E-M:/ Highlights from the North Woods Call

Enviro-Mich message from <anne.woiwode@sfsierra.sierraclub.org>

 I have frequently provided snippets from the North Woods Call, the 
 publication of Glen Sheppard and his no doubt long suffering wife, Mary 
 Lou, and wanted to pull out a few highlights from the current issue 
 (November 15).
 "KLCool reported given walking papers; has until January to quit"
 Citing "insiders", Shep reports that Cool has been given a choice of 
 finding a new job or getting fired -- causes are pending deficit in Fish 
 and Game Fund, misuse of conservation officers and boats for a personal 
 trip to Isle Royale in 1998, and other problems.
 "Engler setback spurs drive for next governor"  Best quote of the day from 
 an anonymous "wildlife guy": "The fat puppy (Engler) is road kill."
 Editorial: "Forests: Strange allies fight for them"  Sierra Club volunteer 
 Tim Flynn gets kudos along with some DNR foresters and wildlife biologists 
 (not named) for moving increasingly in the same direction, in particular 
 opposing the timber mandate, and identifying and supporting protection of 
 special features "like wildlife habitat and old growth that logging would 
 sacrifice".  It ends with "Thanks, Tim Flynn and Sierra Club!"
 So, my bias shows -- enjoy!
