The Landowners’ Voice: Let’s Clean Up Our Legacy Before It Becomes An Albatross Around Our Neck [Guest Post]

Guest Contributor Introduction From Joseph Triepke:

Long time Infill Thinking readers may recall several guest posts from their fellow member Schuyler Wight over the years. He first wrote in back in 2017 when local sand mines were becoming his new neighbors left and right. He wrote in again in 2018 with water on his mind and then again last year with thoughts on the Pecos County Sinkhole Mess.

If you are new to Infill Thinking, Schuyler’s family has owned a large cattle ranch for over a century in Winkler County. Schuyler spends his days managing all facets of his family’s YT Ranch, including working cattle by horseback. He knows the land, the politics, the wildlife, and the oil business out here better than most.

We believe the landowner’s voice in West Texas is of great importance and does not get enough airtime. So any time Schulyer mentions that something is on his mind, we are keen to hear him out and platform his perspective. We hope the industry will hear Schuyler’s latest take and hear it well.

There’s a lot more to this story…
