E-M:/ Forester speaks out

An article interviewing retiring DNR Area Forest Manager, Jerry Divine,
which appeared in the 5/28/97 edition of the Reporter Newspaper (Iron River,
Mi.) is quite interesting.

Part of that article relates where one of Mr Divine's misgivings is that
while environmentally acceptable land use practice in Michigan has been
determined to be our most critical need, and was endorsed by the governor,
Divine goes on to say that the governor's actions are contrary to his words
as he continues to dilute environmental laws, alienate resource-minded
professionals, and promote big business and short-term financial gains for a
few, at the mercy of our environment.


I think this article is must reading for those fighting Governor Engler's
actions.
