JACKSON The Asian longhorned beetle is one of the latest exotic pests to
make
it
to the shores of the United States and state officials are worried the
insect could have a devastating effect on Michigan trees if it gets loose
here.

After living in Jackson county for eight years, I must wonder if the beetle
will be worse then the road commissions and DNR in Michigan.  After all,
with a mandated timber harvest of nearly 900,000 cords, I doubt that the
beetle could do such damage in one year.

Perhaps we should rename it the Russel Harding/LLCoolJ/John Engler Beetle.
At least then, folks who care about the environment would have an idea of
what damage may come.
