Valley Press on March 5 in reference to the recently approved lifesaving cables pathetically reflects Proverbs 21:30. In God's word, "human wisdom, brilliance, insight — they are of no help if the Lord is against you."

Going back to the 1960s, when enough auto tragedies took place at the Aten and Dogwood intersection, including the sad loss of a young daughter from the Necochea family of Calexico, four-way stop signs were finally installed at that intersection to help prevent more statistics. Is it that complicated to understand that the lifesaving cables are solely for a human cause of minimizing the losses of immigrant lives from drowning in the All-American Canal?

Tylenda, no different than David Boniface of Calexico, likes to use big dictionary words with aims to impress and bully with his self-proclaimed intelligence yet lacking wisdom and human heart, losing complete focus of human value and advertising Proverbs 26:12, which says, "The most stupid fool is better off than someone who thinks he is wise when he is not."

I praise Dr. John Hunter for his marvelous pursuit of the lifesaving cables, his committee (David Dhillon, Blake Miles, Roberto Rubio, Bill Wallace), the Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors (Stella Mendoza, Bruce Kuhn, Rudy Maldonado, Andy Horne) and everyone out there like these people above who have regard for human life on account of a God who truly does exist.
