FW: E-M:/ Highlights from the North Woods Call

Enviro-Mich message from "Jeff" <traverse@traversemagazine.com>


It's great to see Glen Sheppard get some credit on Enviro-Mich. All
Michiganders owe him a debt of gratitude for his unflagging commitment to
the environment.

Is it too commercial of me to suggest that the best way to reward his
commitment is with a subscription to his newspaper? I have no ties to the
paper but like to see people compensated for a job well done. You'll reward
yourself too, by subscribing to a paper you actually look forward to

 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!
