To the Editor:

 Water rights’ owners of Oregon beware. 

 I have two years seniority and my neighbor still takes my water “at will.” All authorities here ignore my plea for help.

 Watermasters say they can’t do anything. The Sheriff’s Office won’t do anything. The game commission won’t do anything.

 This has been going on for a decade and more. It seems like a waste of our tax money to budget money for them.

 Cut the budgets in Grant County.

 I thought water rights were a law. No one here will uphold the law for me. Anyone moving to Oregon beware.
